Siren of Paris at Words by Webb

Jodi Webb shares her review of The Siren of Paris, a historical novel of the French resistance during World War II, and her interview with author David LeRoy at Words by Webb — http://jodiwebb.com/news/review-and-5ws-the-sirens-of-paris/

Rich in historical detail and full of suspense, The Siren of Paris explores the journey of one American from medical student, to artist, to political prisoner at Buchenwald Concentration Camp during World War II.

Marc, a French born American student, never suspected that he would become trapped in German occupied France when he came to Paris in the summer of 1939 to study art. While smuggling a downed airman out of the American Hospital, through the Paris resistance underground, his life is plunged into total darkness when someone he trusts becomes a collaborator agent for the Gestapo. Marc then must fight to save his soul when he is banished to the “Fog and the Night” of Buchenwald, where he struggles with guilt over the consequences of having his trust betrayed.

Promotional Interview with Melissa M Williams

You have been invited to share your promotional experience with others.

Your Name: Melissa M. Williams

1. Where you are from and where are you now?

I am from Houston, Texas, and I lived in Dallas and Austin for about 5 years, but I just moved back to Houston 8 months ago.

2. How did you get started writing?

I have always loved to write and have writing since I was 8 years old.  During graduate school, I started taking lectures and creative writing workshops in my spare time.  My degrees are in psychology and professional counseling.  So, I have always wanted to write books with inspirational messages and psychological concepts.  I started in the children’s market first. 

3. What do you do when you are not writing?

Well, the past two years have been full of work.  I started a publishing company, LongTale Publishing and a literacy foundation, Read3Zero.  I definitely find ways to travel for work and pleasure.  I love experiencing new places.  It helps you see that your little way of living is NOT the only way to live.  I love running and yoga, but haven’t been doing it as much … I used to run marathons a few years ago, so I would train a lot!  I would like to get back into it again.  I love music, experiencing new things, and I enjoy spending time visiting friends and family.

4. What would readers like to know about you?

Iggy (the Iguana), the main character in my series, was my very first pet as a kid.  He was as long as I was tall … lived on top of my bookshelf, was potty trained, and could sit up on his hind legs.  Actually, all of the crazy animal characters in my books were pets of mine while growing up.  Horned toads, water dragons, turtles, iguanas, etc.  I always liked strange things, I guess you could say. 

5. What inspired your first book?

My pet Iggy!!  I have been writing about him and making up the voice for a cartoon series since I was eight years old.  I had a big imagination as a kid too.  One of my very first jobs was being a voice over actress for Japanese cartoons.

6. How many books have you written?

Two and working on the third.

7. What are the titles of your books and what genres are they?

Iggy the Iguana Juvenile Fiction (Ages 7-11)

Summer League (The Iggy Sequel) Juvenile Fiction (Ages 7-11)

Turtle Town (currently writing)

All of the books are Middle Grade Readers (Chapter books)

8. Why are you specially qualified to write about this topic?

I have lived the experiences, surrounded myself with my audience, and made sure my books got the seal of approval from many kids and teachers before they went to print.  The readers’ opinions are very important to me.  These books are more for them as opposed to big name reviewers.  Also, I try to experience everything my characters go through.  I substituted for elementary as research for the first book … studied all aspects of baseball for Summer League, and currently, I have been visiting California, researching the turtle society, and learning how to surf for Turtle Town.  San Diego is the location for the next book.  I’ve been interviewing surfer dudes too!

9. How do you manage to keep yourself focused and on track when you’re writing a book?

That’s hard when being an author also means you must be a marketer too … not to mention a public speaker.  I have to take time out and go away and get out of the business life of being an entrepreneur.  Sometimes that literally means going away to another state and other times it means changing my surroundings and mindset a bit.  You can write anywhere, but sometimes certain spots inspire us more than others.  I actually wrote most of my last book in a cabin in Taos, New Mexico.

