Busted: Wheelin’ N Dealin’

by Thomas Frederick Mills

(4.5 Stars – 53 Customer Reviews)

Price: $23.95

Thomas Frederick Mills’s “Busted: Wheelin’ N Dealin’.” Sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll helped fuel Big T’s decision to take a risk and make the big money he’d always dreamed about… But he didn’t predict that the drug business would cost him over 20 years in a prison cell with nothing but his passion for success in an unforgiving world. Told from an outlaw’s point of view, this book is a baby boomer’s anthem. Infused with author’s own childhood experiences with music, movies, books, and TV, this is a story everyone in his world-changing generation can relate to.

Local Media Outreach For Self-Publishing Authors: Go Big and Go Home (to your hometown, that is!)

If you’ve done any sort of media outreach yourself, you know it is often easier said than done. Success typically comes down to perseverance. But success also depends upon contacting the right people at the right time.

Every city has its share of radio stations, and each of those radio stations have on-air personalities for designated blocks of time. Some radio programs are geared exclusively to music. Others, exclusively to news. And still others exclusively to a mash-up of music, entertainment, and listener engagement. Media Outreach involves identifying the appropriate people to contact and making those in-roads. That typically involves having a media kit.

Since you’re a local author in THEIR area, they’re exponentially more likely to be interested than if you sent an unsolicited pitch to a national or global program like, say, Howard Stern, or NPR.

But Media Outreach doesn’t begin and end with radio. Every major city also has its fair share of local newscasts and entertainment programs on television. These program producers are constantly on the prowl for unique, original programming featuring someone, or something, of local interest. In much the same manner you located and pitched the radio stations, you’ll identify and pitch the television producers, too.

Do you want more than radio and television exposure? How about city-wide newspapers and/or community leaflets or fliers. Almost all commercial areas from the suburbs to the major cities harbor newsletters, newspapers, coupon periodicals, and the like. And what do you think the chances are that your local community newspaper will write an article about a local author with a published book? We’re betting pretty good! In fact, your local community newspapers should also be one of your very first steps on the road to marketing, since the success rate is so high.

by Elias Pagonitis

(5 Stars – 1 Customer Review)

Price: $23.95

Elias Pagonitis’s “Of Gods and Heroes: An Unbiased Retelling of the Story of the Gods and Heroes of Ancient Greece” is an unsanitized account of being a gay warrior in ancient Greece. Inspired by Joseph Campbell and modeling Asopichos on both Luke Skywalker from Star Wars and Neo from The Matrix, Pagonitis has written a book for every reader who, like Pagonitis, has suffered from the devastating, horrific effects of homophobia. Taking on us a whirlwind ride from his simple boyhood on shores of Lake Helikē to his initiation as a warrior-lover in the Sacred Band, Asopichos had a great victory over the Spartans at Leuctra and his awakening to ultimate reality.
