The Gilded Cage

Today’s Featured Author and Book

The Gilded Cage

Click to get your copy!

Book Description:

Born to society and a life of privilege, Bertha Honoré married Potter Palmer, a wealthy entrepreneur who called her Cissy. Neither dreamed the direction the other’s life would take. He built the Palmer House Hotel, still famed today, and became one of the major robber barons of the city, giving generously to causes of which he approved. She put philanthropy into words, going into shanty neighborhoods, inviting factory girls to her home, working at Jane Addams’ settlement Hull House, supporting women’s causes.


It was a time of tremendous change and conflict in Chicago as the city struggled to put its swamp-water beginnings behind it and become a leading urban center. A time of the Great Fire of 1871, the Haymarket Riots, and the triumph of the Columbian Exposition. Potter and Cissy handled these events in diverse ways. Fascinating characters people these pages along with Potter and Cissy—Carter Harrison, frequent mayor of the city; Harry Collins, determined to be a loser; Henry Honoré, torn between loyalties to the South and North; Daniel Burnham, architect of the new Chicago—and many others.


The Gilded Cage is a fictional exploration of the lives of these people and of the Gilded Age in Chicago history.

She is also the author of six books in the Kelly O’Connell Mysteries series: Skeleton in a Dead Space, No Neighborhood for Old Women,Trouble in a Big Box, Danger Comes Home, Deception in Strange Places, and Desperate for Death, and the Blue Plate Café Mysteries—Murder at the Blue Plate Café, Murder at the Tremont House and Murder at Peacock Mansion.With the 2014 publication of The Perfect Coed, she introduced the Oak Grove Mysteries.

Should You Respond to Reviewers – Q&A Wednesday via Facebook Live

Q&A:

Should you respond to reviewers after they review your book?


Today’s question came from author Stephen Murray.  He wrote The Chapel of Eternal Love and Return to the Chapel of Eternal Love.  

His question:

“Yesterday, I received two 5 star reviews on my books from the ‘Readers Favorite’ group. I submitted for their contest awhile back. On their site, they have a space for comments under the book review.  Is it appropriate for the author to acknowledge the review and thank the reviewer? Considered gauche, bad taste, good taste?  Not sure what the ‘literary protocol’ is in these instances.” <sic>

We dove into Stephen’s question and talked about how to respond to positive as well as negative reviews.  

Want to have your question answered? Send us your question to AuthorsTalkAboutIt@gmail.com.  And, make sure you click below and join our Facebook group, so you can join or watch later our Q&A Wednesday Lives as well as our Mini-Training Wednesday Lives.

Just Like Gravity

Book Description:

Haunted. Plagued. Tortured. 

How many times can you make the same mistake? How many lifetimes does it take to get it right? And how many people have to die in the process? In Scotland, Anna searches for answers. She finds cold rain, steep hills… and terror. When she sees the ancient broch, the ruined building triggers a terror she can’t explain. Scenes from her past lives provide glimpses of the web of events linking her to the broch and the man she’s lost countless times before. 

Trapped in an eddy of Fate invariably ending in blood, Anna tries to break the chain and protect what she lost before. Her tealeaves and tarot cards lead her, but the weight of the past may be too heavy.

True Colors

Click to get your copy!

Book Description:

Every day I walked down the sidewalk to school and wished I were one of the interesting popular girls who ran up with exciting news. Just once I’d like to be one of those girls instead of the being the one who didn’t get invited to things because people “forgot” about me. 

Landry gets pushed into trying out for the American IngEnue reality show modeling competition with her two best friends. She doesn’t think she stands a chance, but she advances to the next level in the competition and her friends ignore her when they get cut. 

Enter the gorgeous Devon, who also makes the first cut and includes Landry in her clique. Devon becomes the perfect best friend, but can their friendship survive the competition? 

Landry hopes her big break could come at any moment, but soon sees there’s much more to modeling. She begins missing out on being with friends and has the chance to have a boyfriend when she meets a boy named Vladi from another school. 

Part of Landry wants to be famous (and have her hair look good for once), but part of her just wants to be accepted. She learns about friendships, being true to yourself, and that a good hair conditioner doesn’t hurt.

Should You Self-Publish or Traditionally Publish

Self vs Traditional

You have a book within you.  You feel it.  You know it.  Yet, you have no idea how to turn this idea rolling around in your mind into the real thing.  Or, maybe you have written it, but it is just hanging out saved as a file on your computer.  How can you turn it into a real book?  Is it possible that if you just wish it to come true like Geppetto wished for Pinocchio to be a real boy, it will happen?  

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that is highly unlikely.  You need to take a few steps to begin with.  The first of these is to decide whether or not you want to obtain a literary agent and have your manuscript submitted to commercial publishers with the hopes that one of them will make an offer on it or whether you want to self-publish your book.  Deciding which option is best for you can be tricky.  On the other hand, you may have no question in your mind.  Either way it is important to know just what the differences between commercial publishing and self-publishing are.  

When it comes to commercial publishing there are the Big Five (used to be the Big Six) publishing houses – some of which you may recognize.  The Hachett Book Group, HarperCollins, MacMillan Publishers Ltd., Simon and Schuster and in July 2013 Penguin and Random House merged to become Penguin Random House.  Are you salivating at the thought of being published by one of these highly respected and well-known names?  It is imperative that you understand that a commercial publishing house is a business first and foremost.  Their goal is turn a profit.  I am not saying that is good or bad.  It just is what it is.   

