Author Rob Riley Talks to @BookGoodies About Writing

Author Rob Riley joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to talk about his book, how he choose a publisher, his writing style and tips for writers.


Author Bio:
I live with my wife, Mary Lynne, in southeastern Wisconsin. I spent thirty-two years as a Milwaukee police officer: Seven years doing undercover narcotics investigations and twenty-two years as a major crimes detective. Writing and reading have been lifelong passions; I began by writing short stories more than thirty years ago. Of course, police work provided both the insight and inspiration for my PI mystery novel, Portrait Of Murder. Two additional novels that feature my main character, Private Investigator Jack Blanchard, have been completed.

Author of Short Scripts Genevieve Sipperley Interview with @BookGoodies

Author Genevieve Sipperley joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney to talk about books, writing and current projects.

From Genna:
I was born and raised in Alaska. My town, called North Pole, was pretty small and I spent many nights writing away in my room as I watched snow fall outside my window. When I was younger, I started off writing mostly poetry and short stories. I was first nationally published when I was 16 and my first volume of poetry was published when I was 18. I had some minor success as a poet and short story writer, but after I graduated high school and left home for Chicago, I went to film school and that is when I knew I wanted to make the transition to screenwriting. During film school I studied Motion Picture and Television Screenwriting and I’ve been writing screenplay and scripts full-time ever since. I’ve sold a handful of short scripts and currently have a feature script being optioned.

“Lights, Camera – Wait, What?” is more than just a book of short scripts. There are notes on filmmaking that are ideal for new or independent filmmakers, as well as a quick guide on how to read a script. This book is filled with screenplays to film, scripts to read as short stories, or notes to use as a guide when writing or filming a script. Enjoy all of the different genres, characters, and ideas in this book of collected original short screenplays.

Interview with Travel Memoir Author Jill Dobbe

Author Jill Dobbe joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to talk about writing her fascinating travel memoir.

Here-We-Are-exterior-ver1JPG
Who says you can’t travel with kids? Dan and I find out we can do just that as we set off with our two very young kids, first to live and work on an island far out in the Pacific, then on to the continent of Africa with a few stops in between. Armed with strollers, diapers, and too much luggage, we travel to over twenty-five countries throughout a ten year span, while working together as international overseas educators.

After surviving typhoon Yuri, almost being mauled by lions, and, nearly being shot by a presidential guard, we happily endure all of the good times and bad, while living life to the fullest. A decade’s worth of experiences and lifelong memories remain with us, as we return to the U.S., now with two teenagers in tow, and begin to experience our very own version of reverse culture shock.

Author Bio:
Since writing HERE WE ARE & THERE WE GO, her first memoir about her travels, Jill has lived in Cairo, Egypt; Gurgaon, India; and Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where she now resides with her husband, Dan. Jill continues to work as an elementary administrator and writes on the side. She and Dan have weekly chats with their kids, who now as adults, can’t seem to stop traveling either. Her daughter graduates college soon and will travel to Honduras to teach. Her son is currently away at his first year of medical school. Every June, they travel from their separate locations and meet up together again, at their home on a lake in Wisconsin.

Wrestler Richie Frieman Talks About Writing Children's Books

Author Richie Frieman joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to discuss writing, publishing and all things book related.

Bio From Amazon Profile:
A Modern Day Renaissance Man, Richie Frieman has had a career spanning everything from professional artist, to columnist, to journalist, entrepreneur, inventor and even professional wrestler. With the release of Terple, Frieman is quickly becoming one of the most poetic and talented voices in children’s literature today. “Terple – Always Dream Bigger” (Trust Your Cape Publishing) is the follow up to Frieman’s 2008 release, “Terple – The Sky Is Just The Start”.

“Terple – Always Dream Bigger” is a winner of The 2012 Gelett Burgess Children’s Book Award for Best Poetry and Rhyme book, as well has been awarded the Literary Classics Seal of Approval. An avid philanthropist, Frieman uses Terple to give back to those in need by offering a portion of his profits from his book sales (for the life of it) to a different charity every month.

Believing that every great idea starts with a pen, paper and a vision, Frieman launched his award winning internet magazine The Pen’s Eye View (www.PensEyeView.com) on April 1, 2007. To date, PensEyeView.com has featured over 1,000 consecutive interviews with a different artist, musician, and visionary from all over the globe – a different one every 48 hours – from emerging artists to Grammy winners.

