‘Tis The Season

By |2018-11-30T14:15:40+00:00October 31, 2018|Writing|Comments Off on ‘Tis The Season

It is common knowledge among my family and friends that I’m in love with this time of year. I don’t know what it is about October, but there is something about this month that makes me feel warm and giddy. It doesn’t matter if the weather doesn’t perfectly cooperate with my seasonal hopes and dreams (although I would much prefer cooler temperatures and rainy days), I still feel enraptured by fall’s embrace.

To me, the beginning of fall means the holiday season is right around the corner. October ushers in seasonal change that brings cooler weather, beautiful decorations, special time with family and friends, and just general congeniality between strangers. Just as the leaves begin to change, so do our priorities and focus. Fall seems to ignite a flame that warms our hearts and minds as we approach Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I am partial […]

Finding Inspiration in a Dry Season

I never imagined myself living in the desert. Born and raised in Orange County, California, I believed that my life would always exist within a certain radius. While we experienced our fair share of heat waves, there was some reassurance in the knowledge that the beach was just a short drive away. The cool coastal breeze and marine layer could temporarily relieve any discomfort caused by summer’s warm embrace.

My life trajectory changed drastically when I met my now husband. Committing to a man who owed at least three years to the Air Force meant that we were no longer the masters of our fate, and that fate was destined for Tucson.

We moved to the Old Pueblo in the middle of June 2014, and I was not prepared for the heat. June heat is unrelenting. Cool mornings […]

Fast-Paced Compelling Work of Fantasy Causes Us to Question Reality

By |2018-05-31T11:04:01+00:00May 31, 2018|News, Publishing|Comments Off on Fast-Paced Compelling Work of Fantasy Causes Us to Question Reality

Tucson. AZ – May 31, 2018 – Wheatmark, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Moodus Noises by Davis L. Temple. This fast-paced, compelling work of fantasy causes you to question modern reality and offers poignant critical commentary on our nation, its history, and the repercussions of what it means to be both an American and a human being.

The violent history of colonialism has plagued the American psyche for centuries. Some ghosts, however, are never laid to rest. When the Pequot Indians, exterminated by the white man in 1637, return to modern-day Connecticut to exact revenge upon the white man and his former allies, the Mohegan Indians, a violent supernatural confrontation erupts.

A beautiful summer’s day in the small village of Moodus is suddenly disrupted when a local man is discovered not only dead, but scalped; two others have […]

Wheatmark Announces New True Crime Release

By |2018-03-29T11:09:19+00:00July 3, 2017|Publishing|Comments Off on Wheatmark Announces New True Crime Release

True Story of a Serial Killer Released

Tucson, AZ – July 3, 2017 — Wheatmark, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Terror in Ypsilanti: John Norman Collins Unmasked by Gregory A. Fournier. This book relates in detail the story of Michigan serial killer John Norman Collins.

Between the summers of 1967 through 1969, before the term serial killer was coined, a predatory killer stalked the campuses of Eastern Michigan University and the University of Michigan seeking prey until he made the arrogant mistake of killing his last victim in the basement of his uncle’s home. All-American boy John Norman Collins was arrested, tried, and convicted of the strangulation murder of Karen Sue Beineman. The other murders attributed to Collins never went to trial, with one exception, and soon became cold cases.

With the benefit of fifty years of hindsight, hundreds […]

Historical Fiction about Famous Crusader Released

By |2018-03-29T11:09:19+00:00July 1, 2017|Publishing|Comments Off on Historical Fiction about Famous Crusader Released

Tucson, AZ – July 3, 2017 — Wheatmark, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Envoy of Jerusalem: Balian d’Ibelin and the Third Crusade by Helena P. Schrader. This is the newest historical fiction novel by Schrader, and it follows the life of the famous crusader noble Balian of Ibelin.

Hollywood made him a blacksmith; Arab chronicles said he was “like a king.”

He served a leper, but defied Richard the Lionheart.

He fought Saladin to a standstill, yet retained his respect.

Rather than dally with a princess, he married a dowager queen— and founded a dynasty.

He was a warrior and a diplomat both: Balian d’Ibelin

Balian has survived the devastating defeat on the Horns of Hattin, and walked away a free man after the surrender of Jerusalem, but he is baron of nothing in a kingdom that no longer exists. Haunted by […]

New Guide to Weight Loss Now Available

By |2018-03-29T11:09:19+00:00June 27, 2017|Publishing|Comments Off on New Guide to Weight Loss Now Available

Tucson, AZ – June 27, 2017 — Wheatmark, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Immaculate Consumption: The Path to Lifelong Weight Management by Deena Solomon. This program approaches weight loss scientifically and in a refreshing new light.

Did you know that the $600 billion-a-year global weight loss industry has a 95 percent failure rate for weight loss sustainability?

Immaculate Consumption: The Path to Lifelong Weight Management offers a scientifically based weight loss program designed to empower dieters to achieve long-lasting results. After years of yo-yo dieting and spinning wheels trying various commercial diets, author Deena Solomon was unhealthy and emotionally disheartened. She realized the traditional weight loss methodology — blind adherence to rules, forbidden foods, mandatory compliance — failed to adequately prepare dieters to adapt to the ever-changing temptations, often leading to an unrecoverable relapse.

The Immaculate Consumption method is […]

‘Tis the Season . . . for Author Ordering

By |2018-03-29T11:09:20+00:00October 6, 2016|News, Publishing, Writing|Comments Off on ‘Tis the Season . . . for Author Ordering

It is hard to believe that another year is already winding down, which means that the holiday season is right around the corner. As the hustle and bustle of life begins to ramp up the closer we approach Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is normal to try and get ahead on our holiday shopping. The quest to find the perfect gifts for the ones we love is often an annual tradition of fighting traffic, battling unending lines and searching for the best deals, while never feeling completely satisfied with your final choice.

For our authors who want to avoid the shopping chaos, what could be better than giving someone the gift of reading? While I may be biased, I believe books can be some of the most cherished presents, particularly when the giver is the writer. Some of the most precious gifts I have received have been personally created or designed by […]

Tips for Successful Blogging

By |2018-03-29T11:09:22+00:00January 26, 2015|Marketing, Resources, Social Media|Comments Off on Tips for Successful Blogging

As the marketing specialist for Wheatmark, I have the privilege to work alongside many authors as they take their first steps into the unfamiliar world of blogging and social media. For those individuals with little to no experience in this area, this step toward marketing themselves can feel rather daunting and unattainable. This feeling, however, is not unordinary. Maintaining a blog and staying committed to promoting your brand takes a great deal of effort, but having a persistent attitude and an openness to learning will allow you to be more successful in the long run.

I recently stumbled across an article with a list of valuable tips to help you become a successful blogger. Out of the 19 tips provided, here are five that I believe are the most useful:

1. Make sure you have an About page that represents who you are and what you do.
Who you are is entirely unique, […]
