How can you incorporate your book cover into clever images that people will want to share on their social networks?

Social media sharing is love in action!

Caution: use of absolute terminology such as best, first, most, most outstanding, and greatest are difficult to prove and generally are fallacious.

Put yourself in the shoes of a others. If you speak professionally, is a bureau going to take a risk by submitting your material, strewn with superlatives, to a meeting planner who has perhaps seen and heard it all? Even with meeting planners who are relatively new in the position, the flags go up the moment they receive literature adorned with grandiose claims.

Check out these 14 bizarre, and sometimes horrifying, ingredients that might be hiding in the food you eat every day!

Here are a few of the bizarre ingredients: shellac, laccifer lacca bug, carmine, female cochineal insect shells, isinglass, swim bladders of fish, wood pulp, cellulose, diacetyl, arsenic, diatomaceous earth, rodent hairs, bull bile, taurine, gelatin, silicon dioxide, sand, anti-caking agents, antifreeze, propylene glycol, castoreum, beaver castor sacs, human hair, l-cysteine, and the remains of cow’s hooves.

Remember: You are what you eat!

I saw this lead question in a recent email I received: What is a good self-publishing company?

The answer is simple: YOU.

Yup, the only good self-publishing company is yourSELF. That’s what self-publishing is all about.

Whether or not you extract articles from your books, you undoubtedly have information that will be of interest to your clients and prospects. With thousands of magazines, newspapers, journals, and newsletters in print, more than one million by-line articles appear in the U.S. alone each year. A significant number of those are by first-time authors.

Seth Godin on Book Covers . . . If the book has maximum impact, then word of mouth is created, and word of mouth is what sells your product, not the cover. Tactically, the cover sells the back cover, the back cover sells the flap and by then you’ve sold the book. If those steps end up selling a book that the purchaser doesn’t like, game over. So you have to be consistent all the way through and end up creating a conversation after the purchase.
