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.

Really Very Miracle …Tumblr.com

True to form, I’m learning social media as I use it. So Tumblr is new for me, but it’s interesting. Please, go take a quick peek at my new site. It’s called “Really Very Miracle”.

We all are unique, beautiful, and outstanding individuals. We need to use our love and intuition to connect, discuss, and aid our societies. Each tormented soul or mind must be touched by love and healed. There is plenty of love to go around if we but search within ourselves to seek the quiet pleas of haunted eyes, crying out for help.

You will be astounded by the glory and miracles we possess that are never released and allowed to grow. Find your inner peace and we can change the world….one silenced, fearful being at a time. It is so worth the effort to watch someone blossom before your very eyes …It is “Really Very Miracle” to touch another soul’s heart when you act as a vessel of The Creator who gave you life. Life is for abundance, joy, and love. Let’s pass it around and share the manifestation of heaven on earth.

Blessings, Deborah A. Bowman

Smorgasbord Book Promotion – Twitter – Tagging and Pinned Tweet to spread the word.

Thank you, Sally, for great information. I wanted to share this great author’s words of wisdom, hard work, and dedication. I know the key to promotion is consistency, but I don’t always practice what I preach. Thank you, Sally Cronin, for reminding us all what’s important in the writing industry.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

I am almost at 10,000 posts since I began blogging four years ago and at least half of those are book promotions. It is one of the reasons that I began blogging four years ago as I wanted a platform to promote my own work as well.

When I look at those posts in retrospect, is quite clear that the ones that did well as far as comments, reblogs and sharing was concerned, were ones where the author featured participated fully in the effort.

This means reblogging (better a couple of days later to keep the ball rolling) shared across their own Facebook, Twitter and other social media, and very importantly responded to comments over a period of days. This engagement with people who took the time to comment is critical in building relationships that support going forward.

Apart from sharing on Facebook and Twitter, these particular authors also responded…

Slow Down and Look Around… Where Are We Going and Where Have We Come From?

earthIt’s our world, our planet

It needs a little support right now

Stretch out your hearts and demand it

Does anyone even know how?

Love, caring, and sharing

Uniting to become as one

How is your personal journey faring?

How do we know if we’ve won?

Do we always have to win?

It isn’t a puzzle or game

Who determines what is and isn’t sin?

Do we react just to acquire wealth and fame?

What does fame without health do for each of us personally

When it feels like everything is worsening?

Is it? Or is it measured by what we hear;

What we fear; what we hold dear; what brings us to tears?

So many questions and too few answers…

Look in the mirror, the reflection of each

Soul, person, mind, heart to reach and teach

Only what we know as truth, one at a time

About equality and how to nurture the future

How to tighten the ties in unity that bind

One to the other, lifting up the spirit of another

In peace, in support, “In God we trust…”

Don’t always be in a state of rush

Slow down and let yourself get grounded

Breathe in calmness and happiness

Let go and listen to the whisper of hushed tranquility and unity…

eagle and flag

God Bless The United States of America

Have a happy, loving, safe 4th of July!

Annie’s Story, Blessed With A Gift Review

Many thanks to this unknown reader who praised my research, story, and mission concerning Annie from the mid-1600s Colonial America. The points mentioned in the review are exactly what I was trying to point out … in history, in the treatment between different ethnicities and religions, and the abuse, bullying, and demonic fear of children, mere babies, with birth defects in a land where people came to escape the tyranny of Europe. My hypothesis is that this is still going on in the world today, even in the United States of America.

Many thanks to this reader from the author … Deborah A. Bowman

REVIEW:
on June 25, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
Life in America circa 1,600 CE can’t have been easy, not with the English intent on stamping their domination and with the Puritans extolling so called Christian virtues to the extreme. As the saying goes: the more things change, the more it remains the same.
Annie’s Story provides a unique insider’s look into the world of newly emigrated people, the Scots, to a free land where they could safely continue worshipping their faith—Catholicism. For Annie, born into a world where one’s physical differences and abilities were considered the child of the devil, it was life threatening.
Annie was raised by her grandmother, a renowned Scottish healer, after her parents died from the plague. This story highlights the hardships endured by immigrants in a world vastly different to their own, who contend with harshness of the land, weather and hiding their beliefs from their neighbours—the Puritans.
Annie was a dwarf and a healer, born in the mid-17th century in Colonial America. Her family left Scotland to avoid the harsh and imperial rule of the English King Charles II, migrated to Massachusetts Bay area, not far from a Puritan settlement. Her grandmother, taught Annie the art and skills of ‘pagan’ medicine after witnessing her miraculously heal a man who almost died.
Annie’s grandmother, her best friend Janey, her parents and the Scottish community protect and shield Annie from outsiders, who don’t understand her physical and mental disabilities. The young girl heals a boy from the Puritan township, which they later become friends and then fall in love.
One of the subjects I am not overly familiar with is American history. The Civil War was perhaps its greatest exponents, as was Abraham Lincoln, and so when I started reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I read historical fiction, but tend to go for books that predate Christianity.
What intrigued and drew me to the story was that it was premised on a past-life regression, in this case, the author’s. Bowman prefaces the book with background information that she underwent an “age” regression, and in follow up sessions, learnt she lived in another time and went by the name of Annie. The book has facts interwoven within the story, about Annie, the period and the way people who were different were treated. It is evident a great deal of research has gone into the story, describing what life was like during Colonial America for migrants, the Indians and how the Puritans lived.
The use of Scottish phrases and terms is great and it remains true to the characters, but I would have preferred a glossary at the end of the book rather than the explanation within the narrative.
For readers who know little about America’s early history, Annie’s Story is a good introduction to life during a period of unrest in Colonial America. For those who know a lot more, you will enjoy the various historical elements that feature in this story.
