……
Hello and Welcome Readers and Friends,


….
Meet my amazing friend Deb Morgan! She is about to become a first-time author and what a way to share her first published book and one full chapter of overcoming and encouraging other women to do the same within “Simply Amazing Women” Book Two of the book series published by former co-host of the Howard Stern show and current owner and talk show host for WMAP Radio Host K.

“My name is Debra Morgan. I was born in Colorado and now live in Oregon. I am  55, married have 2 children, a daughter, and a son and 6 grandchildren. I am a Fibromyalgia survivor and I do not use that word lightly knowing that people I know and love now or have died from this insidious disease are reasons enough for me.

I was diagnosed with CFS in 1994 and Fibromyalgia along with IC in 2005. This diagnosis came because of the beginning of severe pain and other issues.  I am writing a book on my life with Fibro hoping that it will help reach people and help them to do what I do and live with fibro on their own terms. I now advocate and I support other people going through this by sharing what I learned and the skills and knowledge in surviving and even thriving despite living with Fibromyalgia.”

…..
Deb and I met through another mutual friend of ours and we love and began network together on “The Recovery Side of Things” and love to banter on social media with one another but we are serious about our ‘Recovery and we are Warriors’ as we have maintained recovery from addiction long-term. Who says you can’t have fun living life maintaining recovery? Deb and I “Live Life Fully” no matter what health challenges we face and what I love about her! Especially when we joke about getting older and getting more memory loss!! LOL.

I was so happy and proud when Deb told me she was chosen along with 12 other women from interviews K.C. had done with many women to write a chapter about what she has had to overcome, as each author shares and have written what they have had to endure and overcome in their lives. It is an inspirational, encouraging, and empowering read as these women share in each chapter.

Now, Deb and I both enjoy blogging and she has given us a preview of a new blog post she has up now on her blog called Deb-Spot.  I have shared some of her new blog-post at the bottom for those of you who may suffer or have Fibro or mental health challenges. I encourage you to visit her blog and read the whole post. Deb has a way of writing about her feelings and thoughts of her challenges so eloquently.

Here is more about the new book soon to release and can be pre-ordered now and sent when released through Barnes and Noble Pre-orders for Simply Amazing Women!

ABOUT THE BOOK: “Simply Amazing Women”

Life After Heartbreak: 13 inspiring examples to encourage and inspire you

Simply Amazing Women continues celebrity radio host K. C. Armstrong’s theme of human resiliency. Each of his13 interviews showcases a woman who courageously faced severe challenges and ultimately used the experience for the benefit of others. It’s not just about being a survivor; it’s about surviving to ease the path of people facing their own life challenges: addiction, discrimination, poverty, violence, and more.

Armstrong (formerly of the Howard Stern Show) uses his own background of self-destruction and poor choices to weave together excerpts of aired interviews taken from his WMAP Radio station. The diverse chapters and Armstrong’s commentary offer examples of hope, compassion, and forgiveness. Armstrong himself has turned his life around and has dedicated his remaining years to encouraging others to make whatever adjustments are necessary to obtain their own redemption, understanding, and inner peace. The upbeat message is one of belief in one’s own power to handle whatever life brings-with dignity and resolve.

Following his best-seller Simply Amazing, Special Author’s Edition (2019) Simply Amazing Women is published to celebrate and honor our mothers and grandmothers: women of strength, passion, and wisdom.

Bipolar Disorder Whispers Of The Depressed Mind


….
I started this blog post when COVID-19 was dropped into the world’s life and we Americans began to feel it in a painful way. The thoughts of what goes through my mind as someone who has Bipolar Disorder continues to change each and every day and more often during this time of stress and extreme sadness.

As it does on a daily basis by mind never stops talking or remembering songs or coming up with something else I need to do. I wish that I could get my mind to just shut up for a minute. When depressive circumstances are present the noise in my head begins to sound like a low whisper, never leaving, never slowing but as if a prayer of some sort it quiets as it changes and saddens.

…..

…..

In depression, no amount of cheerleading, self -help books, or inspirational sticky notes on the bathroom mirror can overcome the power of its grasp. I feel as though I am drowning, and no one is throwing me a life preserver, but I have no idea that there are none, and I better remember how to swim real quick.

 

“I will be stronger than my sadness.” ― Jasmine Warga

I hope and encourage you to visit her blog and read the “rest of her story”… You may connect with Author, Deb Morgan on social media too! FACEBOOK  – TWITTER.

What’s New For Affordable Book Promoting Options? Cat’s Sharing Some Marketing Tips For Authors Just in Time For Holiday Book Sale Season!

……
Hello and Welcome Authors and Writers!


