The Young Woman Who Lived in a Book

By | 2018-05-03T12:57:38+00:00 May 10, 2018|News, Publishing|Comments Off on The Young Woman Who Lived in a Book

I remember the first time I went to the library to check out a book. I was six years old and attending a decently small elementary school in California’s San Joaquin Valley. It was the first time our class was allowed into the library outside of our set “story time” with the librarian. It felt like I had been wandering around for hours, I was so consumed. I grabbed Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus off of a shelf and found a quiet corner to read in. My teacher was looking for me as I hid between the shelves to keep reading for as long as I could before having to go back to class.

I was, and to this day am, the reader of my household. Once I have a book in my hands, you won’t be able to pry […]

“April Come She Will . . . “

“… when streams are ripe and swelled with rain.”  With apologies to Paul Simon, here in the Sonoran Desert there are only dry streambeds this time of year.  It did rain briefly, however, on the Saturday, March 10, day one of the Tucson Festival of Books, but that didn’t seem to deter the over 100,000 book lovers there.  (The Festival’s now the third largest in the country. ) When I’m not working at Wheatmark, one of the things I do is volunteer for the Festival on the Book & Author Committee, where this year I was responsible for inviting authors who work in, or write about, the movie industry. Of all the authors I invited, the one who drew the biggest crowds was not a journeyman author with fifty titles, but first-time author Jenna Fischer.  You may remember Fischer for playing Pam […]

Become a Joiner

By | 2017-10-04T13:38:06+00:00 October 4, 2017|News, Publishing|Comments Off on Become a Joiner

Grael Norton, Wheatmark’s Director of Marketing, does a fantastic webinar called “Do This First” which answers the question “What’s the first thing I should do now that I have written my book?” I won’t be a spoiler. You’ll have to watch the webinar (register at www.bookpublisher.com) to get the answer.

I have some “do this first” advice of my own, which answers the question “What’s the first thing I should do to market my books?”

Should you focus first on traditional publicity, advertising, social media marketing, getting reviews, entering book contests . . .? Based on my experience working with hundreds of successful authors, the simple answer is: Networking. In particular, networking within the community of people who are passionate about your genre or subject. Whatever other marketing you do, you will need members of this community to get your work, and you as an author, discovered by a […]

It’s About the Reader

By | 2018-03-29T11:09:19+00:00 July 19, 2017|News, Publishing|Comments Off on It’s About the Reader

When a book that we publish sells well, I always want to understand why, partly so that I can pass that information on to you. One book that’s been selling well lately is Farmer Able: A fable about servant leadership transforming organizations and people from the inside out by Art Barter. The book is an extended parable that teaches the lessons of servant leadership, the form of leadership in which leaders exist to serve the people they lead. It tells the story of a farmer named Able and his transformation from a typical all-about-me power-reliant head of farm and family to a true servant leader. The story is told from the perspective of both the humans and the animals on Able’s farm.  Even the wind, plants, and Earth are characters in the story. The author very effectively uses anthropomorphism and onomatopoeia […]
