Straight From the Mouth of Julianne McLean, co-author of Cocktails and Mock-Tales



Thanks for letting us interrogate you!  Can you give us a go-for-the-gut answer as to why you wanted to be an author? 

I love to write. If anyone reads it,it is a bonus!

Tell us (we won’t tell promise!) is it all it’s cracked up to be?  I mean what are the perks and
what are the demands? 

The perks are seeing the book on e-book  and print for the first time and watching people buy and enjoy themselves. The demands are minimal if you enjoy writing and cartooning

Which route did you take – traditional or self-published – and can you give us the nitty gritty low down on what’s that like? 

We went  traditional  and the hardest part is finding a publisher who is impressed with the book as much as we are

What’s the snarkiest thing you can say about the publishing industry (e.g. rejections, the long wait, etc.) 

I think it is sad that so many book shops have now closed with the advent of e-books. It has become tougher to sell to the bookshops as they have dwindling funds

Tell us for real what your family feels about you spending so much time getting your book written, polished, edited, formatted, published, what have you? 

They are happy when I am happy and even happier when they see the results

What was the craziest or insane thing that happened to you in the book publishing process? 

Writing this blog. I did not save it to my computer and had to redo. I wish I could remember what I wrote the first time round. I am sure it was better.

How about the social networks?  Which ones do you believe help and which ones do you wish you could avoid? 

You would have to ask my publisher. He is the guru here. I have had many requests for the book in print on face-book as people want to give our book as gifts

Book sales.  Don’t you just love them (or lack of?)?  How are you making the sales happen for you? 

I am” micro-marketing”, calling individual book shops around Australia. Mark and I will be doing television morning shows and I have already done interviews with local magazines

What is one thing you’d like to jump on the rooftop and scream about? 

Mark’s cartooning ability and wit

Book Spotlight: Have Your Received Since You Believed: Quest For The Holy Spirit by Brian Hollins





About The Book


TitleHave You Received Since You Believed? Quest For The Holy Spirit
Author: Brian Hollins
Publisher: BookBaby
Publication Date: June 12, 2016
Pages: 59
Genre: Christian Living

The Spirit that is within me that leads and guides me into all truth is again personified when I receive Christ as my Lord and Savior. The Spirit that is upon me after I ask for him is how I receive power. How could I believe that he would come upon me if I have not really received first that he dwells within me? This is what I wrestled with for many years. The problem was, I really didn’t believe the way I thought; And and maybe I also didn’t understand the purpose of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer. Bottom line, now that I think about it, I just didn’t believe right.


Have You Received Since You Believed? Quest For The Holy Spirit is available at AmazonBarnes & NobleGoodreads

Straight From the Mouth of 'I Have Faith' Davin Whitehurst



Davin Whitehurst lives in the beautiful high desert of Southern Arizona with his wife and son. He is releasing his first book "I have Faith" in May of 2016 but has so many more that are in the making. The motivation behind the books are deeply rooted from in his own past. He is a living testimony of Proverbs 22:6. Growing up in Southwest Kansas and in a Christian household, he was trained up in the way he should go. By the time he became a teenager, Davin turned away from God and left church. Fast forward into his late twenties and God brought him back with a powerful calling. He and his family have been faithfully serving at Seed of Abraham Christian Center International for over seven years now. Proof that when we teach our children the way they should go. When they get older, they know where to turn and will not depart from God. Davin wants each book written to be a resource that parents have to help train their children in the way they should go. He writes stories in a simple way that will be fun and practical for every child. He wants children to get excited about faith and the things of God.

His latest release is the children’s book, I Have Faith.

