As an author in this economy, you have to come up with creative ways to market a self-published book. While book tours are a great way to connect with your readers, they aren’t the most affordable method of promotion. However, technology has made it possible for an alternative.
Take note from self-publishing Outskirts Press author, David Judd Nutting, who is taking his latest book, Secrets to a Creative Mind, on tour – a virtual book tour, that is. He will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead so keep your eyes peeled to learn more about him and his book.
Luckily for us, David was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Secrets to a Creative Mind.
OP: Tell us a little bit about Secrets to a Creative Mind. What is it about?
DJN: Secrets to a Creative Mind is a succinct non-fiction book that opens a new window to your inner self, the soul, and its discovery will awaken a fresh spirituality, which readers can use to tap into a secret world within themselves they never knew existed. Readers will learn Thought Talk, how to have a conversation with your subconscious mind to establish your goals in life and then how to make all dreams come true. You will also learn about that nero empathic tingle, unique to each individual, which arouses aesthetic pleasure. Discover the transempirical world of creativity that has been hiding from view.
OP: Why did you decide to write this story?
DJN: For over six decades I have been a very successful designer and inventor. I designed the first SUV the Jeep Grand Wagoneer the Enstrom helicopters and many other product designs. I pioneered the world of microprocessor video games creating over a dozen successful games. Always curious on how things work I concurrently reverse engineered my own creative mind and discovered the inner workings of the human mind that had never before been revealed. Before I leave this earth I considered it essential that I share my findings with the rest of humanity.
OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
DJN: Secrets to a Creative Mind will have universal appeal to male and female from 18 to 80, especially College and University students. The other prime market will be the spiritual world of body, mind and soul. Even senior citizens will buy to pass on to younger family members. Secrets to a Creative Mind will become a classic; every new generation will be future readers.
OP: What is special about your book? What differentiates it from other books in the same category?
DJN: Secrets to a Creative Mind is totally unique. No other author could write this book. As a self- help category Secrets will become the foundation for all self-help books. As a body, mind and soul category in the world of spirituality, established traditions will be challenged with new thoughts. Secrets is the only meaningful book that reveals how a creative mind functions. It takes a creative mind to explain creativity. The erudite mind of a scholar would never understand a transempirical creative mind.
OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?
DJN: In 2005 I published my first book-Language of Nature-Quantum World Revealed. Quantum physics affects all lives every minute of every day yet very few even know the quantum world exists. In each chapter of Secrets to a Creative Mind, I gently explain a basic principle of Quantum Physics. It is important the folks gain some knowledge on how the real world works. I am currently working on a second edition to Secrets to a Creative Mind , focusing in on how to Become the Master of Your Mind and discover your true self. Your purpose driven life.
OP: Thanks for your time, David! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
