Help Support Your Favorite Author: a “How To” List

It’s been just over a month now since the launch of Sheila Applegate’s book: Enchanted One, The Portal to Love.  As someone married to an author, I know first-hand just how time consuming and sometimes all-consuming writing and promoting a book can be.  It can be exhausting.  But I also know that for an author, especially a first-time author, publishing a book is exhilarating, and for many, the fulfillment of a lifetime dream. Think about it for a minute.  Browse the shelves of a library or your local bookstore, or even, and you’re looking at exceptional efforts made by extraordinary individuals, each with a passion to share his or her message with the world. Not everyone, including myself, has the inclination or ambition to make such a mark on the world.  For those of us who don’t, unless you know an author personally, it is very easy to take their efforts for granted.  A book, just one book, represents hours, months, sometimes years of toil and trouble.  While some consider it a labor of love, others may consider their book the worst “assignment” ever.  I know; I’m married to an author.  Remember? So what can we as readers do to support an author?  Our favorite author?  If you’re like me, and if you’re reading this post, I’m assuming you have an interest in doing so.   And if you’re reading THIS post because you’re interested in supporting Sheila Applegate and because you believe in her message, then I’ll use her as an example.  Here is what you can do to help spread your enthusiasm for Sheila’s work (or any...

Virtual Book Tour with Sheila Applegate, Day 5

One of the most delightful parts about being on a virtual book tour is the wonderful people I am meeting!  Today’s stops are a perfect reflection of these beautiful connections. I first heard about Lori Deschene’s blog tiny buddha: simple wisdom for complex lives through my marketing supervisor at Redwheel and Weiser Publishing.  She referenced Lori as a success story example.  When I visited her website, I instantly fell in love with it!  So you can imagine I was quite excited when Lori notified me that she had chosen my article on creating peace to be a post on her tiny buddha blog.  I have to say after meeting Lori, she truly does embody the message of Love that is so evident in her website. Enjoy the Article and remember to leave a comment to let us know your thoughts.  While you are exploring the Tiny Buddha website be sure to check out the Tiny Wisdom Ebook Series.  They’re a great way to support you as you create Joy in 2013! Meeting Dr. Susan Allison, host of Empowered Healer Radio, was equally as joyful.  I’m pleased to say I will be a guest on her program tonight at 5pm EST.  In her first email to me, Dr. Allsion wrote “I already love your energy and resonate with your message” and I felt the same way.  The synergy between us was instant and it felt like reconnecting with an old friend!  I am sure that this show will reflect harmony between us and I look forward to our time together on air!  Be sure to join us for what is...

Please enjoy a glimpse into The Destiny Discovery as Michelle shares with us a taste of her powerful approach to helping you discover and live your destiny. Q: Michelle, can you share with us some of your personal story that has led you to writing The Destiny Discovery book? Why this book, and why now? A: Before I got started with Life Coaching and writing books, I was a career counselor in the higher educational field, because I wanted to know what I wanted to be “when I grew up,” and I figured if I could help other people figure it out, that would help me too.  So during the course of my career, I have performed many roles—as a freelance writer, adjunct instructor, and counselor helping thousands of people undergoing the process of deciding upon a career or even changing career fields entirely.  One thing I excelled at was teaching adults, particularly graduate students.  I have a knack for teaching complex ideas and making them “practical” and easy-to-understand.  That is why I am so successful...
