Where are your books available for purchase?
Amazon? That's great but are you lost among the hundreds of millions of books there? And, Amazon takes such a large chunk of your book sales. Fine, if you do not have a way of selling on your site, and fulfilling your own orders.
What about your own web site?
Do you have a great web site?
How many people know where you are?
Is your site SEO (search engine… Continue

Beginning with the knowledge of our oneness with a God that is everywhere in God's pure consciousness
, we open up and build on the concept that God is supreme and the source of all there is. This successful attitude shelters us from the flood of separate experiences in life that drag us down and drown us with a tightfisted attitude. Just like Noah followed directions in the midst of his troubles to build the ark, we can build a balanced state… Continue

The latest book is now complete. It is in the hands of the editor. I am hoping for a March 2010 release. "City of Gardens: The Invisible Society" is the second edition of "The City of Gardens Collection".
"The Invisible Society" has changed gears and focussed more on interviews of various people in the city including the most vulnerable instead of reciting statistics, figures and reports.
Work for the third book has already started. "City of Gardens: Victoria's Dirty Little… Continue

It's a beautiful day for ghostly play,
Looking at life through ghostly misty eyes of grey,
And looking for someone to see me,
Trying to be all that a ghost can be.
I've been changed to fit into this mold,
And I was not as most go, old.
My voice whispers in the wind,
As I reach out to be heard my Friend.
To tell you the secrets that I have heard,
I must tell you so you don't whisper in ghostly word.
Sometimes things are not always as… Continue

Before we begin this discussion, let us agree that selling books will take work. However don't fret, because the same work you do as an independent author is the same work a traditional publisher would have to accomplish. The beautiful thing about being an independent author is that you have the ability to place your passion and voice in your product.
Note: Your book will sell when you can intelligently express the features and benefits that it has to offer.
Knowing Your… Continue

"Take your grubby hands off of me, Tex!"
"How 'bout I show you a really good time, Paidra?"
"The only good time you could show me is watching
you walk out the door."
"I love it when you're angry, Paidra," Tex said, grabbing a
handful of her blond hair.
"You're hurting me," she yelled, grabbing onto the bar.
"For a saloon girl, you sure think you're something. I ain't
never been in a saloon with such an uppity… Continue

It’s been said that knowledge is power, but sometimes ignorance can be a writer’s best friend. For example, I didn’t realize until after selling a story to Proctor & Gamble that “everybody knows” it’s near impossible for freelancers to sell to daytime soaps.
It all started with the Romance Writers of America conference which my dear friend Lee Duran and I planned to attend. Since we were both fans of As The World Turns, we figured it would be fun to visit the set while we were in… Continue

Compared to Gene's coast-to-coast, two year-long tour
for 'I Never Played Catch With My Father'
, several years ago, this eight month odyssey is relatively short, and will include all his present day-to-day responsibilities.
Okay, so he's a glutton for punishment. And as if that were not enough, he will continue final editing for two more novels: 'Quietkill:12.20.2012, and… Continue

You can anticipate a troublesome Halloween when the hosts of the Halloween night party you've been invited to ask you to serve as doorbell greeter … and counsel you to bring a change of shoes. Maybe a couple of changes.
You can anticipate a troublesome Halloween when the trick-or-treaters you just gave the "just-one-piece-per-kid" to are glaring into their gaping bags and muttering "Thank … you. May we borrow some toilet paper and red spray paint?"

Just got some great publicity on my civil rights books. Feature story on my work has been posted to Google News and AP.
"Susan Klopfer believes the long, sad chapter of American history surrounding the civil rights struggles of African Americans should never be forgotten. Using her journalistic talents, she’s authored two books focused on unsolved atrocities in the Mississippi Delta region that have brought new light to several cases."…

I want to thank everybody who has chosen to follow my blog and to read some of the posts over the last few weeks. I do hope you are enjoying them.
To refresh the idea of what the OVERLAND blog is all about: to take one of life's many wistful abstract concepts each week, and weave them into one of the themes included in the novel OVERLAND. In previous weeks I have written about finding lost loves, a pleasant memory frozen in time, writing what we know, and a few other arbitrary yet… Continue
