A Funny Thing Happened While Wiaiting to Hear from the Literary Agent

Waiting is hard, but there are some things an author can do while waiting to hear back from a publisher or literary agent.

In case you haven't noticed - ha! - waiting is hard. As I write this, I am waiting for several things to happen with varying degrees of immediacy.

My delivery is supposed to come between 1 and 6. Hard going deep into something and possibly having to yank myself out of an intense scene or carefully organized nonfiction chapter. I have both going right now.

I'm waiting for my friend to receive her present. That doesn't pull my focus often, and only briefly then.

And I'm waiting to hear back from the agent I recently pitched.  I can put it out of my mind a lot of the time  OK, some of the time. Whether her response will dish out the Hammer of Doom or the Gates of Glory, who wouldn't want to know sooner than later? One night I found myself wondering whether she had verified receipt of the digital files, so I went through the messages in the folder I made for her comms to check. Yep. She got them. Thought so, but...had to check.

Several friends who know I pitched my novel will ask, "Did you hear anything yet?" Continue reading "A Funny Thing Happened While Wiaiting to Hear from the Literary Agent"

Love Letter to My Future Leader Dog

This is a little about my journey as a blind person and then a love letter to my future Leader Dog, whom I will meet when I go to Michigan for 26 days, hopefully this summer #LeaderDogs #GuideDogs #blindness

As a "partially sighted" / "low vision" woman living in a world that values what is seen by the eye above all else, I can honestly say that embracing my identity as a blind person and learning the skills of blindness have freed me to experience life on my own terms.

Learning to use a long white cane empowered me to carry my head high without worrying about the ground, because my cane would tell me what my eyes could not.

The second revolution in my life as a blind person was making the decision to travel with a guide dog. This provided even more freedom, because I could miss that crack in  the sidewalk entirely and get to the back of a line with ease.

Both of my guide dogs, Thunder and Molly, not only helped me, but they also had their own sacred missions and touched countless lives. Both were Joy Dogs who, in vastly different ways, opened hearts.

When It was time for that horrible but necessary decision to say farewell to Molly, I thought I might not get another guide dog.

Then the reality of life without a trusted guide set in. While I still get around well with a cane, my life is so empty without a dog. While it's nice not having to walk a dog in the pouring rain or bitter cold, there's also no companion to help me deal with crowds and miss all those obstacles my cane finds that a dog helped me avoid.

So 18 dogless months later, I decided to apply for a guide dog from Leader Dogs for the Blind. It took 26 days to complete the application, which included a vide, 6 references, a doctor visit (which was a big deal because I don't do doctors), a vision evaluation (pointless as I'm no less blind than I was when I had an official letter from a previous eye doc), and a form so detailed I expected it to come with a cheek swab for DNA.

May 13th, I got word that I am accepted for a dog and will go to Michigan sometime, maybe July or August, to get my dog! It will be a whole new adventure for me as well as the dog.

Question

Whereas I chose and trained my first 2 dog from puppyhood onward, this time a trainer will select the perfect dog for me. I don't know what breed or gender.

I am thrilled to surrender to this new adventure, and I love my dog with all my heart, even though I have not met him or her yet. Here is my love letter to my future Leader Dog.

Book Review of Psychological Thriller In Her Shadow by August McLaughlin

Each week, read a #bookReview on WriteOnPUrpose.com by best selling author, speaker & Top #BookReviewer Ronda Del Boccio. This week it’s a #psychologicalthriller called In Her Shadow by award-winning author and activist August McLaughlin #WomensRightToWrite

Book Review: In Her Shadow, a Psychological Thriller by August McLaughlin

Welcome back to another Write On Purpose book review. Each week, I review a well-written book, highlighting what makes it good from the reader’s perspective and what writing skills and techniques make it an irresistible read. Thus, each review serves both writers and readers.

This week, it's a chilling and suspenseful tale of secrets, pain and torment. In Her Shadow  is August McLaughlin's debut novel.

In Her Shadow by August McLaughlin

5 Star Review GraphicRead my 5-star review.

 

Here is the book description from Amazopn:

One woman locked in a basement, nearing death and longing for escape. Another baffled by the inexplicable symptoms wreaking havoc on her life. Both are lost and alone, yet somehow connected. And time is running out...

