Too Quiet 

I will admit it!

 I’ve been a little to quiet lately.   Due to my husband’s health issues finding time to write about anything has been difficult for me.  I love writing!  

Why am I feeling like a failure right now?  I feel like I am letting my readers down and all the wonderful members and expert authors of the  Power Affilate Club as well.


I  am reminding myself that I need to breathe.

I can only find solutions for the problems that arise which I know how to solve.

I am learning to be quiet in the midst of this storm and listen to my spirit being.

Sometimes finding the right article to right about comes easily.  During the fog a light needs to show the way home.

My promise to YOU 

I will stay strong!

I will still read your blogs and reciprocate. 

I will try to write often as I can.

Thank you for reading.

What I Learned From Toni Nelson 

Yesterday November 5, 2016 I had the pleasure and opportunity to be interviewed by Toni Nelson.   Build Authority Coach, Writer, Author, Speaker, Award winning Videographer/Photographer.  


After she approached me about being interviewed I had to say yes.  A chance to get one talking about my newly published book, Terror In The North Tower wasn’t going to be turned down.  

I expected Toni to offer insights as to marketing, improvements I could make with my marketing strategy and that she did plus more.

Topics Discussed 

The main reason for writing the book, marketing strategies, self published verses traditional publishing ,  challenges and staying focused.

Toni made me feel at ease.  It was as if  I was sitting in her kitchen having coffee and just chatting away.  Before I knew it thirty minutes has gone by and we were saying our thank you’s and good byes.

What I Will Remember

I will remember most the conversation that took place after the recording. Her insight on how to improve the website for my book  Author Alicia Osmera. 

Oh if you don’t know the book is called Terror In The North Tower.

 
Suggestions for holding book signings, speaking engagements, and sale, sale, SALE!

Using The Interview

I know what your thinking.  Where is the interview and can I hear it?  Soon it will be released in I Tunes and I will let all my readers know just as soon as I have a release date.

I have already started to implement some of the suggestions from Toni and I can’t wait to see how the rest will play out.

As always I welcome your comments.

Have You Published A Book

If you are an avid reader of my blog then you already know that I wrote a book.  

Terror In The North Tower came from my background as a respiratory therapist.  This is a suspenseful fictional thriller with more twist than Grey’s Anatomy . 
The Challenge To Edit And Publish

After much searching, phone calls and email I was starting to realize publishing wasn’t going to be so easy.  Through the Power Affiliate Club I met Monna Ellithorpe.  Known as The Blue Jean Writer, she helps other author’s edit and publish wonderful works of words.

Once she was done with editing and I approved it we set out sites on self publishing through Amazon.

Purchase Terror In The North Tower here.

Publishing hasn’t come without it’s challenges. 

1. Marketing – self marketing is hard work .  Researching places that may or may not put your book in their businesses . 

2. Social Media – getting the word out on social media is a time saber and huge benefit.  According to Search engine land

Social media marketing refers to the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites.

 The Hubspot shows marketing statistics
