MISTLETOE MARKETPLACE NOV 7-10, 2007 MISSISSIPPI TRADEMART JACKSON, MS

Please visit Ponder House Press Booth 409 in the central building of the Mississippi Trademart during 2007 Mistletoe Marketplace "Celebrate the South." Darden North (Points of Origin and House Call) will be joined by Alice Nicholas (Talk Football) and Billy Watkins (Apollo Moon Missions: The Unsung Heroes), making their novels and books available for sale and personal autographing.

Directions to Booth 409:
Enter the main/central building. Our booth is just to the left of Center Court, about midway down. Lots of other great merchants are on our "street" at Mistletoe 2007.
Also, I am pleased to announce that HOUSE CALL is now available in paperback. The hardcover edition is now out-of-print ... so hang on to your copy, or better yet, buy another hardcover copy of HOUSE CALL if you can find one. Only 7000 or so were printed! You never know!

Recently, I’ve gotten into listening to audiobooks on my drive to and from work, so I was thrilled to see that “House Call” had just come out—and I was not disappointed.

His versatility as an actor came through with other character dialects as well. The narrator added to the professional performance by including an occasional sound effect and a few seconds of introductory and closing music. For me, it was like listening to a movie or play. Now, I feel like I truly know Darden North’s character

Was the Experiment a Success?

I recently conducted a little experiment in book marketing, placing an ad on FaceBook promoting the release of my three mystery/medical thriller novels as eBooks. The materials utilized for the experiment were no more than my laptop, a little electricity, a high speed cable Internet connection, and a credit card --- as well as some spare time that I did not have. (Perhaps I should have spent the minutes moving past page 100 of my work–in–progress, a fourth novel tentatively titled Wiggle Room .) The results of my non-scientific experiment are detailed in this essay and presented in the guise of a blog entry on my author’s website. While it is meant primarily to interest other authors or maybe publishers, I hope the piece is clever enough for my book fans as well. I was intrigued when author Jeffrey Marks recently reported his own experience with advertising on FaceBook, publishing an article and follow-up piece in the Mystery Writers of America newsletter. I decided to see for myself
