Cancer: From Tears to Triumph Goes International Besteller

Book Cover - Cancer: From Tears to TriumphAs a co-author on the #1 International Bestseller “Cancer: From Tears to Triumph”

I am extremely excited to announce that the book, which was released on September 3rd 2015, has hit #1 Bestseller in Canada, Australia and the United States, in the first week, making me a #1 International Bestseller co-author!!

JW NajarianHello, I am JW Najarian and I am the founder and am the Editor and Chief of On Purpose Magazine. Yes, the magazine you are reading right now. I was offered the opportunity to write one of the chapters (chapter 8, Seeing Cancer As a Gift) by the main author Viki Winterton who I met via Rick Frishman co-founder of New York’s Morgan James Publishing.

Rick FrishmanRick has a couple of events every year called Author 101 University. Rick invites some of the most prominent and most diverse lineup of people in the publishing industry to help new and seasoned authors a way to get in front of the industry leaders and find out more about new ways of publishing and promoting their books. It is a great conference and I HIGHLY recommend any author or writer go to this event.

Anyway, I met Viki from Expert Insights and when she found out that I have stage 4 prostrate carcinoma, she kindly offered me a chapter to write in the book.

I was so happy as I know through Rick, that Viki has had a few number one books and I knew this was a chance to tell my story and that by getting in this potential bestseller I could reach a larger audience and hopefully help others with cancer handle this tough journey.

This book is full of stories from patients, survivors, health care professionals and family members of patients and the departed. It is the inspirational book on cancer that all patients, and their loved ones need to read to get through the rough times. Remember the family and friends of a patient go through much of the same pain, depression, anxiety and fear that the patient does. Not in the same way, but sometimes just as bad. I know of a couple of professionals that have lost patients they had gotten to know as very close friends and so even the professionals feel the pain and we all need hope. Cancer: From Tears to Triumph, gives that hope and so much more.  For more info watch the video above.

When you finish your last radiation treatment at USC Norris Cancer Center you get to ring this bell. It seems silly, but you are so glad it is over that this bell can really choke you up.

I had found that even thought the treatments, the pain, the side effects from the drugs, the knowing your may only have a short time with your loved ones an having to tell people like your mother that you have a terminal disease is just no picnic, but that with the right attitude you can find blessings and gratitude in so many things and I really wanted to share that with others.

IMG_0088

My cancer had moved from my prostate into the bone and I had some tumors boring into my spine. I had to have spine surgery to address the tumors and this is me with USC P.T. staff learning to walk correctly. I didn’t know I had it wrong all these years… 🙂

So many patients fall apart and it is hard not to have your pity party and why me days. In fact I would agree that someone in that position has every right to feel depressed, angry and just plain bad about bad news, but I have also found that in doing so, the patient puts themselves in a terrible place that if hard to get out of. I believe what you focus on expands and focusing on all the crap that comes with a terminal disease can kill you faster and harder that the disease itself.

If you have cancer or know of someone that does, you need to get this book for yourself or your friend or family member. The only positive way through the storm is with hope and inspiration and this book is full of stories by survivors and others like myself.

Here is the official press release:

I got a call the other day from my great friend and mentor Gary W. Goldtein. Gary was extremely excited about a talk he is about to give in Redwood City.

Now Gary gets to speak at many events and lately he has really cut back on speaking since Gary is very busy with his consulting business.

Anyway, when Gary gets excited I listen. He went on to explain who he was speaking with and about what they were doing together.

I understood immediately why he was so excited. He would be speaking with two extreme consultants in business about a new program they would provide this next year called Innerfluence which is a one year, very intimate coaching program for a very small and unique set of business people.- JW

Mike Walker Guru of Gossip – Out For Blood

Mike Walker Columnist and Bestselling AuthorOkay calm down, Mike Walker legendary National Enquirer Chief Editor and NY Times Bestselling Author is not out for blood, but that is the name of his new book.

#1 NYT BESTSELLER & NATIONAL ENQUIRER LEGEND GIVES TABLOIDS SOME BITE – LITERALLY – THIS HALLOWEEN

Mike Walker’s Out For Blood,
from the publishers of 50 Shades of Grey

You may know Mike Walker from his weekly appearances on the Howard Stern Show or you may know him from the National Enquirer, but Mike is also a two time, New York Times Bestseller for his reality books on O.J. Simpson and Nichole Brown-Simpson.

Well Mike is at it again, but this time Mike is using his skills as an acclaimed storyteller to write his first piece of exciting fiction.

Although I love to help others and do so by being positive and keeping myself aligned with positive people and things, I have to admit that one of my guilty pleasures has been listening to Howard Stern. I don’t want to debate anyone about whether listening to Howard is good or bad, but I have enjoyed listening to him for years.

Why bring up Howard? Well that is where I was first introduced to Mike Walker. He used to come on the show every week to play the Mike Walker Gossip Game. Mike would put out three or four Hollywood gossip stories and Howard, Robin and the crew would guess which one was false. I love this game as so many times the audience (me) and Howard and his guests, would pick true stories as the false one proving truth is often stranger than fiction.

