Hello Everyone!

Well folks!! We are back to another Monday so make it a productive one and get through it hour by hour!! How was your weekend, my friend? I hope you had a kick ass weekend doing exactly what you wanted to do. If not, make it a goal for the future. I planned an absolute fun-packed weekend with my two sons and some cousins & friends. They snacked on cake, cookies, pizza, drinks during the weekend celebration while playing video games and trash talking. Despite the threat of spotty moments of rain, we indeed hit Six Flags New England this weekend too. The beauty of the periodic rainy patches made it a weekend where the crowd was small. We went on back to back rides and I even got a headache in the process. I went to a go-kart racing track with my guy that I’m dating on Sunday. That was an absolute blast!! I’m in a new relationship and it feels absolutely amazing like a giddy teenager for now. 😛 In case I have not previously mentioned it (sarcasm), my first children’s book entitled, “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is now live on Amazon in both paperback and as a Kindle, an iTunes e-book, and for Nook via Barnes & Noble!! As of today, the Barnes & Noble Nook e-book is still pending approval. At this point, I have no idea as to when it will be released. I’m giving a fair warning that it is only the words and no illustrations. I intend on having the audio version of the book as well. I need to try to work on the audio version this weekend. Have you ever worked on getting a children’s book online? Are you a budding author who just launched your book/podcast!? It’s important to have all of the social media platforms and build your brand via networking with others. I find great power in the hashtag as well. My hashtags are #LeslieMJasper, #ConstructionTales, and #VerballyDisastrous. Share with me your hashtag and connect with me on social media. If you could also network with my 16-year-old son John’s “Call To Action Marketing” business (hashtag #CTAMarketing), that would be helpful and highly appreciated. This post is intended to share even more work of some independent authors, such as myself, and earn some good karma in the process. Why not offer you a taste of a variety of authors with different content? Let me know if you have discovered a new author during this “Showcased Author Series”? My objective is to pick out different authors that offer a variety of media content. For the record, I know nothing about the author other than what is showcased in the author article that was shared, via Awesome Gang. Feel free to copy and paste and share this content on your blog, if you like. As an author, if you want to add more information, drop it down in the comment section below and I will edit and add at my earliest convenience. For now, I’m connecting with the authors in an effort to build my author network. Hopefully, they will follow me back on social media. I’m game to cross promote each other on social media as well. Just let me know or re-tweet one of my posts and I will automatically return the favor on Twitter. I’m totally cool with many ways to help each other market each other. When you are a small content creator, it is important to help others out. I shared some free marketing websites in a blog post so go look for it if you could use some free marketing. I’ve even submitted #ConstructionTales to both Awesome Gang, Book Reader Magazine, and Book Goodies along with my children’s book #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls while currently working on other avenues. The children’s book #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls is intended to empower young kids to pursue their passions even if it is not normally the tradition in their society. Here are (3) showcased authors down below:

Showcased Author- 1.) Ana Cristina Caelen

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a writer, music composer, and vocal artist with a passion for the fantastical realms of sound, silence, and language. I have a bachelor’s degree in Music and a master of arts in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism. I love exploring the nature of magic in everyday life. Like many of my characters I spends a lot of time in the shadowlands knitting together stories from the potent imagery of my own dreamworlds.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Wilding Souls is my debut high fantasy novel. It was inspired by many years of working with different aspects of my own psyche and a poignant series of dreams which brought the whole story to life.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yes! I write much like I do most things: through free improvisation. I sit and let myself free-flow with words as I watch a scene unfold within my mind. If I lose the thread of the story I will pause until a character beckons to me once again. I leave my editing towards the end of the creative journey so I don’t get too in my head about the details.

What authors, or books have influenced you?
The Merro Tree by Katie Waitman. It’s a fantastic experience of what I call “circular writing.”

What are you working on now?
A second novel set in the same universe as Wilding Souls which continues aspects of the story with a different cast of characters and perhaps a few surprise returns.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m learning as I go! The personal touch is always my preference.

Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write your heart.

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Never underestimate the revolutionary power of giving yourself permission to feel, think, act, and express exactly as you already do.

What are you reading now?
Nothing at the moment! Sadly, I find I cannot read much when I am in the midst of writing.

What’s next for you as a writer?
I would love to collaborate with other artists on shared creative visions as well as publish my second book (hopefully by next year).

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
The Merro Tree, The Madness Season, Tantric Quest: An Encounter With Absolute Love, and Body and Voice (A Somatic Re-Education).

Showcased Author- 2.) Adam Pascarella

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a former practicing lawyer who now runs an investment management firm in New York City. “Reversed in Part” is my first book.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I was inspired to write Reversed in Part because I was looking to do something different with my career. At the same time, I couldn’t find many resources on lawyers leveraging their law degrees and legal experience in different areas. In effect, I wrote the book that I would have wanted when I was thinking of making a major early career move.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Nothing in particular. I try to write when I am most energetic (typically, in the early mornings). The goal is to make it as seamless as possible—especially on the days when I don’t feel like writing.

What authors, or books have influenced you?
For writing, Steven Pressfield is a key inspiration. In The War of Art, he shows how important it is to become a professional—no matter what it is that you’re trying to do. It is the only way to overcome so-called “Resistance” and bring new ideas into the world.

Jack Schwager is another inspiration. His “Market Wizards” series was one of the key inspirations behind my book Reversed in Part. I like how he brings readers into the room with famous investors and provides an up close and personal view of their investing philosophies and strategies.

What are you working on now?
I’m not working on any books at the moment. I’m completely focused on growing my business. But I can never rule out writing another book in the future.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
One of the most effective ways is to rely on your personal connections. Sure, your first level connections will buy your book. That said, the more powerful thing is when your first level connections refer your back to their first level connections. From there, anything can happen. The closest digital replica is LinkedIn.

Do you have any advice for new authors?
Stay disciplined. It’s always easy to put off writing for “another day.” In fact, there is no perfect day or time to write a book. The best thing to do is get started and create an environment which makes it as easy as possible to write.

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Life is all about action. It is easy to be overly analytical, whether we are thinking about our next book or our dream jobs. The much tougher, yet rewarding, thing is to take action toward those goals. Even if you fail, the real-world data that you receive will get you closer to your long-term objectives.

What are you reading now?
“The Changing World Order” by Ray Dalio and “The Cold Start Problem” by Andrew Chen.

What’s next for you as a writer?
I’ll mostly be focused on shorter form media (like blog posts and tweets).

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?

  1. Courage is Calling by Ryan Holiday.
  2. Atomic Habits by James Clear.
  3. The Bible.

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
