Why Book Covers Are So Important l Lee Matthew Goldberg @leematthewg

WHY BOOK COVERS ARE SO IMPORTANT by Lee Matthew Goldberg The idea that you can’t judge a book by its cover is bull, since how else are you supposed to initially judge a book when wandering through the aisles in a store or clicking through Amazon online? The cover is the first and most important part of advertising before someone even cracks the spine. I’m in love with the cover for my novel The Mentor from Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press. It was designed by Jimmy Iacobelli, who did an amazing job. St. Martin’s Press asked for my input prior,

What do Surgeon’s Story and Jimmy Kimmel have in common? Lots.

If you’ve been watching TV or been online at all today, you’ve seen the story about TV host Jimmy Kimmel’s newborn son having open heart surgery for a condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. Jimmy made an incredibly moving speech about it at the start of his show last night. He and his wife were lucky in that they had access to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles and one of the best pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons in the country to take care of their child. In SURGEON’S STORY, my new book about pediatric heart surgeon Dr. Kristine Guleserian, the first patient we

When the Cure Makes Anxiety Worse by David Berndt, Ph.D.

When the Cure Makes Anxiety Worse By David Berndt, Ph.D. When I was writing Overcoming Anxiety I noticed one glaring omission in most of the current literature, and that was any in depth discussion of whether, when combatting anxiety, to rely on one technique or another. Is medication always a good idea? Should you challenge a negative thought or maybe instead do some deep breathing, or would self-hypnosis be a better strategy? You see, even very useful and proven techniques are more useful in some situations than others. Escape Techniques: When to use them One consideration is that when you

Eight Writers Who Most Inspired Me by Seth Mullins, author of The Edge of the Known Trilogy

Eight Writers Who Most Inspired Me   The writers who most inspired me offered a sort of spiritual comfort that I couldn’t find anywhere else. Their creations shone a light on creative processes that ran deeper even than the craft of writing itself. What, exactly, is an artistic vision? How does one cultivate it? And how does one learn to live with it? These luminaries all provided valuable pieces to the existential puzzle. Stephen R. Donaldson wove tales that might be occurring on some alternate world or might be happening within the world that we call the ‘real’. Discovering “The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant”, at age eleven,

I Made It – Not Without My Father by Andrea Watson

I Made It – Not Without My Father By Andrea Watson The Natchez Trace. Northwestern Alabama. I forced my bloody feet to carry me through Tasmanian-devil-like dustbowls. When I licked my lips, I tasted grit from the dawn of the universe. For the twentieth time, I dragged my body from whence the wind battered it, back to the grassy shoulder. And I kept walking. I still had five miles to cover in my 26th consecutive fifteen-mile day. A minivan swerved toward me. A victim of the whimsy of the wind. Like me. Or so I thought. Until it stopped, plowed

Writing, Caregiving and Alzheimer’s Disease by author Barry Tutor

ABOUT NEVER GIVING UP & NEVER WANTING TO Like most, I knew about Alzheimer’s disease. It causes old people to forget. When my relationship with this disease began, it highlighted how little I knew.

What I learned and experienced during her affliction still left me somewhat unprepared for what was yet to come. Sixteen months following my mother’s diagnosis, my dear wife and best friend was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s. Though now I was familiar with this

Guest Post: The Inspiration Behind When Shmack Happens by Amber Neben

Where did I get the inspiration to write When SHMACK Happens? Literarily speaking, I hit the wall, and I hit it HARD!!  My life, my goals, and my next steps were redirected in a span of a few seconds.  Prior to impact, I was on target to win that huge race at The Tour of California, and I was plotting ahead to more cycling goals, maybe even the 2016 Olympic Games.  After the impact, I laid on the pavement while my body screamed at me because it hurt…  SEVERELY.  Blood poured out of my nose and other parts of me.

Guest Blogger: How to Craft a Unique and Necessary Book Idea That Sells by Nina Amir

How to Craft a Unique and Necessary Book Idea that Sells Most aspiring authors believe their ideas are unique and readers absolutely need to read their books. Like these writers, you may feel convinced your book idea is new, fresh, timely, different, and essential. It’s great to feel passionate, enthusiastic and confident when the proverbial light bulb goes off, but those feelings—and your conviction—simply aren’t enough reason to write and publish a book. You must have facts that unequivocally prove your idea is unique and necessary in the marketplace. These facts must convince a literary agent, first, and an acquisitions
