Book Fairs Work
Wonderful success for Belinda T and her book Experiencing Grace. We took her book to Frankfurt book fair and one of our partner companies loved it so much they did this interview.
Here is a report from the Beijing book fair from one of our authors, and our partner company ContentoNow, who we introduced the book to.
Corridors a Verse Memoir
A great night was had by all at the book launch or Corridors a memoir in verse.
The book was launched by the British assistant High Commissioner Tony Brennan.
Tony even commented that this book is also a historical account of the war years in London; seen through the eyes of a child, something that has not been done before. It is a wonderful record of those times and is a must read for all people interested in that time period.
About the book
In this memoir a woman now in her eighties looks back to a childhood and adolescence lived in the turbulent context of England in the 1930’s and 1940’s. It is a young girl’s story of finding her own way through the complex choices and changes that occur, and in this is also a deeper perspective of social history, all conveyed in the unique literary voice of poetry.
The Son will Rise
Danielle’s (Danielle Hircock) book launch went wonderfully on last Saturday, with a good turnout and a lot of enthusiasm for my book. Here are some pictures of those who attended, including former Legacy (Sydney Branch) President, Legatee, Eric Easterbrook and his wife, Sally; Stewart and Joan Thompson of A Troop, Richmond/Windsor in full military uniform; members of Penrith RSL Club Sub-Branch, many family and friends.
Working for Ben Chifley book
Dr. Irina Webster
Dr Irina Webster is a medical doctor, intuitive healer and author of 5 published books. Two of her books have recently become Amazon best-sellers in major categories after only a few days of being listed on Amazon.
Irina came to Australia in 2001 from Russia with no English. She learned the language while in Australia. Now she is a bestselling author of books in English and is going on her National Tour of Australia in 2016 (you can meet her when she is in your city).
Irina’s publishing story:
In 2006 she wrote her first book about eating disorders when she was still working at the Canberra Hospital as a doctor. She wrote this book under a pseudonym because she didn’t want to be identified by her colleagues to avoid criticism. Initially, she published this book on the internet as an e-book.
Within first 12 month this eBook replaced her salary as a doctor at the hospital. Then, she quit her daily job and continued to write and publish other books, CDs and programs related to the topics of healing, intuition and health. Her business grew. Her books got translated into different languages and published in different countries by different publishers.
This year in October, an influential publisher in Europe (Contento) used her story as a successful book example in his on stage speech at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015. The CEO of Contento, Nethanel Semrik, presented this speech 3 times during the fair and used her example every time. His presentation has been broadcasted to many TV and radio channels in Europe and heard by thousands of people.
You can watch the Nethanel presentations about Dr Irina Webster here.
Also you can see the photos from these events.
The CEO of Contento, Nethanel Semrik, presented his speech 3 times during the fair and used Dr Irina Webster example of how to make your book sell.
This example is something all authors can do, but you have to work on it constantly to get noticed. Nowadays it is important to get in front of as many people as possible and your book onto as many selling platforms as you can. Just being on Amazon is good, but your book will be lost in the millions of other books if this is all you do.
What did Irina do to make her books sell :
- Social Media engagement (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter etc. )
- Doing workshops, seminars and presentations regularly.
- Attending International Book Fairs regularly and actively promoting her books there
- National Tour of Australia
As a Best-Selling author in her genre she is now going on a National Tour of Australia to promote her work. She will be doing her Intuitive Healing workshops in every capital city of Australia. You can meet Irina and personally talk to her when she is in your city. You can read more about her Intuitive Healing Tour here. http://dririnawebster.com/intuitive-healing-workshop/
