Well… here it is:

The price has been slashed from $19.99 to $15.99 on this site. You can order one by clicking on the bookstore tab.

Wait… there’s more! ( Sounds like an infomercial!)

The shipping has also been cut in half!

Wait there’s more!!

Each book you order will be personally autographed by me and will have a personal note.

So… you get:

  •  A book that has had many wonderful endorsements coming in that say it reaches out to those who suffer from anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, hopelessness, low self-esteem, self-doubt, and the many other usual suspects.
  • A book that will be personally autographed.
  • A price of the book that has been lowered from $19.99 to $15.99.
  • Shipping that has been cut in half.

Updates on the Marketing Plan for Signs of Hope

I have started a new marketing plan for 2011. I am now “hitting,” all the bookstores, and gift shops in Oregon that I can, in person, to see if I can place, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” in them.

If you are a store owner, or know someone who is ine in the Northwest area, please make a comment and let me know the contact information.

I will offer a 40% discount just for the store, and even go on consignment. That means no money out of the store owners pocket unless the books sell.

I placed two books in the Oregon State Capital Building gift shop this last week, and I have 24 books placed at the Women’s Assistance league gift shop at the Daue House location in Salem.

I have books in all of the Rainbow West Christian bookstores, which are in Albany, Salem, Gresham, and Oregon City in Oregon, and two locations in Vancouver, Washington. One store is at the Vancouver mall.

There are books at the Eola Hills Winery in Rickreall, Oregon.

On the Oregon Coast, there are book in Newport at the Canyon Way book store, and in Waldport at the New Creations Beauty Salon.

You can order it online at,,, and on this website at:

On my site, I will be changing the price, in the next week. I will let you know when it has been changed. The price will be lowered from $19.99 to $15.99. A four dollar savings.

The books ordered from my website will have a personal note and an autograph.

I will have some exciting news in a future post about a contest for self published books I am entering. (News at 11:00 Pm. 🙂 )


Also check back for updates on new signing  times and locations I will doing this year. One is already scheduled at Border’s Bookstore In Salem, Oregon on April 16th, from 2-4 P.M. The location of the store is on Lancaster.

What do you Want to Accomplish in 2011?

I told you in my last post that I will be starting up a new series of posts that talk about, “Becoming Famous Before you are Famous.” It will be excerpts from my book of the same title.

I have been busy arranging signings for the new year. I just finalized a signing for April 16th at Border’s Books on Lancaster Drive in Salem, Oregon from 2-4 P.M.

I will also be scheduling two signings at Eola Hills Winery in Rickreall, Oregon for Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day. Those signings do not have times yet, so be checking this site for more information.

I will be signing books at the Oregon State Fair next fall for seven days in a row.

My book will be in many more stores in Oregon soon as well. That is the top priority for me in 2011. I will be contacting any stores that carry books or gifts.

You can order a book right from this site by clicking on the Bookstore tab above. It will direct you from there. If you order from this site, you will be mailed a copy of the book with a personal note, and autograph. That will not happen at any other outlet you can get books from.

I am also on,, and  www.Barnes& sites.

The thought of the day….

It is a new year. What do you want to accomplish in 2011? How about finding new ways to serve the Lord? I know, you serve Him daily now, but what new things could you do to serve Him even more?
