How to Support an Author’s New Book: 11 Ideas For You

Good ideas to keep in mind to help support each other!

Writers In The Storm Blog

By Chuck Sambuchino

large_5595133805My Writer’s Digest coworker, Brian A. Klems, recently geared up for the release of his first book — a humorous guide for fathers called OH BOY, YOU’RE HAVING A GIRL: A DAD’S SURVIVAL GUIDE TO RAISING DAUGHTERS (Adams Media). On top of that, my coworker Robert Brewer (editor of Writer’s Market) recently got a publishing deal for a book of his poetry.

So I find myself as a cheerleader for my writing buddies — trying to do what I can to help as their 2013 release dates approach. I help in two ways: 1) I use my own experience of writing & publishing books to share advice on what they can expect and plan for; and 2) I simply do whatever little things I can that help in any way.

PAST LOVE

Sharing a poem to spark your creativity. Keep writing!

Spoken Word Poetry, Art & Haiku in fun mini series...New York City.

love

A love lost,
Drifted in the past,
Reflections becomes lust,
Once gone but now has come back,
Trapped by the good times,

So hard to move on,
Want to try once more,
But on which day and how long?
I see her in passing,
She still has that special while,
Walked the same route,
Hoping to she her again,
Rather than once in a while,
I smile at her in passing,
Wanting to express how I am feeling,
But I can’t rescue the past,
My body needs some spiritual healing.

Five Posts to Write Right Now

The Daily Post

1. What does Utopia look like to you?

Every single day around the world, there are protests, elections, and burgeoning grassroots campaigns all resulting in a step forward, or a step backward, depending on who you ask. Many people devote their lives towards creating a better life for their children and grandchildren, letting their vision of the future guide their present.

Yet everyone’s vision of the world they’d like their children, metaphorical or not, to inherit is very different. What type of world do you strive to create in your day-to-day life? What actions can we take to improve the lives of others? What’s a cause that’s important to you? Tell…