Since it has been too long since I have posted and shared some of my book marketing and promoting tips, I thought it was a good time to do it and Right Before The Holidays! Is it me or does it seem book sales have been a wee bit sluggish? Then it is time for an e-book promotion perhaps? When summer begins to wind down, kids going back to school, and mom’s and dad’s are busy getting them ready, they are thinking about grabbing a new book to read.


So it’s the perfect time to give them an incentive to do so. Many will be taking the last summer vacation of the summer season for Labor Day weekend and why not take a great book along for some relaxing reading time readers? Even authors and writers are avid readers. So here are some tips and advice for getting a jump start on selling some books when it is a slower time of the year. And hopefully, the book reviews will follow.


…….

.


Author Branding and Promotions on All Author

Let’s start with promoting your books and branding all in one new place I came across called “All Author.”  It is a great place for authors to set up a free Author Program profile and can add up to 4 books and use a few of the boo marketing tools. Placement in their Book and Author Directory and more. When I place all my author clients on All Author? Since they have a huge readership all my authors get views and click’s to all their books like crazy!

They have a Pro Plan which is $59 for a 6-month plan (still pretty affordable for 6-months promo blast) that comes with all the tools, bells and whistles and authors can use them as much as they want for a whole 6-month duration! Like a free personalized website, “make your own” book banner/teasers, many nice themes for your profile, free Twitter scheduler and much more. You can see pricing for both plans, Free or Pro here: .“All Author Pricing.” 


All Author
is an exceptional place for all avid readers to find new releases and discounted books and e-book sales too!

…….

.

Author Shout Is A Great Book Ad and Banner Place!

Another amazing book promo site that is extremely affordable and has a large readership is my good friend Terry and his team at “Author Shout.”  They have an awesome “Author and Reader Member Zone” where authors for just $25 a month recurring can get all you need to effectively promote your book and brand as an author. If you pay a whole year in advance? He gives you an even bigger discount!

What I love about both Author Shout and All Author? They do an email list and newsletters out to all their readers, but Author Shout even sends text alerts for new releases for those readers who subscribe to both services! Pretty cool right?

Now just like All Author, Author Shout has many affordable services if you don’t want to do the Membership. They have affordable book ads, low-cost beautiful book banners, (like the one above), teasers, and even book trailers made the way you want them! What I like the most is that they promote through many social media channels like Twitter, FB, Google+ and even Instagram and Pinterest. And they connect readers to authors Worldwide.

Now, along with marketing advice and videos unlimited use, here are some of the Member Benefits for promoting your book:

As a monthly Author’s Club Member, you will also get the following:

How does this Cat jump-start your book’s sales and reviews when it is a slow time of year?

We do an E-Book Sale! I always suggest to the author clients I work for, there are two times a year you need to lower the price of your e-book and have a sale. This time of year when it slows and now just around the corner? It’s NOW CHRISTMAS Holiday E-Book Sale TIME!  Starting Thanksgiving week thru right before Christmas to include sales from Black Friday, Cyber-Monday, and last-minute e-book Christmas sales!

And it doesn’t have to cost a penny to promote your e-book sale either. But of course, there are some MANY low-cost options to boost the exposure for the SALE. Like my favorite at “READING DEALS!” And? When you have Cat promote your E-Book Sale? You’ll get a discount off your Book Ads!

And they have vetted reviewers who love free books for a READ FREE for an Amazon Book Review promotion! So ask me about it as my Discount Applies to this service too! Your e-book needs to be at a discounted price per their policy, need the Mobi file to place the ad and have 5 reviews averaging 4 or 5 stars.

……

….
Get Your Sale Organized:

First,

if you have a publisher, send a request for the dates of your e-book sale a month in advance so you know the PRICE will be lowered for your sale. If you self-published? You have the control to go through your vendor account and lower it a day or two before the sale to ensure it gets done properly.


Second,
 let readers know in advance about the e-book sale and promotion. Here are the places you’ll want to “Add An Event” and it’s free to do on:


….
Facebook Event Page and Boost The AD!

A Tip – You can get a bigger reach and exposure when you share the Post of your FB Event and then do a Facebook “Boost a Post.” Then all FB readers and users will see your event and Ebook Sale!

Goodreads – Add Ebook Sales As An Event and Make Sure and add It on your Blog or Author Website too! As others to share it as well!

……
imageedit_3_3689254652

.

Do you know any Book Bloggers? Ask them if they would share the event on their website too! I know I enjoy sharing book promotions on my blog for all my readers. Also, Book Reviewers may share as well. Don’t be afraid to ASK.

Want to boost your exposure for free or low cost?
You can do so at a few more of my friend’s book and reader websites free or for a minimal charge. And they offer a Free Author  Interview to go along with your Book Listing too! Go visit these awesome book sites below to see how they can help boost your Holiday Sale and Promo …
….
As my buddy, Vinny of Awesome Gang who works hard to get your books and your E-book sale promos in front of over 69,000 readers combined on their Facebook and Twitter! You can add all your books for free, but for an e-book sale, I think it’s worth the $10 to boost your listing don’t you? Invest in yourself!

