Senior Authors Give BackWritten by Francine Silverman
As editor/publisher of Book Promotion Newsletter, I am fortunate in having an eclectic group of subscribers who number in thousands. The ezine is interactive and subscribers are encouraged to share their innovative marketing techniques. What has impressed me most, however, is tenacity and good heartedness of over-50 members of my list. Dr. Ted “Gorgeous” Borgeas is a retired, sports-oriented podiatrist and author of nine books. When he was appointed as a volunteer to Medical Services Division of Athens Olympics 2004, Ted thought it would be very informative and appreciated to initiate a volunteer translation project of his book, When My Feet Hurt, I Hurt All Over (Cameltrotters Publishing 1976; last revision 2004). His idea was to distribute book free to athletes in their native languages. To accomplish this, he recruited volunteers to translate book into half a dozen tongues. Ted didn’t receive a penny on this project but his satisfaction is priceless. “The response was fantastic, encouraging and exciting…it was such a joy to be able to show some of athletes pictures and a translation of their problems.” http://www.atborgeas.com Miller Caldwell lives in Scotland. Even though profits on his book, Operation Oboe (Authors Online 2003), are greatly reduced when he donates two pounds (approx. $1.5) from sale at every book signing, Scottish Police Benefit/Welfare Association and Alzheimers and Dementia groups benefit from Miller’s largesse. http://www.millercaldwell.org
Single guys (married and engaged not excluded), who's that lady?Written by Steve Dimeck
Who's that woman that you're looking for? What is she like? How does she look? Does she know that you're looking for her? Have you told her yet?
Have you experienced or maybe heard about a relationship or even a marriage that ended up nowhere? The woman simply said: "That's it! We're over! I'm leaving you!"
Girls don't know what guys want. Do they?
Yeah, sex is one of things that guys want. I admit it! I'm a guy. Come on! Be honest! Don't you? But, is that it? Is that only reason why you want to be with a woman? Isn't there more?
From all of women that I have gone on a date with, I've realized that women are clueless when it comes to men's needs. And you know what? I don't blame them!
We, guys, have never told them about type of a woman that we are looking for. They don't know that. Maybe sex part got best of us that we forgot about rest.
The first time I got nerve to tell my date about type of a woman that I wanted to be with, she got up, left me, and never called me again. I guess she wasn't type that I was looking for. But second time I did it, she married me and 7 years later we still have a delightful marriage.
