New Children’s Book

The_CashPoint_Kid_-_Vivienne_Neal_2

Vivienne Neale’s, The Cashpoint Kid, is a children’s book about the power and consequences of the choices we make. Can money just appear out of thin air? If it does, what do you do with it? Alex is faced with these questions when his life takes a strange and mysterious turn. He confides in his best friend Mattie to decide how to deal with his new found riches. Alex is usually the one that is mischievous and getting into trouble. However, he notices others are starting to change for the worst around him. This opens his eyes to what is most important to him. He must decide what to do about it.
This story is full of fun and valuable lessons for children. Because of the content, I would recommend it for ages 9-12.

About the Author- Tami A. Goldstein

author[2]

This journey begins with a mother’s love for her daughter…

Heather was diagnosed with High-Functioning Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome just shy of her 13th Birthday. Not long after, her mother, Tami, watched her daughter spiral out of control medically and educationally until she found an occupational therapist who explained how Heather’s Sensory Processing Disorder impacted the Autism.

Knowing that having the right support is key not only to the development of children on the Autism Spectrum, but also to the well-being of their parents, Tami began to tirelessly educate herself in the sciences of: Behavioral Health, Child Psychology, Human Anatomy, Occupational Health, Pharmacology, Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and has been a parent advocate for her daughter since 1997.

Together mother and daughter learned from their OT how a Sensory Diet, CranioSacral Therapy , and Bio-Medical Therapies  can lead to Functioning Recovery. Tami navigated the public school environment and the medical community to get the right support for Heather, who overcame many obstacles. Tami uses this personal experience, extensive knowledge, and dedication to help others learn about and understand the medical and educational aspects of Autism, Autism Spectrum Disorders and SPD. Knowing there is no one-size-fits-all trick, Tami shares her recommendations for other parents as she tells the story of Heather’s Coming Through The Fog.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR – MEGLENA IVANOVA

  • Here is short information about the author, may be it will help you with something.
    MEGLENA IVANOVA – Bulgarian author, blogger and essayist, based in New York, USA
  • What I love most about being a writer:

I love being Writer because I love discovering new worlds and because I love finding out new things about people. Writing, for me, and I know for many of you, is an unparalleled experience. It’s in our blood, haunts our thoughts both waking and dreaming, is a soul-deep drive. And it should be – it is passion that both inspires our work and empowers it. Getting to sit back and have quality time with my subconscious manifestations brings the writing to life. Sure, the character doesn’t exist for real, but for writers they do and in deeper ways then the people we know in real life because characters can’t hide their truths from us if we take the time to seek them.

  • What inspired me to write my book:

Years ago in Silistra, Bulgaria, I was given a Moonstone by a friend who told me it was the stone of tenderness, an amulet of protection for travelers, a gift of lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy, and a path to wisdom. When I was writing The Legend of The Moonstone, I drew on numerous sources of inspiration. First there were the stones themselves. Beyond the stones, the novel was also informed by legends. Some of those influenced the book very directly while others simply reside on the bulletin board above my desk, my writing companions, as it were. Writing about The Moonstone was a great adventure.

The Book is written with great respect for the stone itself and with an understanding that the power is not just in the stone, it is in the people who possess it too. Of the end of the first book of my teen fiction trilogy, I realized that stones are as individual and unique as we are. A great deal of what anyone perceives in a stone – beyond its geologic origins and specific mineralogical properties – is intuitive rather than definitive, and specific to the stone itself.

