Book Review: Where’s the Money? Ideas on Book Promotion by: Ruth Ann Nordin

Where’s the Money? Ideas on Book Promotion by: Ruth Ann Nordin

For those of us who have written a book, but aren’t sure how to let the world know about it, this book helps tremendously. Ms. Nordin is a stay-at-home mom who has written and published over 17 books. She is now able to make a living with her writing, selling thousands of her books every month. 

Her advice is straightforward and easy, not ‘salesy’ at all. Her first tips include getting to know social networking sites like FaceBook and Twitter. Then, she goes on to talk about probably the most important thing in promoting a book and that’s simply to write a great book! Then, you have to have a great cover. Like it or not, great covers sell books.

She also talks about starting an ‘Author Page’ on FaceBook and a ‘First Draft’ blog. The first draft blog serves two functions, it gives exposure to your book and you get to write. She talks about pricing and distribution as well.

One of the great things about this book is that it’s free! Get your copy here.

With today’s technology, it’s easier than ever before to become a published author. Unfortunately, that same technology can be somewhat daunting. Ms. Nordin gives some easy-to-follow steps to getting out there!

Book Review: What Kids Pray by: Nancy Watrud

What Kids Pray by: Nancy Watrud

This is a lovely book that goes beyond “Now I lay me down to sleep…” As a veteran Sunday School Teacher, Nancy has heard it all. In this book she talks about all of the cute things that children pray as well as some of the more distressing things that children face today. She gives ideas for helping children to pray out loud and in front of others. She also has suggestions on how to deal with everything from shyness to over-active imaginations.

I think this would be a nice addition to anyone’s home library, especially those who work with children. Nancy gives ideas for teaching in general, not just Sunday School. It’s a very short book, but very sweet.

Available in paperback and as an e-book (kindle, etc). 

Also available on
