Virtual Book Tour: “Surviving Multiple Sclerosis” by Anntionate Salciccia

With the abundance of self-published authors, 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.

The self-publishing market is crowded with books, making it difficult for individual authors to stand out. Book tours have long been an established tradition among authors, but while they provide fantastic opportunities for connecting with readers, they can pose some significant challenges in terms of cost and time. Technology has provided the perfect solution in the form of a virtual book tour, a process which combines many of the highlights of the traditional form with the benefits of the digital universe.

Enter Outskirts Press author Anntionate Salciccia, whose latest book, Surviving Multiple Sclerosis, provides an insider’s perspective on multiple sclerosis (MS). Her book chronicles her successes in managing her symptoms by combining her vegetarian lifestyle with meditation and a specialized exercise regimen. As anyone suffering from chronic pain or illness can attest, this is no mean feat … and Salciccia is here to share her wisdom with us!

Anntionate Salciccia sat down with us to answer a few questions about her book by way of a virtual book tour, giving you unparalleled access to her insight and a behind the scenes glimpse into the writing of her book.

OP: Tell us, why did you decide to write Surviving Multiple Sclerosis?

AS: One of the main reasons I decided to write my life story was to show anyone with an illness or facing great pain, that it is possible. It is possible to survive, I myself am a testimony to this fact, having lived with an illness that gives me constant pain, 24/7. I manage my multiple sclerosis (MS) without pain medication. It is possible!

OP: Can you describe what material the book covers?

AS: The book begins with my story, and how I deal with different challenges and obstacles I have gone through over the course of my life, some without MS and some with or because of MS. Many of the challenges I have faced have to deal with pain, memory, and managing physical difficulties without pain medication.

OP: What was the publishing process like for you, and what’s next?

AS: I had my book published through Outskirts Press. It’s the first book I have ever written, but I plan on writing a children’s book in the future.

OP: What makes your book different? What does it have that other books on multiple sclerosis (MS) do not?

AS: I have done and seen many extraordinary things in my life, and I have had some extraordinary jobs, like being an extra in movies and working on a cruise ship. I have even passed my test to become a firefighter. I have done all of this while living with chronic pain and illness. What’s so special about Surviving Multiple Sclerosis?

It chronicles how I overcame challenges through prayer and meditation, and I hope that it serves as a source of inspiration for others.

OP: Thank you for sharing your book with us, Anntionate! We can’t wait to see what adventures life takes you on next. We look forward to learning more about you as you visit with other bloggers!

Anntionate Salciccia is a mother of 4 children and a Christian that prays twice daily. She enjoys reading other author’s autobiographies, and also enjoys vegetarian cooking. She would like the readers to know that 10% of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the MS Society.

The Portal: The Cort Chronicles Book 1 by David D. Bernstein

With the abundance of self-published authors, 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 D. Bernstein, who is taking his latest book, The Portal, 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 The Portal: The Cort Chronicles Book 1.

OP: Tell us a little bit about The Portal: The Cort Chronicles Book 1. What is it about?

David:  The book is about two brothers named Zack and Andy who are transported to a ghostly version of their hometown 101 years in the future. They find out that it is now controlled by CORT Robots. They have made people slaves. This version of the hometown is a possible future of earth. The brothers must journey through a nightmare world that only they can change. But how can two young boys alter the present by saving the future.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

David:  I decided to write this book because I strongly believe that our world today is full of technology, hate and is really hard for children to live in. I believe that this book can give our children a chance to escape everything and just enjoy an adventure. Imagination and storytelling play very critical roles in a child’s life and development. I believe this book could change their lives for the better. It gives them a chance to journey with these two boys as they save the world. I hope that children can immerse themselves in this wonderful world I created.

OP: How did you get your book published?

David: The book itself took me eight years to write and edit. It also was sent to few Traditional publishers before I self-Published. After receiving some rejection letters, I decided to self-publish this work of literature; I decided to go with a company I was familiar with. I had self-published another book with Outskirts press before and had a great experience with the team. The process was very professional, fun and easy to do.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

David: I think the types of readers this book will interest are people from 6 and up. It is a little hard for younger readers. I also believe that any adult who loves Science Fiction and Fantasy would love this book. It creates a world controlled by a massive Corporation named CORT (Central Operation Robot Technology) their ultimate goal is to have full control of people’s lives in all they do. This includes foods, shopping habits and etc…

OP: What is special about your book?  

David:  I think what makes this book unique is how it matches with our current times. Today people are waking up from a long sleep, and they are letting their voices be heard. We also have a world where technology has turned addictive. People of all ages are very dependent on it.

The Portal explores the possibility of what if Robots or a massive corporation takes over our world. What would each person do? Would they join a resistance? Would they join the Corporation? Would they just be part of the crowd? I think this is what makes my book special. It kind of is a warning to individuals of possible future.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

David: I believe that one of the biggest differences of my book is how it is very visual, action packed and it combines three Genres in one: Science Fiction, Fantasy and Adventure. Another difference is it mostly revolves around children and explores a possible world we might become in the future. It takes readers on a journey that they will never forget.

OP: Have you published any other books?

David: Yes, I have my first book was a collection of poetry I wrote over the course of about 15 years. My second book was called The Enchanted Rope it was a picture book that helps both children and adults deal with a death of a loved one, my third book is named The Portal and my newest book is called Peanut. It is a picture book that should be coming out in Spring 2018. It helps families and children deal with divorce.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

David: In the near future I have plans to publish my other two books in my trilogy. Spirral which should be out by spring 2019 and Rebirth which should be out by spring 2020.

OP: Thanks for your time, David! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
