S01-E12 – PR Pro Scott Lorenz on finding the right title for your book

S1, E13: New on #Book Spectrum: #PR and #Publicity Pro Scott Lorenz, who has placed authors in national and international publications as well as #radio and #television stations, talks with host Chris Cordani about his book designed to help writers of their own books: Book Title Generator: A Proven System in Naming Your Book.
#Authors work hard writing, proofreading, and re-writing their books several times. Still, the small amount of words on the cover can make a huge difference between a best-seller and a missed opportunity.
Lorenz offers his experience and expertise in book promotion to help authors know what elements in a good title attract both readers and potential press. It is an important book for all those who want to compose a book. As a podcaster/broadcaster, I will add this book is also valuable for program, workshop and event creators.

S01-E11 – "King of Satire" Preston Coleman: The Lost Gospel of Donald

This week on Book Spectrum: During a time of political vitriol and comedians who are trying to pass themselves off as political pundits, what happened to the good old American tradition of light-heartedly making fun of our political leaders on both sides? Every president has mannerisms and idiosyncrasies which are ripe for some jocular ribbing, so let’s all lighten up a bit.
Enter Satirist Dr. Preston Coleman, who has lampooned pols from all over the spectrum, who joins Book Spectrum to talk about his new book: The Lost Gospel of Donald. A couple of decades ago, he targeted the Clintons with his humorist glasses in the book Those Arkansaw Bumpkins.
In The Lost Gospel of Donald, Dr. Coleman takes us back to Biblical times as we meet the Roman Empire’s Donald of Gaul, a casino magnate who witnesses Jesus’ miracles and constantly tries to sign the Son of God as a magic act at his venue. Coleman brilliantly plays around with the public persona that made pre-President Trump an enjoyably bombastic business celebrity to create a book which will entertain both Trump supporters and detractors.
Dr. Coleman talks with host Chris Cordani about the book, the Donald of Gaul character, how poking some fun at leaders on both sides of the fence can be politically therapeutical and how many in our nation might need to develop a sense of humor.
