Patience Really Is A Virtue

Anyone who has ever worked with me can attest that there is usually a method to my madness. As in painting, I study the composition and take in everything. Starting from the outside in, I get to know the author and their work so I can add the ‘heartbeat’ to their work. Sound strange? It isn’t but it creates an awful problem for me… authors are not patient clients.

I have heard it all and it always ends with: ‘… but I am so impatient’.

Well, think of this: it is very… Continue

After months of researching, writing, editing, design, layout and proofing...Great Dates Orlando is finally ready for release on May 18th!

With production behind me, my main focus is marketing. I'm creating my press kit, networking, and looking for creative ways to get my book out there.

I took a thought from Jach Cranfields "Success Principles" and that is to use the LAW OF 5....Every day I must do 5 things to promote myself and my book. This his how Jack made Chicken Soup for…

The N Word

My aunt who is at least twenty years my senior recently asked me a question that took me by surprise. It was a question that immediately touched and ignited my spirit. Her question to me was what is the difference between a white person using the N word and black person using the N word ? My answer to them was that there is a very big difference and I took the time out to explain to them…

My spirit was very troubled as I listened to the news and heard the story of a twelve year old girl that was shot in the back. The girl was shot at a party between the hour of 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. The shooting along was in and of itself enough to…

Dirty Bombs

It seems that the war in Iraq is a never ending saga that has now taken on a life of its own and seems surreal. Many of our troops have been killed since this war started. Now the rate of troops that are being killed is reaching staggering amounts because of the use of dirty bombs that are getting more deadly as the…

Whale Song and Oprah

Today I sent off another email to my dear friend Oprah. Okay, I'll admit, she's not really my friend (yet!), since I've never met her and she doesn't know I exist. But I admire her and want to be her friend. I have renewed admiration for her after watching the show on the girls' school in Africa that she built. What an amazing, awe-inspiring gift she has given. She shared a powerful message with me through that show. I want to donate my books, visit the school and share my dream of… Continue

Stero Typical Words

If you have not been under a rock in recent weeks then I am sure that you have heard about a growing controversy in this country that have come to the forefront do to the comments of Dona Amus. The controversy involves mostly people of African decent who have been very vocal about their opposition and come out very strongly on the use of words that usually have a negative and stereo…

Book Excerpt From My Upcoming Book: Winning The Game of Business: The Entreprenuer's Quest For Ultimate Success


This book began long before I actually sat down to write. It began the morning I decided to change the direction of my life. I call this my defining moment.

Back then; I was 22 years old and going nowhere fast. I had no money, no place to live, no car, and no job. I had alienated my family and friends. My dad was a successful businessman, but I had spent years separating myself from him. He did not know how to emotionally connect with many people, especially me,… Continue

A Group Writing Effort

Our writing group, Daedalus, has undertaken an interesting project. This group of five women college/high school professors plus me, meets monthly to critique each other's work. We are the distillate of probably three-dozen former members who came and went over the last twelve years. Our membership stabilized about five years ago and seems destined to continue into the…

Print-on-Demand companies, Comparison, recommendations?

I will be using a Print on Demand service for most of the books we'll publish...

I was considering using BookSurge, because it is the one most closely associated with Amazon...but I ordered a few books that use BookSurge, and was not impressed with the quality of the look and feel of the books.

Have you used/compared the different print-on-demand options?

Any recommendations, based on the quality of the final…

To click or not to click

I am sure all of you have heard recently in the news about the car crash that involved the New Jersey Governor John Corizine. Corizine was badly injured and required multiple surgeries to treat his multiple injuries and was on a respirator for a while. Corizine’s injuries were a result of riding in the back seat of an SUV and he was…

May Day

It is that time of year that marks the anniversary of the protest, marches, and demonstrations in this county. These events that are in primarily Hispanics communities are used to show unity and support for Hispanic culture and issues. It is also used for many immigrants in the community to show their opposition to the state and federal laws that they consider to be unfair. Most of these…

John---Thanks for the succinct list of book publishing options in your current newsletter (05-01-07). I can offer one variant to the list: Starting your own publishing company, but letting a POD publisher, who will allow you to use your own imprint (and ISBN, if you want) but do the distribution, obtain ISBN & Bar Code, file for copyright, fulfillment and some marketing for you. To me, this seems a good option because it allows an individual presence while being efficient of time. I plan to… Continue

Marketing Ideas for Kids books (with a niche)?

My "jefe" and I are starting up a small publishing company for children's books, focusing on books with a distinctly Latin flavor for Hispanics in the US (we are working from Monterrey, Mexico).

Our first book (about Halloween/Day of the Dead) will be coming out this late summer.

But for marketing ideas...we're at square zero.

Any help out there?

Selling Books on the New York City Subway

The following post is excerpted from Fred Gleeck's ezine, Fred Gleeck Insights. Fred is a great marketer. He tells a great story here:

I love New York! One of the days when I was running around like a chicken

with it's head cut off on the subway I saw this guy hawking something

further down the subway car. In my typical NYer style I averted my

gaze, hoping not be accosted to give him money.

Lucky I couldn't do it. I squinted…

Publishing Blues

My artist wife wrote a book for artists - Passion and Paint in Creating "Great Art". We did our own layout work using Microsoft Office Publisher, and a computer we had built especially for graphics work. I am printing the books on a Xerox laser printer and binding them with equipment from the Maping Co. in Finland. This has been an enjoyable process, and the finished product is quite satisfying. Marketing, to date, is neither enjoyable nor satisfying.

We "put together" a…

Looking for a distributor/need advice

Hello Everyone,

I am looking for a distributor. I do have the names of several, but it seems that most of the authors I speak to are not happy with the distributor they have. I have heard stories of books being sent back at the author's expense and not much of a profit being made.

Right now my book is only at and on my website, but I have had people email me telling me that they looked for it in Barnes and Noble and couldn't find it, so I guess now would be a good…
