Alright, you might have to weed out some marketing info or join an email list but you can always unsubscribe and keep the info. AND you can't beat the price!
"Awards also create interest in your book, which can lead to more sales and other opportunities. A book award may cause someone to stop in their tracks and consider picking up your book in a book store. A book award can give you an edge and sometimes that’s all the difference you need to propel your book into bestseller territory. If you win you can say you are an “award winning author.” Doesn’t that sound better? Of course it does, and you get a little magic that comes from a third party endorsement because an authority says your work is worthy, and that’s priceless."
~ Scott Lorenz, President of Westwind Communications

I started my book blog while recuperating from orthopedic surgery. Reading 3-5 novels a week was a dream come true for someone who’d always wanted time to read as much as she wanted but after a while I thought I should be sharing this treasure. As a blogger I came to develop rich and rewarding relationships with authors, publishers, readers, bloggers and even book marketers.
These literary relationships brought questions about book marketing and other aspects central to the book world. My book blog didn’t seem to be a fitting place to answer the questions so I created a sister blog for book marketing.
One of my passions has always been research and my new association with the book world gave me many opportunities to satisfy that passion. Every time I was asked a question I became more and more involved with literary enthusiasts. I was enjoying myself. I left real estate and law offices behind and put my business, legal and marketing knowledge to work becoming a book marketer and author service provider.
I now maintain my beloved book blog simply because of my love of reading. The publishing world is full of changes and I’m kept busy staying current and researching so that I can give my clients the best service possible.
I read (avidly), provide book marketing coaching and consulting, write, create book trailers and video flash ads and never intend to return to a law or real estate office. I also write my blogs and have posted as a guest on blogs for experts like D’vorah Lansky, John Kremer and Shelly Hitz. My most recent interview invitation was from Lori Randall with Literally Social.
I think I have found my niche!