Time management and planning has always been very helpful to me too.  When I start writing a book, I have to stay persistent, so I write it into my schedule, but I also allow for the creative flow to take me away, and I write when ever the ideas come.  Jotting down notes is a constant for me.  I usually get great ideas when I’m running or driving for a long time.  Two really bad times to write notes down, I know … I’ve tried the voice recorders too.

10. Do you write to make money, for the love of writing or both?

Definitely both.  I have turned this into my career, and I’ve got to live so I can do what I love to do … write!

12. What are some unique methods of marketing you have used? Which were the most successful?

Word of mouth and connections you make with people along the way are #1 in this business!  You become the brand, so you have to market yourself by being in the public.  All authors must stand for something so they stand out.

I have done everything with my marketing team, from online social networking like Facebook and Twitter, press releases, newsletters, Events Events Events, you must get out there in person.  I do radio shows online and locally, I have been on the news and had articles written in papers, and I am a children’s columnist for an online paper in Houston.  Everything you do is marketing.  I haven’t even mentioned flyers, handouts, postcards, mailers, press kits, etc.  It always helps to have professionals guide you in the beginning, because good advice can go a long way and save time from making mistakes most new authors make.

13. Do you sell through a website? If so, what’s the address? If not, why not?

Yes, I sell through http://www.IggytheIguana.com.

14. Where can people order your books?

Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Target.com, and http://www.IggytheIguana.com.

15. What format are your books – e-book, print, audio etc?

Print and Audio.  (I did all the voices for my audio book … it was so much fun to be back in the studio!)

16. Will you write more books?

Yes, forever!

17. What do you have in the works now?

Turtle Town, which is a spin off series of Iggy the Iguana.  And I am publishing a short story anthology of stories written by kids for kids too.

18. What does the future hold for you and your books?

I hope and pray movies, cartoons or learning computer games.  I think the Iggy characters are so cute and memorable, so I am just waiting to sell the license when the time is right.  I want to use them as symbols of diversity and acceptance for all children.  I would also like to grow as an author and business, so eventually, I would love for everyone to receive the positive energy the Iggy Series has to offer to the world.  I plan to write more books with inspirational and spiritual messages and use my counseling experience to reach other audiences.  Honestly, I am up for anything in this business.  I secretly want to be the voice of a Disney Cartoon.  


19. What was the most successful thing you did to promote your books?

I got really involved with schools and teachers.  Word of mouth and recommendations are your best friend in the children’s market.  I prepared ahead of time by becoming a substitute teacher as a part time job.  I also got involved with organizations like the Texas Library Association and did signings at their events and collected email addresses for my newsletters from all of my events.  Go where you know your target audience will be!

20. What was the least successful thing you did to promote your books?

Mailed books and info to schools.  I’m not saying don’t send out information … it has to be done, but it is costly for a low response rate.  They want to see you in person first or hear about you from another librarian or teacher.

22. What makes this book special to you?

I’ve been wanting to write it for the past 20 years.  It is very dear to my heart, as my pet Iggy was a best friend to me as a child.

23. What sort of comments have you gotten about the content of the book?

Kids really relate to what the characters go through in their elementary years.  Parents tell me that even their children who don’t like to read can’t put it down.  I think they like Snap, the wannabe surfer box shell turtle “dude.”  All of the characters have very unique personalities.  Parents and teachers really appreciate the theme of acceptance and not judging others on the outside, which is the underlying foundation of all of the stories I write.


24. What makes this a book that other people MUST read and WHY?

Kids are learning at a really young age how to judge others.  It’s really sad, because it gets worse and worse and creates all ranges of bullying.  We can’t forget that everyone has feelings.  Understanding the value of acceptance, even into adulthood can go a long way.  When we don’t accept others, we cut off a lot of our own lives.  We become self conscious to try new things.  Fear can be depilating, so exercising an open mind can cure a lot of those problems.  

