Book Marketing: What Traditional Publishers Expect from Authors Beyond Writing the Book

Getting a book contract is exciting beyond belief. I finally got a hard copy of the book. I said to my sister  one morning as I stuffed a copy into envelopes to mail off to those who contributed:

Good Evening

You matter in this world. You are just as important as the next person.

Are they better…

Welcome Daniele Lanzarotta, Author of Shattered Souls

I will never understand those vampires who feed off animals or bags of donated blood. Let’s face it… if you are a vampire like those Cullens, who drink from animals, you are bound to get hair in your mouth while eating. Who can enjoy a meal like that? And those bags…

Hi! My name is...

Marie! And it's so nice to meet you! I know we're both writers, but let me introduce myself.

I don't have a long history as a writer, in fact, it's probably been just over a year now, that I began blogging seriously. I began with a lovely, little site called, "The Business of…

Total Hip Replacement Surgery and Recovery

This surgical treatment requires the surgeon to remove the damaged hip joint components (femoral head and acetabulum) with artificial implant devices made from ceramic, plastic, metal or a combination of these. These artificial prosthetics in the hip joint not only help to relieve the pain but also to restore normal functioning in the hip joint.

It is most important to observe and follow all instruction given by the doctor/physician regarding the recovery and after-care for a…

What I've Been Up To

Apologies, fellow writers, for being away for so long! :) I'm starting my second graduate program in a few weeks, finishing up the details of the first one, and looking forward to the challenge and the fun of the health sciences. UCSF is my dream school - if we can have several dream schools :) - and so I am back to some intense studying and serious research work nowadays! :)

Of course, I'm still reading and writing a lot ... It is just that I will be reading about economics, politics…

Good Evening

Let it go…anger. Don’t make friends with it.

Anger will never help you. It can and will make you sick. It can and will cause you to alienate friends and loved ones. It will cause you misery.

Make a conscious decision right now to part ways with anger as much as you can. When you see a guy with a…

Tension Requires Release

Tension in fiction keeps us reading because we crave resolution. Too much, too soon, and readers may not bother to finish. Too little, too late, and readers may get annoyed. The art of storytelling is all about building tension while allowing just the right amount of release, until a climax in…
