Meet the #PD15 Sponsors, Sandy Lender Ink, www.PromoDay.info

Fantasy enthusiasts will recognize Sandy Lender as the author of the 2007 breakout novel & Choices Meant for Gods from ArcheBooks Publishing, but the South Florida resident has been writing since she was knee high to a grasshopper. At the early age ofabout six, Sandy entertained the folks in her great grandmother's apartment building in Southern Illinois with stories of squeaky spiders and mice picking berries. Sandy won a first-place award with that imagination when she wrote a sequel to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird during her school days in the St. Louis area before earning a degree in English from Truman State University in Kirksville, Mo. That led to a career in journalism where she's worked for a variety of publications the past 23 years.Today she's the editorial director of two construction magazines and editor/publisher of an avian publication. ArcheBooks is releasing the final of the “Choices” trilogy late this summer in hardcover and a number of her YA novels are getting star treatment. She presents workshops on writing, editing, online marketing and the surprising topic of parrot husbandry. But writing and marketing are only half her story. Sandy is also a sea turtle conservationist, serving in the group Turtle Time since 2005. She also has companion parrots and turtles in her home who keep her hopping. It takes one ring on her cell phone to discover she's remained obsessed with Duran Duran since 1984. She's beaten cancer twice, but still fights the IRS. For PD15 she’s teaching us the art of organization for marketing—looking at her schedule, you can see the need for organization to keep everything on deadline.





Meet the #PD15 Sponsors, Book Goodies, www.PromoDay.info

BookGoodies.net was started by Deborah Carney in 2004 as a site for people to find books.  It was a simple directory site with links to book sellers and places to get other “book goodies” like lamps and things.  Over the years it evolved and finally when the Kindle hit and my friends started publishing books, as did I, I wanted to create a site where people could find books published by the “little guy”.  I was also involved in podcasting and decided to start interviewing authors.  So BookGoodies.com was born in 2010.  

BookGoodies.com has a mission of helping authors get found by readers and bloggers, plus educating authors on best practices for publishing and marketing. In addition to the forum we have an author’s only Facebook group where participants have actively produced anthologies with the proceeds going towards literary charities.