Hearing Mike over the years changed my feelings about the stories in the Enquirer. There are other mags or what I cal rags that taught stars having baby aliens as children and so forth, but the Enquirer seems to be much tougher about the stories they produce and getting the facts straight.

I ask Mike about his past as a journalist before he became a gossip writer. We talk about the Mike Walker Game and his past books and we talk about his new book and what made Mike decide to write fiction. We also talk about being a NY Times Bestseller and what it takes.

One of Mike’s greatest talents and assets is storytelling so he has now released his first fiction piece. Out for Blood, which is the story of fedora topped debonair gossip sleuth, Clark Kelly. Clark Kelly is not only a great word smith, but he is also a vampire so he gets his stories by flying around at night using his super powers to find and coerce, out of the people in the know,  the hottest gossip in the city.

This was a fun interview as Mike tells great stories and his sense of humor though cheesy, is legendary – JW

Mike Walker Columnist and Bestselling AuthorMike Walker

Heralded as “the Hemingway of gossip” by America’s favorite shock-jock, Howard Stern, millions of readers have faithfully followed Mike Walker’s every word as the National Enquirer’s Guru of Gossip and a New York Times bestselling author.

A longstanding television and radio favorite, for years he hosted the nationally syndicated Mike Walker Show on the Westwood One Network (CBS), and was seen every Friday as co-anchor on Geraldo, making the record number of appearances of any guest ever (264)! Guesting on such top TV shows as Nightline, Larry King Live, The O’Reilly Factor, Nancy Grace, Joan Rivers, A Current Affair, Entertainment Tonight and Charlie Rose, Walker has proven to be an engaging personality as Hollywood’s #1 source of celebrity gossip.

“Mike Walker is the Hemingway of gossip” – Howard Stern

“Has Mike Walker ever missed a beat? Nope! He always nails it.” – Ryan Seacrest

“Mike Walker is the last remaining larger-than-life figure in American tabloid journalism.” – The New Yorker

“There is only one ‘Guru of Gossip,’ and that’s Mike Walker. He’s the Dean of celebrity news and a first-rate TV personality.” – Geraldo Rivera

“I always assume Mike Walker has probably scooped anything I write. He surprises everybody by arriving without horns and a tail. He’s amazingly rational, down-to-earth, intelligent, and ‘with-it.'” LIZ SMITH

“It’s okay to admit you’ve got an enquiring mind,” laughs Mike Walker. “Gossip is, after all, just another word for news in a slinky red dress.”

A bona fide journalistic legend, Mike Walker has for decades captivated millions of readers, listeners and viewers as one of the most engaging, ‘with-it’ personalities in American media.

Mike Walker 01Although best known as Hollywood’s #1 source of celebrity gossip, Walker is also an accomplished author. Amongst many, many other books, he wrote the New York Times #1 bestseller Nicole Brown Simpson: Private Diary of a Life Interrupted with Faye Resnick, and just months later co-wrote Private Diary of an OJ Juror, which rocketed to the NYT bestselling non-fiction list’s #5 spot (making him the only reporter known to have written two bestselling books on the same major news story). He’s penned several books since, including the novel Malicious Intent.

Now, with his latest novel, Out For Blood, set for worldwide release on October 31st via The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House – a.k.a. “the publisher that dared to go there” and introduced E.L. James’ Fifty Shades trilogy to the world – Walker is revealing one of his juiciest scoops yet: An insider’s look at the life of Hollywood’s most fearsome gossip columnist (albeit a fictional one named Clark Kelly, who also just happens to moonlight as a literal blood-sucker…yes, that’s right, a vampire)!

A longstanding television and radio favorite, for years he hosted the nationally syndicated Mike Walker Show on the Westwood One Network (CBS), and was seen every Friday as co-anchor on Geraldo, making the record number of appearances of any guest ever (264)!

Guesting on such top TV shows as Nightline, Larry King Live, The O’Reilly Factor, Nancy Grace, Joan Rivers, A Current Affair, Entertainment Tonight and Charlie Rose, Walker has proven to be an engaging personality as Hollywood’s #1 source of celebrity gossip.

Mike Walker is a “one-man media conglomerate,” in the words of New Yorker magazine, and one of today’s most recognized media names, whether in print, radio, TV, or books. Born in Boston, Walker left home at age 16 and joined the U.S. Air Force, where, during a four-year stint, he began freelancing features to daily newspapers – teaching himself how to be a working journalist. After the Air Force, he remained in the Far East, and became the youngest-ever foreign correspondent for International News Service (which later merged with UP to become UPI), then worked as a staff reporter for Tokyo’s Asahi Shimbun, the world’s largest daily newspaper. His career in Japan included writing a showbiz column for Shipping and Trade News, Asia’s equivalent of the Wall Street Journal.