25. What people NEED to read this book and WHY?

This is a great book for everyone.  I have parents reading it to their little kids, elementary students reading it over and over again, counselors and teachers reading it to their students, book clubs reading it as a group, and adults who love animals and a positive story reading it as well.  Its a great series for boys and girls, young and young at heart!

26. What sparks your creativity? Any tips to help others spark their own
creativity?

Well, I believe there is no such thing as writer’s block.  It’s just an excuse.  Get out of your regular every day routine.  Go on an “Artist Date” as Julia Cameron would say, the author of the Artist’s Way.  We become stagnate in mind and body when we get comfortable and do not allow for new experiences, so get out there and the ideas will come.  Walking and workout helps too, at least for me.  OR go take a writing class, even if you don’t learn anything, your ideas will start to spark again.

27. What do you think motivates people to become authors? What motivated you to get into this unusual industry?

Everyone has a story in them.  Some want to tell it, others wish they could tell it, and then others have to tell it.  The ones who have to, who follow their intuition, are the ones who become authors.  I was motivated to get into this “unusual” industry because its unusual.  I’m not a 9 to 5 kind a gal.  I like to move to the beat of my own drum.  Sometimes that means putting in 80 hours a week instead of 40, but at least I was the one who told myself I had to and no one else.  I never saw myself in an ordinary career.  God didn’t want that for me, so I listened.

28. Tell me about the most unusual things you have done to promote any books?

I have done book signings at Kroger grocery stores, craft shows, fast food restaurants, little league games, etc.  It definitely gets attention to be in a place where books and authors aren’t always expected.

29. If a potential reader thinks that your book wouldn’t interest them, what would you say to convince them to buy? I’m thinking something better than “Its the greatest book ever.” Give me something more specific 🙂

If I were trying to get a child with their parent to buy my book who wasn’t interested, I would ask them if they had any pets.  Next I say, “Well do you want to see a picture of the my real pet, Iggy, in the back of my book?”  They always say, yes.  Next, I would ask questions, like, “what grade are you in, do you like sports, have you ever started a new school?” to see what parts of the book would interest them the most, then I would talk about that aspect of the story.  You have  to know your reader to give them what they are looking for.

30. Why does the topic of your book interest you? Why would it interest potential readers? Give us a hook to reel in new readers.

You learn things about life and interests of the world in this children’s series.  I get to learn knew things and become more open minded through every book I write.  Do you know how many miles are in a marathon, or what hitting the wall means, or why little boys shouldn’t through curve balls, where the “running of the bulls festival” takes place, what time of the day surfers can get the best waves, or how surfers don’t slip off their boards?  Well, you’ll get all of the answers by reading the Iggy the Iguana Series!

Promotional Interview with Christy Strauch

Christy Strauch

1. Where you are from and where are you now?

I’m a desert girl with a California streak. I was born and raised in Arizona, spent some time in Los Angeles, and currently live in Phoenix, while saving money to buy a summer home (tent? campsite? apartment?) in the Bay Area.
2. How did you get started writing?

I’ve been writing all my life, but not consistently. I used to think that inspiration had to strike before I could sit down and write. About ten years ago I came across a quote attributed to Oliver Stone: “The simple formula for a finished manuscript is Ass+Chair.” I applied his formula and found that he was right. One published book, a second one almost finished, and a third one in the planning stages, resulted from taking this advice.

3. What do you do when you are not writing?

I am a business coach. I help solo entrepreneurs create successful businesses doing the work they love.
4. What would readers like to know about you?

I love movies, hiking, National Parks, the West; I got an MBA from UCLA which gave me the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval but wasn’t much help in running a small business, and I’m learning to play the ukulele.

5. What inspired your first book?

I attended a business plan workshop in 2005. We used a book to help us write our plans, but I was frustrated with it because it was too complex. I started leading business plan workshops myself and created a 20-page handout to help people in the workshops. With lots of assistance and feedback from the business owners who attended my workshops, the handout grew into this 300-page book.
6. How many books have you written?