Go here and add your E-book Sale at “Awesome Gang.” You won’t regret it!  A couple more places like Awesome Gang? Check out this list Vinny put together for Authors of free and low-cost places to add and market all your books and Book Sales!
“Places for free promotion.”


“My hope is that many of the tips and advice in my post here helps authors sell more books this holiday season!”

AND?  I’m sure you are asking yourself, why is CAT sharing all her book promo secrets? Lol … It’s because there is no shortage of New Authors that need my help and services. I am passionate about what I love to do as my “At Home Business!” And many writers hire me because they may be on a ‘new book deadline’ and just don’t have the time to market their books.

You can check out my New Website at “LYON MEDIA SERVICES”  Today! You can see some testimonials and see just how affordable we are!

And lastly? I have always been a firm believer that authors need to invest in themselves and set a budget to promote and market their books or readers are not going to know the books exist so KEEP a FEW LAYERED Low-Cost Book Ads Running Each Month and especially through the Holiday Season for your books! 

Now you are ready and can market them and do an E-book Sale & promotion like a Pro!  Still, Have Questions or Need Help?

Title: The Perils of Autumn
Author: Rusty Blackwood
Genre: Romance Suspense/Drama
Release Date: January 17, 2019

..

……

 

From the author of the riveting romantic fiction drama, Passions in Paris: Revelations of a Lost Diary, and the celebrated, 5-star award-winning romantic fiction drama, Willow’s Walk, comes the intense romantic drama, The Perils of Autumn.

This page-turner, set primarily in the early 1970s, centers on a young Kentucky woman, Autumn Leeves, born in 1946 to Abigail Leeves, an unwed mother who struggles to make ends meet. By 1970, Autumn graduates nursing school and is sent on assignment by the local hospital to care for the terminally-ill wife of middle-aged English equestrian master, Cyril Landon, owner of Landon Lawns Stables, a most successful thoroughbred racing stable located just outside Lexington, Kentucky in a posh community known as The Meadows.

Duff Taylor, world renown jockey who is tops in his field, lives full-time above the tack room at Landon Lawns and enjoys the many benefits it brings, but he also has a dark secret surrounding an unsolved racing incident from his past that he will go to any length to protect.

Autumn arrives at Landon Manor in time to be thrown into the chaos and finds herself caught in the ongoing disruption that ensues.

She acquired her love of literature while still in elementary school where she entered her original compositions into county fairs, school contests, and whatever venue allowed participants in the writing field. She has carried that love ever since and has put it to use many times since becoming a professional writer in 2001.

From the time of youth she has loved the Arts in their many unique forms, she is a graduate with honors in Interior Decorating & Design. She spent many years on the south-western Ontario stage performing with her family’s country music band: The Midnight Ramblers, followed by the country – rock – blues band: ‘MIRAGE’ as an accomplished vocalist, bassist, and rhythm guitarist.

Let’s Meet:

Nomi Leasure, Atticus & Scout

.

.

Atticus (see also: Fatticus; Fatty-Cakes) walked – literally – into my life spring of 2013. On the invitation of a can of tuna served on the front stoop, the bold little thing, just under a year I’d have guessed by weight and length, waltzed into my apartment, at the time shared with three other girls (all confessed “dog people”) and, as can obviously be assumed, never left.

It wasn’t unusual to see strays on the streets of North Philly. Among many other things (few cheerful, positive, or cuddly) North Philly was known for its abundance of stray cats. Atticus was one of their lot wholeheartedly; took no shit, feared no dogs, ate straight up anything. He was the sort of cat that people who said they hated cats came to love. You could wrestle with him like a pup, cuddle with him like an old, raggedy stuffed animal, and share a midnight munchie – his favorite being 35 cent Oodles n’ Noodles.

Food, it would turn out, was something Atticus really, really enjoyed. Perhaps it was those formative months spent scrounging the unforgiving and un-bountiful city streets that instilled in him the dire desire to dine. Or maybe he’s on, still, a lifelong culinary quest to satisfy those original cravings that only back alley bodega dumpster diving can sate.

In any case, he quickly became a sizable companion whom I lugged – lifting from the legs,  not the back – from city to city.

.

Together, we moved back home to Pittsburgh and converted my deathly allergic childhood best friend into a roomie and, after not too long, willing cat-cuddle-buddy. He was an outdoor cat and it wasn’t long before our backyard filled with the small femurs, skulls and shoulder girdles of unidentifiable rodents.

Atticus grew a rap on the street. Neighbors greeted him by name, invited him in for dinner, walked with him to the bus stop in the morning. One woman mentioned casually that she came home one night to find him already inside of her apartment, waiting to warmly greet her. My sister, also a roomie at the time, the road up the main drag of the neighborhood and saw him, too, strutting his way up the street, apparently headed for the Crazy Mocha.

