Leftback Publishing Touts Book that Puts Reality in Perspective for Soccer Parent and Players

Gilbert, AZ (PRWEB) January 12, 2013

At a time when parents are spending insane amounts of money for elite clubs, camps and coaches hoping that their child will attract a college scholarship offer and professional clubs are signing eight-year-olds, the book A Soccer Life in Shorts shows that simply having fun playing the worlds most popular sport doesnt have to be frowned upon.

The book is an honest and hilarious collection of stories, poems and pictures from a life well-lived in the worlds most popular sport by author Mark Vincent Lincir. Unfortunately, a lot of people have lost perspective on what its all about. Its about having fun, making friends and continuing to play soccer for the long haul. Not just going all-out for a few years and then quitting the game because the kid hates it by then.

Lincir also feels that players today need to win in order to keep their passion for the game burning.

Passion has nothing to do with results. If you love the game, you play it because you want to be a part of it, not just because you want to win. Sure, we all want to winbut you cant every time out. The all-or-none mentality out there is very unhealthy for our youth players.

“Let them enjoy the game without any pressure and that is the theme of the stories in my book. I didnt always win, but I always came back for more. From scoring my own goal to getting a yellow card when I was only eight years old, the stories in my book show that.

Mark Vincent Lincir (http://www.markvincentlincir.me) is the author of A Soccer Life in Shorts, The Gift of Stoppage Time, The World Needs More Belly Rubs and The Nando Keenan Chronicles. A Soccer Life in Shorts has consistently been in Amazon.coms top 10 best-seller list for e-book soccer non-fiction for over a year.

A Soccer Life in Shorts is available in paperback, e-book and audio formats at http://www.amazon.com and http://www.barnesandnoble.com







Samhain Publishing Authors Sunny Moraine and Lisa Soem Receive Publishers Weekly Starred Review for LINE AND ORBIT


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

International publisher Samhain Publishing? today announced that authors Sunny Moraine and Lisa Soem have received a Publishers Weekly starred review for their male/male sci-fi fantasy novel-length debut, LINE AND ORBIT.

LINE AND ORBIT is the story of an outcast who finds unexpected love in the arms of his enemy, set against a compelling and fully-realized science fiction world. We are delighted with the starred review for Lisa and Sunny, and thrilled that such talented authors have received this recognition, said Samhain publisher Lindsey Faber. We look forward to continuing to work with them on future books.

The full description of LINE AND ORBIT is:

What hes been taught to fear could be his destinyand his only hope.

Adam Yuga, a rising young star in the imperialist Terran Protectorate, is on the verge of a massive promotionuntil a routine physical exam reveals something less than perfection. Genetic flaws are taboo, and Adam soon discovers theres a thin line between rising star and starving outcast.

Stripped of wealth and position, stricken with a mysterious, worsening illness, Adam resorts to stealing credits to survive. Moments from capture by the Protectorate, help arrives in the form of Lochlan, a brash, cocksure Bideshi fighter.

Now the Bideshi, a people long shunned by the Protectorate, are the only ones who will offer him shelter. As Adam learns the truth about the mysterious, nomadic people he was taught to fear, Lochlan offers him not just shelterbut a temptation Adam can only resist for so long.

Struggling to adapt to his new life, Adam discovers his illness hides a terrible secret, one that the Protectorate will stop at nothing to conceal. Time is growing short, and he must find the strength to close a centuries-old rift, accept a new identityand hold on to a love that could cost him everything.

And the complete review of LINE AND ORBIT from Publishers Weekly is:

(Starred)

Moraine (In the Pale Moonlight) and debut author Soem collaborate on a deliciously fulfilling gay sci-fi romance. Adam Yuga is on the fast track to the upper echelon of the Terran Protectorate, the dominant force in the galaxy. Members of the Protectorate have been genetically engineered and carefully bred for generations, so when testing reveals Adam has a genetic flaw, he becomes persona non grata. Adams downward spiral throws him in the path of Lochlan dBideshi, whose nomadic people believe in magic and nature and directly oppose the Protectorates cold science. As the mystery of the Protectorates obsession with Adam deepens and the two societies head inexorably toward a crisis, Adam and Lochlans uneasy truce develops into love worth dying for. Readers will fall for the engaging dialogue, wonderfully fleshed-out characters, a sexy and realistic romance, fully realized world-building, and a genuinely interesting science fictional core issue to work through. This phenomenal novel marks Moraine and Soem as authors to watch. (Feb.)

Self Publishing Podcast Helps Writers Achieve Their Publication Dreams in the High-Potential Kindle and eBook Age


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 07, 2012

Self publishing is accessible to everyone, and the podcast helps savvy, hard-working writers learn how they can make full-time livings from fiction to nonfiction something that was close to impossible before the eBook age.

