Hi Todd,
Thanks for the invite. I worked with more than a few guys like yourself over the years. I was the tech or mechanic and they would come up with the plan for the unfixable machine or system. Together we'd attempt the impossible and get the thing functioning again whatever it was.
I find writing and speaking much more enjoyable! For me any way.
I aimed wrong for years but was good at things regardless. But writing is easier on the knuckles.
Take care,

Thank you for the invite, Todd. If you know any military families or ("good ol' American patriots") feel free to share my book blog with them at! As a military mother and Christian author, this has become a ministry for me. :) Lucy Cain

Hi Todd! Thanks for the invitation. Just curious. What is it about me that intrigues you that you would like to share stuff? I look forward to getting to know you better and learning from you.

I loved Austin, Texas, and actually Austin is one city on my list of places to possibly relocate to when my Turkey venture has become too much.
Are you blogging your book??

What is the name of your book? What is its treatise? Is it nonfiction?

Thanks for the invite Todd! You sound like a business man we can all learn from. I speak often at early childhood conferences to help daycare providers understand how to think like a business person so I'll be looking forward to reading your stuff and getting some new ideas!
Best to you,
Patricia Dischler

Hey, Todd! Nice to meet you! What is your nonprofit experience? I am just now ready to move out on a program we have developed and tested for business community mentors to mentor high schools kids in advisory periods. Check us out at It a light dawns, call and let's talk!

Hi Todd,
Thanks for inviting me. Your have a great background for a self-help book. I agree with Karina who suggested getting a domain name right away.

You're smart to be thinking about the marketing early. There are lots of interesting twists in this business, like the fact B&N won't even consider a small press book until it's actually published.
You might check the library for dates to market your book like National Boss's Day or something. Planning ahead makes a difference!

Thanks to you all for responding so quickly. I'm new to book publishing and your warm welcomes sure calm a lot of my fears. My book is called "Blitz the Ladder." It's in the business/self-help genre. It's an innovative team-based approach to career management that focuses on perception management. I've spent a few years on it, including two years to test it out in two organizations. I know it works. I talk about some of it on MySpace at Please feel free to provide any comments or criticisms (i.e. required for improvement).

I do have an agent. We'll begin editing in a month or so. As for a publisher, not yet. I need to figure the marketing part out first. Any help is most appreciated.

Kindest Regards,

Todd: I'm finding this kind of fun, though I didn't know what I was getting into when I registered. I just came on to leave a comment on a friend's page! That means I may not be the most active friend in town but maybe I'll learn slowly. (-:

Very best,