For More Information
About the Book:

Are you ready to get your child excited about faith? “I Have Faith” puts your child right in the footsteps of Danny as he begins to learn about faith. Danny and his older brother have been wanting a dog, but both know their parents don’t think they are ready for a dog. When Danny’s mom begins
teaching him what the bible says about faith, he puts his faith into action. After praying and releasing his faith for a dog, doubt and even his best friend keep telling him that he will never get a dog. Over time Danny never loses his faith in the promises of God and finds that God is faithful and that faith works. Come along on this journey that is a real life event that took place in the author’s life as a child.
This book has great illustrations that support a wonderful story about finding faith in God. As you are teaching your child about principals in the bible; this book will help you teach faith. What a wonderful experience it is when we can see our children begin to develop their faith in God, and grow from a tiny mustard seed to a firmly planted tree. The back of the book has a parent/child discussion which will help children gain understanding in faith and some scriptures that Danny’s mom used to get him excited about faith.

Thanks for letting us interrogate you!  Can you give us a go-for-the-gut answer as to why you wanted to be an author?

I never wanted to be an author and I ran from my calling for years. God began to speak to me about writing children’s books about eight years ago. I was in the middle of a music career and a developing government job. I just could never shake it though. About two years ago I told God that I would do what He had called me to do. From that point forward I have been working on getting every book idea and concept He has given me published. I Have Faith is the first of those.

Tell us (we won’t tell promise!) is it all it’s cracked up to be?  I mean what are the perks and what are the demands?

I am not coming into the industry to make money or be a famous author. I am in this to bring the bible to life for children. If you’re not in this to get your book out to people to enjoy, it probably won’t be all it’s cracked up to be. I have found that it takes a lot of work and effort to get a book out there and in the hands of readers. Seeing children read my book and knowing parents are reading this to their children have been everything I wanted out of this book. 

Which route did you take – traditional or self-published – and can you give us the nitty gritty low down on what’s that like?

Getting my book published was not a simple task. The process of me self publishing was pretty smooth but the process to figure out I needed to do it on my own was rough. I looked at submitting to traditional publishers. I had been holding onto this idea so long I did not want to wait for that. I knew the book needed to get out. I looked at a lot of vanity press or subsidy publishers and found out that most of them have shady accounting processes or are associated with companies I did not want a part of. This led me to starting Childlike Faith Publishing. You can self publish and do marketing for the price of just having a vanity press get your book on their print on demand services, no marketing. Every author needs to take time to figure out what will be best for your book. You took the time to get your book right. Take the time to get the right publishing to back it.

What’s the snarkiest thing you can say about the publishing industry?

I have found a lot of the business to be unethical. I did not mess with any traditional publishers though so I cannot speak about them. If you are self publishing watch out whom you deal with. If they are trying to rush you into something, don’t take the bait.

Tell us for real what your family feels about you spending so much time getting your book written, polished, edited, formatted, published, what have you?

I am so grateful for my wife and son being supportive in this whole process. When I am in my office writing they know it’s my time. I think they are used to it as I used to spend forty hours a week at work and forty hours a week in the recording studio. They have always been supportive of my creative ventures.

What was the craziest or insane thing that happened to you in the book publishing process?

I did not have any crazy stuff happen. I think because I was so patient on getting this book completed, I was able to avoid anything to crazy. Maybe on my next book I can report on a giant mastiff snatching my notebook out of my hands at the beach and swimming into the ocean or something.

How about the social networks?  Which ones do you believe help and which ones do you wish you could avoid?

I am not sure which one to avoid yet. I have found that Facebook has been one of my best so far. I have a Pintrest but have not really seen any success with that. I am still studying these avenues of media and seeing what works best.

Book sales.  Don’t you just love them (or lack of?)?  How are you making the sales happen for you?

I am finding out that without people getting to know me, sales are almost none existent. My paperback has been selling very well but the digital sales have been slow. I love the journey. I think it can be daunting at times but has been great. Most of my sales have come from book signings and people who I have talked to and meet.

What is one thing you’d like to jump on the rooftop and scream about?

I love Jesus. I would and do praise Him from roof tops and mountain tops as well. I would also say that I would love to get on a rooftop and just yell out encouragement to this world right now.

Okay, too much sugar for you today!  Here’s a nice cup of Chamomile tea and come on over and sit under the cabana and watch the waves roll in.  Now…can you tell us what you love about being a published author and how all those things above doesn’t matter because it’s all part of the whole scheme of things and you wouldn’t have it any other way?

