All-CON 2020 in Addison TX –CANCELLED!

Well, I was set up and ready for the first day at ALL-CON Thursday. I was looking forward to meeting with other sci-fi fans. Then Friday morning I found a note on my table stating by order of the City of Dallas all events with over 500 attendees will close by 11 a.m. March 13, 2020. Oh well, there’s next year.

Junk Mail and SASE Book Promotions

A little something I would like to share to my friends. My wife and I refinanced our house and got a better deal through Rocket Mortgage/Quicken Loans. Now I know why. They sell my contact info to others to make up the difference. Today in the mail we received 8 letters from different companies claiming they are working with Quicken Loans trying to sell us insurance for life and the mortgage. They had the ‘exact’ amount of the loan in each letter. Now let the spam begin…
 
The good side is I got 8 self-address stamped envelopes I’m going to use to promote my books. Instead of sending them their filled-out forms, I sending them each a card to promote the books (and they paid for the stamps).

Fly It Like You Stole It!

My first attempt creating a YouTube Video. What would you do if you found an abandoned flying saucer in your own backyard? Me, I would fly it like I stole it. Post below what you would do… Check out what Jack Slater did in USA: Eliminated!, available on Amazon at… www.amazon.com/gp/bookseries/B081K8M5TB#

A Fact About Facebook

A little something for my fellow authors (and other small businesses). I was just reading “The 10 Commandments of Author Branding” by Shayla Raquel about using social media. It has a good section on Facebook and she mentioned something I wanted to share. On page 50 she says… “Fact: according to Facebook’s policies, you’re not supposed to use your profile as a business.” If you do, Facebook can suspend your profile or shut it down. For authors, it’s best to create an author page on Facebook for your business (it’s still free).

Bookmarks for The Jupiter Factor Series

I’ve had some people ask about my bookmarks so I decide to share them and give a little background on the races.  They are all introduced in someway in my second book, Conflict: Earth!, available on Amazon at www.amazon.com/gp/bookseries/B081K8M5TB# , B&N, and other fine bookstores.

Pre-Book Review on Author Branding

I just started reading a book called “The 10 Commandments of Author Branding” by Shayla Raquel.  I saw her last October at Writers in the Field speak on branding and bought a copy of her new book.  So far I’m still in Commandment II, Thou Shalt Have a Local Writing Community.  One thing I liked was she said you should start branding yourself before you publish your book.  Now she tells me.  I’ve already published my second book.  Oops.

There are some other things she mentioned I liked as well.  Be yourself on social media, not a businessman/woman.  I spent right over 30 years running my DJ business before retiring and I find it hard to switch back when it comes to promoting my books.  So, here goes nothing.

If you’re interested in checking out her book you can find it here.
