Breakfast & Giveaway with Best-Selling Author Michelle Cruz Rosado :)

Breakfast is served! Author Michelle Rosado's favorite smoothie!

Good morning, writers!

Yesterday we had special guest author Michelle Rosado talk with us about her book PURSUING YOUR DESTINY. It was a pleasure to interview Michelle and as a thank you for being our featured guest author this week, she is giving away a SIGNED COPY of her book, so be sure to enter to win :)

Today at the BB Writers Retreat, she's serving up for us her favorite breakfast smoothie recipe!

To make it vegan, Michelle skips the yogurt and adds a dash of almonds and flax seed.