My whole purpose for writing I Have Faith was to bring the biblical principle of faith to children. Seeing parents get their children involved and excited about their own faith is what it is all about. No matter the struggle or pain it would take. I would do it all again just to see the foundation of faith built in children.

Book Spotlight: Sustainable Church by Walt Russell, PH.D.



About The Book

TitleSustainable Church
Author: Walt Russell

Publisher: Quoir
Pages: 234
Genre: Christian / Church Leadership / Ecclesiology



Book Description:


Sustainable Church is a thorough, Bible-based exposition of how the ministry of every church should be organically built around all of the Spirit-gifted followers of Jesus within that local body. It critiques the shallow pragmatism and unsustainability of non-organic churches and biblically showcases the sustainability of the organic church. “Body Discipleship” is a key part of the church’s sustainability and the author explains biblically how it corrects the model of discipleship that has been popular for the last 2-3 generations. Additionally, Sustainable Church showcases the servant-model of biblical leaders who are supposed to equip the saints to do the work of ministry on behalf of Jesus, the true Pastor/Shepherd of every local church!


Book Excerpt:

Introduction


MUsin Gs on cricket basket


Five years ago my wife Marty and I visited northern Louisiana and stayed in a lovely house on a lake. The owners of the home knew that I liked to fish and they graciously gifted us with a bait basket full of crickets. Fishing with crickets was relatively new to me, so after my first morning of fishing, I was intrigued to observe the cricket bait container and its now-depleted population.
The first thing I noticed was that if the crickets had just looked straight up, they would have been able to jump or crawl up and through the huge opening in the top of the basket. However, they seemed content to settle for the confines of the familiar. They could see the outside world through the fine mesh walls of the basket, but they could not join it. Apparently, seeing it was enough. I did notice that a very small percentage of crickets had jumped or crawled out of the container by the next morning, but the vast majority were still captive and crawling up and down the same walls, over and over. Their immediate goal seemed to be avoiding the big hand that periodically invaded their space!
Christians can be a bit like the crickets in the cricket basket. We have had our familiar containers—church traditions—for many centuries. Many aspects of these traditions restrict us in a confined space, where too often we are satisfied to remain.

Straight From the Mouth of 'Scapegoat' Emilio Corsetti III



Emilio Corsetti III is a professional pilot and author. Emilio has written for both regional and national publications including the Chicago Tribune, Multimedia Producer, and Professional Pilot magazine. Emilio is the author of the book 35 Miles From Shore: The Ditching and Rescue of ALM Flight 980. The upcoming book Scapegoat: A Flight Crew's Journey from Heroes to Villains to Redemption tells the true story of an airline crew wrongly blamed for causing a near-fatal accident and the captain's decades-long battle to clear his name. Emilio is a graduate of St. Louis University. He and his wife Lynn reside in Dallas, TX.

About the Book:

"This is the kind of case the Board has never had to deal with-a head-on collision between the credibility of a flight crew versus the airworthiness of the aircraft." NTSB Investigator-in-Charge Leslie Dean Kampschror

On April 4, 1979, a Boeing 727 with 82 passengers and a crew of 7 rolled over and plummeted from an altitude of 39,000 feet to within seconds of crashing were it not for the crew's actions to save the

While the crew's efforts to save TWA 841 were initially hailed as heroic, that all changed when safety inspectors found twenty-one minutes of the thirty-minute cockpit voice recorder tape blank. The captain of the flight, Harvey "Hoot" Gibson, subsequently came under suspicion for deliberately erasing the tape in an effort to hide incriminating evidence. The voice recorder was never evaluated for any deficiencies.

From that moment on, the investigation was focused on the crew to the exclusion of all other evidence. It was an investigation based on rumors, innuendos, and speculation. Eventually the NTSB, despite sworn testimony to the contrary, blamed the crew for the incident by having improperly manipulated the controls, leading to the dive.

This is the story of an NTSB investigation gone awry and one pilot's decades-long battle to clear his name.
plane. The cause of the unexplained dive was the subject of one of the longest NTSB investigations at that time.

