The Power of Podcasts

Filed under: Uncategorized — yourprotagonist @ 10:35 pm

I found this interview on why and how to become a guest podcaster to be helpful for our authors, Lynn Byk, L.L. Larkins, Diane Andrews, and Tonya Blessing. Em, not necessarily the end of the world content, but you know…

Audiobook Creation Exchange Blog (ACX)

Glen Tate published the 10 book 299 Days series in audio back in 2014. Since that time he’s amassed a 4.4 rating over 5,910 reviews. One of Glen’s most effective promotion tactics has been by regularly appearing on podcasts related to his specific “prepper” genre. He’s here today to share his process for booking guest spots to discuss his books on popular podcasts.

I am not a full-time author. I’m an attorney in Olympia, Washington who happened to sit down and write a ten-book post-apocalyptic fiction series called 299 Days. I was surprised to learn about several aspects of publishing and marketing these books—one of which was the power of podcasts to sell books to niche markets.

The author, Glen Tate…?

Like many ACX authors, I don’t have a large marketing budget or a team of people getting me guest spots on media outlets. I have to…

Psalm Hymns: Worship Leader Books 1, 2, & 3

Filed under: Uncategorized — yourprotagonist @ 7:05 am

I had to chuckle when I came to this point in the blog review of our Psalm Hymns book (Volume I) “~ Why Not ~
Those who have no interest in singing, worshiping, or learning more about Psalms in the Bible will not be interested in this book.” Thank you, Conny Withay for this review! Much appreciated!

Psalm-Hymns Worship Leader: Books 1, 2 & 3 (Volume 1)Title: Psalm Hymns: Worship Leader Books 1, 2, & 3
Author: L.L. Larkins
Publisher: Capture Books
ISBN: 978-1517796884

“By reciting or singing these psalms, God makes Himself, His records of testimonies of His deeds more accessible,” L.L. Larkins writes in the introduction of her book, Psalm Hymns: Worship Leader Books 1, 2, & 3 (Volume 1) – Dramatic, Contemplative, Singable, Recitable Psalms!

~ What ~
This two-hundred-and-ninety-page oversized paperback targets those who are seeking a compilation of rewritten psalms from the Bible that are set to the music of famous songs and hymns. By using a plethora of different versions of the Holy Bible, three books in one are included in this series that covers Psalms 1 through 89.

After an introduction and historical uses, the eighty-nine rewritten psalms cover two to eight pages each, ending with the Ten Commandments, author’s biography, and a proposed fifteen-week performance syllabus.

Filed under: Uncategorized — yourprotagonist @ 6:57 am

I greatly appreciate this blogger/reviewer’s recommendation of Capture Books’ first reality-based Appalachian novel about the conditions of many poor Christian women, for Christian women. Thank you, Connie Withay for taking time to give us this review! Tonya absolutely is working on her sequel!

The Whispering of the WillowsTitle: The Whispering of the Willows
Author: Tonya Jewel Blessing
Publisher: Capture Books
ISBN: 978-0-997162547

“Life in the Ashby family seemed especially hard. Where was God love? Auntie Ada told her once to look at the willows – cuz they even praised God,” Tonya Jewel Blessing writes in her novel, The Whispering of the Willows.

~ What ~
This three-hundred-and-ninety-six-page paperback targets those who enjoy historical Christian fiction involving family dynamics and romance. Using one noun that may be considered profanity and slang words, topics of physical and sexual abuse and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. While each chapter begins with an Appalachian folk belief, the ending has a list of the hymns and folksongs of the story’s era as well as eleven discussion questions.

In this tale set in the 1920s in the rural hills of West Virginia, the large Ashby family struggles often running a…

All the Things We Cannot See

As the managing partner of Capture Books, I represent a small publisher’s few authors, listed on www.CaptureBookstore. Our writers’ group decided to take an adventure, a risk, into the middle world between self-publishing and traditional big house publishing. We peeled back layers of our skills to take a look. We looked, felt, smelled and tasted like a group of fine editors, entrepreneurs, comrades, and writers, several of whom had been published, and two of whom could speak publicly. But publishers?  Naaaah….

After a year of marinating, you can find my credits on LinkedIn. How did this happen?

Pooling our resources, we voted on a name and sketched out a plan to duplicate ourselves through hosting and presenting a Golden Writers’ Conference. Since I had the most time on my hands, which I disputed vehemently for the next six months until no-one else stepped up, and since my…
