Book promotion is 90% of getting your book published and sold. Writing the book represents only 10% of the work.
Book signing engagements and author publicity are usually left to the author.
You can hear my live Interview on Blog Talk Radio. It was a lot of fun. Hope you'll listen. If you're writing and wish more publicity, being interviewed provides a superb opportunity.
Here in the Media Room is where you will find information about each of my books, plus my upcoming novels and nonfiction.

A Tip: I prefer not to be behind a podium and will not use one again. I like to get right up into the crowd, pass out flyers and things, and generally interact with the crowd. It helps the audience feel a part of it all.
If I am reading a passage from one of my books, then I might sit, but very close to the group.

A Sara Mason Mystery
River Bones, a thriller, has won a couple of significant awards.
The Synopsis: A woman's long search for her abducted child leads to a young woman on Death Row facing lethal injection for a crime she didn't commit.
The story takes place in my childhood hometown area of the Sacramento River Delta in California. Follow the leads to all the River Bones pages and read the exciting news about the competition and reviews.
Through the portals listed below, read about my first novel, The Tropics, which was fictionalized from some of my own near-death escapades in the Caribbean and the Hawaiian Islands. This book went out of print and has been rewritten. It's exciting reading! Book signing photos included.
Down to the Needle, is another thriller and was released wto brisk sales. It was actually written before River Bones.
And then, I have already conjured other sequels to River Bones. The next story will take place in Hawaii and either San Francisco or Borneo. Yes, Borneo. Sara Mason gets around! The plot is totally ready to write from my mind, but I must finish the first sequel first and settle for making notes only on the next sequel. Wow.
Book promotion is now underway for my eBooks. Write it Right - Tips for Authors, Volume I and Volume II, and Legacy of the Tropics, and The Howling Cliffs, the 1st sequel to River Bones. Legacy is the complete rewrite, expansion and dramatization of my first novel, The Tropics.
Additionally - whew! - I've published a collection of zany short stories and flash fiction titled Off Center in the Attic - Over the Top Stories.
These eBooks have been published. Now, book promotion demands we make time for it.
You can watch video trailers for all my books in the Video Theatre. Video trailers not only provide enticing knowledge of the story plots, they are also fun to watch.
If anyone has any idea how to add several more hours to my days so I can complete more writing in a timely manner, please let me know.
Book promotion and author publicity take most of my time right now. I barely have time to schedule additional book signings, but somehow always manage to do a few here and there.