While in the Far East, Walker worked as a foreign correspondent for NBC’s “Monitor,” the award-winning national news radio show, and as a contributing editor to The Boston Traveler, London Evening News, Hong Kong Tiger Standard, and Bunte (Germany). Fluent in Japanese, he became a news commentator on Japanese TV and radio. He made his first foray into TV production with an award-winning prime-time network special that revealed the fate of twelve Japanese heroes — after the headline-making discovery of the world’s only intact Mitsubishi bomber in the jungles of a Pacific island long-forgotten after World War II.

After years in the Far East – followed by a brief stint working in Europe and the UK — Walker returned to the States, joined the National Enquirer and launched his two-page gossip column. Read by millions, it quickly became what it still is today — the paper’s most popular feature.

Known as the “Guru of Gossip,” Walker’s story-telling ability, coupled with his charm and self-effacing humor, soon made him a television and radio favorite.

He made the leap from guesting to solo-hosting two one-hour specials for MGM Television. He wrote both shows and served as Senior Producer. The first, titled “NATIONAL ENQUIRER PRESENTS: 25 YEARS OF SCANDALS,” commanded what Daily Variety called “phenomenal” ratings. The showbiz bible headlined it as “A Syndie Hit!” Mike’s second special, “NATIONAL ENQUIRER PRESENTS: LOVE, MARRIAGE & DIVORCE HOLLYWOOD STYLE,” scored the same smash ratings.

Walker then wrote the pilot for a daily show, “NATIONAL ENQUIRER TV” that premiered in 94% of US TV markets and aired for two years. Walker co-anchored and hosted his own segment on the show, “PLANET GOSSIP.” He then hosted “The Mike Walker Show” on KABC radio in Los Angeles.

Concurrently, he launched a record-breaking 16-year stint as a regular with Howard Stern, who calls Walker “the Hemingway of gossip.” Stern featured him every Friday on his top-rated radio show to conduct the famed “Mike Walker Game.” Millions fell in love with the hilarious once-a-week segment, which featured him delivering four gossip items – three of which were slated for his next column, and one of which was false. Stern and his Wack Pack had to guess which item was the phony – and very often, Walker stumped the panel.

In addition, the man Publishers Weekly dubbed “The King of Gossip,” has lectured on journalism and gossip at such distinguished journalism schools as the University of California at Berkeley and Columbia University. And he scored the prestigious invitation to become a Fellow of Ireland’s legendary Trinity College, Dublin.

“I’m an historian,” Walker explains. “I could teach a course in mankind’s predilection for gossip as a Professor of Whisperology.”

Walker and his wife of 40 years live in both Palm Beach, Florida, and in Los Angeles, California. They raised two children, both of whom are grown.

book Mike Walker out for bloodBook – Out for Blood

Hollywood’s Most-Feared Gossip Columnist Reveals To-Die-For Secrets…

NYT #1 BESTSELLER & NATIONAL ENQUIRER LEGEND GIVES TABLOIDS SOME BITE – LITERALLY – ON HALLOWEEN 2013

From the publisher that brought you ‘50 Shades of Grey’…

Think tabloid reporters are “blood-suckers”?

Just wait until you meet Clark Kelly.

In Out For Blood [The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House, October 31st, 2013], the latest book from #1 New York Times bestselling author and veteran National Enquirer ‘Guru of Gossip’ Mike Walker, the term “deadline” takes new meaning.

Out For Blood’s atypical hero, Clark has a to-die-for secret: he’s the undead!

Flying the night skies to spy on Tinseltown’s sexiest stars and consistently scooping his industry cohorts, with a killer career as gossip-in-residence at the National Revealer, Clark has long stood to be one of Hollywood’s most-feared men…which is to say nothing of his razor-sharp bite.

But when a sex tape scandal with smokin’ hot starlet/tabloid terror TayLo Logan leads him into a nefarious murder plot that threatens everything he holds dear – including his beloved Revealer post – it’s high time for the real fangs come out.

An uproariously funny, satirical and surprisingly thought-provoking romp through the sex, lies and videotape that make the Hollywood gossip machine go ‘round, Out For Blood is a novel that only the likes of Walker could write.

“In reading the first draft, I couldn’t put it down,” says Christa Beebe of The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House. “There’s drama, romance, thrills…and, of course, lots of juicy gossip. Fans of Mike’s – and anyone who loves a fun read – won’t be disappointed.”

Set for release on October 31st, 2013, Mike Walker’s Out For Blood is the perfect novel to sink your teeth into this Halloween.

Order From Amazon

National Revealer’s Clark Kelly carved out his killer career as Hollywood’s most-feared gossip columnist by exploiting mankind’s most ancient vulnerability: “Everyone’s got a secret . . . and someone’s dying to tell it!”

Clark never reveals his to-die-for secret!

NEWS FLASH: Dude’s a vampire! CUE SCARY MUSIC . . . our undead gossip guru flies the night skies to spy on Hollywood’s hottest stars-then inks about their bedroom kinks!

