Isn't it an intriguing picture? Do you happen to know who the artist is... other than Lynne? I have two blue-eyed granddaughters and I'm trying to get my daughter-in-law, who is a photographer, to take a pic of one of them to see if she can capture the same... aura, then I won't have to worry about using the picture without permission.
Margie, how is the book marketing coming? We are back from our trip to Turkey and we are ready to work hard for our author clients. We just got a new client from Mississippi who is an expert in wildlife. She has a regular column in several magazines and she is anxious to get PR. There is lots to do for her. Call me when you are ready to talk. Lynda O'Connor 847-615-5462.
I'm kind of new at this site; when I accept a friend as "my friend" does that also mean I'm automatically one of their friends, too? I hope so, otherwise I've been accepting friendships, but not reciprocating!
Writing and distributing a press release is a must. I could do that for you and follow-up with those that express an interest in your book. I could also call 10 or 12 magazines and newspapers which target your audience. My fee for all of that would be $1200. I can't get you a book tour or speaking engagements for that amount. Why don't you call me to discuss. 847-615-5462.
Margie, we work on a project basis, an hourly basis or a retainer. You or I could write a press release and we could distribute it across the country to all of the media - radio, bloggers, magazines and newspapers. I will follow-up with those who express an interest in getting your book. I will arrange media interviews for you. I can also arrange book tours for you and some speaking engagements. Our minimum is $2000 for this, but $3000 can get you a lot of coverage. Every book is totally unique and I go after different markets with every project. There is a lot of work involved but I love getting success for my clients so I am motivated to work day and night.
I do, Franny, but I still have a healthy respect for the challenges! I have a very hard time not tinkering with my stories every time I read them. A word here, a phrase there! LOL I'm in the throws of some writing challenges - specific word counts or subjects to hit. Great ways to hone your writing muscles! I'm in the writer's seat this weekend for a suspense author's round robin through Writers in the Backseat. Should be fun. I also threw my hat in the ring for an auction piece for charity. I just hope a few more hours in the day arrive soon!
I just received a contract on my first children's book, First Spring. I'm pretty excited about that. Now I've got two opposite genres going and the marketing will be very different. I love a challenge. Hope I'm up for it.
Don't you just LOVE this job? I adore getting in the 'writer's mode' and pouring out my imagination on the computer. I get so excited when I finish a story, then sometimes feel sad it's done. I've edited, re-edited, and re-re-edited so many times I can't count them on my many novels, still finding something new to change or laughing/crying/getting angry at the villains, when I re-re-re-reread the stories. It's never ending fun!
It's a pleasure to meet you, Margie.
It's nice to have you as a friend. I look forward to chatting about marketing and production of our books. My first book, TROPICAL BALM is being released soon by RED ROSE PUBLISHING. I write mostly Paranormal Romantic Suspense, but have other genres as well as also writing non-fiction and erotica.
