"Talk Radio Advocate" Francine Silverman is a multi-published author, publicist, newsletter editor, and radio host. She is also author of 16 ebooks of talk radio shows, ranging from animals to sports.
Prior to writing books, Fran was a newspaper reporter at Gannett Newspapers and a freelance writer. As a publicist, she gets her clients on radio shows, both on the internet and on the air.
In this episode host Nanci Arvizu talks with author and book promotion guru, Carolyn Howard-Johnson.
A little about Carolyn - Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s several careers prepared her for promoting her own books and those of others. She was the youngest person ever hired as a staff writer for the Salt Lake Tribune—“A Great Pulitzer Prize Winning Newspaper”—where she wrote features for the society page and a column under the name of Debra Paige. That gave her insight into the needs of editors, the very people authors must work with to get free ink. Being familiar with the way news is handled helps her see how different books fit into different news cycles.
Tomorrow is not promised...
This week we were scheduled to interview Mrs. Ginny Robertson, founder of On Purpose Networking for women, a friend and inspiration to many. Ginny could not be with us today due to the unexpected passing of her friend and assistant, Nancy Daniel. There are so many wonderful things we could all say about Nancy, her warm heart, always smiling. I am asking the listeners of our show to send prayers to the family and to Ginny Robertson during their time of grief. In place of the interview, with the holidays not being far off, we will air a show from earlier this year with Kim Johnson teaching us how to get a handle on debt. Thank you...
