My Virtual Book Tour Travels to HelpDeskJA.com: Turn Your Book into a Business

Hi everyone,

I’m proud to announce that today my virtual book tour travels to the website of Corine LaFont, a talented entrepreneur who helps authors publish and market their books. She is the only certified author assistant in the Caribbean, and and I would never have connected with her if it wasn’t for D’vorah Lansky’s Virtual Book Tour course, which allows authors from all over the world to network and to learn from each other.  Corine also has a radio show on Blog Talk Radio called “Between the Lines,” which is devoted to empowering authors.

To check out the full article, please click on the title: “How to Turn Your Book Into a Business.” This article covers:

  • How I marketed my book, Tales of a Law School Dropout, with a Virtual Book Tour (VBT)
  • How my VBT helped me double my freelance writing and editing income
  • How I turned my hobby into a business by starting with a SCORE business plan and mentor

I didn’t mention this in the article, because it is personal, but one of my main motivations for launching http://www.WritingandEditingToday.com is because my 76-year-old dad has early-onset Alzheimer’s. This disease has shaken up our family in ways I never could have imagined, but as a result of those challenges, I have pushed myself to turn my own hobby into a business. Writing has always been something I did for fun, but now, I am blessed to have clients tell me that I’m an answer to their prayers by helping them with their own books and small businesses. Owning a business has its own set of challenges, so I encourage those of you who are brave enough to take up my small business challenge to balance your lives so that you can manage the stress of owning a business while you remain healthy and happy at the same time!