Imagine our studly, urbane journalist jotting notes as he hovers outside Scarlett Johansson’s bedroom window, or peeks into Tom Cruise’s “bachelor pad.” Star secrets . . .? This vampire BITES! And what’s sexier than vampires, ladies? Just ask smokin’ hot starlet/tabloid terror TayLo Logan-this Wild Child gets crazy with bad boy Clark because his bite makes her blood boil!

Then it’s LIGHTS . . . CAMERA . . . ACTION! . . . but not in a good way: Vampire Boy and Tabloid Train Wreck TayLo unwittingly end up stars of a sizzling sex tape-destined for worldwide display on the notorious vampire fan sex site, FANGBANGING.COM. Still, the duo’s beyond-the-grave love story simmers away as Clark rips the lid off a murder cover-up-then discovers a murderous plot against TayLo! DANGER!

Can Clark stop a stalker who wants to drain his lover dry? Or wreak revenge on Tinseltown billion-heiress Roma Kane for her poisonous plot to paralyze TayLo-and her career? Can he foil a murder cabal so evil it feeds stars’ pets to coyotes? AND THEN . . . talk about the plot thickening!

Roma’s billionaire granddaddy, mogul Montague Kane, taking a breather from the nymphet “nannies” paid to play his naughty high-chair games, springs a backstab surprise-buying out Clark’s beloved National Revealer. Suddenly, “deadline” takes on a whole new meaning.

Triggered by vengeful fury, Clark goes “rogue vampire!” Evil is punished . . . and the sun shines once more when he creates a Hollywood happy ending that makes everyone (undeads included) a STAR! Hold the front page! Because Clark Kelly’s . . . Out For Blood!

Out For Blood is currently available for pre-order via The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House, and will be widely available via all major online retailers and select brick-and-mortar booksellers as of October 31st, 2013.

Ghostwriting Conference in Long Beach

Ghostwriters and writers interested in making a career in ghostwriting have their first ever conference.

banner ghostwriters unite

Ghostwriters Unite! is the world’s pioneering conference for ghostwriters. Held May 3-5 at the Hilton in downtown Long Beach, GU! will bring together some of the best people in the book industry including publishers, literary agents, authors, distributors, eBook specialists, and—of course—ghostwriters.

Ghostwriters Unite! is the first conference of its kind: an international gathering to share ghostwriting experiences and expertise and discuss the future of our profession.

How did this pioneering event get its start?

Ghostwriters Unite! is the mental baby of Claudia Suzanne, the first person to ever deconstruct (Secrets of a Ghostwriter) and teach (Ghostwriting Certificate Program) how ghosts do what we do.

Ghostwriters Unite! was originally envisioned as an afternoon event, a chance for Suzanne’s alumni  to meet and mingle with each other, their former teacher, and other industry experts.

But so many people got excited about the idea of getting together and talking about “professionalizing” our field that it’s grown into a full-blown conference!

We’ll be talking about setting fee standards and ethical boundaries and bylines and problem clients and working with agencies and publishing options and lots more.

If you’re a ghostwriter or are even thinking of getting started in this lucrative, recession-proof field, this is the one event you won’t want to miss!

The conference takes place May 3, 4, and 5, 2013 at the Hilton Long Beach & Executive Meeting Center, 701 West Ocean Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90831.

We’ll start with a Friday night mixer, then a full day of panels on finding clients, setting fees, handling the trust issue, maintaining voice, and other ghostwriter-specific topics. We’ll take a break at lunch with a keynote speaker and enjoy a limited-space banquet dinner with a special-guest author. We’ll finish the conference Sunday morning with an extended-panel discussion about the state of the book industry.

Get more information:

Ghostwriters Unite http://ghostwritersunite.com/

Come join me at this conference. Yes I will be there helping out Claudine and meeting all the wonderful authors and other industry leaders.

I can not stress enough how this conference may be one of the most important in the industry for those that want to make a living writing. – JW

Anything Is Possible; A Tale of ÆSOP

Anything Is Possible, Illustrated edition, an original novel by Thomas Bähler is a thought-provoking modern treasure, a fascinating fictional account of the life of the famed creator of Aesop’s Fables, a brilliant storyteller and eternal optimist who lived around 600 BCE.

The life of the great philosopher and teacher Æsop is explored for the first time ever in a brilliantly crafted historical fiction illuminated by fifty full page illustrations .

The novel begins with Aesop’s birth as a slave, covers his long quest for freedom and examines his service to the richest and most powerful man in the world.

Many would be surprised to know that Æsop, an enduring philosopher in the modern world, was born a slave. Yet, later in life, he served as Ambassador to the wealthiest King in ancient history, simply with a fierce belief in his own potential, and the ever-stalwart laws of reality…anything is possible.

Today, Æsop and his fables are quoted an estimated one million times daily, across the globe. Not bad for someone who lived 2600 years ago.

