My NEW Column: The Melting Pot on NOR

Recently Tammie King, Head Honcho and Review Wrangler Guru at Night Owl Reviews (NOR), asked me if I would be interested in covering the diversity desk for her FREE monthly Booklover e-Magazine. After I picked myself up off the floor, calmed down, and asked a few questions - I gave a resounding "Hells-to-the-YEAH!" 

I am an avid reader who isn't afraid to cross genres or cultures. For the record, I speak some French, have studied Russian, and minored in Asian Studies. It is fascinating to see the world through a variety of cultural lenses.

So, without further ado - I present to you my new column: The Melting Pot

Swing by each month to check out the eclectic mix of books plucked from my shelves.

Unlike other books on marketing, Therese Patrick and I have taken the time to break down terms normally used for corporations and reinterpreted them for our author friends. We loaded this book with tons of examples and exercises to help authors design their Personas and implement Push, Pull, and POP (Point-of-Purchase) marketing. We've also included two marketing plans for fictional authors to demystify the process of writing your own marketing plan for your books and / or Persona. Buy the book, write and draw in it, capture your thoughts and ideas, and learn how to have fun with your marketing.
