Here’s a portion of a note sent by Burt Bomhoff, author of Iditarod Alaska, to Deborah Bonito, Manager Mosquito Books. “Thank you for the book signing event Jim and I participated in at Mosquito Books. I’m new at this so it was a special treat to work with your staff and to interact with many people traveling through the airport. I hope the event was profitable for you and not too much extra work for your staff. I would be honored to participate in another book signing any time you wish.” Burt’s thank you note is representative of thank you notes sent by other grateful, professional authors when ever they have a signing.

Sherry Ellis, book reviewer for Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman, recently reviewed Burt’s book under the headline: “Bomhoff book reads like stories told around the campfire.” She concluded the review with. “The behind the scenes look at the preparation, knowledge and tenacity these mushers must possess is absolutely a treat for the reader. The “chicanery” (a term Bomhoff often used) that several of the mushers would pull off is a fascinating read in itself, and then the fact that the author honestly never held it against any of his buddies over the years is amazing.”

Webmaster, John Poll, gave us information about an article titled, Physical Books Are Dead — Long Live Physical Books. If you’re an author interested is knowing about what some see as the future of books, you’ll be interested in this article.

Here’s a comment about Author Signings procedures on our website. “I finally went on the website and registered for a few signings.  What a user-friendly process it is!  Alice Wright, author of Alaska Animals We Love You.”Alice’s comment is typical of comments we receive. Alice’s “few signings” contributed to the more than 120 scheduled author book signings Mary Ann Poll, author events coordinator, is currently managing for Publication Consultants’ authors.

Included with this note are two more release party notices–one immediate and one in the future. We encourage authors to support other author’s release parties. Two good ways to do this is to send the attached notices to people on your email mailing list you think will be interested in attending and meeting the author; and, by attending the party if you’re able.

Marianne Schlegelmilch, author of seven books published by Publication Consultants, will soon release her eighth book, Slugs Forever!, a fund raiser for the Independent Living Center. Marianne’s illustrator is confined to a wheelchair and created the illustrations by drawing with the brush held between her teeth. Slugs Forever! made national and international news a few weeks ago and now illustrator, Maggie Winston, does it again:

And finally, here’s the kind of note all author like to receive.
“I have enjoyed reading Courtrooms, Cartridges, and Campfires.  I treasure it!  I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable books I have ever read!  … You are a great writer and your humor is so vividly  exhibited in your writings!  The hell with being a lawyer – be a writer all the time!

“John E. Frampton
“Interim President and CEO
“Council to Advance Hunting and the Shooting Sports”