I finished two novels (three, if you count the fact that I wrote one of them in third person, then re-wrote the whole thing in first person), that will never see daylight, plus the book that was just published and the next two in the works.

7. What are the titles of your books and what genres are they?

My book is entitled Passion, Plan, Profit: 12 Simple Steps to Convert Your Passion into a Solid Business. It is non-fiction, in the small business category.
8. Why are you specially qualified to write about this topic?

I’ve owned my own businesses for twenty years, and made pretty much every good and bad move you can make. I’m honest, especially about my mistakes, which puts people at ease, and lets them know that if I can run a successful business, they can too.

9. How do you manage to keep yourself focused and on track when you’re writing a book?

I’m lucky, in that I enjoy writing, so I don’t have to work very hard to stay on track (so far). I’d like to be able to spend more time writing than I already do. That said, I still do some things that keep me focused, as follows.

I use a trick I learned from a book called The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. He gathers some talismans around himself when he writes. He uses a small cannon and some other reminders; I place my lucky (small, painted wooden) crab at the top of my laptop to remind me that I’m in my writing time.

I let my mind wander if I get stuck. I keep my crab perched on my laptop, but I let myself read the newspaper or read some of my favorite blogs to occupy myself while my unconscious works on whatever problem I’m wrestling with. In this way I keep working on the writing, even if I’m not actually writing something every minute.

I schedule specific writing time in my calendar every week, and guard it with my life.

Finally, I try to make it easy on myself to start back up after I’ve stopped the previous day. I make notes about my thought process and mark the place I stopped so I know where to pick up. This is called building a bridge between yesterday’s and today’s writing.

Finally, I have a coach. I shouldn’t put her last, because she is one of the primary ways I stay focused. I commit to giving her a certain number of pages per week, and I pay her to help me stick to my commitments, read my writing and give me feedback, as well as to talk me out of the slumps that every author experiences.

10. Do you write to make money, for the love of writing or both?

I write for both reasons. The internet gives authors (especially ones of non-fiction, but novel-writers too), a powerful, unseen-in-the history-of-humankind, way to reach our audiences. I wrote my first book to reach solo entrepreneurs, so I hope to change their lives with this book while it makes money to support the writing of subsequent books.
12. What are some unique methods of marketing you have used? Which were the most successful?

I’ve put up an author site on Amazon, I am blogging and am about to embark on a blog tour; I lead face-to-face and tele-seminars to take people through the book; have been interviewed on numerous internet radio stations, am sending out a monthly newsletter, and occasionally post on Twitter

So far, I’ve been most successful in selling my books when I am face-to-face with solo entrepreneurs. There are so many business plan books on the shelves that people feel both overwhelmed by the sheer number, and a bit cynical about the utility of doing a business plan. When people hear me talk about the book and why doing a business plan using the book is both a great idea and FUN, they catch my enthusiasm and buy the book.
13. Do you sell through a website? If so, what’s the address? If not, why not?

I sell my books on Amazon: www.amazon.com

14. Where can people order your books?

They can order them from Amazon. Go to www.amazon.com and type Passion Plan Profit into the search box. My book comes right up!

15. What format are your books – e-book, print, audio etc?

Because it is a workbook and people need to write in it, it is currently a print edition only.

16. Will you write more books?

I am in the process of doing that right now.

17. What do you have in the works now?

Two books: You Hate to Market and What to do about It, and another book about how to build a community for your customers around your business.

18. What does the future hold for you and your books?

I hope to become more Internet-marketing savvy with each book, successfully reaching a wider audience. I also hope to build a community of solo entrepreneurs around my books. My dream is to provide a forum for my readers to find each other and do their work together, posting their results on my website, and giving me feedback to improve subsequent editions of the books.

19. What was the most successful thing you did to promote your books?

It’s early in the process, so a bit difficult to tell what will actually be most successful. Right now, I’m most successful in selling the books in person.

20. What was the least successful thing you did to promote your books?

Since it’s so early in the process, I don’t want to brand anything I’ve done so far as “not successful.” It takes time to build momentum to sell a book, especially a non-fiction work by an unknown author like me.

