Speaking about my book – at bookstores and book clubs, synagogues and genealogy societies, universities, writing conferences, writing classes, and adult education centers – is one of my favorite activities as an author. Being in contact with audiences feeds me – as a writer, a thinker, and a person. And the talks are an important source of sales.
By showing slides as I speak, I’ve turned my talks into multimedia presentations. For me and many other authors of memoirs and other non-fiction books, adding images to the mix can be a key way to keep listeners’ attention and speak compellingly about our work.
With evocative images, giving your talk can feel like telling a story – even like reading a picture book aloud.…Continue
It's easy to get caught up with Facebook and Twitter and forget all about your LinkedIn account until you're out of a job. But LinkedIn is the world's largest professional network, with 300 million users, and the fifth largest social network in the United States, with 100 million American users. So pull out your virtual feather duster and start sweeping away those electronic cobwebs. It's time to update your LinkedIn profile, and here's how:
1. Make sure your profile is complete, including a professional headshot of yourself.
2. Let your voice and personality shine through in your summary. Don’t skip it. It’s important.…Continue
I recently received a tweet that left me scratching my head. A woman tweeted (to me, not to the world), a photo of herself holding a book. There was no accompanying note, no greeting or explanation, nothing. And she wasn't holding up one of my books, so it clearly wasn't a fan tweet.
I tweeted back asking if she'd forgotten to include a message with the photo. She replied that she was an author and thought I might want to read her book.
That's all she wrote.
Book marketing takes a lot of work, and I commend any author who makes the effort to get the word out, but it's…Continue
For those of you who follow publishing news, or who are KDP authors, you know that on August 9, Amazon sent a very bizarre email to all of its KDP customers, which has been dissected best, in my opinion, here and here.
You can read the full email here, but this post is really about why I canceled my Amazon Prime account the next day.
There is no question in my mind…Continue

Did you ever have a rotten day and then think to yourself “How can it get any worse?” Do you ever have the kind of day where everything just snowballs…right downhill? I think I know the answer…we all have.
But did you ever stop for a moment to reflect on this “day from hell” and review what was going on…
Happy to report that The Displaced Nation just posted an interview with me about my photography, my memoir, and travels. The Displaced Nation site is "a home for international creatives" with a passion for global living and travel. They publish interviews with writers, photographers and other creative types. FYI, the term TCK refers to "third culture kids" - those who have moved away from their "passport country" when young, then returned when…
