I've just created my first competition on my website.
I'm hoping it will be another great way to get readers interested in my book. The competition gives away some products that are associated with my book.
Will let you know how it goes!

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

Well, I am still tired from an exciting and busy weekend, but I have to let everyone know that the launch for my latest novel Whale Song was a complete success. In fact South Point Chapters in Edmonton SOLD OUT of their stock. It's a good thing I had a few copies on me!! :) 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

Hi to all,
I am in difficulties.
I don't know how to post a posting on the forum.
The link I get on my email stating I have a message does not tell me from whom it is.
Most times the link does not work, even when I press Ctrl and then click, resulting in a message to say that the server cannot be found.
When I go on this site, I cannot find where to reply to those I know who they are - is it on my page, on their page or on the forum.
So, Help Help Help.

Peter Matthiessen came to town two weeks ago for a reading and a literary luncheon. This was his second visit sponsored by Gemini Ink of San Antonio, Texas. He gave a writing class during his first appearance over five years ago, which I attended. Afterward we had a short visit about the Aransas Wildlife Refuge and about fly-fishing for Redfish on Texas' Laguna Madre flats. I sent him a letter confirming some of our thoughts on a possible visit.
I was quite amazed when I… Continue

Even though my book - From the Promised land to the Lucky Country is doing well on Amazon, I cannot see it in any other book page on Amazon in-house recommendations.
What I mean to say is that it does not show on other book pages as a recommended to be read when one bought a similar book, or that people who bought another book of the same type bought also my book and so on. I can only see that the same books are always recommended. Does anyone know how does Amazon choose… Continue

Stephen King is raging mad. And that's not a good thing, since his mind conjures up some of the most evil things a man can do on a daily basis.
This time he's mad about a book he discovered -- "Fieldwork" -- that's apparently really good but no one wants to buy.
Here's what he says in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly that's a good lesson for all of us in publishing:
"The good news: it's a great story. If this is such a good read, what's the bad news? That's… Continue

Some people here still don't know what to do with friends -- whether or not to invite other members of the network to be their friends, why have friends, how to use them, etc. So, here's my advice:
First, collect friends. They make you look good. Plus friends can lead to real friendships and relationships. We can all use more friends.
Second, all friends become part of your address book so you can email them directly, either singly or in groups, if you have a message to… Continue
