Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from PPG!

It seems like just yesterday I was writing last year’s holiday message. Hard to believe it’s that time of year again so soon!

Like many others, I’ll be enjoying the company of friends and family while we celebrate Christmas this weekend. I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a prosperous New Year. For those who are traveling to visit with friends and family members, I hope you arrive and return safely.

Not only am I looking forward to a brilliant 2011, but I’m also looking very forward to an exciting book announcement we’ll be making next Monday, December 27th! Keep watching our site for details! (Only four more sleeps!)

Warm regards,
Kim S.

Happy Holidays from PPG!

Like many others, PPG will be signing off for the holiday season toward the end of this week. I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. For those who are traveling to visit with friends and family members, I hope you arrive and return safely.

Here’s to a brilliant new year in 2010! I’m really looking forward to it. I hope you are, too.

Warm regards,
Kim S.

Calgary: Home Sweet Home

Of course, I can’t only promote my old hometown on this blog. My current home of almost 12 years—which is also home to the Polished Publishing Group (PPG)—is a truly amazing place to be: Calgary, Alberta. I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of Western Canada … so close to the mountains … surrounded daily by breathtaking, inspiring scenery. This is God’s country, for sure.

Here’s an idea for my fellow writers: how about filming an alfresco reading to promote all the wonderful things about your book and your province at the same time? Then how about posting that reading on YouTube for others to enjoy?

It’s a Beautiful World … Saskatoon!

Welcome to my inaugural “It’s My Blog and I’ll Post What I Want To” blog entry. I couldn’t resist posting this one….

When a good friend of mine emailed me this YouTube video, it made me homesick for my home town of Saskatoon. Thought I’d share it with you: It’s a Beautiful World … Saskatoon! It’s so nice to see such positive advertising coming out of Saskatchewan!

I hope this blog entry gives all my fellow authors an idea … YouTube is a powerful alternative media you can use to promote yourself and your book(s). How about posting a short “teaser” video of you reading from your latest release? With a little luck, your friends will share it with others, and they’ll share it with others, and they’ll share it others, and so on, and so forth. Do you see the potential for increased exposure?
