    RenWomen Among Us: Linda Hollander

    in Books

    Linda Hollander is a businesswoman, speaker, author, and the industry leader in teaching entrepreneurial women about small business success and how to get corporate sponsors.  She has over 20 years of experience in business, corporate sponsorships, sales, marketing, design, promotion and creating lifetime customers.  She is the founder of Women's Small Business Month and the Women’s Small Business Expo, which takes place every year in Los Angeles, California and has received the Caught in the Act of Excellence Award.  
    Linda is sometimes known as the "Wealthy Bag Lady." She started out worse than broke. She was buried in debt and couldn’t find a way out of the poverty trap. Then she and her best friend, Sheryl Felice, launched a packaging business which sells custom-printed shopping bags to leading-edge companies. Linda devised a sales and marketing plan which made the fledgling business profitable in a very short amount of time. Some of her clients include Disney, Cisco Systems, Mattel, Universal Studios, Nissan, Yamaha, Sony, Revlon, Sanyo, and Avery Dennison.
    As revenues for the company increased every year, she met entrepreneurial women, understood what motivates them and how she could increase their success. She wrote the book, Bags to Riches: 7  SuccessSecrets for Women in Business and launched a career as an international speaker and sponsorship expert.  She is the president of the International Sponsorship Association. 
    Linda is a great example of the RenWomen traits of risk taking, the urge to grow and expand, learning from failure, and creative problem solving.

    Author Interview: Steve Atkinson - A Memoir of the Vietnam Years

    in Books

    "Steve Atkinson has performed a minor miracle with his memoir, 'In Liberating Strife: A Memoir of the Vietnam Years.' He has humped the same path as David Maraniss did in his prize-winning 'They Walked in Sunlight: War and Peace, Vietnam and America, October 1967.' Maraniss, a stellar reporter for the Washington Post, focused on one battle in Vietnam that October and the burgeoning antiwar movement at the University of Wisconsin. Steve Atkinson shifts the American perspective to Minnesota, where he was a university student. What sets Steve's book off from Maraniss's and others is that he was in-country in Vietnam for a year and writes from ground zero. In compelling, colorful detail, Steve lets us into his inmost thoughts and feelings. He does this through remarkable reporting, both by himself and his wife Bev. He saved their letters from their courtship during his two-year absence, half of it in Vietnam. From their literate correspondence, we can learn to be English majors. Steve captures the ordeal Bev and his own family endured back home as he grew into a unique manhood in various danger zones in Vietnam. This is a book for ordinary people--the kind who forged some connection with the Vietnam War, Americans who have served since and--perhaps most important--reaching out to civilians who must still decide how they feel about boots on the sand in Iraq and Afghanistan."
    --Mike Tharp, correspondent and bureau chief with the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Far Eastern Economic Review, U.S. News & World Report, People Magazine and as a freelancer for AARP publications. He was a soldier in Vietnam and received an Honorable Discharge and a Bronze Star. As a civilian he has covered six other wars.

    Robin Leigh Anderson is My Guest Author on November 7th

    in Books

    Futuristic sci-fi at its finest! Don't miss November 7th when I'll be hosting Robin Leigh Anderson. She'll be reading from Suncatcher. * * *
    In the far future Terran asteroid miner Lt. Ard Jay Solstad crash-lands on a faraway unknown planet during a meteor storm and must survive for at least three months before the signal buoy can reach someone to dispatch rescue.  Ard is stunned to meet the last survivor of the planet, a silicon-based humanoid who looks like the stained glass suncatcher he had in his window as a child.  Despite the odds they fall in love as they both try to survive on what they can glean from his ship---glass for her---and carbon-based foods for him from the planet.  But, facing almost certain death as she cannot physically leave her planet, Ard must leave her behind when the droid ship arrives to rescue him.
    Three years later now Captain Solstad returns with a full complement of miners for the lucrative claim that basically gives him the planet, and settlers to repopulate the empty planet…to find his beloved wife alive, and his SON, half Terran and half Preth.  TeeCee’s and their son’s telepathic abilities aid in the investigation of colony bigots and prevent tragedy, while the community and the surviving Preth come to terms with their existence and their changed world.  Ard’s able efforts, together with his trusted Commissioner of Police Jameson, to establish a generational world for the Terrans and the remaining Preth, bring Ard to a stunning point in the evolution of humanity.