Near the tenth anniversary of her parents' unexpected death, Claire Fiksen, a lovely young Harvard-grad and gifted psychologist in Minnesota, develops bizarre symptoms of an eating disorder that threaten her fledgling career, her relationship with a handsome young medical student, her grasp on reality and, soon, her life.
When her beloved grandfather reveals that there may be more to her parents' death than she's realized, Claire's pursuit of healing becomes a desperate search for answers as she delves into her family's sordid past. Meanwhile, someone is watching her every move, plotting to draw her into her own twisted web of misery.
Claire has something he needs, and he'll stop at nothing to obtain it. Every step Claire takes brings her closer to the truth and danger. And her life, she discovers, isn't the only one at stake.

This book began its journey as a memoir but became a thriller, one of Ms. McLaughlin's favorite genres. Now, time for my review: Continue reading "Book Review of Psychological Thriller In Her Shadow by August McLaughlin"

Will Author Events Help Your Author Platform or Waste Your Time?

Are author events worth all the time, preparation, and energy?

One of my author friends has been running all over the place peddling her book at flea markets. SHe's frustrated about the amount of time, gasoline and energy that are turning into precious few sales.

Plus, this isn't helping her build her audience. For most people, flea markets are NOT where your audience hangs out, right?

Author Profit Tip: Bo where your people are. speak, share, connect...while you're still writing your book! Get your free profit guide http://writeonpurpose.com/free

I found this terrific article that should help you decide.. A huge thank-you to Deb  Vanasse

Here is the original article source

An onstage event: (left to right) Beth Hill, Seth Kantner, Peggy Shumaker, Joan Kane, and me.

I don’t mind telling you: I’m a tad exhausted, coming off two weeks of author appearances centered around my latest novel Cold Spell. For us author types, that much meet-and-greet can be grueling.

A friend of mine who has worked as a publicist asked if my publisher had arranged the events. Nope. I did that myself, though I had a lot of help from gallery owners and booksellers and college folks and a local writers organization. There was the launch, of course, and there were signings. But there was also a ticketed dinner event (sold out!), plus two “onstage” conversations and a workshop. At each appearance, I enjoyed the company of other authors, which made every event more enjoyable and better attended than it would have been had I gone solo.

A few tips for planning author appearances:

