John Kremer's Birthday Gift to You
As is my custom, I always give some bonus or free item to my readers when my birthday rolls around. Well, this year I just completed a new program called How to Sell Your Novel Like a Pro - Advice to First-Time Authors Who Want to Become Bestselling Novelists (or Children’s Book Authors.

I wanted to make the offer today, the day before my birthday, but I haven't quite finished putting the program together. I will be selling this special program of book, audios, and teleseminars for $127.00, but during the next two weeks, the program will be selling for only $57. That's a whopping savings of $40. Watch for the special promo coming up on Monday or Tuesday in this newsletter.

People You Should Know teleseminar series
Just a note of appreciation for your teleseminar series. What I've found so valuable about the teleseminars is that they not only teach how to market books generally, but they also allow me to ask a current expert on the telephone questions about how to market MY book. That is so unique and valuable. - Jim Wawro, author, Ask Your Inner Voice

January 20th - Frank Marquette, director of Light Box Trailers. He will talk about how authors can promote their books with video.

If you'd like to take part in this informative series of teleseminars, you can sign up for less than $1 per seminar here:

JV Alert Live coming up on February 5 to 7
Let's get together in person. If you attend JV Alert Live on February 5th to 7th, I'll give you a free half hour of consulting. Why? Because I am a firm believer in working with other people to build a business - or to sell a book.

JF Alert Live is one of the best places to meet other people who can help you market your book via joint ventures and special relationships.

There's just nothing like meeting face to face and talking about ways to work together when a person shares the same vision and goals that you have.

I know what it's like to be isolated. You feel like you're the only person who is going through the stress and strain of writing and marketing your book.

One of the neat things about JV Alert Live is that you'll meet other ordinary folks like you who have figured out some secret to marketing via the Internet (or who are working hard to figure it out). You'll get a chance to talk with these people and probably set up a number of effective marketing programs where you help them and they help you.

I'll be speaking at the event, along with a number of other great idea people who are successfully implementing those ideas. Ken McArthur invited me to be a part of this event and I grabbed the chance right away because I know the value of partnerships and relationships.

JV Alert Live is one of the most effective venues for creating long-term relationships that could really jump-start your marketing campaigns.

I've been to this event before and develop some great friendships and working relationships. Ken always has an incredible group of people who come to JV Alert Live, both as speakers and as attendees.

I'm always amazed how much I learn from both groups.

You can sign up to learn more about the event by clicking here: By going there, you'll be signed up to receive more info from Ken.

The event, again in on Friday through Sunday, February 5th to 7th, in Orlando, Florida. But, if at all possible, come on Thursday evening for the networking dinner and don't leave until later on Monday so you can attend the networking breakfast. The last time I attended this event, I saw lots of deals being completed from 9:00 a.m. to noon on Monday.
