From Publish America...

Dear author:

This is going to be

your year on TV

as an Amazon bestselling author.


We will get you on TV in this new year.

Because your book will hit the Amazon bestsellers list this new year.

And we're not kidding.

Our marketing team has figured out how to get you there. Once you reach that coveted bestseller status, the doors to TV studios will swing wide open. In fact, we'll open them for you!

To give you an idea of the company you'll keep: today's bestsellers list on Amazon includes Steve Job's biography, Stephen King's "11/22/63", John Grisham's "The Litigators", Tim Tebow's "Through My Eyes", and Joel Osteen's "Every Day a Friday".

After attending conventions, book fairs, and seminars all over the world this past year, we have worked out a way to achieve book sales success, and to combine it with exposure on TV. It takes considerable effort and manpower on our end, so we must limit the number of authors and books we can push really hard, but: put us to work!

Here is a link useful for writing articles...

Signed Contract

Today I signed the contract for my fourth traditionally published book. Professional Parenting will be available some time next year. I will keep you updated. I will be very busy writing this book within the next six months. Please allow more response time than usual. I will also be going on a book tour soon. If you have any questions about books or the tour visit Purple Tree Paperless Press on Facebook...

Myself or one of the admin will be more than happy to assist you...

God bless you all and happy holidays... :) xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Excellent news... :) xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Dear author:

You are the expert.

What is it that you do for a living? Or for a long-held hobby? If it's anything that you have spent 10,000 hours or more on over your lifetime, you're an expert.

How many is ten thousand hours? Anything you have done an average two hours a day for thirteen or more years. Anything you have done eight hours a day for between three and four years. That makes you an expert. And yes, that includes parenting.

Expertise is not so much a matter of brilliance as it is of practice. In his book Outliers, bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell discovered that only dogged practice generates expertise and success. Look it up online; he has spectacular examples.

Brendon Burchard made it to the top of the New York Times bestsellers list by making the exact same case in The Millionaire Messenger: everyone is an expert in something, and it's marketable.

For your expertise, there's a market. People want to hear about it and they want to benefit from it.

Talk to us about your particular expertise, write it down, and we will publish it. For totally free, as always.

Don't be shy about what you're good at. If it's something you have done for so long already, by now you may not even realize that it has made you an expert. Don't keep what you're really good at hidden from the world. Share it. Become other people's guiding light. With a book in your hand, written by you about your strength, you'll open totally new doors.

Thank you, expert!

It isn't every day that someone gets this opportunity. It has been a lot of hard work and determination. I am so thankful to God for blessing me... :) xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Campfire Klingons :)

Our traditional family recipe for campfire fun is your choice of hotdog without a bun. Whether you choose turkey or beef is up to you. Roast them like marshmallows do. You can use a wire coat hanger or a stick, either or will do the trick. When the roasting is through, balance a slice of cheese on the meat. Then slowly rock your stick for a tasty treat. The cheese should cling neatly around the meat. Klingons are fictional villains alright to eat...

Thank you Canada! You are loved... :) xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Dear author:

We came to the Frankfurt Book Fair with many hundreds of books. They made our promotion booth look gorgeous all week!

Well, together you and we must have done a good job.

We can hardly believe it: today, on the show's final day, at this hour most books are gone! Taken home by eager foreign publishers for further review!

One can never predict to what country any given book will appeal most, so we were especially thrilled to see a small army of Canadian foreign rights buyers descend upon our booth yesterday. It seemed as if they all had decided that Saturday would be PublishAmerica Day for Canada's publishers!

One Canadian after another came to ask about our children's picture books, works about health, nature, history, general fiction, books for ages 6-15, romance, fantasy & scifi.

They want details this week. Canada's publishers have demanded that we submit books to them, as many as we can, for publication/distribution in English and/or French.

Canada. Of course!