Digital publishing, through Kindle and other e-formats, hasnt just revolutionized self publishing; its revolutionized all publishing, said Truant. Even established authors are now turning to this model and away from old-school publishing deals. And why not? Traditional publishers pay authors around 15% of a books sale price and hardly do any publicity, widespread distribution, or marketing for anyone other than their blockbuster clients. If those publishers are really only adding overhead, why not do it yourself? Why not build your own audience, spread the word yourself through the tools available on the Internet, and make 70% royalties while retaining total creative control?

The trio launched the new podcast, located at SelfPublishingPodcast.com, in mid April. Born from a desire to help others achieve the success they were achieving themselves, Wright, Platt, and Truant decided a weekly podcast packed with advice, best practices, and interviews with experts would help others avoid the trial and error theyd had when publishing their own work primarily on Amazons Kindle e-Book platform, but also on others like Barnes & Nobles Nook Store and the Kobo platform, which is popular in Europe.

Self-publishing used to be expensive and ineffective, but also relatively straightforward, said Wright. You paid someone to publish your books, you stored them in your garage, and then you traveled around and tried to sell them. Its completely different today. The best platforms are digital. Anyone can publish with very little out-of-pocket expense and be exposed instantly to millions of potential buyers. But now its trickier too, and youll never sell to those millions if you dont put the pieces together correctly.

The Self Publishing Podcast, which publishes new episodes every Thursday, covers topics such as how to get started, how to make a compelling book cover, how to market your book, writing and editing tips, how to format for different platforms, and much more. Its peppered with Truant, Wright and Platts trademark wit and friendly camaraderie. Its available on the iTunes, Blackberry and Zune podcast directory, as well as non-subscription play through the website at SelfPublishingPodcast.com.

Johnny B. Truant has a large readership on his blog at JohnnyBTruant.com and writes regularly for 100,000+ subscriber blogs like Copyblogger.com and Problogger.com. Platt also writes for the same blogs, and is founder of The Digital Writer. Both are known as marketing experts in the blogging niche. Professional cartoonist and blogger Wright rounds out the podcasts hosts.

Wright and Platt self-publish several books each week through their publishing companies Collective Inkwell and Sterling & Stone, including their own extremely popular post-apocalyptic horror serial Yesterdays Gone, which is one of the Top 100 Reviewed Amazon Fiction Titles of all time. Truants humor novel The Bialy Pimps debuted in a splash through blog publicity in February. Hes also the author of the Epic Series, a series of personal development and human potential essays that hit #3 on the Amazon free list for Entrepreneurship.

This is a brave new frontier, said Platt. The good news is that any good writer can now make a full-time living purely as a writer, but you must first nderstand how to make it work in order for that to happen. Thats why we started this podcast to help writers understand, and to finally realize their dreams of publication.

The Digital Writer, Sean Platt, joins Co-author David Wright and Popular Blogger, Johnny B. Truant for the Self Publishing Podcast


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 09, 2012

Kings of serialized fiction, David Wright and Sean Platt have joined popular blogger Johnny B. Truant for the Self Publishing Podcast. The podcast is designed to help writers learn the ins and outs of indie publishing with intelligence, humor and practical information.

Digital publishing is in a constant shift. Writers now have a ridiculous amount of opportunity, said Truant. Even traditionally published authors are turning self publishing. But that doesnt mean they know how to make the right decisions when it comes to modern publishing. Weve been in the trenches of blogging and social media for years, and want to help other writers do what were doing.

Both Platt and Truant are fluent bloggers and marketers, and both have written for some of the worlds largest blogs, such as Copyblogger, Problogger, and Zen Habits. Platt and Wright have seen remarkable success with their weekly Kindle serials, including landing on the Top 100 Rated Fiction Books of All Time on Amazon, for their debut series, the post-apocalyptic horror serial Yesterdays Gone.

The trio launched the new podcast, located at SelfPublishingPodcast.com, in mid April. Born from a desire to help others achieve the success they were achieving themselves.

The podcast is packed with advice, best practices, and interviews with experts would help others avoid the trial and error theyd had when publishing their own work.

Indie publishing was once expensive and mostly ineffective, said Wright. Now, anyone can publish. And profit. But its also trickier, and youll never sell millions of downloads if you dont put the pieces together correctly.

The Self Publishing Podcast, which publishes new episodes every Thursday, covers topics such as how to get started self-publishing, how to make a compelling book cover, how to market your book, writing and editing tips, how to format for different platforms, and much more.

The podcast is peppered with Truant, Wright and Platts trademark wit and friendly camaraderie. The show is available on the iTunes, Blackberry and Zune podcast directory, as well as non-subscription play through the website at SelfPublishingPodcast.com.

In addition to their serialized fiction, Platt publishes nonfiction through his publishing company Sterling & Stone, as The Digital Writer.

Johnny is known for his humor novel The Bialy Pimps, which debuted with a giant splash through blog publicity in February.
