Power Boost

Adi is five years already. I remember the moment when I saw him for the first time. Those tiny little hands which was always trying to catch something. Looking at his face all I could feel was contented. The feeling which I cannot, may be none of the mothers can put into words.

Adi is a sweet little kid who wants to explore the word on his own terms. He doesn’t listen to me at all. 😊☹. The only fact which makes me relived is, he doesn’t listen to BS also.

There were many changes in our lives during these five years. One of the main is relocating to Kochi. Me and BS always wanted Adi to stay near to his grandparents. It takes an hour and a half drive to reach our parents home.

Driving with Adi is very difficult task for us. He wants to reach the destination within five minutes of our journey. So, occupying him inside the car is my responsibility by answering all the questions about any topic which has his attention.

If I couldn’t justify my responsibility right, we will end up in listening to his complaints such as

Why Appa is driving slowly?
Why our car is not fast?
Why Appa is not buying a racing car?
Why don’t Appa do a power boost?
Why is it the place is so far?
Why don’t we crash all the cars and drive fast?

He thinks driving a car should be as easy as playing a race game in his iPad. (for him its easy but me, sucks). Do a power Boost!! He is just five and I can’t think about the time he become 18 and start driving a car!!!!

Thank God, there are years left for that.

When Your Book Isn't Selling

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

I used to cringe when I saw the mail or email from one of my publishers. It probably contained a royalty statement and experience told me many of those numbers would begin with a minus (negative balance).  I’ve written for many different traditional publishers and have had this experience from a broad spectrum of types of books including how-to, self-help, biographies, gift books and children’s books.

When your book sales are off, it’s a natural tendency to want to blame someone. Maybe my editor has left and my book was orphaned inside the publisher with no champion or advocate. Maybe my publisher didn’t market the book to bookstores. Maybe they changed the title between what was printed in the catalog and what was published. Or _______(fill in the blank). I’ve had all of these things happen to my published books. 

Good publishing involves a cooperative process and working with many different people. Much of this process is outside of the author’s…

Get A Realistic Publishing Perspective

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

I've spoken with many authors about their plans and ambitions for their published book. Authors pour a lot of energy into writing their manuscript and creating a book proposal or careful pitch of their book for editors or literary agents. These authors make statements to me like:

“My book will be a bestseller.”

“My book will make a lot of money.” 

“My book will sell ____ copies.”

Also over many years in publishing, I've had publishers tell me that my book would be in airport bookstores and they had plans to market and sell many copies of the book. Conventional wisdom in publishing says the larger the advance, the greater the publisher investment and the greater they will have to invest in marketing to get this investment back and more. I've been blessed to get a couple of six-figure advances—but I have lengthy stories (not good ones) about how each of these books turned out in the market.

From my years in publishing, I know and understan…
