BUILDING A BETTER BOOK BRAND, St. Louis Publisher's Association, ZOOM Workshop, 10/14/20

The one question we get asked the most is: “How do I sell more books?” The tricky part is that you need to ask this question before your book ever gets published. Building your Author Brand Platform is one of the most crucial steps in developing your non-fiction book, yet it usually gets skipped by most authors. In their eagerness to “get published” an author will fast-forward through editing, hire a book designer, and upload their book for publishing before they ever think about selling.

The Author's Journey Podcast



Kim Hudson, FOX NEWS KTVI-2, St. Louis, interviews Cathy about our #1 International Bestseller, "Bright Spots", a compilation anthology with 40 authors from around the world offering motivation and inspiration during the pandemic.

View the 2.5-minute segment here.



One of the early trends of the pandemic was started by a Mom in Brooklyn, NY in response to the early days of social distancing. As a way to help her 4-year-old become more accustomed to not seeing her friends, the Mom would take her daughter on walks and they would search for rainbows.

The idea spread like wildfire across the US and eventually foreign countries . . . there was even a world map (using a GOOGLE program) where you could register your rainbow location in your neighborhood.

Motivated to help spread the rainbows for our youngest neighbors, we created a 10" rainbow across a span of 3 front windows. When we registered our rainbow, we uploaded a photo to their site, and eventually, GOOGLE noticed and asked permission to use it in one of their blogs!

The photo below shows Jack, alongside our dog, Chewy, looking out the upstairs windows at the "little friends" down on the sidewalk.
