New opportunities for authors coming

Yesterday was a very busy day for me out of my office. A lot of the day was done working to build a community service club, then I met with three people in our organization, first with one, then with two more. I got home very late and didn’t get back to the office.

Just about 20 miles from here, in the area I was meeting our associates, one of the biggest outdoor annual music events in the country, Bonaroo, is in progress. This year they feature such groups as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Beach Boys as well as a host of others. Then down the road a bit in Nashville, the CMA Music Fest is on with the Who’s Who of Country Music. Middle Tennessee draws around 200,000 outsiders to the area each June for these similtaneous happenings.

While this excitement is in progress we at St. Clair Publications are planning a little excitement of our own. Kent Hesselbein is working with best-selling local author, Tammy Mentzer Brown, on a pilot program for our offers to other authors. The results are scheduled to be up and running by mid-to-late July. They inviolve individual web site planning and hosting, e-book preperation and sales on the author’s site as well as our site, and trailors with vidoe clips from author talks and other highlights. I will post results here when the test program is up and running. Meantime, grab a steaming cup of java and good book each morning and follow our posts..
