Sell, Sell, Sell

Remember the movie Trading Places where the two old, greedy millionaires bet that if a snobbish investor and a streetwise con artist switched places, the investor would go bad and the con artist would steal from the company? I never forgot the scene when Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy teamed up and were ready to bankrupt Randolph and Mortimer Duke. Randolph is having a heart attack, while Mortimer is yelling on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, "Sell, sell, sell!" Well, that's how I feel about my book.

My hat is off again to Wheatmark Publishing, Tucson, Arizona. They know how hard I have worked trying to promote my murder mystery, Evil in the Mirror , while writing the sequel, Day Stalker, updating my Website, maintaining my blog five days a week, Twittering and Facebooking like The Mad Hatter, and last, but not least, coming up with new promotional ideas.

I received a heavy box from Wheatmark a few days ago and inside was a 700 page book called 1001 Ways To Market Your Books. I immediately started researching the author, John Kremer, and holy smoly, this guy knocked my socks off! He has forgotten more about writing, promoting, managing, Websites, blogs, Twitter and maybe even time travel, than I will ever know!

The book was a simple way of saying thanks for publishing my sequel with Wheatmark, and I appreciate the gesture very much. You see, they want me to succeed too. After all, it really is about selling books, and with the Internet the world is truly your oyster.

If you are thinking about writing and/or publishing a book, please give Wheatmark Publishing a try. They are the very best at traditional and POD publishing, and it's nice to have their team working with you. Here's to your success!

Write on,
