Is Romance a forgotten Art??


Is romance a forgotten Art? I write this because I'm promoting Chef Robert and Barb Catherine's romantic cookbook called Romantic Dinners For Two.

We have distribution in place and are now finally getting into the major book stores. Chef Robert and Barb are always seeking book festival invitations and show…

Day 22 of VBT: Whale Song inspires a different kind of global 'warming'

Today I am visiting Climate of our Future, a wonderful site that is dedicated to informing and education people on all aspects of our envirnment and how it affects our world.

When Climate of our Future first asked to host me on my ‘Touring the World’ virtual book tour, I hesitated. Not because I don’t like the site (I DO!), but because I was trying to think of a way to segue their theme into Whale Song, writing or my other suspense novels. I’ll…

In a world that overexposes children to the ugly evils in society, it is so important to instill good moral values and examples to the next generation. We the adults, need to allow our children to be children, innocent and pure. We need to keep them from growing up too soon, we need to shelter them from the ugliness of the world. They need to be taught love and the value of human life. They need to know and understand that we are all different, yet, all the same, we are…

Do you need articles for your blog or Web site?

Having articles about your topic of interests can help drive visitors to your blog or Web site. I have more than 100 articles posted at

I have a wide variety of topics to choose from. Some are humorous, some spiritual in nature; others on home remodeling, vacationing or holidays.

These do not cost you anything. All I ask is that you keep the resource box in tact.

Anyone need a book trailer created?

A video trailer for your book is a powerful way to get a message across to your readers. With Youtube being so popular these days, you are sure to get exposure when you post a book trailer there.

Once you post it on Youtube, you can copy the html to any site you like and have it play directly from there.

Spend Less, Tell More Stories

Seth Godin always has interesting points to make. In his post today at his blog, he made the following point, one that I've been trying to get through to people for a very long time:

"The art of marketing is not finding more money to do more marketing. It's figuring out how to tell a story that spreads with the resources you've got."

So many self-publishers and new authors want to throw money at… Continue

Learm from the experience...

Today I was viewing some posts on another writers site I pop in on from time to time. I was surprised to see a complaint from a writer regarding a harsh rejection letter he had received. Oh, I know thats nothing unusual, but he posted the letter as well and if what the publishers rep said was true, he should be ashamed of himself. The mistakes mentioned were of the type that would/could/ and should have been…
