Journaling, Memoir, Fiction, History and Promotion for YOUR Book
Those of you who drop by regularly or subscribe to this blog know that one of the reasons I'm a shamesless promoter is that I know my resources can be your resources, too.
So, this blog is dedicated to Paul Bruno, The History Czar. He recently interviewed me for his show. We talked about my family history and how it inspired my multi award-winning novel, This Is the Place.
Listen to the interview at http://www.careerczar.com/mp3/career030510.mp3 .
And here's the benefit to you (other than the brilliant interview, of course!). Contact Paul if you can find a history slant in your own book! He's at PaulBruno@cs.com and he and his producer are tons of fun to work with. You'll see what I mean when you listen to the podcast. (-:
