UPumpItUp Social Network
Crystal Light, a beverage from Kraft Foods, has recently launched a new
social network to encourage women to inspire and challenge each other to achieve personal goals, which they can share with friends via the website or track with a widget.

If you have a book relevant to women's goals, check out this new social network. In my experience, the first people to join a new network and work it tend to be the ones that benefit most from social networks. Go to

They have five team members: singer and actress Mandy Moore, who is their spokesperson; Erika Lenkert (responsible for their Connect section),
Bobbie Thomas (responsible for their Express section, to share your creative site), Mandy Ingber (responsible for the Inspire section, to help you tune into yourself), and Cynne Simpson (responsible for their Explore
section, which shows ways to explore the amazing world around you).

John Kremer's Free Q&A Teleseminars
The first sessions of my free monthly Q&A teleseminar were held on
Wednesday, March 4th. During these sessions, I answered many questions including the most important things for a new book author to do in marketing his or her book, the value of giving away ebooks, how to use Clickbank and other such services, selling books to catalogs and book clubs, selling books as premiums, and much more. You can listen to these two sessions at the following URLs. You can also download the sessions as MP3s for listening on your iPod.

Media Bistro interviews John Kremer
Several weeks ago, I did an online written interview with Media Bistro. You can read the interview here:


You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen. Simply wait. Do not even wait; be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet. ó Franz Kafka, novelist