Scapegoat: A Flight Crew’s Journey from Heroes to Villains to Redemption is available at Amazon and B&N.


Thanks for letting us interrogate you!  Can you give us a go-for-the-gut answer as to why you wanted to be an author?

There is nothing more gratifying than to tell a story that has never been told before.

Tell us (we won’t tell promise!) is it all it’s cracked up to be?  I mean what are the perks and what are the demands?

Writing a book is hard work. But the reward of seeing your hard work realized is worth the effort.

Which route did you take – traditional or self-published – and can you give us the nitty gritty low down on what’s that like?

I’d like to take a minute to try and change this whole concept of self-publishing. Self-publishing is when you print your book at Kinkos and put it in a three ring binder. My book was independently published. It is being distributed by a national distributor. When a filmmaker makes an independent film, you don’t call it a home movie, do you?

What’s the snarkiest thing you can say about the publishing industry?

Book publishing has gone the way of the major film studios. They aren’t willing to hear new voices for fear of having it blow up in their faces.

Tell us for real what your family feels about you spending so much time getting your book written, polished, edited, formatted, published, what have you?

They’re like anyone else. If it sucks, they’ll let me know. If it’s good, they’ll tell me. If it needs work, they’ll tell me that as well.

What was the craziest or insane thing that happened to you in the book publishing process?

Selling over 10,000 copies of my first book through a myriad of marketing initiatives.

How about the social networks?  Which ones do you believe help and which ones do you wish you could avoid?

I use Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and LinkedIn. They all have their pluses and minuses.

Book sales.  Don’t you just love them (or lack of?)?  How are you making the sales happen for you?

I do a marketing related task every day. It’s all about exposure. No one can buy a book they’ve never heard of. So I do everything I can do to help people discover my book. One way to accomplish this has been through giveaways at Goodreads.

What is one thing you’d like to jump on the rooftop and scream about?

I am not a self-published author. I am an independent publisher and author.

Okay, too much sugar for you today!  Here’s a nice cup of Chamomile tea and come on over and sit under the cabana and watch the waves roll in.  Now…can you tell us what you love about being a published author and how all those things above doesn’t matter because it’s all part of the whole scheme of things and you wouldn’t have it any other way?

I never talk about my writing in my work environment. I’ve had a couple of experiences in airports or on the plane where a person would hear my name and then ask me if I was the same person who wrote such and such book. The looks I get from my co-workers after acknowledging that I am the same person is very gratifying. It’s sort of like someone learning that you make records or films in your spare time.

Straight from the Mouth of Jonisha Rios, Author of 'Curse of the Blue Vagina'


Hi all!  I’m a Puerto Rican Latina from the Bronx, not to be confused with the fabulous Jlo although we do share the same size ass.  Very proud of that, can I get “woot woot”!
Okay okay, I’m not actually from the Bronx originally but I did live there for over ten years before I moved to Cali and my name is Jonisha Rios.

 I’m thrilled to be sharing some words of wisdom on my journey from the stage to becoming a published author.   Some would say I did this process backwards. In other words, many writers first have their material in book form before they proceed to have it staged or even filmed. However, for me there was no other way. You see my goal was to have the experience of living these stories and producing them for the stage first.  And in some cases even directing them, and then once I did that, I believed the book would naturally follow.   I took to the stage worked out my material and then, chiseled it into what became “Curse of the Blue Vagina” A collection of two solo-shows transformed into narratives, followed by an ensemble piece I produced and directed. I never set out to “get published” or even “find an agent”, in fact- they found me after I decided to just do it on my own.

When I began this journey almost ten plus years go, I was traveling back and forth from the east coast to the west coast doing show after show and just working to make each one better.  It was my art, my expression. I did it for me and it was a bonus that people came to watch and many enjoyed my pieces. 

