Know Any Literary Animal Lovers?

Hi there PureJeevan readers! We wanted to let you know that Jim's new novel CHROO is available on Amazon. It's a crazy adventure involving a billionaire heiress, her Chihuahua BFF ("Chroo") and a host of human and animal characters. Find out more on Amazon! Here are some links:

Jim here (again!) A little over a month ago, we couldn t contain our excitement about an online contest to win the best job EVER ? living as caretaker of a tropical island in Queensland, Australia, on the Great Barrier Reef for 6 months (and being paid $100k for the task!).

The deadline has come for this and, as we promised, we BOTH applied. You saw my video, below. Here's Wendi's application. Once again, we hope you'll view the video & rate her a 5!!! You can click the screenshot above, or go there directly via this link. (As I said below, I ve heard that the rating system can get a little screwy on that site ? that you need to wait for it to load and maybe mouse over the rating part first. But, a 5-star rating would really help, as would the traffic, even if you don t watch the entire video.)

As mentioned below, winning this job would mean postponing our rawsome RV tour by 6 months ? but we believe it would really enhance our tour in many ways as well. So, all fingers are crossed & we re relly stoked about this contest & the prospect of blogging and vlogging 6 months of sunny, raw Oz island life.

Thanks so much, Nita! We'll know in a little over a week, I think, whether
we made it into the group of eleven who will be further considered. :-)

Thanks for your support!

Lots of love to you,