Frieman was awarded a Laureate medal at the 2008 Computerworld Honors Program (formerly known as the Smithsonian Award). He is the youngest recipient of this award and PensEyeView.com is the smallest company to ever have this honor bestowed on them.

Frieman is also known as The Modern Manners Guy for QuickAndDirtyTips.com (Macmillan Publishing) – a humorous weekly column and podcast about manners and etiquette. Inventing and entrepreneurship has also been one of Frieman’s passions, having launched his revolutionary fashion accessory called Collar Keeps which helps eliminate the fly away collar on dress shirts. He is also the Co-Founder of Charm City Babies, a vintage rock n’ roll, pop culture inspired baby clothing line.

Along with Frieman’s work in the arts, he has been known as the professional wrestler, “The Thrill From Israel” Buster Maccabi since 2000, having won more than a dozen titles in various federations throughout the country. Please visit www.RichieFrieman.com and on Twitter @RichieFrieman

The Antianxiety Food Solution – How the Foods You Eat Can Help you Calm Your Anxious Mind, Improve Your Mood and End Cravings by Trudy Scott

AntianxietyFoodSolutionMECH.indd

What inspired you to write your book?
I am so am passionate about what I do because I used to suffer terribly from anxiety, unexplained fears, waking with a sense of doom and even panic attacks – and I have used gluten elimination, and the amazing healing powers of foods and nutrients to completely heal. I want to share the powerful food mood connection with everyone!

About your Book:
It’s remarkable how much the foods we eat can impact our brain chemistry and this book will show you how to calm your anxious mind one meal at a time. In The Antianxiety Food Solution, you’ll find four unique antianxiety diets designed to help you address nutritional deficiencies that may be at the root of your anxiety and enjoy the many foods that foster increased emotional balance. You’ll soon be on the path to freeing yourself from anxiety—and enjoying an improved overall mood, better sleep, fewer cravings, and optimal health—the natural way!

Cuisine Style or Food Genre
Self-help: real whole quality food

Sample Recipe or Food Advice
For a great mood eat quality grass-fed red meat as part of a real whole foods diet. Grass-fed red meat contains amino acids, zinc, iron and good levels of omega-3s – all of which are so crucial for improving both anxiety and depression.
It’s important for you to figure out if you may have issues with gluten. If you are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease then you must eliminate gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye and barley (and even be careful with oats). This means no bread, pasta, cakes, cookies and the avoidance of processed foods which often contain wheat. The effects of gluten can vary for each individual. Some people have digestive issues like bloating or constipation or stomach pain. Others can have mood problems like anxiety, social phobia, depression and mood swings.

What formats are your books in
eBook, Print, Both

How do you see writing a food/cookbook as different from writing other genres of books?
Research, research, research. I am a self-confessed research nerd and loved this aspect of the book writing process.

What advice would you give to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a food book or cookbook
Writing a book has been fabulous for increasing my credibility, extending my reach and growing my business. It’s the best thing I ever did! However the actual writing of the book is just one part of being an author. Other parts are marketing, blogging, doing an online newsletter, live speaking, radio and TV interviews, traditional media and more. Be prepared for the whole deal.

How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
My book was published by New Harbinger. I was doing a presentation at a nutrition conference and an acquisitions editor in the audience asked me afterwards if I’d like to write a book for them. It was a fantastic opportunity.


Author Bio:
I am a Food-Mood expert and nutritionist. I educate women about real whole food and finding natural solutions for anxiety and stress, depression and other mood problems. I am so am passionate about what I do because I used to suffer terribly from anxiety, unexplained fears, waking with a sense of doom and even panic attacks – and I have used gluten elimination, and the amazing healing powers of foods and nutrients to completely heal. I am author of The Antianxiety Food Solution – How the Foods You Eat Can Help you Calm Your Anxious Mind, Improve Your Mood and End Cravings (June 2011, New Harbinger).

I am immediate past president of National Association of Nutrition Professionals and now Special Advisor to the board of directors. I also present nationally to mental health practitioners on food and mood, sharing all the recent research and how-to steps for implementing changes

Marie Ruediger Author Interview With @BookGoodies


Author Marie Ruediger joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to discuss how Marie wrote and published her current book.


