I’ve moved on from this project. My most recent site is New Jersey Project Manager.
This is a relativity new blog that I created to help promote my future line of baby books. Of course I’m not published yet. I don’t have a publisher, and I don’t have an agent. All I have are my ideas, a few written words and website or two.
So can I call myself an author. I wouldn’t just yet. I did go to Book Expo America the other day. It was cool. My badge said published author. Michael Ian Black asked me what my book was about, and I proceed to explain to him that I hadn’t actually published a book yet… so that was fun.
Anyway to go along with my website and blog, I’ve created a Google plus page and a Facebook page for my main brand. You can find these below:

I’ve also been very active on Twitter, but I’m not going to link to my Twitter account… Why? Well, I don’t really need to promote it right now. And who needs new followers? Not this guy. After all I can buy 5,000 for $5 off of fiverr.com. If you want followers, I would check them out.
So now I’m just rambling, but the next thing I really need to do is to get an agent. I really think that this is the best way that I can get published. After all sometimes “it’s not what you know, but who you know”. And I really believe that that’s true a lot of the time.
Just think about it. The leaders of our world are there because of who they know. The large majority of them grew up privileged with rich families and a lot of connections. They said anyone could be president, but Obama is a Harvard grad. Bush went to a Ivy league school too. Not sure about Bill Clinton, but I know that Romney grew up in private boarding schools, and his father was a Michigan Senator. But I digress…
So I need to meet a few people in the publishing industry. And I think the one of the best ways to do this would be by joining the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Someone I talked to at the Book Expo also recommended a website that I should check out. I don’t remember what it is now, but I have it written down somewhere, so I’m sure I’ll find it months from now and probably throw it out.
So am I at 500 words yet? I think I’m past it, but I have no way of knowing because I’m writing this in my email to post tomorrow. I’m not really going to get into why I’m doing this. It’s a boring story. Anyway since I’m at 500 words, which is my usual target, I think I’m going to stop writing now. If you’ve managed to read through all my ramblings, I appreciate it.
Thanks for visiting my site! Please come back again.
