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 — […]

Tucson, AZ – July 3, 2017 — Wheatmark, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Restoring Character in America  by Michael J. Kerrigan. This is the author’s third book about current events in America.

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.

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.

Books for Writers and Readers

The Yankee Road

Some of the books I’m reading, or have read lately, I can recommend, and highly, to writers and those aspiring to be published authors:

Hit Makers: The Science of Popularity in an Age of Distraction by Derek Thompson (Penguin Press, February 7, 2017). Fame sells books: Famous books sell, famous people’s books sell, and books about famous people and things sell. Without one of these three types of fame, making books sales can be a challenge. “Discovery” is the term of art publishing aficionados use to label the process of moving from obscurity to fame. But, how does an author get “discovered?”

In this fascinating book Derek Thompson explains, and tells stories of how it used to work when gatekeepers, like the major publishing houses, had the power to decide who became famous. He also explores in depth how discovery has […]

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 […]
