As the New York Times bestselling author, Michael Connelly describes it, “From the first page VELOCITY is as relentless as a bullet. Karen Vail is my kind of hero and Alan Jacobson is my kind of writer!” If you haven’t read any of Jacobson’s thrillers, start with 7th VICITIM, the first in his Karen Vail series. Nelson DeMille calls Alan Jacobson, “a hell of a writer, and his lead character, Karen Vail, is a hell of a lady: tough, smart, funny, and very believable.” James Patterson agrees: “Karen Vail is as compelling a character as any created by Patricia Cornwell, or yours truly.”
We are excited to have the opportunity to work with motivational guru, Brian Tracy and his new book, NO EXCUSES: The Power of Self-Discipline for Success in Your Life (Vanguard Press Hardcover), which pubs today. The beauty of this book is that Brian Tracy shows how the power of self-discipline can help you achieve success in all three major areas of your life – your personal goals, your business and money goals, and your overall happiness. The book features helpful exercises and easy-to-follow guidelines to teach you how to be more successful in everything you do. For more information visit www.briantracy.com and www.vanguardpressbooks.com. You can also stop by Vanguard’s booth (#4227) at BEA later this week.
We are big fans of The Huffington Post, not only as a source for book reviews, political news, and entertainment, but also as a great way for authors to get publicity. How? The Huffington Post combines breaking news and blogs to deliver unique perspectives on a variety of issues and topics, and they are open to authors writing original content for their site. For example, one of our authors, Carole Mallory – whose recent memoir, LOVING MAILER, chronicles her nine year affair with the iconic author, Norman Mailer – just posted an entry that compares her experiences as a cover model in the 70s with a recent photo shoot she had for a feature in the New York Times’ Style section: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/carole-mallory/is-technology-destroying_b_566179.html. Another client, Rosalyn Hoffman, author of BITCHES ON A BUDGET had a post about simple Mother’s Day gifts for every budget: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rosalyn-hoffman/5-simple-mothers-day-gift_b_566016.html. And this wasn’t the first time either author has blogged for The Huffington Post. Check out who else is blogging for them at www.huffingpost.com.
