Up from the DownTrodden

Book synopsis: Divided into quintets, Up from the Downtrodden offers the possibility of hope to anyone feeling hopeless in the world today. The poems within, culled from a period of inspiration and resurgence after more than a decade of hopeless struggling and despair, honor both the darkness and the light. There is a chance, when the two are integrated, to turn what is bitter in life, sweet.

  1. Hi, Katya:

    Congratulations on your new book. I’m enclosing one of the Snowflakes in a Blizzard forms in case you’d like to go that route. Also, I’ve attached the preface of a book I’m working on.

    Good luck with your project.

    THE BOOK: Just the title.


    THE AUTHOR: Just your name.

    THE EDITOR: If appropriate. I like the idea of giving editors some credit.

    THE PUBLISHER: Name of the publisher and, if you want, some info about them.

    SUMMARY: A few basic paragraphs about the book, touching on its general theme, subject and other basics.

    THE BACK STORY: Why did you decide to write it? How long did it take to write? Whatever you think might be of interest.

    WHY THIS TITLE?: If it’s self evident (“The Life and Times of Bill Gates”), we’ll just skip that. But sometimes there’s an interesting story behind a title.

    WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO READ IT? What makes your book unique, and what niche audiences might it reach?

    REVIEW COMMENTS: Maybe three if you’ve got them, four tops.

    AUTHOR PROFILE: I’d like something more than just a writing resume (although I’d be happy to include links to your previous books). If visitors to the blog feel like they know you a little as a person, they will be more likely to buy your book (at least, that’s the theory)

    AUTHOR COMMENTS: Here’s where you can perhaps tie your book to some larger issue, or what you hoped to accomplish.

    SAMPLE: You can cut and paste on the template or refer readers to your Amazon page.


    WHERE ELSE TO BUY IT: Amazon, Barnes & noble, etc.


    CONTACT THE AUTHOR: I think it’s very important to open the door to writer/reader interaction. You could post your e-mail address, Facebook page, or Twitter handle, or all of the above.
