“Have You Read A Good Book by Cheryl Holloway?”

Jamaican Love

Joi meets a Chef in New York City that is interested in dating her. Joi is not ready to be in a new relationship with anyone, especially a long-distance relationship—he lives on the East Coast and she lives on the West Coast. But Spencer doesn’t give up easily. They go their separate ways. Fate brings them together again while on vacation.

Can Spencer sweep Joi off her feet with Jamaican love?

Note: This is Book 3 of 3 in the Cougar Tales series, but can be read as a standalone novella and can be read without needing to buy subsequent books.

Cheryl Holloway Encourages You to Celebrate National Library Week April 10-16, 2016

National Library Week 2016

Cheryl Holloway Encourages You to Celebrate National Library Week

Libraries Transform2_Banner

The 2016 National Library Week theme is “Libraries Transform.” 

Fact: National Library Week was first sponsored in 1958.  National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries—school, public, academic and special—participate. Award-Winning graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang will serve as Honorary Chair of National Library Week 2016.

From the time that I was first introduced to the neighborhood library until I graduated from high school, I went to the library every day. (Our hometown library was open on Sundays.) I read a book a day back then. I was a fast reader and later, before entering college, took the Evelyn Wood Speed Reading Program, which taught me how to read even faster with accurate comprehension. My reading led to writing. I always thought I could write a story ‘just as good, if not better.’

Even today, I still remain an avid reader and dedicated writer, who goes to the library on a regular basis. So, libraries have always been a part of my life. I still have a current library card in Indiana, besides my current library card in Maryland.

I participate in various library programs, such as the Author Reception at the Waldorf West Library, Accokeek Women’s Writing Group, and I provide free writing workshops at local Maryland libraries throughout the year. I am a staunch supporter of libraries across the nation.

I encourage you to celebrate National Library Week!

Why Should a Self-Published Author Have a Book Trailer for Their Book? The Basic Why, What, How and Where of Book Trailers?

Film 2  Book Trailers Lead to Potential Readers.Read Me

Why Do You Need a Book Trailer? Honestly, do you think enough people will just pick up an unknown, self-published author’s book and read it?

What is the Purpose of a Book Trailer? The purpose of a book trailer is to persuade readers to be interested in knowing more about your book and to persuade potential readers into buying your book to find out what else happens.

A book trailer gives the self-published author a definite advantage over other authors who do not have a book trailer, such as:

  • A book trailer gives the self-published author a professional look without the additional cost.
  • A self-published author can package and present their book in a manner that grabs the attention of not only, readers and reviewers, but also traditional publishers.
  • Self-publishing authors, who want a traditional book deal, must have a professional-looking book cover and book trailer that will get them noticed.

A self-published author’s book trailer does three things:

  • Gets word-of-mouth conversations started about the book;
  • Stimulates interest in the book; and
  • Ultimately, increases book sales.

 How Does a Self-Published Author Start A Script for a Book Trailer? Ask yourself these questions:

  •        Why do people read books?
  •        Why did I write this book?
  •        What is the story about?
  •        What about the book (plot, characters, conflict or situation) is most important to convey to potential readers?
  •       Can I use the book trailer to entertain, excite and intrigue potential readers?
  •       Can I get a little emotion or drama flowing with readers?

Where Can A Self-Published Author Promote A Book Trailer?

  •        The best place to promote your book trailer is on www.YouTube.com, a place where many readers go to view book trailers.
  •        The author’s website
  •        The author’s blog

My closing thoughts: A book trailer can be used for almost any title.  I suggest a 60-75 second book trailers—one that can capture the emotional, visual and auditory senses of your book for the potential reader (or at least get the juices flowing).

I have two book trailer videos.

The Most Famous Negro League Athlete in My Life Has Passed!

Al in uniform copy

 Al Burrows #24                                                                                                         September 15, 1932 – November 28, 2013

Al Burrows was indeed an unsung Hero. I met Mr. Burrows in 2003 at a local memorabilia store—he was a living legend. I asked him if anyone had written his life story and he said,  “No.”  I then asked if he wanted me to write it and he said, “Yes.”  So, our journey began and the book, A Forgotten Negro League Star: A Personal Look at Al Burrows, was published in January 2004. So, a simple author interview with Cheryl Holloway led to a published book!

Mr. Burrows was a kind and humble man, as well as a great baseball player. He loved the game and was always ready to tell you a story about his adventures.  I recently visited him this summer.

As we grieve the loss of a great Negro League player, we will remember him and honor the memory of Al Burrows #24.

My condolences to the Burrows Family. The Athletic World will miss him!
