Obscene Profit Break: The Z FIles: The Guide to Comfortable Spelling Bee and Scrabble preparation

 Now available for both the Kindle and the Nook. (And the Kindle and Nook emulators for your computer which are free to download!)

Here's the link to the Kindle page.

If you're trying to memorize words so you can do well at Scrabble tourneys or Spelling Bees (whether for adults or kids) you know how tedious studying can be. Trying to learn long lists of words - bor-ring!

With The Z Files, the first of 26 books in the series, you will find every word that begins with Z in the Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary 11th edition and the Official Scrabble Dictionary, 4th edition.  (Definitions are given - and they are original.)

The Z Files is a story within a story. A successful author, whose goal is to win both a Scrabble tournament and a Spelling Bee tournament (specifically the AARP National Spelling Bee in Cheyenne!) finds that she learns words best by reading them over in over in a fictional setting.

So she starts writing a book  and incorporates all Z words. It's a mystery, featuring Michelle Bravo, the owner of Bravo Chemical Solutions, who must face deal with industrial spies and murders. The author of the book, Tracy McAlpine, must deal with her husband looking over her shoulder offering helpful advice.