Let’s take a look at what a commercial publisher involves.  

  • Larger publishers only accept manuscripts submitted by literary agents they recognize.  Smaller publishers may not require a literary agent, but there are cons to this as the smaller publishers have less money and fewer resources typically.
  • Once a publisher buys the rights to your book, you no longer have much, if any, say in your book.  They choose the title, design the cover and their editors make recommendations for revisions, which they believe will help the book sell.
  • It takes 1-2 years after they agree to buy your book before it is released for sale.
  • You are responsible for the majority of the book’s promotion.  
  • You earn somewhere from 10-15% in royalties.  You may get an advance, but until that is recouped in royalties you will not receive further payment.

  

Perhaps, you have heard of subsidy publishers and are confused between the two.  

  • Subsidy publishers do not buy your manuscript.
  • You as the author have to pay the publication expenses whereas a commercial publisher covers those.
  • They still own the rights to your book like a commercial publisher.
  • You are paid for your work via royalties.  

What about considering self-publishing?  Is it harder?  It is worth it?  Can you afford it?  When you self-publish there are list of things you will have to take care of on your own.  You will either need to be an exceptional writer or have someone edit your book.  You will be responsible for designing the cover or hiring it out.  Then, there are the technical aspects such as setting up the correct margins, page numbers, font, chapter titles, table of contents and potentially and index.  These need to be ready to go before printing.  Oh, and don’t forget about obtaining an ISBN number, creating a website for your book, getting reviews, and more.  However, you maintain full control over your book.  If you want to make changes, you can do that fairly easily.  Since you still have full rights to your book, you can also create articles, workshops, audios, DVDs, etc. from your book.  And, yes, you earn 100% of the profits.     

Take a few moments and consider your audience.  Are they more apt to purchase online?  What type of book do they prefer – print version or digital?  Do they own a Kindle, Nook, iPad or another digital e-reader?  If they are likely to purchase online whether they order a print copy or a digital copy, you could very well consider using a print on demand service, like CreateSpace or only offering a digital version of your book.  

There are a variety of PODs (print on demand) companies out there.  CreateSpace just happens to be directly connected to Amazon; therefore, it makes it very easy to self-publish through them.  Ah, but what does print on demand mean?  It means the company is a digital publisher and only prints copies as they are ordered.  There is no upfront cost to you, the author.  However, most PODs offer extra services such as editing, marketing, and/or design.  CreateSpace also offers expanded distribution, which means if a book store, for example, would like to have your book in stock, they can order a certain number of copies at wholesale.  When it comes to your profits that will depend on the POD company.  The commission/royalty that you earn varies.   

This very brief overview of options has hopefully helped you better consider whether you want a commercial publisher or whether you want to self-publish.  If you are still unsure, at least now you have some more details to help you ask more questions as you weigh the pros and cons.  

Remember these key factors:

  • Where are your potential readers?  Online?  In a traditional bookstore?
  • How much work do you want to take on?  Editing, cover design, print setup, etc.?
  • Do you want to maintain control over the title, cover and contents? Retain your rights?
  • What is the time frame in which you want your book published?
  • How much money and time are you willing to invest in the publishing and promotion of your book?

No matter what you decide, sharing the book inside you that is dying to get out can be well worth your effort.  The world thrives on stories.  Share yours because someone somewhere is just waiting to read it!

Multi-Orgasmic Living

Click to get your copy!

Book Description:

Do you dream of having a more fulfilling sex life?
Do you wish you had more energy to help get you through the day?
Does the idea of having full body orgasms appeal to you?

Introducing The Ultimate Guide to a Multi-Orgasmic Life, a handbook for finding greater fulfillment- in and out of the bedroom.
The simple yet powerful techniques outlined in this book will help you tap into a potent energy- fueling your creativity, revitalizing you, enriching your day, and helping you get in the flow in dynamic ways. Did you know that both men and women can be multi-orgasmic and are capable of having full-body orgasms? The Ultimate Guide to a Multi-Orgasmic Life will guide you to living your greatest pleasure potential. Through completing the exercises in this book, you’ll discover that the rewards ripple out to enhance every area of your life. A multi-orgasmic life!

While sex is a natural and innate part of being human, few of us were raised with the freedom to express this important and natural part of ourselves. Deep down many of us experience a vast discrepancy between what we’re taught we should feel about sex and how we actually feel. Despite an intense sexual imagery reflected in our media and entertainment, mixed societal messages have created a divergence from our sexual nature and our freedom to express it.

Human beings are born ripe for pleasure. The body is a vehicle through which one can experience ecstatic states far greater than many may know or imagine. Tapping into this inherent part of ourselves has many benefits. By embracing your own potent sexual energy, you will not only experience sexual satisfaction, but other amazing benefits. Your creative juices will flow, and you’ll feel like a more vibrant version of yourself. It will radiate outward into all areas of your life because sexual energy is creative, joyful, and fulfilling. Embracing your innate sexual energy is an important component of living your highest life potential. 

Many of the practices outlined in the book are thousands of years old–tried and true methods experienced by many people over centuries, including teachings from the Tantric texts. The wisdom contained by these incredible texts offer ways of looking at and approaching our world to lead the most fulfilling and abundant lifestyle imaginable.
