We want to Spotlight your work!

Reading is Power!  An important way to gain knowledge and grow personally and professionally is through reading. Through this blog and my community, National Association Women on the Rise (NAWR); we are passionate about promoting the work of women authors.  If you have published one or more books, we want to profile your work.

Here’s how:

As a featured author, you will have the opportunity to market your book to our various communities.  A link to order copies of your book will be included with your interview.  Your book will also be featured in our Ning community under the group, ‘Women Authors, ‘ that is, if you join our growing 570 member community!  Join TODAY, its FREE!  In addition, we will profile you in our social communities, such as:

RETWEET: Please retweet on Twitter the same day and a couple more times.

INVITE COMMENTS: We suggest that you send a gracious, personalized note to a few chosen friends with a link to your post, inviting them to comment. The value for them is the link back to their own blogs or websites, increased visibility, and the possibility of making new connections.

Sylvia’s request:

  • My request of you is to provide me a complimentary autographed copy of your book to read and properly market. This is NOT necessary to be featured.
  • PLEASE UNDERSTAND that sending me your book will not guarantee you a BOOK REVIEW.  My reading pile is humongous… and I DO NOT read  under a time-frame since unfortunately, I do not read for a living; this project (author interviews & FREE marketing using my social media connections) is a way to recognize the work of amazing authors and one in which I enjoy doing and not compensated for.

    Hello,

    My name is Cheryl F. Batoon and I recently published my first fictional novel, “My Four-Cornered Room”. I was unable to post a link directly to my blog page where I have an in-depth summary of my book. Go to my blog page (Link provided above to my website) and check the archives for October 2009. Go there and you will be linked to a summary of my book and a link to purchase my book.

    I was laid off in January 2009 from Corporate. After 27 years in Corporate, I decided to cash-out my retirement and write/publish my book which I did. I rediscovered my passion for writing again and started my blog site (see website above). My writings were inspired by Spirit and also Tupac Shakur.

    I was inspired to write about the plight of so many people when they spend too much time in their four-cornered rooms or too much time outside of it. It is about how four major characters turn their lives around, rediscover their passions, and meet up with their soul families. It is inspirational and spiritual. I expect my book to be a movie.

    I’m currently working on my 2nd book which is a non-fiction on relationships. I would love to be featured in your newsletter and promoted on your site. Thank you so much and much blessings to you. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Cheryl F. Batoon

    I am a woman author – my book is HER TURN Why It’s Time For Women To Lead in America http://www.amazon.com/Her-Turn-Time-Women-America/dp/0275999246/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1263493073&sr=1-1
    I wrote the book to share the power, influence and importance of women’s leadership in America. Hope to hear from women who believe as I do that without recognizing and advancing women to leadership positions we as a country could be left behind in the next decade.

For more information, please visit http://www.succeedasyourownboss.com

    About the Book

    Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months; A Month-by-Month Guide to a Business That Works is not a book about writing a business plan, it’s about planning your successful small business.

    Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months provides a realistic, month-by-month planning guide to start a sustainable and profitable small business. If you’re planning to start a business soon, the key to being successful is not only creating a sound business concept but also taking the time to figure out the business of running a business.

    Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months walks you step-by-step through the Emerson Planning System, which will reduce an entrepreneur’s learning curve. Each month readers can accomplish a milestone, including how to:

    Month 1: Develop a Life Plan
    Month 3: Set a One-Year Budget
    Month 5: Visualize Your Business
    Month 9: Build Your Marketing Strategy
    Month 11: Launch Your Business

    What inspired me to write this book? My mission is to end small business failure. I believe that too many small businesses fail due to a lack of planning. The book is based on the Emerson Planning System, which I developed to help people transition from their corporate job to starting a business. It counts them down over 12 months to start a business the right way.

    What is the message of this book? Whether you’re newly unemployed or sick of corporate America, if you’re longing to start a small business, you can follow your dream. You supply the energy, the idea, the elbow grease—and Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months supplies the plan.

    What advice do you have for writers: Be patient and do not to publish too quickly. Go through all the edits that your book needs. Make an investment in your book by engaging a publicist six months prior to your publication date.

    Why should people buy the book? If you want a proven roadmap to start a successful small business you need Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months!

    Thanks–
    Melinda F. Emerson
