yeah, I need the answer to that question. How do I download my book files onto this page or site if I want to?

Here is a press release I did myself--is it professional enough to use? Any comments are welcome!

First-time author Philip Nork brings Sensitivity 101 for the Heterosexual Male to life!

Author: Philip Nork
Publisher: AuthorHouse

Baker & Taylor
Release date: August 2009
ISBN Paperback: 9781438967448
ISBN Hardcover: 9781438967455

Authors Website:

“The age-old “Battle of the Sexes” is still going just as strong as it ever was-and chances are it won’t lose any steam anytime soon. So rather than lament the fact that the game exists, men and women around the world are instead better off learning to play it to the best of their ability. Such is the premise behind Sensitivity 101 for the Heterosexual Male.” Tara Hopkins, Apex Reviews

“This is one of those books where the title does not adequately portray they content. Sensitivity 101 for the Heterosexual Male is not just for males, or even for just heterosexual individuals. This book can be enjoyed by anyone… If I had a son, I would want him to read this book.” G.A. Bixler, Book Readers Heaven

The journey we are on is a difficult one, even more so for those of a broken family. Follow the adventures of one such boy as he searches for the two desires we all share: the ability to be accepted by others and the right to be totally happy. Along the way he learns many life lessons that eventually lead him to discover both of these things.

“Straightforward and refreshingly candid…an impressive presentation of a life with a plethora of helpful lessons to share. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to cut through the typical façade of relationship ‘politics’ and learn the roots of true, lasting happiness.” Apex Reviews

“The stories that have emerged are ripe with feeling and diversity.” Authors Promoting Authors

Michael, see the icons above the text box? There's one to the right of the camera, a white rectangle. Click that to upload a file in a comment.

If you're wanting to put them on the forum, there's a link below the text box you type in there when you create a new thread that says "upload files."

We're promoting our books many ways, though primarily through Internet-based networks. Twitter is working pretty well for us, but it's by no means our only promotional outlet. The key seems to be diversification, such as through our various social networks.

By the way, you can get the free ebook on writing here.

We're also preparing a Kindle version of our largest book, 100 Days to Better Writing. I'm eager to see what kinds of sales figures we receive from that. This will be our first attempt at Kindle sales through Amazon. Our e-books have been fairly successful from our websites, but this is a new area for us. This type of sales meets our diversification philosophy. Now let's see if we're right!

I've been promoting my book in the more traditional ways, such as bookstores etc, but i'm about to release a second one in March and i'm very intrested in other avenues. Any advice you would care to share with me would be greatly appreciated.

Having a presence on Twitter and on Facebook has generated a few sales for me. Every once in a while someone will tell me that they've ordered my book.

I found out this week that I can bypass the agents and publishing companies, and go straight to the distribution companies that sell to the book stores. Has anybody heard of this.
Comment by Anna L. Walls on February 22, 2010 at 2:22am
I figured it was always worth a try. My son spoke to Barns and Noble. I need to fill out some paperwork there. Can't since I'm not face to face. My other son is going to talk to Safeway. Probably the same thing. In my book, it never hurts to ask. And if I were you, I'd be ready right there to sell them upwards of a dozen. They might not buy more than say 4 or 5 but be ready just in case. Good luck. I, for one, am very interested in what you find out.

I have discovered a way to publish my own books. I can buy the ISBN numbers and every thing. Maybe I will - maybe I won't. I haven't decided.
