The Law of Attraction

“I am a successful author and millions are buying my books!” This is what I repeated over and over this morning as I took my daily walk. Did it do any good? Only time will tell. To be perfectly honest I’m not sure I totally understand the law of attraction. I know it’s not enough to just say it and…

Learning on the Job: Book Promotion

With our book Hungering and Thirsting for Justice due for release next month, my co-editor and I recently received some distressing news. The booksellers that usually carry presenters' books at the national November Call to Action conference will not be setting up a table in the exhibition hall this year. That means that our book won't be available for sale throughout the duration of the conference, but only during times that we're…

If It’s About Titanic, It’s Here

This is 2012, and in April, it will be one hundred years since the RMS Titanic set off on her maiden voyage to New York. We all know how it ended.

People like to celebrate centennial events, but in this case, the word celebrate is sadly inappropriate. This event is commemorated, rather than celebrated.

It seems that everywhere I look, there’s an article about another centennial Titanic event. I knew this would happen. People are fascinated with the ship, and the people who…

Launching A Book Without Looking Friends, Family, or Your Mind

Unmitigated panic. Unrelenting fear. Ulcer-inducing worry.



A year ago my book was launching and I should have been on cloud nine. I was realizing a life-long dream at a time when many my age popped Lipitor. I was edging close to a sedative habit.



Looking back to my novel debut last January, terror defined my anticipatory state-of-being. How would I bear bad reviews? (Weeping. Definitely weeping.) What if I got no reviews? (More weeping) What if no one came to my book… Continue

Ready, Set...Launch! Using hard-copy promotion to your advantage

Ready, Set...Launch! Using the Internet to promote your work

Books don’t launch themselves–they need a big push. Most writers don’t have the luxury of having a big publishing house behind them to handle promotion. Except for really big names, most writers need to do most of their publicity. As soon as you’ve signed a contract with a publisher, it’s time to turn your attention toward promotion. Don’t wait until your book is published before creating your promotion–you’ll want to hit the ground running once you… Continue