Written with the same simple genius as its central protagonist, in Anything Is Possible, the reader discovers the meaning of Æsop’s profound lessons on his/her own… subsequently, you, the reader, own these lessons, forever.

Change requires your permission.
Are you ready to BE POSSIBLE?

If this man, born a slave in 620 BC, can still inspire the world with his message in the year 2013… what does that mean YOU can do?

POSSIBILITY AWAITS…

We are all here to serve.

We are all here to BE POSSIBLE.

“A thought provoking exploration of freedom. It will inspire anyone who has ever dreamed of a better life.” – Quincy Jones

Self-Publishing for the Right Reasons — FriesenPress

Self-Publishing for the Right Reasons

I just recently watched a webinar featuring Mr. Guy Kawasaki that had some fantastic information for self-publishing authors. One of his top ten tips that really stood out for me is about ‘writing for the right reasons’ – so I thought I would share it with you right here on the FriesenPress Blog!

There are many wrong reasons to write a book, including writing for the sake of just making money, or to increase your consulting or speech fees. If you write a great book, you may make a lot of money as a secondary benefit, but it should not be the main reason you are writing in the first place.​

Starley Murray Image and Branding Strategist Goes Into Detail on How To Write Your Backstory or Point of View for OPM Author / Book Contest

Do you want to enter the competition and don’t know how to answer to contest questions? Starley goes into great detail to help you put together a winning entry.

On Purpose Magazine is known for helping authors promote themselves and since we love authors we want to do more.

OPM Founder JW Najarian and Image and Branding Strategist Starley Murray Audio How to Write Your Backstory ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

In the audio above famed image and branding strategist Starley Murray discusses with JW Najarian the tips, tricks and secrets of writing your Point of View (POV) or what is also referred to as the Backstory in your efforts toward winning the OPM Author / Book Competition and using it in your marketing and promotion yourself and your books.

Does Your Image Detract from Your Message? by Top Image Expert Starley MurrayStarley Murray

I choose Celebrity Image Expert Starley Murray to help us build our backstory or Point of View (POV) because Starley has been on TV every single month for the past ten years with nearly 3000 appearances overall.

Specializing in brand development, media training and publicity image she has been in demand with celebrities, Fortune 500 companies, industry experts, and TV stations for the last 20 years. Starley has generated more than $1 Million in sales directly from her TV appearances and media productions.

jw and starley 01She’s called upon by stars from Inside Edition and the E! Channel and many celebrities like Brooke Burke, Tommy Lee Jones, Marie Osmond, and Eva Longoria. Starley’s plugged in to internationally recognized media events like the Academy Awards and has interviewed hundreds of celebrities on the red carpet and leverages her appearances to support Cancer Survivors and Domestic Violence Prevention.

She is proud to be regularly requested for coaching behind the scenes at the American Idol try outs and all while on live television as a media correspondent for a FOX TV news show!

Writing Your Backstory or Point of View for the OPM Contest

The On Purpose Magazine (OPM) Author Book Competition is not based on your book, but rather on your story around the book. OPM wants to help authors promote their books and believe the first thing you need to have is a great package put together to help promote, market and sell you and your book.

OPM has put a contest together to find the most original, compelling and great backstory or author point of view which will be the basis of all your promotional and marketing efforts going forward.

Here are the questions you will be asked to answer for the competition and an explanation of how to answer them to help you build a winning entry.

Even if you do not enter the competition and you should… just check out the prizes; you will end up building a very strong foundation for the rest of your marketing and promotional campaigns going forward so have fun and get creative!

The following is an outline of the lesson on the audio. Use both guide you or not. There is no right way to answer these questions. I am sure many of you will answer from the heart and just blow us away and some of you will step out of the box, the box is in.

OPM Author / Book contest questions

Who Is The Author?

Give Us Your Story, Background, History or something interesting that might tie you to the book.

  1. Share your experiences about your back ground history (often called your back story) to give the reader a way to connect with you.
  2. Concentrate your story on an inspiring and/or exciting experience from your life.
  3. Don’t discount the power of others relating to you if the experience is common and not action packed. Common threads are strong connections.
  4. Develop your backstory and share your emotions to connect to your reader.
  5. Have a short one minute back story as well as a longer version such as a five minute presentation. Likely you will get the most mileage from your short sound bites for media related experiences and the longer versions when you have the opportunity to more deeply connect with your readers/audience.

 What Is This Book About?

What is the theme? Give us a short Description of the Book and the Story.

  1. Your theme or genre to your book is also a form of branding. You may have more than one applicable theme. If so, prioritize your themes and lead with the strongest.
  2. Develop your description of the book in ways to invoke the reader’s senses such as sight, sound, taste or touch. In video and television interviews, strong visuals are strong forms of publicity.
  3. Keep your description short in length of words and impactful in meaning of your words. In the media, the less you say …the more they will listen. It’s how you say it that can be most impactful.
  4. Be purposeful as to the order of words and sentences in your descriptions. The first impression rule still applies and you can set the tone and support the mood of the reader from beginning to end.