  • Venues: Although a few of my recent events were out of town, they were all within driving distance, which was a big relief to me. I enjoy travel, and if there’s a chance to connect it with books, so much the better. But as most authors will tell you, the traditional book tour is not nearly as glamorous as you might think, and it’s not especially good at getting books sold, either. For the most part, I chose local venues based on relationships I’d already built with the owners and managers.
  • Costs: The traditional book tour has two main objectives: to build relationships between authors and readers (including key readers, like booksellers) and to keep an author’s name out in front of audiences during the launch period. Is it cost-effective? Not really. From a publisher’s point of view, it’s more of a long-tail investment, getting their most popular authors out to meet and make fans. Regardless of how they’re published, some authors front the costs for their own book tours, but I haven’t run across any who’ve found it, dollar for dollar, to be a good investment. If there are places you’d love to visit or places you’re visiting anyway and you’re able to arrange author appearances there, great—you’ll enjoy the journey, and your expenses may even be tax-deductible, if your writing efforts qualify as a legitimate business with the IRS.
  • Occasion: Author appearances don’t have to be launch-related. It’s always a good idea to get out and meet readers at book signings, readings, and other events if you’re good at that sort of thing and you actively promote those events through your friends-and-fans network. My recent events were launch-related, but they also tied in with an annual event, Alaska Book Week, which I helped start a few years ago.
  • Audience: Don’t just expect people to show up. They’re busy, and even though you’re an author, that doesn’t make you famous. Line up your events well in advance (six months, at least, if they’re out of town), and think beyond the traditional reading/signing. Look for groups that might have an interest in your book or in your journey as an author. Or maybe there are workshops you could teach. If your appearances are value-added for the audience, with book sales taking second billing, you’re more likely to find interest.
  • Partners: Another way to expand your audience is to participate in well-conceived events featuring multiple authors. It’s more fun, too.
  • Preparation: If you’re reading, practice and—extremely important—time yourself. Any reading that lasts more than ten minutes, including the introduction, is probably too much. If you have more time to fill, engage your audience with slides, anecdotes, and the like. Your knees might be shaking, your onstage persona should exude charisma and confidence. Relax and have fun, and your audience will follow suit.
  • Numbers: You may not sell lots of books. But simply spreading the word about your appearances increases your visibility and draws attention to your book.
  • Blog tours: Because of the costs involved, many publishers now favor blog tours in which the publicist arranges guest blogs, interviews, and book reviews at well-read blogs and then turns the author loose to fulfill the assignments. No hotels, taxis, or airfare are required—only the author’s time. Lots of it. One friend of mine had to cover 100 blog stops for the launch of her book. Are blog tours effective? In theory, anything that gets you and your book in front of readers is helpful, and anything online has the advantage of creating a permanent presence for you and your book in the ever-expanding internet archives. If your publisher arranges one, you’re obviously going to participate, time suck or no; to refuse would be bad form. If you’re publishing on your own, consider whether the potential benefits are worth the time you invest. You can use the online service Alexa to make sure the blogs you’re touring are at least as well-trafficked as your own blog (assuming you have a blog). And as with most everything in publishing, be prepared for a lot of rejection (mostly in the form of silence) when you email bloggers asking for them to host a stop on your blog tour. I generally approach only those with whom I’ve developed some sort of personal connection, through social media or my fan base.
  • Party on: A new darling of the traditional publishing industry is the book launch party. But unless you’re a big, big name with a blockbuster title, they’re not offering to throw the party on your behalf; they want you to host a party and invite all your friends and sell a few books. All well and good—especially for the publisher, since they’ve invested nothing other than the suggestion—as long as you have the resources and enjoy that sort of thing. I like a party as well as the next person, but I agree with an author friend who points out, hey, we’re the writers—shouldn’t they be buying us drinks? If you want to celebrate your launch without breaking the bank, look for a no-host venue where your guests can buy their own food and drinks, preferably one that will allow you to sell and autograph books without charging you a percentage. Some authors even throw launch parties online, though to me that seems a stretch of what you can do with a keyboard. Maybe once someone invents virtual cocktails, the online launch party will catch on.

Your Author Platform

Book marketing benefits to speaking are just so-so. You probably won't sell a load of books at these events. But don't despair!

The biggest benefit to speaking at and attending events is not so much selling books. It's building relationships, connecting with your ideal reader, and building your author platform.

How will you apply this to your author journey?

Could Crowd Sourcing Help You Get Your Book into the Hands of Those Who Crave It…

Could Crowd Sourcing Help You Get Your Book into the Hands of Those Who Crave It?

One of the most important tasks of any author is making sure your book fills a need and is wanted. It's important to know your ideal customer like she's your best friend so you know exactly what she wants and get it into her hands.

Crowd sourcing means you get pledges in advance for your book, and you offer premiums in exchange for those pledges, rather like +NPR or public television. It's an interesting idea, and a new platform specific to authors is rising.

Thanks to +Carole Jelen  for letting me know about Unbound, a new crows sourcing platform for authors. Here's what one of the founders says about it: (quote taken from the article quoted below):

"David Cummings, venture partner at DFJ Esprit, comments, 'What stands out about Unbound is that fans support the publication of books they want to own.' - See more at: http://www.growthbusiness.co.uk/news-and-market-deals/mergers-and-acquisitions/2417202/unbound-raises-12-million-to-fund-growth-of-writersbased-crowdfunding-platform.thtml#sthash.DvPJPRal.dpuf

Today’s teaching comes from the first S for Sharing in the Bliss Butterfly System.

Sharing your message is at the heart of author platform and book marketing! Think of book marketing or promotion as sharing something really cool with your ideal customer and you'll find it MUCH more fun and easy!

BLISS Butterfly - Follow your bliss - Follow Your B.L.I.S.S. - Celebrity Author Mentor - Book Marketing Coach - Ronda Del Boccio

S for SERVE Your Audience from the B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly Author Success System

This episode is all about how you can think BIGGER regarding search. You'll discover how to use a powerful social influence platform to help more people find you.

