The floor is open – book publishing/publicity questions?

August 25, 2008 at 10:16 am

Good morning and good week to you!

Given that I was admiring the dazzling Olympic closing ceremony last night, I have no actual Monday morning post. Tsk tsk.

I think it’s a good time to ask me about issues that concern you regarding getting published, increasing visibility, what to do next, …the floor is open.


I am conducting an email campaign, around the world, encouraging people to all buy Richard Bandler (Mr. NLP)’s brand new book, Get the Life You Want: The Secrets to Quick and Lasting LIfe Change with Neuro-Linguistic Programming on September 2, 3, & 4.  Feel free to join in. Help me make a bestseller (please)!

Congratulations to HCI author Matthew Miller for he and his wife’s (finally) successful pregnancy! His book, Maybe Baby: An Infertile Love Story will give you a good idea, with some chuckles, of what transpired to this point.

Hooray Matthew & Constance!

Hooray Matthew & Constance!

Let me hear from you. There’s so much to do, so much to learn. Especially with this ever increasing need to put down stakes and show up in this territory I like to call the world”wild”web.

Have a great week.

The charmed life of an HCI author – another pr dream scenario

August 22, 2008 at 7:18 am

This is going to be short and sweet but as Jackie Gleason used to say, “How sweet it is!”

Jess McCann, author of You Lost Him at Hello, should play the lottery. I’m sure she would win. Since working with her for the past few months, this thirty-something saleswoman turned dating guru has had unbelievable luck.

Remember, all that’s been said on this blog before about publicity  — one of the key elements of publicity that can make your book is timing.

Jess has it.

At BookExpo America (BEA) this past June, Jess reported that on her plane ride north from D.C. to Los Angeles, who did she sit with? The book reviewer of USA Today! Now, I’ve worked with USA Today for my entire career and have NEVER met this woman. (We’re still waiting to hear from you!!!) There would be little chance that Jess would have ever had the opportunity to speak at length to this woman.

Go figure.

That’s a good enough story for me but it doesn’t end there. Get this one. Upon returning from New York to hometown D.C. by train, Jess once again finds herself in the company of two tv producers. One from Fox & Friends and the other from ABC Primetime. She could have made acquaintance with media folks of no consequence to her and her book, but both times she met folks who could either host Jess on their shows or review her book. And, each one could make a difference in her book sales.

Amazing, huh?

So, the moral of this story is, as in the case of Jess McCann, never travel or move around your world without looking up. Take a peek around and be friendly to those around you. You never know who you might be sitting next to.

And, Jess, keep traveling. It seems that’s where your good fortune occurs.

I’m expecting the next story to be a maritime event. Perhaps a cruise or a river rafting event. In the seat next to Oprah.

(see yesterday’s media clips of Jess McCann from The Washington Post and The Mike & Juliet Show )
