Writing & Free E-book Offer

-- Quote of the Day -- 

“You are always going to have people who are going to try to take you down. A lot of people are resentful that you’ve produced a book; you have to understand who they are and just go around them. …If I have a set amount of things I have listed on my calendar that doesn’t mean that is what I’m going to get done, any one telephone call can change things. One moment I could be doing cover design and book design, there is always something new to learn – I spend a lot of time touching up people’s work; I deal with a lot of printers, and my given day can be doing anything from invoicing to design. …I feel authors need to find places to speak in public, places to be seen online and merchandising. …A golden rule for authors is not to hound people, get online and do your homework; if you don’t follow directions then you appear as not being professional and not being easy to work with. …As a member of the media I find that authors are not prepared for interviews; they don’t have a media kit, a list of questions, they don’t have a 25-word elevator pitch, they don’t have anything.”

~ Patti Hulstrand 

Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode that aired back on Jan 3… titled: World of Writing

-- Free E-book -- 

Darcia Helle ran a Criminal Justice series of articles and interviews on her blog and had invited me to partake in the project. Soon after the series ended, she decided to invite all the participants to have their story shared in a free e-book… The Criminal Justice Blog Series e-book is now available for free.