There's a big difference between using a closed system like Twitter or Facebook VS using Google's social influence platform.

Surprising fact about Google search result: When you're logged into Google (which most everyone on a tablet or phone for SURE is), anything your friends or friends' friends have +1d or liked is higher in search.

Social DRIVES search!

Cool Tool of the Week

This week's cool tool is another great freebie from Google. Google Hangouts on Air lets you make a video recording of your screen, a webinar, a class, an interview or whatever into a permanent video on YouTube.

You can make the videos public or private, and think of all the uses for this ability:

  • Classes
  • Free or paid webinar trainings
  • Interviews
  • Masterminds
  • Tutorials showing your screen
  • and so many more.

These videos are higher ranked than a regular YouTube upload. Think about it…YouTube is a Google property! That brings more searchers to your door, and because of the hangout, they can hear and see you. This also works for screen capture!

How Can Authors Use Google+ Hangouts for Book marketing?

How can you as an author use Google+ Hangouts to grow your influence? Find out with these examples AND jump on a call Thursday night! Read on for details.

How Can Authors Use Google+ Hangouts for Book Marketing?

I'm just beginning to use Google+ Hangouts to promote my own books and to work with authors.

Cover of the #1 Best Seller The Peace Seed

maybe you're like me, and you're a little shaky on the whole hangouts thing. For me, part of the issue is that I'm mostly blind, and while Google does some great things for accessibility, Hangouts and HangoutsOnAir could use some work.

(BTW If you know anyone inside Google, have them reach out to me and I will GLADLY help make it more accessible for the blind!)

Well, I've never met a technology I couldn't manage eventually, with a little persistence, patience and poise; it's just a matter of “making friends with G+ Hangouts.”

Along those lines, I decided to host my first live HangoutOnAir Saturday, September 21st  for #PeaceDay The International Day of Peace. Click to join the live reading from The Peace Seed.

Here are some more examples to spark your imagination:

Toni Morrison Does First-Ever Google Plus Hangout Book Signing

Feb. 25, 2013

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison will participate in a first-of-its-kind digital book signing and a Google+ Hangout on Air at the Google New York offices.

Using a Wacom tablet, Morrison will sign digital versions of her newest national bestseller, Home, published by the Knopf Doubleday Group, and will be signing the Vintage Books paperback edition of Home for Google employees.

The live Hangout celebrates the paperback release of Home, as well as the culmination of Black History Month events sponsored by the Black Googler Network. The event starts at 3 p.m. EST on February 27, 2013.

During the Hangout Morrison will chat with book clubs around the country. This is the first nation-wide event that Morrison has done with book clubs. The Hangout will be livestreamed on Google+ and YouTube and promoted on Google Play. Fans can watch the Hangout in real time and submit questions electronically.

Here's another example of Google+ Hangouts for building relationships with readers:

Kevin Kelly used Google Hangouts to promote his book:

Samantha Shannon's new dystopian book The Bone Season has taken the world by storm, and her book is a Today Show book of the month. Notice how they get people to post questions on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, with which more people are familiar:

Join author +Samantha Shannon and +TODAY's +Natalie Morales on Monday, September 16 for a Google+ Hangout to discuss Shannon’s debut novel “The Bone Season” -- the first TODAY Book Club pick. Shannon who, at only 21 years of age, is already taking the literature world by storm with “The Bone Season,” will be chatting with viewers about her gripping dystopian novel.

Got a question about “The Bone Season” for Samantha Shannon? Send your questions to Facebook, Twitter and Google+ using the hashtag #TODAYBookClub .

How might YOU as an author incorporate Google Hangouts into your author platform? Here are a few ideas:

  • Reading a chapter from your book.
  • Updating fans throughout the writing process and asking questions.
  • Conducting a virtual book tour like Kevin did.
  • Hosting book clubs (a twist on what both Samantha and Kevin did).
  • Having people act out a scene from your book as a hangout.

