You CAN AND DO judge a book by its Cover!

As an author, editor, designer, and publishing agent, I’ve learned very definitely that the cover is the first glimpse of a book that gets your inquisitive juices flowing! Based on that premise, I have updated both the cover and manuscript for Episode One, The Boy and the Shopkeeper; Delilah, Astral Investigator Infinity Series for “tweens”/teens/young adult and all adults who love to delve into time travel and astral projection. The second Episode will be coming out soon, “The Boy Who Would Be King!”

I hope the new cover will create the excitement and thrill this Astral Investigative Team deserves, especially in the areas of REVIEWS, as they travel back in time and to the future to save our ailing, doomed planet Earth!

SLE LUPUS AND DRUG SIDE-EFFECTS

It is with a heavy heart that I write to my sisters who share this unpredictable, auto-immune deficiency disease. My empathy overflows when I see vital, mostly young, women who are just being diagnosed, but are hopefully learning how to care for themselves, when even doctors may be challenged how to fight this indefinable illness. Know your own body … what works for you … what triggers the pain, fatigue, and anxiety that comes with this insidious wolf (root word, Lupus, means “wolf” in French) that dwells inside us, eating away our hopes, dreams, and futures … literally.

I recently had a drug side-effect from a new-to-me medication, which hospitalized me for almost a week. I advocate for the cure, support, and especially understanding from others who may not be able to “see” the wolf lying in wait to take away our spirit, self-esteem, and essence from our loved ones.

What is the difference between a PublishING Company and a PublishER? This is my definition. Please, send me questions in the comments.

Pushlishing Vs. Publisher, Not Really. We Work Together for the Author/Writer/Entrepreneur

The difference between a PublishING company and a PublishER is that a company like ours gets the writer/author/website admin ready to submit the final product to a PublishER, Printer or IT Specialist, which we, as consultants, can recommend, manage, and assist with all media/all genre with a professional viewpoint and research the available options.

We are in no way involved in distribution, dissemination, selling books to keep a client’s royalties, promote manuscripts, business promo packages or anything you can imagine. New insights and technology is constantly being improved upon and created. We are involved in the entire process of Creativity!

Many fellow authors and bloggers know that I personally, as CEO, offer free reader’s reviews or editorial reviews, which I submit to the author to change, use, whatever you wish, because authors include editorial reviews on their own sales websites.

We also copyright Works-In-Progress until a PublishER accepts your work and publishes their own copyright, which I believe should be in your name, not the Publisher’s, but every company does things a little differently.

We critique PublishER’s contracts, even the small print, if you wish. We recommend printers, sales venues, promotional suggestions, social media contacts, networking, and produce websites in a visual and written current style design, with the client using their own IT person for SEO or we can recommend someone. I study and research all aspects of PublishING for my clients, remaining in touch with buzz words, new ideas, and new evolving technologies.

Let me help you with all my decades of expertise, which can be accessed under my Bio “Who Am I?”