Good News... :)

Dear author:

As the Frankfurt Book Fair is approaching its closing days, record numbers of authors are counting their lucky stars. Translation rights have changed hands at a brisk pace, and, frankly, for good money. Nobody reveals the true numbers on these foreign rights contracts, but the buzz on the floor is that a good many authors earned six-figure numbers this week. No big names, and no big book titles, but that's what's so nice about it. An unknown author whose book is 'discovered' at the right moment can make it big, arguably more so than in the past because so many more unknown authors now have an opportunity to be read, and that includes authors such as yourself.

As we indicated earlier this week, the e-book phenomenon is decidedly low-key in Frankfurt. To understand this, one must realize that the rest of the world has seen no competition between two giants on the level of a Barnes and Noble and Amazon. That competition, more than anything else, drove the development and release of two highly competent e-readers in the US, the Kindle and the Nook, which, in turn, had an ever larger consumer audience starting to buy e-books as soon as last year's holidays sales season began.

In the absence of this, Europe has not yet warmed to e-books. That will certainly change now that the Kindle is becoming available in different languages, together with a Kindle store of their own, but we won't see the real effects of this until sometime next year. That's why most experts in Frankfurt are holding their breath: everyone is curious to see how fast and how sky-high the e-book will take off on this continent. Most people agree that there's every reason for hopes to soar.

PublishAmerica has had a really good week in Frankfurt, with lots of traffic to our promotion booth, and interest from publishers from a record number of countries. Today was another truly busy day, and as we tallied the countries of origin of the publishers and agencies that came to introduce themselves, we noticed that we had never been contacted by so many different publishers from so many different countries.

We were especially gratified to hear from a major German literary agent. He stopped by and asked for a list of books that he wants to be able to consider, with a right of first refusal. We're informing you about this in a separate message, it's that promising.

The Fair ends on Sunday. You will receive a final update once our delegation has returned and a full "impact assessment" has been made.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you to the whole world, especially the United States of America and Canada. :) xoxo

To whom it may concern,
Though not all the people in these pictures are related to me directly, they are all my family and I love them all. Thank you all for your love! :)
Not everyone has a large family. Especially not me. Though it is my hope that you will all be brothers and sisters to me, or at least some kind of family...


Lori :) xoxo

P.S. I love you all! :) xoxo

Does anyone remember Big Wheels?

In regards to The $19K Dilemma by Keith Easthouse Independent Staff Writer I would like to say the following.

Keith stated "He called his daughter who urged him to keep it." I told my father who is hundreds of miles away; I didn't want to know about it. I also said, "I'm sure you'll do the right thing." That was not mentioned. When you are suffering and sad it is hard to hear about that kind of money. However, I would rather be poor than evil.

I love my parents and have watched them suffer due to lack all my life. The article painted me to be the bad gal. I'm not. Cannabis is legal for some people in certain states. I don't deal drugs. I'm broke. If I were a drug dealer, I wouldn't be broke. I have a family, a life, and a brain. I know Betsy Ross wasn't president. She should have been. There are women older than me who use Cannabis regularly. Gossip is also a sin. The first thing I would do is end prohibition with the legalization of Cannabis for adults. Perhaps then good people would not be treated as criminals for avoiding arthritis or cancer. I have an honest family and we do not deserve slander. Seriously, what would Jesus do?

Thank you Band! :)

Our only son is performing again tonight for the second time with Intermediate Band for under privileged, starving children in Africa raising funds for a wonderful organization called World Vision. We are very pleased with his heart towards others to be donating his talent for a good cause. Our family agrees... xoxo :) 1-13-11

Autobiography :)

Dear author:

Have you considered writing your autobiography? You are an established author. We want to publish the story about your life.

We are offering you a contract for your memoirs.

You may already have included personal material in your previous book. That's normal and natural, many authors do this. What it says, among many other things, is that you have a colorful personal history to draw from. It's a history you'll want to preserve for future generations. Books carry that legacy far into the future.

We understand that the book is not yet written. Once we have the contract taken care of, you have up to 180 days to write it; that's six months.

We are looking forward to publishing your autobiography!

PublishAmerica Acquisitions Department.

The autobiography is due in February.
I am honored they inquired.

Here is the key to add my blog to your website...
