How do I know? I get STATS!!!
I have met more interesting people in the past 6 months since I published my book! The author of this book, Sylvie Heyman comes from my hometown and we share a lot in common. So, here is to another fringe benefit of publishing!
THANK YOU TO MY BLOG MASTER FOR PUTTING ME ON WORDPRESS. I blogged a little blog. A few people read it. I blogged again – another little blog. People visited and viewed it. I found I had an outlet to my voice. I blogged again and again. All little blogs. Now I have a book. It is available for circulation in my local library. One of my clients ordered a book and donated it to her local library.
“My father would be so proud,” my mother would tell me. He revered books. My mother revered crafts. As you can see, I had no shot at being a big business person from the very beginning! But, I have already been on one podcast, one radio talk show, am scheduled to do a book talk, am scheduled to be on a local public access t v interview show, and will be on a podcast radio show -that operates out of Durham, NC. And my book just debuted Oct. 6th! “Not too shabby,” my friend would say.
If YOU WANT TO BUY A COPY FOR YOUR LIBRARY, THAT WOULD BE A FABULOUS CHANUKAH GIFT TO ME AND TO OTHERS WHO ARE AGING. AND 18% of the proceeds goes to Memorial Sloan Kettering – if not for our sakes, then for the sake of our children.
p.s. I AM FIVE FULL CHAPTERS INTO MY NEXT BOOK!
It was filled with humorous experiences and also sad ones. I enjoyed reading it, learning that as my grandmother said, “Getting old is hard work!”
Nothing comes easy, and especially not aging. Thank you to this reader/reviewer who got my book!
Click on look inside on http://www.amazon.com RAGING AGAINST AGING. For the 60 + crowd. Think: HOLIDAY GIFT!
My doctor is into the arts. Of course she is. She was raised in Europe and she thrives on culture – the kind of culture we, here, do not often appreciate. Because we are a society that appreciates what exactly? Thrills? Distractions? Never mind, if you want a doctor who cares about your heart – not just the physical heart – but the emotional one, too, CALL me and I will share my contact information!!!!
Here is how it works: I posted here on wordpress and on Facebook and LinkedIn about my podcast. (The rabbi who interviewed me, found me from my Facebook postings). Another rabbi heard the podcast and found my email address from the organization’s flyer. She emailed me and asked me to present some time in December. I will post details so that all my former colleagues can come since it will be near the district. The internet is amazing. I am really not tech savvy. I am, however, an incredible networker and the network is called a network for a reason!!!!!
I posted a podcast on wordpress, Facebook, and Linked In. A rabbi read the post, listened to the podcast, and contacted me and wants me to do a workshop about…AGING, of course. From blog, to chapter, to chapters, to book, to writing on the blog site, to sharing on Facebook and Linked In, to a workshop. This is the POWER of the INTERNET!
Will post details when I know the details!
