Bittersweet Manor's First Birthday Present--an IPPY--and The Muse and The Marketplace

Just back from the happy, morning task of cleaning the chickens' poop deck, I am here to announce that Bittersweet Manor is one year old! In celebration, and most conveniently, on May 27th, my novel will be awarded a Silver medal, an IPPY Award for Contemporary Fiction, from Independent Book Publishers. I ask: What could be a better birthday present?

Now, a few people have…

[SWP: Behind the Book] My Cross-Country, Whistle Stop Book Tour with Flash Readings!

What possessed me to create a cross-country, Whistle Stop Book Tour with Flash Readings? 

To begin, who am I? For one, a She Writes Press author. My novel Bittersweet Manor came out in May 2014. I had the usual pre-publishing angst. (See my previous post “Did that really happen?”…

Welcome Rasha Selim, Author of Stolen Gifts

Food can play a sensual role in scenes.  Who hasn’t used food to win someone’s affections in some way?  The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, is a commonly-said phrase.…

River Valley Collection Excerpt and Give away

When Lee Tucker's husband commits suicide, he leaves her pregnant and one million dollars in debt to a loan shark.

Book Tour USA: Week One (+Giveaway)

It’s Day 4 of my book tour, and I’ve slept in a different bed every night so far. A leaky air mattress on a floor in Mountain View, a couch in Marin, and a comfy spare bedroom in San Francisco. Luckily my other hubs will involve only two or three cities near each airport instead of seven!

My first event was basically a warm-up, a talk over dinner with some Stanford students at a co-op house where 50 students live. Half the students left as soon as they finished their vegan burgers…

Interested in reviewing a memoir for a blog tour?

When I was a marketing executive mingling in direct selling circles (think: Tupperware and Mary Kay), I heard a speaker once tell a crowd of salespeople that the secret to her success was “open your mouth.”

She didn’t have magic fliers or special gifts for hosts or exactly the right words to say, she just put herself out there and talked to people about the products and opportunity she had to offer (thanks, Lisa K.).

That’s how it is with promoting one’s book, too, I…

When To Tour On Your Own Dime (And When To Stay Home With a Good Book)

We all know the oft-repeated bad news: the publishing world, which was always going to hell in a handbasket, is now rushing down the mountain on steroids. Translation: there's little opportunity or money to be had when it comes to getting big publishers to promote their writers, send them on tour, and pick up the tab. I remember a friend of mine, who has written nine bestsellers, telling me that in the good old days, she actually had a credit card from her publisher that she could use to…

Maya Stein's 'Tour de Word'

Sometime last year, while reading Patti Digh's 37days blog, I came across a poem by Maya Stein that I loved and clicked over to her blog to read more about her. I've been "following" her ever since. Stein is now planning an intensive eight-week, 30-state traveling poetry project she's calling "Tour de Word" -- a project financed entirely with donations through Kickstarter. Today, I'm featuring a video that describes the project and provides resources for accessing Stein's enjoyable… Continue
