It’s been a week since my last post but my newest blog post is now live. I talked about what a business plan is, the difference between a plan and a book proposal, and what I’ve been doing as part of my business plan for my poetry chapbook “Can You Catch My Flow?” in regards to marketing and promotion. Come check it out and share your thoughts and book marketing and promotion experiences.

Check out my latest post. It briefly talks about promotions and business plans, with a great deal of focus on the importance of the word of mouth. More in depth content about promotions and business plans is expected for the next post. Come and share your thoughts and experiences on what you're doing to or how you promoted your book(s). http://iheartallstories.weebly.com/paving-my-road-of-storytelling-o...

Was away from vacation but now I'm back and with a new post status/update on publication routes. If you feel traditional publishing is the way to go, come over to the site and explain why. If you're a supporter of self-publishing, stop by as well. It's fine if you like to straggle both. Can't wait to hear from you and your thoughts about the art I've chosen as a bookcover. See below.

In the last post, I briefly touched on bookcover design based on what grabs a reader’s attention. How what we as readers find aesthetically pleasing piques our interest about the book itself. Basically, the bookcover design serves as the gateway to the possible acquisition of the product, the book. Come check it out: http://iheartallstories.weebly.com/paving-my-road-of-storytelling-o...

Authors, are you dreaming of Going to BookExpo America?

You'll want to read this!

Okay, so by now you know I share news about marketing efforts for Authors. - Why? I do this because I know first hand how hard it can be to get noticed. With that written, I am going to share with you another opportunity.

This opportunity comes in increments of 10. - Meaning if you are the 11th and final author to respond, you will not be able to participate but if you are the 11th out 20 authors to respond, you made the cut! - Get ready.

My friend is Carol Rogers and she is a book distributor. - She also sponsors spaces at various book fairs and events in New York throughout the year.

If any of you have looked at the price of going it alone to the Book Expo America 2015 - You know the following:

a. Spots are going fast.

b. It will cost you between,-1,200 to 2,500 USD not including lodging and food or the extras offered.

c. Anybody who is anyone in the industry usually attends this at least one.

d. It is possible to make a deal that will launch your career to a new level.

e. Hotels are booking fast for this event. I called two weeks ago and one hotel only had two rooms left.

Bottom line: Carol is sponsoring spaces that will rotate at her table. She is looking for 10 authors or 20 authors or 30 authors (you get the picture) who want the VIP package. The cost will be between $550 and $650. - That's more than 50% off you trying to do this alone.  - $300 is due by September 20, 2014. She will let you know the details.

Interested? - Contact Carol at cbbookdist@aol.com or ad.wwnp@gmail.com for more info.

Guess what? - I am taking the 1st slot. - Do I have 9 more authors that will join me?

The KINDLE Edition of my award winning children’s book “A Lesson My Cat Taught Me” is currently in the KINDLE Countdown mode, meaning the regular KINDLE price has been reduced for a brief period of time. The promotion ends at 11:00 PM GMT and PST on July 16, 2014. The price is currently only 99 cents [or the Pound equivalent]

The lesson the book tries to convey is the acceptance of others for who they are and not what they are. While the book is geared for children between the ages of 5 – 8, it's enjoyable by readers of any age. Here’s the information on the award my book received:  http://tinyurl.com/nrkprqe

Here are the links where the countdown is available

US: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IJKFKW6

UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IJKFKW6

These are the only two Amazon sites where this KINDLE Countdown is available.
