Busy Week!

pic with bookI had such a busy week this week. I had my first public speaking engagement for; What is your Life Story?86694361548341527_vPHQTfoq_c   I have done one on ones through the Learning Annex, https://learningannex.com/listings/What-is-your-Life-Story/schedule_time  and a group conference call but never in person. So I am thinking this  a group of people who had not written a lot and needed some guidance to get started. I worked all night on my little 20 minute speech getting it picture perfect and memorized. I arrive early and got to hear some pieces that they had written. What I discovered was that these are very accomplished writers who had already written memoirs.

Well as I sat there listening and35816_406565138320_1875124_n thinking that I can’t do what I thought I was going to do because it would have been completely unacceptable. So I smiled, stood up and went completely off the top of my pointed little head.  It went pretty well because I do know my subject and I am completely willing to share not only about my writing but about my new Blogtalk Radio Show, Chatting with Sherri. So it all turned out well. They all enjoyed it and I recieved  nice emails from both the library and the leader.  I learned a lot and I really hope they did too.

I  also took part in my first Blog Book Tour. It is a really interesting idea. To pool the blogs of many writers to advertise our books so we get a bigger market. Like a consortium. I really do love the idea and of course I am open to anything new and imaginative to sell my books. Here is my special blog with the book tour; https://rithebard.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/special-blog-book-tour-edition/

Speaking of using  your imagination, I have had a really crazy idea. I thought about the book fairs that I have taken part in and I said to myself I wish I could go outside of Southern California.  So after a lively conversation in my head, I came up with this really crazy idea. I am going to have an on line blog book fair on Christmas Day. So come and browse all the authors that will be featured and buy a nice late present for the holidays. Or a little something for yourself! It will be on my website, here is the link;
https://rithebard.wordpress.com/ .  You can sign up for it on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/events/395189883893183/ and Goodreads http://www.goodreads.com/event/show/864802-blog-book-fair .

0afef531fec40ad8976ff2_L__V137635642_SX200_This week I had the pleasure of having Anne Hosansky and her latest book Ten Women of Valor on Chatting With Sherri. “Ranging from indomitable Sarah to legendary Queen Esther, they confide frank feelings of faith, ambition, passion and sibling rivalry” It was a fun show all about books, movies and how far we have come as women. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2012/12/04/chatting-with-sherri

And next week I am very happy to be chatting with the fascinating Will Merrill about his amazing book about 9/11 calledCover 200x300 (2); “Ordinary 200x300 (2)People: Extraordinary Heroes;” it vividly recalls for us the catastrophic legacy of the most destructive terrorist attack in our country’s history.   http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2012/12/11/chatting-with-sherri

New Adventures Pouring In

schrift 3. red whiteBGI think it is interesting that I have a bunch of new opportunities pouring into  my life. I think the old saying once you close a window a door opens is so true. In fact I think it is a tiny window and a huge door. It is so exciting. I am not as brave as you may think I am, I get very nervous to do things I have never done before but I think at this time in my life it is important to grab on to every new adventure that comes my way. So I am catching each wave and just praying that I don’t fall off.

This week will bring the amazing words of Anne Hosansky and her latest book; Ten Women of Valor. “Ranging from indomitable 35816_406565138320_1875124_nSarah to legendary Queen Esther, they confide frank feelings of faith, ambition, passion and sibling rivalry”  Please join us by going to the site below on  Tuesday,  December 4th! http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2012/12/04/chatting-with-sherri

That same day  I will be doing my first personal appearance for “What is your Life StoIMG_9195ry?” I am excited to be able to teach my class in person instead of over the phone. It will be a new and exciting adventure!

Next week I am going to participate in my first Blog Tour for my book Fantasy Time Inc. I will be doing a special Blog Tour blog on December 5th. This week a friend of mine is doing her Blog Tour entry, here is the link,  http://tracykauffman.blogspot.com

I chatted with Greg Kuhn about his book on weight loss called; “Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat” it was an interesting and lively chat;  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2012/11/27/chatting-with-sherri

I thought you would also enjoy a look at the interview I had with him on this blog. It is very interesting addition to the Blogtalk Radio interview;

What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?
The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.  I couldn’t put it down in high school; I was compelled by the immigrant’s struggles, the inhumane living conditions, and the horrendous work environment in the meat packing industry.  I still own it, but haven’t read it in a long while.
 What kind of books do you like to read? Do those books have an effect on your own writing?I enjoy books that explore the mind/body connection – I’m reading Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind by Joe Dispenza right now.  My new book, although in the weight-loss genre, is really a mind/body self-help book.  I also enjoy Deepak Chopra and his books definitely influence my writing; I read things that Dr. Chopra writes about and he motivates me to go do research on topics that I want to write about and include in my books.
 Do you remember what is the first book that touched you deeply?
Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book, You’ll See It When You Believe It, during a time of personal crisis and was helped immensely by his guidance.  I read that book twice.
 Is there an era of writing that affects you? 1920, 1800’s so forth?
I am especially affected by writers who have sprung up at the end of the 20th Century through today who cover the same topic I do: the new paradigms which quantum physics is giving us.  Our paradigms are the reason we do the things we do and, previously, our paradigms had all been based on the old science of the first scientific revolution.  Because quantum physics is so much more precise and reliable than the old science, the paradigms we create from it offer us an amazing array of new possibilities for successful living.  Losing unwanted weight is but one of those.
 Where do you like to write? Is there a favorite nook or corner?
My office is adjacent to our bedroom and has a large window overlooking our backyard.  Even though we don’t live in the country, I can sometimes see deer and hawks from that window.  I love to be here and write on my large oak desk.  This is a quiet, private spot, yet not isolated from my family since my wife is often in the next room and my sons are usually just down the hall.
 Do you prefer one genre to another?I prefer non-fiction and self-help in particular.  I’ve been writing self-help with my father, Clifford Kuhn, M.D. (aka The Laugh Doctor) since 1995.  And, to escape, I also enjoy reading zombie novels.  I’m pretty sure those are fictional stories.
 Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do prefer an electronic devises?
A year ago I would’ve told you that a book in my hand is where it’s at.  But I was given an iPad for my birthday and that changed everything.  I love reading on my iPad and, with the Kindle app, I can read just about any format on it.  I love having hundreds of books on that small device; I feel like a walking library.
 Can you tell us about what your working on now?
I’m starting my next book in my Why Quantum Physicists… series.  This one is for teachers.  But I’m also spending a great deal of time with promoting Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat, which is great fun because I’m so proud of it.  I’ll slowly morph into more writing than promoting, but right now I’m doing a lot of talking about the current book.
Author Greg Kuhn is a professional educator and a futurist, specializing in framing new paradigms for 21st Century living. For the last fifteen years, he has written primarily with his father, Dr. Clifford Kuhn, M.D., about health, wellness, and productivity.Greg Kuhn lives in Louisville, KY with a wonderful wife and four fantastic sons (one by marriage) whom he couldn’t have published this book without; you can read more at http://whyquantumphysicists.wordpress.com/ and http://www.squidoo.com/why-quantum-physicists-dont-get-fat.Here is the Amazon link to my book: http://www.amazon.com/Why-Quantum-Physicists-Dont-ebook/dp/B008I3CURM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1341779750&sr=8-2&keywords=why+quantum+physicists
