Joe, I am new to Authors,com and would like to get to know other Authors and what they are writing, if you would like to know more about me and my books you can visit my blog, I would love to hear back from you, lets stay in touch. Thanks Lisa
Joe, Thanks so much for Getting back with me, and will find this interesting and hard to believe but statistic shows That self-help books are one point ahead of cook book sells, YES!! believe it or not we actually passed them up, and I am thrilled because you know why? My manuscript was denied by a published and cut down, and the they said: Did you know that cook books sell? and Did you know that there are a 101 ways to bake a potato? I was very hurt and confused, because not only did they cut my work down, they thought that baking a patato was more important than parents trying to help their teenagers through tough times, I was just about to give up, and glad I kept going, not only because I new this book was crucial to many parents that could benefit from it, but now Its good to know that all my self-help books will over ride cook books. My book has now been published and has gone LIVE!! if you are interested in purchasing my book just let me know, or if you would rather purchase a cook book instead. Stay in touch Thanks joe
Joe, it was good to hear back from you, now that my book is live, it will be going on Barnes and Noble website, along with amazon.com, But my big plans are to advertise and market it on face book, my publisher says that Authors do real well with face book, I also will be going up on a website called: Mormontimes.com in Dec, this is a News website where people (and I) go to Learn about what is going on in the L.D.S Faith, and since all of my books gear to this faith, I would like to see what happens. I am also tryin to get Pre-orders from the people I work with (which is a High School) so that I can get my books through Production Quicker. and when you talked about your Editor cutting things out, my editor (which is my niece) whom is very good at what she does, she always asks me before she takes things out, she always trys her best to leave what I say in my book, because she knows that the words and experiences are coming from my heart. so its to bad you don't have her for your editor because she is real sensetive to your feelings and your work. My book will be featured on Face book soon, why don't you give that a try. Good Luck and stay in touch Lisa
