I woke up this morning with old hands.  I didn't notice them as I straightened the bed or made my coffee or buttered the toast.  They didn't call attention to themselves as I put the leash on the dog to go for a walk or rinsed the dishes and put them in the dishwasher.  Then went all morning doing all the ordinary things, being the same hands I have had all my life. Then in the early afternoon when I sat down with a book and a nice cup of tea my world changed as my hands bro...

I wrote my first book when I was eight years old. It was a book about the weather and it was called, of course, The Book of Weather. I took construction paper and drew the sun and wind and clouds, wrote about lightning and thunder and fastened the pages between two pieces of cardboard taken from my father’s new button-down work shirts. I covered the cardboard with green and yellow wallpaper that had bright and bubbly orange flowers dancing along it. The wallpaper had been left over from decorating our 1970’s Long Island kitchen.

I was pleased with my book but nothing made me prouder than when the librarian placed it in my elementary school library. I visited it every day. I don’t recall anyone checking out my book, or if it was given its own listing in the card catalogue or even a Dewey decimal number, but I didn’t care. There it was on the shelves. My book. I was a writer.

I have never met Michelangelo. I have never had a conversation with him nor heard his voice. I have learned about his life from his artwork, his poetry and his letters. Yet I feel I know him better than many of my closest friends. As a writer, I yearn for creative talent to equal his. As a student of the Italian renaissance, I am fascinated by one of its geniuses. From a spiritual perspective, there is a deep connection between Michelangelo & me.

It seems to happen more and more often.  We receive manuscripts from authors containing materials from third parties.  The majority of the time, the included material is properly cited with appropriate permissions attached.  Sometimes, however, material is embedded in the manuscript without sufficient diligence on the part of the author.

I have asked my good friend and trusted attorney, John Hardin Young, to comment on compliance with basic intellectual property rights as they apply to the independently published author.

I tell it to our authors all of the time!  It takes three things to be a successful, independently published author:  1.  You have to write a great book!; 2. We have to deliver your book as a professional print and eBook in all channels (We will – count on it!); and 3. The world has to find out about your book.  

Part 1 is up to you.  You need to assess your work, get feedback from others who will be honest with you and help make your work the best it can be.  If you're writing fiction, select a topic to frame your story that is exciting, timely and maybe even controversial.  The recent success of Fifty Shades of Gray proved again that controversy can really sell a lot of books.

Now, join him and his family as they travel through Jeffrey’s imagination: battling giant robots, discovering slimy aliens and uncovering magical gingerbread men…all while trying to uncover where it is Jeffrey actually came from. Board-certified pediatrician Dr. Greg Marconi and Michael Marconi have crafted a funny, exciting, and heartwarming story that will give children a satisfying answer to the question: “Where did I come from?” years before they are ready to learn about the facts of life.

Parents who are not ready to get into the nitty gritty details of baby making will like “We Made You Out of Love“. The book gives children ages 3 & up age-appropriate, non-graphic explanations for the never ending stream of questions that tend to begin around pre-school. For younger children the book answers many questions they may have, but not deal with topics they’re not old enough to comprehend. For older children, “We Made You Out of Love” is a great way to broach the subject of reproduction, and it allows individual parents to decide how much or how little of the technical details they feel their child is ready for.

“We Made You Out of Love” is filled with breathtaking artwork, comedic situations and it combines the perfect amount of information and entertainment woven into a truly heartwarming story. “We Made You Out of Love” is the perfect story and learning tool for all families, one that children are going to want to read again and again…for years and years to come.