2013 Book of the year winner with Readers Favorite: http://readersfavorite.com/book-review/8769
I remember when I was publishing my first book. I fantasized about being on Oprah. I dreamt about making the New York Times Best-Sellers List, and in my head the sky was the limit. One thing I didn’t think about was…How would people discover that my book was out there? Every author has that dream of being extremely successful with their book. Everyone wants to be the next Stephenie Meyer or E.L. James. A writer can have the talent, but to make it to that next level you need more than talent alone, especially if you’re self published. If we can’t solely rely on talent, what more can we do? Promotion is highly essential to the success of a book.
Why is Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey so successful? Not only do people find their books entertaining, but they are heavily marketed and talked about. When I wrote my first book “Times Have Changed and Life is Strange” (Shameless plug-in. I know, but it serves a purpose, bare with me. LOL) I didn’t have a plan. I didn’t know what else to do besides getting my friends and family to buy it and pray that they spread the word. The first piece of advice that I can share is to have a plan. You need to know what you’re going to do besides getting your friends and family to support it. You need to know how much you are willing to spend to get the word out on your book. For me, my second time around with my first novel “Monster” (Shameless plug-in #2, I’m on a roll!!! LOL) I wanted and still want to this day to make this book super successful. I want the world to read this book, and I’m willing to pay whatever is necessary to make that happen. It was never about the money for me. To me, I believe my book can change lives and the world, and I want to see my book do that for people.
Now, getting to the important tips. One of the most effective ways to get your book known is through book reviews. Here, you have to do your research. You have to find out if the reviewer reads your genre because if you give your book to any random reviewer, chances are they will not like it and leave a less favorable review. Some will say that reviews are not important, but they are. If you see a book that is getting favorable reviews, chances are you will check it out to see what all the talk is about. While good reviews are great, you want quality reviews. YOU NEVER WANT TO PAY FOR POSITIVE REVIEWS. Take pride in your work. If you get a positive review, know that you got that review because a person was really feeling your work. Some reviewers also do interviews. I recommend doing all types of interviews. You want to get your name out there and reach as many people as you can. You never know who is reading or listening (Some reviewers are on Blogtalk Radio which is a great tool and an awesome experience) to interviews that you’re doing.
Another effective tip, search for book clubs. Book clubs are great because you can get a lot of people to read your book (and possibly leave reviews) all at once. I must warn you, not everyone in the book club may like your book. Book clubs have members with different likes and personalities. There is no guarantee that everyone will care for your book. You have to take the good with the bad. With the book clubs that I have had the pleasure of working with, I like to talk to the members of the group over skype. It allows for the book club to really get to know you and ask questions. I feel it enhances the experience for the readers. Book clubs also help with word of mouth. If lots of clubs are reading your book and enjoying it, they are going to talk( they will talk whether they like it or dislike it, but let’s think positive.)
Another effective strategy is advertising and promotion. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many promoters on Facebook, and I can honestly say if it weren’t for them constantly promoting my book throughout various groups for me, I wouldn’t have had the success I’ve had with “Monster”. Again, you have to research to find a promoter for your genre. You also have to assess to see if it’s in your budget to constantly run promotions. Facebook has millions of people on it. If you can reach a fraction of those people, then you’ll be a success which leads me to my next strategy, fan pages.At first, I made the mistake of having an author page and a book page. While having a book page is cool, you only need the author page. The author page is beneficial because you can post info for all of your books compared to a book page where you’re only talking about one of them. An author page allows you to reach lots of people, and you can advertise certain posts to expand your reach. People like what other people like, so you want to gain lots of “likes” for your page. Post things you enjoy, post quotes, post pictures thanking your fans for the support. Show the readers who you are as a person. It is important to be active and do more than just advertise your books. You want people to see that you’re human, and not just a person looking to sell them a book. Which brings me to another helpful tool, blogging.Some people aren’t fans of blogging. I find it cool because I feel people can see my true self in the blogs. Blogging gives me the opportunity to vent or to talk strongly about topics I’m passionate about. It’s also another way to gain fans and potential sales.

In conclusion, if you wrote a book because you planned on getting rich off it, you need to rethink your reasoning. Write a book because you need to write it. Write it because in your heart and soul you know (not think, know) that the story you have needs to be told. If everything is done correctly, with word of mouth, fan pages, blogging, promotions, interviews, family, friends, and co-worker support, etc, your book should do well. A big part of your success is YOU! Nothing is going to come easy. You have to work hard and want that success. Do what’s in your means,and make your dreams come true.
