Pamela Hoke

Pamela Hoke

Pamela is a mother, wife, artist, author, gallery owner, entrepreneur, marketer and all around amazing woman.  She lives part of the year now in Washington state and part in Florida.  So she is passionate, accomplished and amazing.  I know you will love listening to her interview.

Pamela talks about making a living as artist and the importance of sales skills.

Pamela discussed publishing as an indie author through Amazon via Create Space an Amazon company.  I’ve covered Create Space before because I so believe in what Amazon is doing.  It’s revolutionary.  You can do as much or as little of the actual book preparation and production process yourself and/or hire Amazon’s editors and designers to help you.  (You can even hire Welhaven and Associates – hint hint to design the book cover for you…but I digress).

Pam also promoted her book on Kickstarter.com before it was published.  You must check out Kickstarter.com  It’s not just a way of getting funding for a project, it is a way of getting early PR for a project in process.  You should also check out IndieGoGo.com.  It’s similar to Kickstarter.com and I’ve heard from friends that IndieGoGo.com is a bit more flexible on the type of projects that they allow on their website.  I’ve not used either, so please decide for yourself.  But either way, crowd funding is an amazing way to fund a project, test a market, and get the pr machine rolling.

I’m in the process of writing a book and Create Space is the publishing route that I am going to take.  I’ll keep you posted on that.  Meanwhile, you can check Create Space out by clicking on the picture below.  In the interest of full disclosure, please be aware that if you click on my link and do business with Create Space I will receive a commission from them.

Authors, Share Your Book with Millions of Readers

Pamela recommended that we read the book:  Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway  (affiliate link).  I’ve heard of the book but not yet read it.  It’s on my reading list now though!

The quote that Pam referenced is as follows:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ― Maya Angelou

Thank you for your iTunes Reviews

In this episode I thank several individuals for their 5 Star Reviews on iTunes.  Thank you to:

Jared Easley

Yvonne Mason



Two of the reviewers above used their real names and you really should “meet them”  Our friend, Jared, has recently launched a podcast and I encourage you to listen to it here.  It’s excellent.  Mark my words, Jared is going places.  I predict he’ll be a highly sought after speaker in very short order.

Yvonne Mason is an amazing best-selling author and speaker.  But even more than that, she is a true networker and promoter.  There are few people that go out of their way to promote others like Yvonne does.  I interviewed her in a prior episode that you can find by clicking here.

I will recognize all excellent reviews on iTunes on the show notes!  So please send in those reviews.  All you have to do is  go to this link, launch the show in iTunes and submit your review!