Full truth here…I could use some help using Google+ Hangouts to their fullest potential. And just as I was thinking about this a few days ago, I got a call from Mark HarrisHe and Alex Mandossian.asked me to be 1 of 10 leaders on a mega hangout!

This is exciting, because they will help me make better use of Hangouts, and of course you're part of my TRIBE, so you'll find out as well!

The possibilities are endless – and you can find out more Thursday night on a Mega Hangout.

Join the Mega Hangout WriteOnPurpose.com/mega. –  and watch for a very special offer at the end. I already jumped in, and I highly recommend YOU do the same! We'll take the journey together!

Follow your BLISS!

The Book Launch is DEAD! Invitation to Be an Instant Best Selling Author

The old way of launching a book involved months and months of work. Now there is a better way. Learn why the old way is broken and what you can do to become an INSTANT best selling author even with no list and no big name.

Do you DREAM of being a best-selling author?

ME - a best selling author!

Holding the book YOU WROTE in your hands! -

Seeing your name on the cover of your book! -
Enjoying AMAZING experiences that excite you!-
Touching lives - maybe even changing the world!

One author I know did her book launch the old fashioned way. I'll call her Sarah.

Sarah decided to get a whole bunch of partners to provide a bonus and send out emails to their customers and subscribers on launch day.

"I spent 20-40 hours a week for almost 8 months," she said.

Sarah had small children. I cannot help but think of all the playtime and special moments she missed because of spending so much time on her launch.

And what were her results?

She did make bestseller on Amazon - HOWEVER...

Most of her bonuses had absolutely nothing to do with her book, so they did not get many optins.

Only about 25% of her partners actually mailed, and most of those only one time.

And while yes she leveraged her bestselling author status in other great ways, the amount of time and energy the launch took left her feeling drained.

"I can't help but wonder if I could have gotten the same result with less work."

Now, you can get to bestseller status and leverage it much faster!

What you'll discover doesn't take any special mojo, training or celebrity status! I discovered a secret formula that made me a best selling author almost by accident

The Peace Seed, #1 Bestselling Book

You could be like 1 of these "ordinary" people

 

The Peace Seed, #1 Bestselling Book

Cynthia - no book to #1 bestselling author in 10 days - strong sales for 2 years

Imagine You Thin by Cynthia Fertal #1 in 2 Categories

#1 bestseller 18 hours after published - then industry leader in prestigious publication .

Another Awakened Author Success Story: Chris Downs, bestselling author & contributor to Grit Magazine - wanna be next?

Would YOU like results like that?

#017 Help! When Do I Start Book Marketing? Awakened Author Adventure Episode 17

Get book marketing help that will set you FREE and tear down resistance for you! This is a BIG episode for anyone who doesn’t want to or doesn’t like to promote your book.

#017 Help! When Do I Start Book Marketing? Awakened Author Adventure Episode 17

Welcome to Episode 17 of the Awakened Author adventure –  where visionaries like you come for resources, tools and direction to write, publish and share your life-changing book!

Each week you get help in 1 of the 5 keys to author success in the BLISS Butterfly System, including how to write a book, book marketing and more.

Book marketing help about when to start marketing is today's teaching from the first S of BLISS!

Being a successful visionary author is about more than just writing a book. Today’s episode features the first S for SHARING your message in the BLISS Butterfly Author Success System.

BLISS Butterfly - Follow your bliss - Follow Your B.L.I.S.S. - Celebrity Author Mentor - Book Marketing Coach - Ronda Del BoccioSHARE your message - B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly Author Success System

 The question that inspired this episode is one that came to me twice yesterday alone.

There's a lot of confusion about when to start with book marketing.  Do you wait til the book is out?

  • “I'm almost done with my book. When do I start marketing?”
  • One way this comes up is, “My book is out, now what?”
  • “Do I have to start marketing now?”

If you're already well underway with your book, or if it's already out, then you're already tardy to the party!

This episode will show you that book marketing does not have to:

  • Be a drudge
  • Be hard
  • Overwhelm you
  • Make you break out into a cold sweat
  • Make you whine
  • Make you complain
  • Be a “HAVE to”

…or any other thing you don't want!

Book marketing should be a fun, free extension of who you are!
