I got the following from Kim at "PageFree Publishing, Inc." at email@example.com
. "Here is the process we use: 1) We notify LSI that we need a new imprint name - this would be the imprint you designate. 2) We use the ISBN you furnish, and the LSI/Ingram converts it to 13-digit (all our are 10-digit since bought so many not long ago). 3) We make sure your book shows up using your ISBN and imprint name. 4) When/if you withdraw the book from… Continue

"You get what you order" is the motto of my book "The Winning Helix".
Last week I received, once again, evidence this to be true.
I try to live according my own teachings and focus my energy there where I can win. Creativity, networking, helping others, trying to do everything I can to promote world peace are among those areas where I want to use my energy.
So last week I received a VIP invitation to the Globeforum in Stockholm as a "Global Influential Female Leader"!!!!… Continue

Someone in the film industry asked me to do a “pitch and a “treatment” for my novel, Horizons Past ( http://www.horizonspast.com ). He has a couple of ideas to try to get it into development as a movie. I had some notion of what a pitch is, but I’d never heard of a treatment. Fortunately, he gave me some examples and illustrations to follow. But I decided to buy Writing Treatments That Sell, by Kenneth Atchity and Chi-Li Wong to… Continue

Today was my Amazon campaign. What a crazy day. Everything that could go wrong did. One of my JV partners with a list of 50,000, had problems with his email system and could'nt send any emails out today. Then another JV partner ,who uses the same system, had the same problem! I happen to use this system too,so I sent frantic emails to tech support. Finally around 7:00 pm they were able to resolve some of the issues. But I don't think the partner with the 50,000 emails has all of the problems… Continue

Okay, on this game board of life, I'm jumping into publishing now
with both feet. I've read some of the books, (thank you Kremer,
Reiss, Poynter, Levine and some others), and have run a lot
of numbers. I've even got my first employee and looking for free work
from my husband.
What I want to know about now is: Talk to me About Distribution. Do you
have a wholesaler? What type of distributor did you enlist? Do we need
them? Can you share some bad… Continue

Hello Fellow Authors,
This is my friend, Christina Rowe, working on her amazon.com best-seller campaign. We are sitting in the Barnes and Noble in Freehold, N.J. brainstorming ways to get the word out. Christina is doing her best-seller campaign on Thursday, April 12, 2007, which also happens to be her birthday. Having a number one best-seller would be a great birthday present, huh? What is exciting about Christina's campaign is that she is… Continue

Last week I experienced a side of writing/publishing/marketing I never knew existed. My mother-in-law, Rita Kerr, asked me to accompany her to an adult education class entitled “Writing, Publishing & Marketing Your 1st Book (or 7th)” offered by a local school district. It was quit an eye opener to learn the author teaching the class claimed to make $250,000 per year self-publishing and… Continue

In order to see things from different perspectives, I have been known to ‘experiment’ at times.
When I was 19, I wanted to see how handicapped people were really treated. I went to Manhattan with a girlfriend and ‘posed’ as a blind person for a day. It was an extremely enlightening experience. Only a ‘non-New Yorker’ will stereotype a typical New Yorker as being heartless for that day proved to me why I am proud to be a New Yorker. I had strangers help me on all counts with not one… Continue
