Title: The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won’t

     Carolyn Howard-Johnson (yep, that’s her real name) wrote a book for the published and unpublished author that can make her readers feel as if they’ve earned a PhD in publicity. In this era of cash-crunched PR budgets and time consumed publishing house staff members, The Frugal Book Promoter is an important item for empowering any author’s publicity planning.

 

      First published in 2004, The Frugal Book Promoter is being updated with the newest information regarding contact information for publishers and editors, copyright filing methods and pricing, plus much more. Even so, the first edition of this marvelous publicity how-to kit in E-book or paperback form can teach you how to prepare your press releases, how to put together and t use a power-packed media release, how to select appropriate publicity materials, and how to strategize your PR efforts. You’ll be well on your way to learning how to stand out with attention-grabbing releases, how to build your media kit before you need it, and how to build your credentials as an author.

 

      Grab a highlighter in your favorite color to underscore the author’s tips for conquering your fears and how to power up your public relations efforts. You won’t have to go searching during subsequent readings for the author’s definitions of ARCs, her lists of excellent (and creative!) publicity ideas, the clues for assembling the puzzle pieces of your media release, and suggested reading materials, among other need-to-know items.

 

      Public relations work is not a game but a cleverly prepared campaign that accomplishes several goals for the PR client. The business has some critical no-no’s. Learn how to faultlessly finesse your needs without your publisher’s help, and without killing your budget or wishing you had one.

 

      When you get a publishing contract, you’ll be able to weigh its pros and cons with author Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s help in Chapter Eight. You’ll even learn what to demand for the dustcover of your book.

 

      How to benefit from writer’s conferences, book fairs, how to get book reviews and even how to use Amazon.com listings to your advantage as an author are part of this impressive publication.

 

      Carolyn Howard-Johnson is an experienced publicity expert. The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won’t is available in paperback or as an E-book.

Title: The Kosher Grapevine: Exploring the World of Wine
Author: Irving Langer
Publisher: Gefen

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book. Page 249 explains why some Jews are praised as “fish on dry land,” a phrase that describes Moshe Rabeinu. Am Yisrael began to appreciate his depth of character at kriat Yam Suf, realizing that “he lived in the revealed world as though he were in the concealed world.”

Author Irving Langer provides his own look at wine-making as well as the nature of the storage barrels used to age wines for taste perfection. He intersperses the book with Jewish historical facts and figures, a few jokes and photographs, and advice on how to pair wines with specific foods.

Unlike formulaic biographies from popular publishing houses in the Orthodox Jewish world, Beyond Politics is not predictable. The vignettes of individual men and women who trekked through Ethiopia and Sudan, flew in from Austria, India, and Algeria, or were born on Israeli soil are gritty, adventurous, and heartwarming.

Title: The Koren Ethiopian Haggada Journey to Freedom: Celebrating Ethiopian Jewish History, Traditions & Customs
Editor: Rabbi Menachem Waldman
Publisher: Koren Publishing

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
