by Soltreu Garrett Life is a fascinating journey filled with lessons to be learned, love to be had, and wisdom to be gained.

Danyell "Soltreu" Garrett, Novelist

I recall from watching early episodes of American Idol (No, I'm not a fan) the show would put on all those people who could not sing. And I remember telling others, you couldn't pay me a million dollars to get in front of a national audience and embarrass myself like that. I used to say [...]

7 Ways Friends Can Support Your Book (and How to Ask for Their Help)

Posted: 22 Jan 2012 06:00 PM PST

Courtesy of Build Book Buzz I recently read an article that detailed seven ways people could support their author friends. It was well-done and offered the type of specific information I'm always looking for, but honestly, it felt a little…well…self-centered. I mean, really, am I supposed to expect my friends to ask me how they [...]

I wrote a book a few years ago that was basically a comical gay travel memoir of Tokyo. After finishing a first draft of the manuscript, [...]

Saturday Night Poetry Reading Wows Listeners At Eric's I've Been Framed

Posted: 22 Jan 2012 09:45 AM PST

To say that "Eric's I've Been Framed" is an oasis in an urban jungle would be an understatement in my opinion. This little known gem in the black community houses some of the best art and memorabilia in Detroit that chronicles the black experience. Among its many gems is a framed copy of an original [...]

30 Day Notice – More Than Just a Book Signing

Posted: 22 Jan 2012 09:30 AM PST

"I lived in a house where there were no guns that I could see, how quick and easy that would've been. I remember feeling so alone. I couldn't tell my friends about what was going on inside of me; I couldn't even explain it to myself. All I knew was that I had been feeling [...]

The Value of Publicity

Posted: 22 Jan 2012 09:30 AM PST

I'm J.A. Konrath. People consider me to be one of the mouthpieces of the self-publishing movement. As such, I often get interviewed. I've been mentioned in the Wall Street Journal, the LA Times, the Washington Post, Forbes, Newsweek, USA Today, etc. You'd think all of this publicity has led to increased sales of my ebooks. [...]