Knowing I had to take him back indoors when I decided to move to New York was hard. The solution for this guilt was, obviously, to get another cat.

.
XJ8A1770a
.

Enter Scout … Scout was procured in a Chick-fil-A parking lot from a girl of but eleven or twelve who confessed he was riddled with worms but did I want him anyway? He could fit in my palm, and spent his first month of New York life shut in solitary confinement (so as to not spread the worms); the first and last week of that month forced to swallow anti-worm-meds twice a day from a syringe.

.


.

Despite the love, attention, and affection I paid to him during this time, I am lead to believe that this isolated and traumatizing introduction to life has left him with, how should we put this, social difficulties.

He is spastic, rigid, awkward and bashful. Next to no one aside from me can pet him, and those who can have mastered the delicate and intricate art of approaching him not from above, not too quickly, and using only a few fingers in just the right spot behind his ear.

Common perception aside he is really quite affectionate. He’s obsessed with Atticus, despite Atticus’ original detest, and then indifference toward him. When they cuddle it’s as though he can’t get close enough, perpetually shifting and repositioning himself until he is enveloped in Atticus’ fat rolls, just his slightly creepy slits of eyes visible in the fur covered blob.

Unlike Atticus (or maybe because of Atticus) he doesn’t eat much. He doesn’t seem to derive real pleasure from food, viewing it simply as the sustenance he needs to pursue his true, deep-seeded passion: Meowing at me incessantly, bleating really, until I pick up and play with his teaser toy.

.

XJ8A1856a
.

He’s easily amused, loves chasing – but not so much catching – things, and prefers to be petted on carpeting or soft surfaces.

They’re an odd pair – had they met under normal cat circumstances I don’t know that they would have taken to each other. Alas, life being the unpredictable and wily journey that it is, they have formed an undeniable bond and left a permanent paw print on each other’s hearts.

And mine!

Intimate Interview and Book Blog Tour Still Going For ~ A. Gavazzoni, Author and “Behind The Door”…

YES, READERS! THE BEHIND THE DOOR Novel Is Still Going On And This Week Adriana Gavazzoni For September 18 – 24 On  Readeropolis  
And September 25 – 31 At Book Lover Promo 

When Lara dies at the hands of a Manhattan lawyer during a sex game, his defense attorney, Carl, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor, and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Carl’s client has written a detailed account of his steamy, year-long relationship with Lara. Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis.

While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women. From hot and unusual sex and interesting psychiatric patients to the swing houses of New York and Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance, and erotica.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***AUTHOR INTERVIEW***


What was the hardest part of writing this book?

I believe the hardest part of writing all my books is containing my anxiety to get everything that’s in my head down on paper. I have to restrain myself to not run over the story to empty my mind.
What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

I love the research process that allows me to learn a lot about many different subjects, and I love the creative part, when my mind gets full of ideas, regardless of where I might be at the time or what else I might be doing.
What inspires you?

People and the human soul inspire me. I love to try to understand their motives and their beliefs.

Who are some of your favorite authors that you feel were influential in your work?

Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights – it is so tragic, all about revenge and hate; she taught me about writing about deep feelings.

Colleen McCullough’s Thorn Birds – a sad love story with all the right ingredients to make you cry a river. An author who showed me how important it is to stir emotions in your readers.

The Devil’s Advocate, by Andrew Neiderman – a book to make you think where vanity can take you. It’s a potent and surprising book. I love surprises, and I always try to add one to my novels.

John Grisham’s The Firm – power, money, or freedom? A hard choice for a young lawyer. Choices are going to lead your life. I always make my characters face hard choices.

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell – this book is pure poetry! It inspired me to show beauty in my work; even when the situation is tragic, I try to include pretty settings. Beauty must exist, in spite of bad circumstances.

What do your plans for future projects include?

I intend to finish the third book in Hidden Motives Trilogy, and I’m going to publish Behind the Door in Portuguese this year.

Do you ever get writer’s block? Any tips on how to get through the dreaded writer’s block?

No, I never have. I try to write a little bit at least every day. Some days, I’m more inspired than others, but I try to write anyway, even if I don’t like what I’m putting down in words, I know I can discard them or edit them later if I like, so that’s okay. The important thing is to keep your mind producing, and you will find the formula.

Have you ever had one character you wanted to go one way with but after the book was done the character was totally different?

About The Book:

When Lara dies at the hands of a Manhattan lawyer during a sex game, his defense attorney, Carl, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor, and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Carl’s client has written a detailed account of his steamy, year-long relationship with Lara. Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis.

While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women. From hot and unusual sex and interesting psychiatric patients to the swing houses of New York and Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance, and erotica…
