Welcome to ChaBooCha Lite 2015! #ChaBooChaLite


It's time for ChaBooCha Lite! It starts today!

For those of you who did not participate in ChaBooCha Lite last year and are wondering what it is, ChaBooCha Lite is a "light" version of the Chapter Book Challenge. ChaBooCha Lite is another chance to write an early reader, chapter book, middle grade book or YA novel within a month. The premise is the same as the premise of March's Chapter Book Challenge. (The Lite challenge will have less prizes and less guest blog posts.) You will still be trying to wr
ite your book during the 30 days of the month, but instead of running in March, ChaBooCha Lite runs in September. It's also completely acceptable for you to finish a book previously begun or to edit one you have already written, as long as you complete the work in September.

Feel free to peruse previous blog posts from a variety of published authors and agents. Here's a list of a selection of posts:

  26. The new report by Expert Market Research titled, ‘Global Oilfield Chemicals Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, gives an in-depth analysis of the global Oilfield Chemicals Market, assessing the market based on its segments like products, growth, applications, locations and major regions. The report tracks the latest trends in the industry and studies their impact on the overall market. The rising demand for oilfield chemicals can be attributed to the increase in exploration and oil production operations, buttressed by the efforts of government particularly in developing countries. For instance, oil and gas companies in India, like Petronet LNG, Indian Oil Co., ONGC announced expansion plans in the domestic gas & oil industry in February 2021 to accommodate the global consumer demand. The major players in the market are Halliburton Company, Kraton Corporation, Solvay SA, BASF SE, Clariant International Ltd., NuGenTec LLC, among others.
