Something About Me and My Book:
I am the founder of Rest Ministries, a Christian organization that provides encouragement programs, resources and publications to improve their quality of life, including National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week.

Through marketing on the internet since 1997, I have reached millions and sold many self-published books. People kept coming to me to ask what I did and how I did it, so I've put together some of my best tips in my first ebook at . I've also had the opportunity to help people come up with marketing ideas for their book proposals at writers conferences and CLASS and have spoken on book marketing.

Some of my web sites include:
