eBooks – Big Predictions – an Author G D Grace perspective

eBooks – Big predictions – The alleged pending merger between Penguin and Random House –

I am motivated to really understand this literary business, deeper, in 2013. In 2009 when I leaped out on faith, the world of self-publishing was foreign, so now in 2013 I can honestly confirm that I have a love for this artistry and business.

Many of my colleagues are more advanced than I; the dazzling graphics of their book covers are quite impressive, and a number of them have interesting story lines that are truly inspiring. Their brands are equally impressive.

The GD brand…

I heard this word “brand” early on, and it has clicked in my visual mentally. I actually wrote a business model a few months ago, and have a logo designed. I’ll introduce them at some point this year. I’ve learned that timing is everything.

I also have learned that the obligations of day-to-day survival don’t stop when your building a dynasty; if anything it they becomes a bit more challenging to balance. Monthly living expenses must be paid to keep a roof over your head, and to keep gas in that car. This is also where the money to travel comes from… Outta your pocket.

Ain’t nothing in life free.

The first event slated for 2013 is the release of, “Daddy.” The literary magicians at Lulu performed the eBook magic with my first 5, but this time I’m on my own. (Smile)

My work is available globally, but I’m still quite invisible as an author. That’s why I am studying and observing the literary culture, because those that help promo you are far and few. I am blessed with some pretty consistent “far & few.” As a matter of fact, one of them brought that to my attention in the wee hours of the morning. I can’t believe we were on the same page about the topic of support, but you do what you do for people and let Karma handle the rest.

Silent observance of competitive operations helps get us familiar with the climate in this business. You got to really love it to stay in it.
I know I love it, because I’m still at it. ~GD

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
