In celebration of his new book, Full Heart Living: Conversations with the Happiest People I Know, psychologist and life coach Tom Glaser led a couple of free workshops on happiness in Palm Desert this March.
The first event was held on the International Day of Happiness (Mar. 20), at the Joslyn Senior Center. Glaser's second event took place on Mar. 21 at the Palm Desert Library. Both events were previewed on Palm Springs television station KMIR the morning of Mar. 19. RMA Publicity lined up the events and media appearance.
Tom's story is as compelling as it is all-too common. His dream job became a living nightmare when a toxic coworker joined his team. In the midst of his grief and confusion, he noticed happy people all around him. Curious, he began interviewing them. Those talks became the basis of his book and workshop.

Steve Ford, the author of Keys to Inspiration, A Teacher’s Guide to a Student-Centered Writing Program, introduced his book to the world on KARE TV Minneapolis' 4 p.m. newscast on Mar. 12, and officially launched it at Common Good Books in St. Paul on Mar. 18.
In Keys to Inspiration, which was recently published by education publisher Rowman & Littlefield, the author shares lesson plans divided into three sections. Let’s Write! shows teachers how to introduce students to their natural source of inspiration—emotion—and provides them with complete plans for many unique exercises and small projects. The Major Projects section includes persuasive essay, editorial writing and cartooning, research writing, debate, and oral presentation. Section three, Mechanics, reveals common student mistakes; explains rules of grammar, punctuation, and spelling; and serves as a handy teacher reference. The book finishes with an extensive Appendix of lists—spelling lists, emotion-related lists, powerful verbs, and more, that can be downloaded and used in the classroom.

One of the best tools to promote a book to potential commercial buyers, namely bookstores and libraries, is getting a favorable professional review, and congratulations go out to Mark Ristau, author, A Hero Dreams. Midwest Book Review has offered a favorable review of his debut novel. Here it is: "An inspiring tale of hope, faith, courage, and profound self-discovery, 'A Hero Dreams' is unreservedly recommended for personal reading lists, as well as community library Contemporary General Fiction collections."
A great review isn't all Ristau has to celebrate this month. He just learned his book has been named a finalist for a Benjamin Franklin Award in the category of Popular Fiction. The Benjamin Franklin is one of the most prestigious awards for independently published fiction.

One of the key strategies for selling more than just a handful of self-published books is finding places to sell multiple copies. If you haven't tried getting your book into library systems yet, you may want to give it a try.
The first five titles published by my son's publishing company for teens, Sigma's Bookshelf, are now available for checkout at the Hennepin County Public Library in Minnesota. The other two books are on order and will be there soon. Here is a link to a page where the books currently available are listed. The library ordered three copies of each book, meaning just like that we sold 15 books.
Justin checked out the first two books that became available in early March, then immediately returned them so the people who have requested the books will get them very soon.