 Why Did You Write This Book?

What compelled you to write this book? Why you and not someone else?

  1. Combine your unique back story with your special interests and skills when sharing the reasons why you wrote your book. Having a unique fusion of inspiration with special skills makes your brand more difficult to copy by others competing for publicity.
  2. Differentiate your writing styles and share why your take on your top is unique.
  3. Reveal something about yourself that is specific only to you as an author or person.
  4. Share your reasons to write this book that may be different from what inspires other authors or readers of your topic.

 Why should someone read this book?

Why should someone read this book and who should read this book? Who will this book entertain, inspire, educate, and help?

  1. List all the reasons your book can help other people and make a difference.
  2. Categorize the reasons that can help readers immediately in their lives, and the ones that can help them long term as well as those reasons that just might make them smile or feel like they are a part of something special that is bigger than them as one person.
  3. Then pick the top three reasons from each of these three areas to support your reason why someone should read your book to answer the questions readers often ask themselves subconsciously. (What’s in it for me)
  4. Determine who your target market is and adjust your language and pinpoint your promotional campaign to reach the groups that have the highest interest in your book.

The Contest

Over 3 Million books come out every year and only a handful of them make any money or get any recognition. In fact 50% of all new books make less than $250 on average in their first year!

This is a startling and amazingly sad fact and it is not because the books are not worthy, solid, or wonderful, but because the marketing efforts behind the books are almost non existent or worse, a lot of money is spent in the wrong direction.

I have interviewed many bestselling and not best selling authors and I always get the same feedback. Marketing and promotions is the hardest part of writing a book.

What is one of the best ways to market and promote? Simple, let people get to know you. Exposure is not enough. You need the right type of exposure. This helps you build credibility and puts you on course to build a community which is one of the best ways to create buzz and sell more books.

On Purpose Magazine Wants To Help Authors Promote Their Books

On Purpose Magazine is doing something different and very special for the new and not so new author to help them get more of the right type of exposure.

We will not be reading your book! What?? How can you have a Author / Book Competition / Contest without reading the book? Again Simple…

If you write a great book, give it a fantastic title and put a great picture on the front… guess how many people will beat a path to your door to get this book? Generally no one. First people need to know that it is available, but more importantly people need a reason to pick it up to read.

What is the best way to promote my book?

Through my many interviews and working with authors and publicists and public relations executives I have learned that what an author needs beyond a great book, is a well defined, compelling, interesting or relate-able story.

The Author needs to get exposure from many different sources.

  • Radio (Internet, Satellite and Terrestrial)
  • Television (Internet, Local and National)
  • Newspaper
  • Magazines
  • Industry Publications
  • Other Publications
  • Associations
  • Groups
  • Word of Mouth
  • and Many Others

But are you ready for your close up? Do you know what you are going to say or how your going to say it?

Many of the 3 million authors will never get their work exposed and many others will get some type of exposure, but waste it by not knowing what to say and how to present themselves.

What an author needs is a package that is put together and tested. Starting with a headshot, bio and compelling book description. It will also be nice to have a professional interview with a professional publication, completed and on your resume.

This is what this contest will give the author. On Purpose Magazine’s contest is all about what we call the author’s Point of View (POV). The POV is the author’s backstory, reason for writing the book and reason why the reader absolutely needs to have this book or get it for a friend..

OPM’s contest will choose a winner based on the best POV submitted. The winner will receive one of our Gold Premium Promotional Package including a full page story with a full 30 minute professional interview that will be featured in OPM and shared out to thousands and thousands of readers, industry people and is, of course, yours to distribute as you see fit all your promotional needs. There will also be other bonuses from our industry sponsors.

So by the time you are done you will have:

  • A Headshot (you supply the headshot, but you have to have one for the interview and you can take it with your cell phone, but don’t screw yourself. Take a decent one.)
  • A Bio (You must supply this also, but if you complete the contest, believe me you will have a great one.)
  • A Point of View (The basis for all your marketing, promotion, interviews and more)
  • A professional interview published on a recognized web magazine.
  • One great resume entry

For new authors this will be you breaking the ice and getting more and more interviews or speaking engagements. For some of you seasoned authors this will be a chance for you to get more and better exposure and to dust off your old POV and create another, or it may be your chance to get noticed in the new social media.

Devon Blaine SoCal Publicist of the Year on Professional PR and Crisis Intervention

devon blaineDevon Blaine, founder and owner of The Blaine Group in Beverly Hills

Talks to OPM about her award for publicist of the year, The business of professional public relations, business, promotional and marketing strategy and the Blaine Groups specialty in crisis planning, control, intervention and management.

Devon Blaine Audio Interview on her life, career, PR, promotion, winning publicist of the year and crisis management ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

NOTE: There was one question, on the recording that was asked,but somehow did not get recorded. The question was about women having to work harder to build a business. Devon answered that she did not believe that to be true….. Listen to the audio to hear her full answer.