Even though I can’t yet link selling copies of the book to the radio interviews I’ve done, or to the blogs postings I’ve written, or to other internet-based activities, I’m working to create an internet presence that becomes larger and more compelling over time, which will, I hope, drive more and more book sales.
22. What makes this book special to you?

It’s special to me for numerous reasons. It’s the first book I wrote that actually got published. It gives me the opportunity to explain business terms in a way that would have been very helpful to me in my earlier, floundering days as a business owner, (so I am, I hope, lowering the floundering time for other business owners). It can reach far more people than I ever could personally. And it represents a completed goal for me: I finished a book that is helpful to people.
23. What sort of comments have you gotten about the content of the book?

The comments all center around one theme: “You explain things so clearly!”

24. What makes this a book that other people MUST read and WHY?

The one factor that derails many business owners is not the quality of their work; it’s the inability to handle the business side of the business. This book explains the concepts that all business owners need to understand so that the business side of their businesses work.

Owning and running a successful business boils down to three things: doing excellent work, paying attention to the business side of things, and responding to change. This book helps business owners keep abreast of these three factors.

25. What people NEED to read this book and WHY?

One of the most daunting actions anyone can ever take is to start a business doing work you love. In the back of your mind, this question keeps repeating itself: what if I fail? Or worse, what if you already have failed, and don’t want to try again? You need to read this book so you can increase the odds of succeeding, doing this very important work that you love.
26. What sparks your creativity? Any tips to help others spark their own creativity?

Four things spark my creativity: working with business owners on their own businesses, reading, writing, and down time.

Working with other business owners (who are my perfect audience for my books) keeps me in touch with what’s important to them, so that I can incorporate those things into my subsequent books. Reading brings me in contact with good business ideas, especially from large corporations, that I can translate into useful concepts for small business owners. Writing itself creates more creativity, ironically. Finally, down time (which is the hardest to do) gives my unconscious a chance to work on new ideas, undisturbed.

Julia Cameron wrote a brilliant book about nurturing creativity, called The Artist Way. She gives her readers great ideas about how to incorporate down time into their lives.

27. What do you think motivates people to become authors? What motivated you to get into this unusual industry?

The conventional wisdom says that you can’t make money writing a book. None of us authors ever believes that about our own books, but statistics show this statement to be true.

So why do I write? Three reasons: two practical, and one not. This book and the ones in the works extend my reach; they can touch people I don’t even know about. That’s the first practical reason. The second one is that the book forms the foundation of my coaching practice. I now have a teaching tool that I can use, whether with individual clients or with groups.

The impractical reason is that I wanted to see if I could do it. I found out I could.
28. Tell me about the most unusual things you have done to promote any books?

I’ve thought about streaking through a bookstore, but my publicist discouraged this. So I’m doing more conventional marketing: blogging, setting up an author page on Amazon, posting on Twitter, doing an email newsletter, a blog tour, interviews on radio shows, and hosting business plan workshops in person and on the phone. If streaking becomes the new way to promote books, I’ll have another discussion with my publicist.
29. If a potential reader thinks that your book wouldn’t interest them, what would you say to convince them to buy? I’m thinking something better than “It’s the greatest book ever.” Give me something more specific 🙂
Even though I’d like to sell this book to everyone; it isn’t for everyone. It’s strictly for people who want to create successful businesses doing the work they love. I would say to this group: if you’re longing to have a business doing the work you love, but you’ve either already tried and failed, or are afraid to try at all, this is your book.

30. Why does the topic of your book interest you? Why would it interest potential readers? Give us a hook to reel in new readers.

I know what it’s like to do work that didn’t use my best skills, or fulfill my purpose in life. It was painful. This book is for anyone experiencing that pain; it’s written to help people create a business doing the work that they love, that they were destined to do. This book gives people who love their work the tools to create a successful business around it. If you’re in pain, this is your prescription.
