Hi Carol,
You're right about marketing being a major effort. Fortunately it is one I am finally excited about. I found some great infomation which Phil Davis posted on his website, I now feel like I am coming together with a an organized and comprehensive marketing plan after floundering for some time wondering what to make of the whole thing. He helped me develop goals, specify my target audience, develop a strategy and tactics in just a few days. I have decided to focus first on blogging and MySpace. I have been blogging for a while at in the form of a dialogue with my muse. MySpace has baffled me every time I have tried to approach it. I read about the benefits of social networking, but could not make much sense of MySpace and how to use it effectively. Yesterday I found a book by Dennis Prince called How to Make Money with MySpace. This is a very well organized book which got me on track and has left me feeling that MySpace will be a valuable resource for me. I hope I'm not rambling. But as you might be able to see, I am excited about where things are headed.
Best regards,

Hi Ted. I'm looking forward to learning more about your book (or series.) One thing I wonder about is whether it would be better to think of inviting rather than leading people to introspective journeys. Perhaps it is a small difference, but it might engender less resistence to what is of necessity a daunting task. Just a thought.
