What a fantastic Holiday Season I am experiencing! The sudden and dramatic acceptance of the latest Hanshi Warrior Press title, The Lady of the Rings - Musashi’s Book of Five Rings Interpreted for Women’s Empowerment is a pleasure to behold. I knew the work would get a good reception based on my past track record, but I was totally unprepared for the attention the book is receiving along with the spate of orders coming through my website and that of the publisher, Worthy Shorts Press. ISBN 978-1-935340-53-5, 120 pgs, paper, $12.95. I have already been approached by foreign rights agents, and I have to make sure I don’t get caught up in my own importance but to stay focused on the work which is always more important than the worker. I will be more than happy to help with what I know about the business and some of the methods I employ to get the attention required including the sending of notices to retailers, making phone calls to establish signing events, other marketing tips, etc.