If I were to give any advice it would be “If you build it, they will come.” True, you may have heard this old saying time again- only in my case it was exactly what I did.  I was never one to wait for anyone to “open my doors.” So many people out there are waiting for their “Big Break”. But its bullshit, you can’t wait.  If you really want to act, learn how to write and write yourself something. Or hire me to help you.   

I remember I was shooting a movie in Italy and one of the actresses scoffed at me when she read the beginnings of my works that eventually became the material I used for my book. She said “Oh you do stand up? And solo-shows? You aren’t a talent.” Mind you I was starring in the movie she helped me get a role in. It was so odd.  I will never forget how rude she was. But I didn’t let her get me down, because I was clear.  So rule number: Be Clear about your gift and don’t allow anyone to bring you down, what they think of you and is not your concern, its their problem.  Stay focused. Thank God I felt sorry for her and kept on going. A few years later not only did my shows become successful, but I landed two TV series, sold a screenplay, directed countless commercials and was paid big bucks to help others create their own solo-shows.  And that same girl eventually reached out to me for advice later on.  No hard feelings, glad I inspired her. My point is, I knew where I was headed and didn’t let anything or anyone stop me.

To be clear, I didn’t do it to prove the haters wrong – and that’s a very important message from me to you. Do it because you love it and what you create is your passion. Period. No one can stop you from doing what you are meant to do, because if you are destined to do it. 

They say it’s always important to do that which makes you afraid. And for me that thing was stand up comedy.  In fact before I took the stage as a stand up comedian I actually did solo shows first to be able to conquer that fear. It was difficult to go from elaborate monologues to short set up punches –but I did it.  Was it easy? —Hell to the no! But I did it.  So do what scares you. Create your bucket list.
Now that I’m a mom and a little older wiser, I have really taken to writing.  No need to be on stage anymore.  I conquered that fear and moved on.  Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t necessarily turn down a role on Broadway; however, I am at peace with writing and creating new stories with characters that make me laugh. 

Ok enough with the inspirational pep talk, here are some hardcore rules.  Hire a book formatter ASAP.  For me formatting was an absolute nightmare that took way longer than it needed to.  Mainly because I wrote my book in "Word" which apparently is a pain to format.  The thing is, once I got the book formatted properly, errors jumped out at me that I never noticed after having the book copy edited several times.  I was shocked and annoyed and it was a very expensive process to fix.  So when your manuscript is complete have it checked several times by many different people  for 1) grammar, 2) spelling, 3) spacing, 4) indents—the works- get it proofed for everything again and again before you get into formatting so that when you convert the file you don’t need to fix a thing.  I tell you this because the formatters will make errors – so long as its theirs and not yours those are easy to find and free to fix.

Get professional photos taken, I had nothing because after I had given birth my focus was my son and at almost 200 pounds going from a sassy size 2 to a 10 plus… meat I didn’t want to take photos and frankly I didn’t care – being a mom was a dream just like being an artist was so I was fine with my weight.  The thing is I had no pro shots. So the photo I used in the back of my book, although I love it, it was a photo shoot from when my baby was teeny.  Hey it worked but now I need to do a photo shoot to get some new press photos - be prepared.

Have different readers read your stories.  Meaning don’t just go to readers that are your typical audience branch out, the notes I received from so many different people early on was invaluable because they were all from completely different walks of life and had different perspectives. 

Finally, once your have proofed and had others read your stories and once you feel the project is done-- move on.  Tell people who have more things to say or more notes to give “Thanks but this book is officially done, but I so appreciate your advice and will consider it for my next book.” This is so important, why? Because you are an artist and because as a writer especially a self-pub writer, you can write and re-write to death.  Believe me this book took 8 years to complete.  Yup, you heard that, 8 years! And it’s a collection of stories.  Don’t do that to yourself.  You want to put your best foot forward, and you also want to appreciate the fact that you have more stories in you – new ones that need to be told.  So when its time to let that go- let it go.  I for one will not be reading my own book again.  I did it, I read it I will produce plays from it but I have moved on.

Anyway, that’s all I got.  My son is finally asleep so that means, I get to have a glass of wine and just chill.  Goodnight! Read my book! Thanks for your support.
