This  biography presents the reader with a unique perspective on life through personal stories, advice, and life lessons from the author’s great-uncle.

Wilmot Lenn Petersen—a.k.a. “Uncle Bill”—was a live-off-the-land eccentric, dressing strangely and growing all he needed to live among the wilds of Nevada and Arizona. During his ninety years of life, he was a cowboy, wrangler, entrepreneur, pilot, turquoise miner, and geologist. After three failed marriages, he remarried and joyfully lived the remainder of his days.

The irrepressibly outspoken Uncle Bill tells his own story as collected over the decades of taped interviews by his great-niece, author Marion Petersen Koedyker. As she writes, “My great-uncle Bill (born in 1898) […]

Tucson, AZ – June 29, 2017 — Wheatmark, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Home at Last by DeWitt Smith. This author tells her story of starting over and succeeding in this thought-provoking memoir.

“The left side of my brain knew I was shooting page one photos for next week’s edition of the paper, and the right side felt overwhelmed by the emotion of seeing my home about to go out to sea.”

Author Barbara DeWitt Smith had a colorful childhood — outrageous costume and cocktail parties, a revolving door of nannies because the alcoholic stepmother couldn’t keep help, and a household filled with the eccentricities unique to rich people. This was her normal. She and her four sisters grew up with social status, money, and privilege. However, hidden underneath it all was an invisible and disturbing reality — […]

Are you, too, missing this marketing tool?

By |2018-03-29T11:09:19-07:00July 11, 2017|Marketing|Comments Off on Are you, too, missing this marketing tool?

Almost everyone you meet these days has a smart phone. And while the smart phone is one of the greatest new marketing tools, this phenomenon is contributing to one of the greatest marketing failures people commit every single day.

Let me explain:

Any new person you meet at a business mixer or social event can, technically, just tell you their phone number or email and you can simply enter it into your phone on the spot, right? Or save it in a voice memo.

So who really needs business cards these days?

Additionally, you can just have them enter your contact info into their phones when you meet them, right?

If only that were so easy….

For one, people you meet may not have time to give you their contact information and certainly no time to wait while you stumble around in your phone to open the right app. This happened to me recently and the […]

Character in AmericaWhat defines “good character” to the average American? Is it what one does when no one is looking? Is it moral certitude about one’s actions? Is it courage? Is it compassion? Can it be taught?

Restoring Character in America identifies the decline in character in our country, but then gives the reader hope for the future by showcasing leaders whose careers are successfully turning around this trend in our schools, communities, businesses, and the military.

The one-step method to make your website work

By |2018-03-29T11:09:21-07:00March 1, 2016|Marketing|Comments Off on The one-step method to make your website work

What’s the most efficient, as well as most effective, way to get from your couch to the fridge? Is it a shortcut such as taking a giant leap? Or is it taking a number of comfortable steps?

Walking, which is one step—and always and only one step—at a time, has been the winning transportation tactic employed by people since the dawn of time. Gliding and flying aren’t possible in a living room setting while jumping and leaping are just too energy consuming to make it worthwhile. If you kept exerting the amount of energy needed for jumping, you’d end up having to make more frequent trips to the fridge than otherwise needed. So “one step at a time” is the best way to get from your couch to the fridge.

What does this have to do with book marketing?

We take the one-step method granted when it comes to biped mobility, but we […]

Steps to Publishing a Book: The Timeline

By |2018-03-29T11:09:21-07:00October 1, 2015|Publishing|Comments Off on Steps to Publishing a Book: The Timeline

For first-time authors, the book publishing process can be a daunting one. Writing and publishing a book is not just a creative endeavor, it’s a job. As with any new job, there’s a learning curve. So to help you over the hump, the following is a step-by-step approach to the book publishing timeline:

Step One

You may be surprised to learn that the first step is not to write your book. We at Wheatmark encourage authors, even before they fire up their computer and crack their knuckles, to think seriously about who they believe is going to buy and read their book.

We sometimes hear, “This is a book anyone would want to read.” This is false. The best way to market your book commercially is to figure out your niche of readers first. There’s often an obvious answer for nonfiction books. For example, a book about succeeding in sales is likely to […]
