I keep forgetting about the Author’s Lounge. Does anybody else have that problem? Could it be that we are not accustomed to having a publisher who wants us to succeed? I have spent most of the day today advertising for The Festival of Story Tellers. I will be one of the panelists during the week, although I do not yet know which day nor what the topic will be. I hope a lot of you stop by and see me. I am going to paste in an article I placed on www.writing.com today, Writing.com is one of the sites I use to write.
he Festival of Story Tellers is sponsored by Reader’s Magnet.com and Book Aid International. It runs from April 24-26, 2021 and then again in May. There will be workshops on writing, publishing, editing, and all kinds of stuff. My booth will be available as well where you will see videos of me reading my stories, poetry, etc. I will also have live sessions where I will try to answer questions. Here is a link to my booth: https://www.thefestivalofstorytellers.com/profile/4149/main/
I have also posted articles about Reader’s Magnet and TFOS on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr. I am relatively new to the last three. Search for Marvin Schrebe and Chris Breva as I interchangeably use both. My book Teatime is being published as Chris Breva, which is my legal pen name. I am looking for more social media sites to upload to.
Readers Magnet has taken a lot of heat from certain individuals. My experience with Reader’s Magnet has been nothing but beneficial. I am going to try to insert a picture of my cover design on here. If not you can see it on my booth at the link above. Readers Magnet designed that cover. They are very professional and dedicated to helping us grow as authors. I do not know why some people are so stubborn and vindictive. I could imagine that they were burned by a publisher before and think all publishers are the same. Reader’s Magnet may be young, but the young usually have more energy and work harder. Reader’s Magnet has shown me time and again that they are trustworthy. They have kept every promise. They promised a booth and it is available. They promised a cover design that would please me and they delivered. They have never promised to make my book a smashing success, but they did promise to publish it and present it at TFOS. I did not think they were going to be able to meet that because they have only had a limited time to do so. Despite the short amount of time, I have a professionally designed book cover and booth for TFOS! Again they made a promise and kept it. I do not believe they will let me down in the future either. At Reader’s Magnet their motto is “You approve, we move.”
They have more than lived up to their motto. They have excelled my expectations. Now I hope you will also excel my expectations and visit my booth when TFOS starts. I will be going live from time to answer questions, read excerpts from my book, and do other activities. I may even have a special door prize, such as an autographed copy of “Teatime”! The winner would only cover shipping and handling. So come on out, kick your shoes off, and relax. Enjoy a story or a poem from Teatime and then check out other author’s booths! I know there are many very talented authors presenting at TFOS. I look forward to seeing you at one of my live sessions. Have fun and most of all stay safe.