From Marie:
I’m a military veteran’s wife, and my new book is entitled FROM GUAM TO CROWN CITY CORONADO (THANKS TO HERMANN, MISSOURI): A JOURNEY IN POESY, which is now available in hardcover, ebook, and soft cover at:
Xlibris
I chose to self-publish because I felt that would be the best way to first get started in the industry, so as to get my name “out there.” For my next book, I’m looking into submitting it to a traditional publisher to improve chances with marketing and also to have the stability of an advance.

Bio:
Mariecor Ruediger is a military veteran’s wife, and lives with her husband, their two children, and family pets in California. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the Honors Program of Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA), and a Master of Science degree in Organizational Leadership from National University of La Jolla, CA. Ever the adventuress, Mariecor has bungee-jumped in Australia, skydove twice (on Guam USA and on Oahu), gone hot-air ballooning in California, and visited every major US military aviation museum. She also completed her first marathon in 2006 on Oahu, and quite enjoys family vacations with her husband, their children, and their family pets.

Joseph Picard Author Interview

Sci-fi author Joseph Picard joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to discuss his journey from writer to publication as well as his current projects.


From Joseph:
I’ve been fumbling with self-pub for roughly a decade, when it was becoming apparent I had a novel on my hands. After looking into (but venturing into) the tedium of submitting to traditional publishers, self-pub seemed the way to go. But of course, it’s not all simple, and there’s a lot of scams (and plain bad deals) out there to avoid.

I was lucky enough to have a skillset (graphic arts, photoshop, patience for general computer BS) that allowed me to get most of what needed to be done on my own, and am working on my fourth book.

Maryann Reid Author and Entrepreneur Interview with @BookGoodies

Author Maryann Reid joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney to talk about books, writing and current projects.

Award-winning author (St. Martins Press) and entrepreneur Maryann Reid has been featured by countless media outlets including USA Today, Essence, Glamour, The CBS Early Show, and The Wendy Williams Experience.

Maryann’s first book Sex and the Single Sister: 5 Novellas was published by St. Martins Press when she was just 25 years old. At that time, Maryann had no idea that a few stories she wrote in her journal would become characters and later become a book. But she quickly learned the power of the media and pop culture influence on publishers and their decision-making. Because of the popularity of HBO’s Sex and The City, she hit the zeitgeist she sold her first book without it being finished. She signed her first book deal with St. Martins and the strong support of a stellar agent.

Elizabeth Dudak Author Interview with @BookGoodies

Author Elizabeth Dudak joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney for an interview about her current book, how she got started and advice for new authors.

Elizabeth Dudak lives in a tiny suburb (more of a town) outside of Chicago, with her husband, Peter; children, Leah and Matthew; mutt, Jordan; and mini-zoo of critters. She was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago where she learned the love of writing and reading from her English-teacher father and bookworm mother. She has written opinion-oriented columns for local newspapers for over four years, and in her blog, Write Where I Belong, she writes on the ramblings of her active mind. What the Heck, Dec?! is Elizabeth’s first novel, and it is proof that she subscribes to the first rule of writing, which is to write what you know.

M.J. Rose Author and eBook Pioneer Talks with @BookGoodies

Author M.J. Rose joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney to talk about books, writing and current projects.

She is a founding member and board member of International Thriller Writers and the founder of the first marketing company for authors: AuthorBuzz.com. She runs two popular blogs; Buzz, Balls & Hype and Backstory.

Getting published has been an adventure for Rose who self-published Lip Service late in 1998 after several traditional publishers turned it down. Editors had loved it, but didn’t know how to position it or market it since it didn’t fit into any one genre.

Frustrated, but curious and convinced that there was a readership for her work, she set up a web site where readers could download her book for $9.95 and began to seriously market the novel on the Internet.

After selling over 2500 copies (in both electronic and trade paper format) Lip Service became the first e-book and the first self-published novel chosen by the LiteraryGuild/Doubleday Book Club as well as being the first e-book to go on to be published by a mainstream New York publishing house.

Rose has been profiled in Time magazine, Forbes, The New York Times, Business 2.0, Working Woman, Newsweek and New York Magazine.

Rose has appeared on The Today Show, Fox News, The Jim Lehrer NewsHour, and features on her have appeared in dozens of magazines and newspapers in the U.S. and abroad, including USAToday, Stern, L’Official, Poets and Writers and Publishers Weekly.

Rose graduated from Syracuse University and spent the ’80s in advertising. She was the Creative Director of Rosenfeld Sirowitz and Lawson and she has a commercial in the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

She lives in Connecticut with Doug Scofield, a composer, and their very spoiled dog, Winka.
