Yesterday November 5, 2016 I had the pleasure and opportunity to be interviewed by Toni Nelson. Build Authority Coach, Writer, Author, Speaker, Award winning Videographer/Photographer.
After she approached me about being interviewed I had to say yes. A chance to get one talking about my newly published book, Terror In The North Tower wasn’t going to be turned down.
I expected Toni to offer insights as to marketing, improvements I could make with my marketing strategy and that she did plus more.
The main reason for writing the book, marketing strategies, self published verses traditional publishing , challenges and staying focused.
Toni made me feel at ease. It was as if I was sitting in her kitchen having coffee and just chatting away. Before I knew it thirty minutes has gone by and we were saying our thank you’s and good byes.
What I Will Remember
I will remember most the conversation that took place after the recording. Her insight on how to improve the website for my book Author Alicia Osmera.
Oh if you don’t know the book is called Terror In The North Tower.
Using The Interview
I know what your thinking. Where is the interview and can I hear it? Soon it will be released in I Tunes and I will let all my readers know just as soon as I have a release date.
I have already started to implement some of the suggestions from Toni and I can’t wait to see how the rest will play out.
As always I welcome your comments.

If you are an avid reader of my blog then you already know that I wrote a book.
Terror In The North Tower came from my background as a respiratory therapist. This is a suspenseful fictional thriller with more twist than Grey’s Anatomy .
The Challenge To Edit And Publish
After much searching, phone calls and email I was starting to realize publishing wasn’t going to be so easy. Through the Power Affiliate Club I met Monna Ellithorpe. Known as The Blue Jean Writer, she helps other author’s edit and publish wonderful works of words.
Once she was done with editing and I approved it we set out sites on self publishing through Amazon.
Publishing hasn’t come without it’s challenges.
1. Marketing – self marketing is hard work . Researching places that may or may not put your book in their businesses .
2. Social Media – getting the word out on social media is a time saber and huge benefit. According to Search engine land
Social media marketing refers to the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites.
