Hot off the press from my publicist: “Congratulations on receiving the honor of Finalist of Self-Help: Relationships for Erotic Integrity in the 2016 USA Best Book Awards! This is a well deserved honor.”
Readers’ Favorite Book Awards granted me HONORABLE MENTION for Erotic Integrity.
From TEDx to Learning to Wear Makeup
The thing about writing a book is that you then have to market it. Once the teeth gnashing, hand wringing, and hours spent in the chair typing are over, you have to tell the world about your book.
I, like many authors no doubt, had no idea what that would entail. Erotic Integrity is my first book. (…)
As I was toying with the idea, a friend of mine told me: “You can write a book in three months if you really set your mind to it”. Well, I’ve long half joked that I have commitment issues, but not in the usual sense: when I commit, I do it! Three months in, I was barely figuring out that a chapter has to have a consistent structure, a book has to have an arc, that showing rather than telling is more effective, and that I needed more than just case studies or stories from my practice. So I forged ahead…for eighteen months, five days a week. I learned a lot along the way, and still am having my eyes opened to the very busy world of being an author.
My fifth award!! I’m honored and excited to be a “Finalist” in the “Self-Help: Relationships” category of the 2016 International Book Awards. Yayy!!
