Just read a brilliant article that made me think about how I write and what I write about and how is the best approach to deliver that message.
In the article Why Storytelling is the Utlimate Weapon by Jonathan Gottschall,
he concludes that “A story is a trick for sneaking a message into the fortified citadel of the human mind.”
Everyone loves a good story but it is the story filled with emotion and a premise that sucks people in, this is the story that will stick the best.
This article matches how good storytelling and good marketing go hand … Read More »

How does you set up a blog tour?
That is a question I asked myself a week ago. I have never done one before and even though I have seen other authors do them and in some case followed them from blog to blog, while others I simply stumbled upon as I visited my regular haunts.