One of the things I like about what I do is meeting and working with public relations professionals. I have been blessed to work with some big names and many smaller companies.

The other side of that coin is that I have also worked with many companies that call themselves professionals, but only seem to be playing at it. Public relations, I have found, can rarely be faked. They say even a blind squirrel can occasionally find a nut or two, but I have rarely seen a bad PR firm pull off a successful event or project.

What I have seen is that promotion is a tricky game and that you can never be sure that any effort will deliver a result, but you can be assured that no action or a half hearted stab at it will result in failure .

So when I get to work with firms like The Blaine Group, it just makes my day and my life easier. They are professionals that do what they say and say what they do and they work at under-promising and over-delivering, not the other way around.

I believe I have been blessed to know and work with people like Devon and her amazing staff and believe that if you are serious about your product, project, service or business, that you should seriously consider The Blaine Group or a firm that can and will deliver. – JW

Randy Gage – Risky is the New Safe – Book Release

Randy Gage,  the Millionaire Messiah, Releases His Ninth Book and Most Controversial Ever!

Randy Gage - Risky is the New Safe 3d

Randy’s Rants, His Blog, his speaches… Randy does not shy away from controversial conversations about religion, politics or especially about prosperity as Randy feels it is a sin to be Poor. His 9th Book Risky is the New Safe is his boldest yet and will surely be a classic for a new age.

I have been following Randy for many years, since I first heard him speak to around a thousand people at a conference. He is a great speaker, funny, inspiring, smart and wise.

I especially love his no fear, straight talk, sense of humor and his lessons in how to build sales, teams, community….. and about what it takes to have a successful and prosperous life.

I am elated to have been chosen by Randy to be one of a small few that got a chance to receive a gallery copy (pre-release copy) of his new book which is not being released till October 30th. This book is really what we need right now. I cannot say I agree with it all, but I am a Randy Gage believer and this book did not change my mind. It actually helped me clarify a few things I need to do and it put a real fire under my ass to do some things I was not doing.

The book, “Risky is the New Safe”, is the Randy Gage I so loved so much from his book “Why You’re Dumb Sick and Broke and How to Get Smart Healthy and Rich”.  The advance buzz on this book is ridiculous and amazingly huge. I believe this is a book you will be buying for your friends and family.

Many may describe this book as irreverent and very way out there,  and it is meant to be. Not for shock value, but because Randy believes the playing field has changed so much that we need to get real and be able to change our “out of date” thinking now or possibly peril. 

We have seen technology change things for the better and the worse in a very short time and Randy believes that, not only do we need to embrace the change, but we have to get extremely creative and change our way of thinking and looking at the world, if we want to be successful in it.

This book will be called many things. A game changer, a look at the future or even crazy talk, but whatever you believe you will be changed by this book as once a mind is stretched, it is hard to put back.

One thing I know for sure is that Randy Gage doesn’t say things he does not mean and he explains in great detail why he believes what he is predicting and what you need to do to take advantage of the incredible changes yet to come.

Get ready to Zig while others continue to Zag.

I can only imagine Randy’s schedule for this book release, so I so thank him for giving me some of his personal time to give me this interview. Randy tells it like it is, in his new book and in this interview. Thank You Randy – JW

Randy Gage - Risky is the New Safe 3dRisky is the New Safe

Is…. Brash, Controversial, Thought-Provoking

This is a different kind of book for a different kind of thinking.  It’s a thought-provoking manifesto for risk takers.  Disruptive technology, accelerating speed of change and economic upheaval are changing the game.  The same tired, old conventional thinking won’t get you to success today.

Risky Is the New Safe will change the way you look at everything!  You’ll view challenges – and the corresponding opportunities they provide – in entirely new and exciting ways.  You’ll recognize powerful new gateways you can walk through to create wealth.

In this mind-bending book you’ll discover:

  • How mavericks like Steve Jobs, Richard Branson and Mark Cuban, think differently – and what you can learn from them;
  • The six-month online course that could allow you to earn more than a Ph.D.;
  • How social media changes branding and marketing forever, and what that means for you;
  • What happens when holo-suites and virtual-reality sex come about, and how you need to prepare;
  • The New Religion of Ideas:  How to become an “idea generator” and declare as a free agent; and,
  • What will cause the Euro, precious metals, and oceanfront real estate to collapse – and how that can make you rich!

I’ll warn you up front, the book will be controversial to some.  Randy attacks anything that holds you back from success, including government propaganda, conventional wisdom, and other limiting beliefs.  He didn’t write Risky Is the New Safe to tell you what to think.  He wrote it to cause you to think.

I don’t expect you to agree with everything you read in there – and would be surprised if you did. It’s for people who love intellectual discourse, challenging ideas, opposing viewpoints and honest and respectful discussion of the issues surrounding what it takes to be successful today.

Here is what others that received a pre-release  are saying!

