Finding balance between promotion and pestering

I'm brand new to the book publishing game.  I've managed to figure things out as I go along, and released my first book last week.  So now comes the promotion side of things, which I feel a lot less confident about.I've never worked in sales.  I've always thought that I would be pretty useless at any sort of job that involved marketing, because I think I'd worry that I was bothering people.  Yet now I've got this newly released book that I'm really proud of, so how to make sure that it gets in front of people without becoming a pain in the butt?  I also need to consider that my target audience is very specific.  My book is non-fiction aimed at people living with mental illness, and it's not ...

Marcel and Oswald


The original idea for writing this post was to say thanks and reflect with a few figures on the launch and the journey of my book A World Without Color in 2017. That I will do as planned, but first I must let you know about something that happened on the last day of 2017.With deep regret and sadness in my heart I have to tell you that Oswald, the beautiful cat from the cover of my book, has passed away. I learned that in the early afternoon hours of December 31st, 2017 and spilled many tears that day.Zach Singh, a New York-based photographer, and his cat Oswald brought the story of my beloved cat Marcel to life. Marcel had passed away on April 19, 2006 and left me heartbroken. Last year I br...

The long journey is over and I have reached my destination!

Getting personal with David Simpson


Ok I’m going to do this interview a little different that the rest and open with something David Simpson said to me about his interview…..“One of the main purposes of an author doing interviews is to reach out to new people, hopefully sell a few more books and maybe make some fans. I’m not a good salesman, it seems weird to pimp my own book but here is some information about it if you are interested. The book is free if you have KU and only three bucks on Amazon. I got the phenomenal Eric Shelman to do the narration for the audio version and it’s only $1.99. He really brings the characters to life. Paperback is available also at cost, I make nothing from it. The book was released in February...

To Review or Not To Review

st bernard
Once upon a time many moons ago I scribbled all sorts of things for a living. I wrote for radio and television, magazines, my newspaper column, brochures, leaflets, mayoral speeches, company reports, promotions, advertisements etc. etc. etc. you get the picture?One learned to be flexible earning enough to feed, house and clothe two children, a husband, a St Bernard and the family who lived out the back and took care of the house and garden.Of course I read books too. I would rush to the local library at least once a week and emerge balancing a tower of books which I devoured at every spare moment – in the usual places – the bathroom, in bed, waiting for a parking place, during meal times.

Spotlight on The Paradise Coven


I’m happy to spotlight a new release from Bentley Wells.I have written mostly nonfiction for academic and reference publishers most of my adult life. For instance, I have written articles for journals, chapters for books, entries for encyclopedias, and several books. All required research, which I enjoy doing.When I wrote The Paradise Coven, which is my first mystery, I used the pseudonym Bentley Wells, to honor my late mother. I set the story in a city that I’m somewhat familiar with (years ago, I lived there for several months). Even though I remembered certain parts of it, I researched the city to make sure what I remembered was correct. Furthermore, I researched particular characters’ ar...

Looking for a good book?


 Avid readers are always looking for a “good” book. Of course what makes a book good to one reader is not necessarily going to appeal to the next, but we all search for that sometimes elusive read that will have us turning the pages into the wee hours of the night. We read reviews, seek out books on-line, watch for our favorite authors latest releases, and most importantly look for suggestions from fellow readers for word of mouth is said to be the best advertising off all. And so I present three books I’ve read recently for your consideration.     French Rhapsody by Antoine LaurainA letter that arrives 33 years late, a rock band that missed a chance to touch fame, the members of that group ...

My Favorite #Books #AtoZChallenge #amreading


Welcome to my own version of April’s “A to Z Blog Challenge” – a list of 26 of my favorite books, connected as well as possible to the letters of the alphabet.  This is not really the way the blogging challenge is supposed to work, but I simply don’t have the time or stamina to post every day for 26 days.  So I’ve done similar posts in the past instead, focusing the past two years on A to Z Game of Thrones characters and places in anticipation of the spring premiers of the television show, but this year, much to my dismay, it won’t return until summer (plus, I’ve done it twice already—if you’re a fan of the shows or books, the links are here and here).  So here are some books that truly pull...
