On Saturday October 3RD from 3 to 6 P.M. Eastern time, Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing (Author, Blogger, Business Assist) will be putting on a live virtual Zoom event called, An October Book and Business Bonanza!

What will this event be like?

That my friends is going to be totally up to you, but to get you started here is the framework…

  1. On the appointed day and time, we will all gather in the Zoom room which author proofreader and editor Jo Elizabeth Pinto is graciously providing to tell the world all about our books, blogs, or business.
  2. Each participant will be allowed to do a brief presentation about themselves, what they do and how people may buy from or work with them in some way.
  3. After each presentation, the floor will be opened for questions from the audience.
  4. You the participant get to decide how you will present, what you might offer, Etc. Do you want to offer signed copies of your books? If yes, you’ll need to set a price including shipping to those who purchase copies from you. Do you want to offer a discounted or free eBook instead? Again, you’ll need to have a set price and know how that process works before the day of the event. Are you a business owner who offers a specific product or service? Want to offer a gift card or discounted price? Decide how that will work and you’re good to go. In short, whatever you want to offer is one hundred percent up to you.
  5. If you’re not for any reason able to attend, if you work out your details with me ahead of time, I will represent you. Guest participants may have me present on their behalf but the guest registration fee will apply.

***Event scheduling and structure Information.

  1. The event will begin promptly at 3 P.M. and the end time has been changed from 5 P.M. to 6 P.M. Eastern.
  2. Participants will need to gather 15 minutes early at: 2:45 P.M. Eastern for a quick organizational meeting.
  3. Rather than have specific time slots for everyone we’re going to go round robin style, which means I will do a brief opening and then go round the room one at a time allowing each person to present…

Thank you for your participation and have a great day.

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

TMI Tuesday June 2, 2020

Apparently, the TMI Tuesday Blog is back in business. So, here I am with another episode. After you read the questions and my answers, you can find out how to participate.

***

  1. The best part of your job is _____ creating ideas with words on a page, or, in my case, a computer screen.
  2. My favorite quote is _____ “Your grandmother pretends not to know you on Halloween.” This comes from Erma Bombeck and is the inspiration for my novel-in-progress, Grandma Doesn’t Know Me.
  3. The best part of my day is _____ the end when I can relax with a good book, magazine, or podcast.
  4. What is the hardest part of your job? How do you deal with it? The most difficult task related to writing is marketing. However, I’ve hired a wonderful person to help me with that. Patty Fletcher lives in Kingsport, Tennessee, with her retired guide dog, Campbell. She has published two books of her own and is working on a trilogy. Her business, Tell It to the World Marketing, helps authors and businesses with public relations. Click here to learn more.
  5. You must write a “how to guide” about something for which you have expertise. What is this guide about or tell us the title? I don’t write how-to guides. Once in a while, I don’t mind sending instructions to friends on how to use certain technology, but I prefer to write fiction, poetry, and memoirs.

Bonus: What would you name your boat? Believe me. Because of my visual impairment, you wouldn’t want me piloting a boat.

Now, it’s your turn. Click here to learn how you can participate. Alternatively, you can answer one or more of the questions in the comments field below. I look forward to reading your answers. Thank you for stopping by today.

As I hope you know by now, my new novel, The Red Dress, is now available from Amazon and Smashwords. If it isn’t already, it’ll also be available from Apple, Barnes & Noble, and other resources. Smashwords offers books in a variety of accessible formats such as txt or pdf. But for those needing books in Daisy audio or text formats, it’ll eventually be available from Bookshare and through the Utah State Library’s talking book program.

I’m now looking for bloggers interested in featuring my book on their blog. I will provide a wraparound cover and a document containing a synopsis, excerpt, and more. If you’re interested, please use the contact form. I’ll need to know on what date you can post this information and a URL in case I’m not following you. When your feature goes live, I’ll re-blog it. If you’d like to review The Red Dress or interview me on your blog,, please let me know via the contact form, and I’ll send you an electronic copy.

Speaking of electronic copies, I’m giving one away to the first person who can answer this question. In My Ideal Partner, what was my late husband Bill’s favorite baseball team? If you haven’t read My Ideal Partner or need to refresh your memory, you can download it for free from Smashwords until the end of the month.. Once you have the answer, if you’re  the first person to leave it in the comment field for this post, you’ll win a free electronic copy of The Red Dress. Good luck. I look forward to hearing from you.