Global Business Celebrity,
Bestselling Author, Sometime Cowboy

Read this book. But, before you do, suspend what you already believe is true about the way the world is and operates. You are about to learn what ‘critical thinking’ is all about, why risky indeed is the new (and perhaps, only) safe, and how it can make you wiser and more prosperous. The good news is that – in typical Randy Gage style – it will be fun, entertaining, and just sarcastic enough to keep you riveted to every page. Get out your pen and highlighter…you’re gonna’ need it!”
— Bob Burg
Co-author of The Go-Giver
and author of Endless Referrals

Couldn’t take my eyes off this, great freaking book!  Risky is the New Safe is a combination of Buffet, Springsteen, Rand, and Patton. Randy Gage is the ranking intellect of prosperity in our time, and only Luddites will ignore him. He has, yet again, written of the promise of abundance, the appeal of change, and the vast value of new and emerging relationships. There’s nothing risky about buying this book except forgetting to do anything else while you’re engrossed in it.” — Alan Weiss, Ph.D.
Author, The Consulting Bible and Thrive: Stop Wishing Your Life Away!

Relevant, challenging and thought-provoking.  This book is a must-read for entrepreneurs.”
— Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D.
Author of A New Purpose: Redefining Money, Family, Work, Retirement
and Success

I think I held my breath through the entire first chapter. Randy paints a vivid picture of an exhilarating future if we heed his warnings and a terrifying one if we don’t. Reading this book is the safest bet you’ve got.” — Kyle Maynard
2-time ESPY Award winner and author of NY Times bestseller No Excuses

Riveting! A homerun! Gripped me from the first pages and expanded my mind while entertaining me too. I love this gem!” — Joe Vitale
Author, Attract Money Now
and Hypnotic Writing

I couldn’t put it down! In fact, I found myself racing through each page because I couldn’t wait to find out what was coming next.  My next reading will include a highlighter and my journal so I can incorporate Randy’s life changing thoughts into my life on a daily basis.  This book inspired me, challenged me and motivated me to think differently and take my mission to a much bigger level.  I will be sharing it with all of my peers.” — JJ Virgin
Celebrity Nutrition & Fitness Expert
Bestselling Author,
TV Personality & Speaker

No wonder this book has more buzz than any other this year!  It’s breathtaking, brilliant, and bold – a textbook for creating your prosperity and success.”
— Art Jonak
President, Network Professionals, Inc.

Once you read – and more importantly apply  – the ideas contained in Risky is the New Safe, it will be impossible to go back to your old ways of thinking. Randy Gage will free your mind from the shackles of outdated thinking and give you tools that will enable you to navigate the greatest paradigm shift we are now in with the deftness of a Jedi Master. This is an outstanding work.”

Randy GageRandy Gage

“I believe you were born to be rich, people are meant to be inspired, and conventions should rock.

I believe a blog can change the world and a speech can change a life.

I believe safe is the new risky, boring is criminal, and pitchers should hit.

Call me a philosopher, a Jedi Knight or the millionaire messiah, just don’t call me late for dinner. I like hot cars, warm beaches and cold Dr. Pepper. Quiet confidence and loud ideas are sexy. When I’m not prowling the podium or locked in my lonely writer’s garret, you’ll find me playing 3rd base for a softball team somewhere.

I believe in my work, because I believe in you.”

I met Elayna at Author 101 a few years back and was immediately taken by her drive and intelligence. Elayna is all of 4’9″ tall and a striking women. I can only guess that this had to be an issue with businessmen and women, taking her seriously. She also has an accent so that added to her challenges.

Where Elayna succeeds is in her drive, vision, passion and willingness to take measured risks. I say measured because Elayna is also a single mom and so she, like any single mom, needed to make sure she could support her daughters. She didn’t do it overnight, but in the short time I have known her she has gone from having drive to being fully alive.

Elayna has written two books, she runs several organizations, she works with people like Jay Conrad Levinson and many other thought leaders and teachers she once only studied.

She is an expert at social media and especially on how to position yourself as an expert in your field so that people who have not met you, take you seriously. Many people talk about positioning and the difference with what Elayna teaches is about how to tout yourself as an expert and stay in integrity at the same time.

Elayna is speaking at the More Power Live Conference in Dallas September 20-23, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza, Dallas Texas. See the details below and register today.

I met Bob at a conference where we were both interviewing some of the more interesting people that spoke or attended there. I am used to doing interviews and after speaking with Bob, I was taken back by his request to interview me!

It is not often that I am asked to be interviewed. Bob was great and asked some great questions and we have become friendly since that interview.

I found out that Bob was producing his first business conference and took the opportunity to get back to Bob and ask him for an interview. I was very excited to get Bob to say yes, first so I could get him back and second because I have gotten to know Bob as someone that knows what he is doing and he loves to teach and help others find success.

Thank you Bob for saying yes to my interview. It turned out to be full of great and very powerful information and mentoring Bob is known for. – JW
