The Interview

Q: Welcome to The Writer's Life, Ginger Marks. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how long you’ve been writing? 

 A: I would be happy to. I am a designer, author, and publisher who enjoys assisting business owners to obtain a polished look for all their business needs. I began writing articles about business over ten years ago—after thirty plus years as an entrepreneur. My book, Presentational Skills for the Next Generation, was my first attempt at authorship.

Q: Can you please tell us about your book and why you wrote it? 

A: Certainly. The Complete Library of Entrepreneurial Wisdom began as a private compilation of my business writings and personal musings. After I wrote it I discovered it was too good to keep hidden. So, I designed it in ebook format and quickly heard the cry for a print version. So today it is available in all formats.

Q: What were some of the biggest challenges you faced writing it? 

A: That is a good question. I would have to say that sorting the categories for each article was the most difficult. Some of the articles cross over the category lines, but ultimately, I ended up with a good mix of business development, design, and marketing topics, to name a few.

Q: Do you have a press kit and what do you include in it? Does this press kit appear online and, if so, can you provide a link to where we can see it? 

A: Absolutely. Not only is there a press kit available at CLEWbook.com, but I have had the cover turned into an amazing animated video trailer by Misty Taggart of Trailer to the Stars.

Q: Have you either spoken to groups of people about your book or appeared on radio or TV? What are your upcoming plans for doing so?

A: As all authors must, I speak about my books wherever I go to all who would listen. Thus far, I have no plans to do radio or TV spots. But, you never know.

Q: Do you have an agent and, if so, would you mind sharing who he/is is? If not, have you ever had an agent or do you even feel it’s necessary to have one?

A: I don’t believe in book agents in today’s publishing arena. They can be good for some and not so for others. If you want one and find a good one, they are worth gold!

Q: Did you, your agent or publisher prepare a media blitz before the book came out and would you like to tell us about it? 

A: Since this book was really done originally for my own personal library the thought to actually sell it to other business owners wasn’t suggested to me until much later. So, now I am here to let you and your audience know that after thirty plus years as a business owner, they can benefit from my years of experience in short, easy to digest, articles that are sorted by topic and indexed for easy access.

Q: Do you plan subsequent books? 

A: Always! I am currently working on my Sixth Edition Weird & Wacky Holiday Marketing Guide: Your calendar of marketing ideas which will be available in ebook format in December of this current year.

Q: Thank you for your interview, Ginger Marks. Would you like to tell my readers where they can find you on the web and how everyone can buy your book? 

A: I would me more than happy to; The Complete Library of Entrepreneurial Wisdom is available on Amazon in both print and digital versions and you can also read more about it and access the Nook, PDF, and SmashWords versions at http://www.CLEWbook.com.
