SEEN This Week 11/18/13



This week’s book, author, and event news:

DE Navarro has finished his second book of poetry, Dare to Soar. Read more details on the press release located at this link.

It’s a Waking Up His Wife showdown between Kristal McKerrington and Joe E Legend, so cast your vote on which is the best book by grabbing a copy at this link for Joe or here for Kristal.

Joe E Hitchen will also be featured on the cover of an upcoming Men’s Health issue with an article included.

Mindy Milone Haig’s new book Hidden in the Pages will be released this Friday, November 22. In celebration of the new release, she is offering her first book The Wishing Place for just $0.99! Check out The Wishing Place on Amazon.

Russell Cruse has written a great post on the topic of homophobia which is a must read.

What is going to prison really like? featured a story on prison life, which is nothing like we see on television.

Martin Nicholson is hoping to write a series of illustrated guides to grave hunting. He’ll include examples of graves with a memorable “back story” but will also include graves where the masons made engraving mistakes. The latter are hard to find but great fun when we do. Died attacking a Russian naval base in 1919 is one example of good things to come.

Do you find that the articles that are available on the internet on self-publishing all say the same? So does Pedro Barrento and decided to do something about it. Check out Part Two of Unorthodox Advice to Promoting Your Self-published Book.

My News For the Week:

Thanks to Danielle Zwissler for mentioning my review of her book A Barefoot Christmas on the November 11 broadcast of her Spreaker Radio show The Lost and Found.

I’d also like to thank Andrea Amador for having me on her BlogTalkRadio show The Juicy Woman November 13. We had a great time and covered a few interesting topics. If you missed the live show, go here to listen to a on-demand rebroadcast.

Mike Siciliano, host of Spreaker Radio’s The Mike Siciliano Show and former wrestling columnist, is scheduled to appear on The L. Anne Carrington Show’s November 20 episode. Mike is an old friend and colleague and I’m looking forward to having him on the show.

Just a note that there will be no SEEN This Week columns or Book of the Week features for November 25 or December 2 due to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and other commitments. New features will resume Monday, December 9. Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving, and for our Jewish friends, a happy Hanukkah.
