By Jennifer S. Wilkov, host of the “Your Book Is Your Hook!” Show on WomensRadio
This week on the “Your Book Is Your Hook!” Show, Renee Giroux, author website expert of Stimulating Conversation, will talk with radio personality and host Jennifer S. Wilkov about author website essentials as well as the biggest mistakes authors make when building websites for themselves and their books.
Ms. Giroux will point out what an author needs to prepare when enrolling a website designer and why they can’t just hire one and leave the site to the designer. She’ll also talk about the important distinction of hiring a designer who is knowledgeable about author websites in particular as well as whether an author should make separate websites for themselves and their books or not.
Marilyn Perlyn, renowned multi-award winning author of The Biggest and Brightest Light and an inspirational speaker, will discuss with radio personality and host Jennifer S. Wilkov the evolution of how the experience she had with her 6 year old daughter, Amanda, and Amanda’s empathy for her teacher’s loss of her own daughter changed her life as well as her family’s lives forever and became a beloved storybook about how children really can make a difference in the lives of others. Mrs. Perlyn will also explain why she chose to self-publish the book so it would be a hardcover children’s book, how she got Muhammad Ali to write the foreword for it and how she is using her book as her hook.
Mrs. Perlyn will reveal the incredible impact her young daughter’s experience with empathy has had on others and how it has easily extended beyond her own family to thousands of other children worldwide along with their parents, grandparents and teachers. She’ll also discuss her celebrated OCHO Project which stands for Opportunities for Children to Help Others and how she and her family have found so many ways to make a difference for children across the United States and around the world.
In the Education Corner, host Jennifer S. Wilkov will be talking about the power of your participation when using your book as your hook.
