* * * Quote of the Week * * *

"No one ever attains very eminent success by
simply doing what is required of him; it is the
amount and excellence of what is over and above
the required that determines the greatness of
ultimate distinction."
—Charles Kendall Adams
1835-1902, Professor of
History and Author

Well, the summer is finally over! Kids are going
back to school, and the weather is turning cool.
I had a wonderful time shooting The
Daughter-in-Law Rules promotional video in New
Town PA last Friday. We shot 6 scenes, one of
which is available to view at:

A big congratulatory shout-out to Amanda Coulter
who just got booked on ABC TV's All My Children,
and will soon be moving to LA to join the cast in it’s
new location. I wrote a tune about my experience
at one of the locations, a wonderful women’s
clothing store called Love Illuminati. And just a
few days ago, a friend asked me to write her a wedding
song, so I put lyrics to the tune.

Love Illuminati

In you I've found a miracle
Something in your eyes has made me wise and
fills me with surprise and...

Now we are a family
Like a bird who's finally flying free, once blind
and now can see, since

I'm with you, no longer blue
You've made my dreams come true

My heart is on a Ferris wheel a roller coaster
ride
Does Tango, Lindy, Swing, Electric Slide

My days are filled with happiness
Now that we're together I'm on fire, like current
through a wire
forever...

Always in my heart
I knew it from the start
A sacred chance at love
A gift from up above
I can't believe it's true
I'm finally here with you

... on our wedding day

For anyone who would like to hear a copy of the
tune, please email me and I’ll send you an mp3.

* * * Stuff I Want You to Know About! * * *

What do SPIDERS, BASEBALL PLAYERS, FISHERMAN
and FARMERS
have to do with becoming a BEST SELLING author?

As the publishing world is changing faster than a
speeding ball of fire, just like the OCEAN and the
BEE, today’s authors have to be prepared to make
WAVES and create their own BUZZ!

Just like the spider weaves a strong web,
today’s author needs to have a great WEBSITE of
their own. And just as the fisherman utilizes good
HOOKS and a large NET, authors too must learn to
come up with timely “hooks” to attract media
attention as well as navigate the ins and outs of
social NET-working!

And… as any good baseball player works to
master his PITCH, so too must today’s author
learn how to successfully pitch the media in order
to gain thousands of dollars in FREE publicity!
And finally, let’s not forget the farmer and
their cows: today’s authors must learn how to
create a PLATFORM and BRAND themselves silly!
