    S01-E12 - Scott Lorenz on finding the right title for your book

    S1, E12: New on #Book Spectrum: #PR and #Publicity Pro Scott Lorenz, who has placed authors in national and international publications as well as #radio and #television stations, talks with host Chris Cordani about his book designed to help writers of their own books: Book Title Generator: A Proven System in Naming Your Book.
    #Authors work hard writing, proofreading, and re-writing their books several times. Still, the small amount of words on the cover can make a huge difference between a best-seller and a missed opportunity.
    Lorenz offers his experience and expertise in book promotion to help authors know what elements in a good title attract both readers and potential press. It is an important book for all those who want to compose a book. As a podcaster/broadcaster, I will add this book is also valuable for program, workshop and event creators.

    S01-E11 - "King of Satire" Preston Coleman: The Lost Gospel of Donald

    S01-E11 - "King of Satire" Preston Coleman: The Lost Gospel of Donald

    This week on Book Spectrum: During a time of political vitriol and comedians who are trying to pass themselves off as political pundits, what happened to the good old American tradition of light-heartedly making fun of our political leaders on both sides? Every president has mannerisms and idiosyncrasies which are ripe for some jocular ribbing, so let's all lighten up a bit.
    Enter Satirist Dr. Preston Coleman, who has lampooned pols from all over the spectrum, who joins Book Spectrum to talk about his new book: The Lost Gospel of Donald. A couple of decades ago, he targeted the Clintons with his humorist glasses in the book Those Arkansaw Bumpkins.
    In The Lost Gospel of Donald, Dr. Coleman takes us back to Biblical times as we meet the Roman Empire's Donald of Gaul, a casino magnate who witnesses Jesus' miracles and constantly tries to sign the Son of God as a magic act at his venue. Coleman brilliantly plays around with the public persona that made pre-President Trump an enjoyably bombastic business celebrity to create a book which will entertain both Trump supporters and detractors.
    Dr. Coleman talks with host Chris Cordani about the book, the Donald of Gaul character, how poking some fun at leaders on both sides of the fence can be politically therapeutilc and how many in our nation might need to develop a sense of humor.

    S01-E09 - Rick Pribell on how alike we all are despite our faiths and creeds

    S01-E09 - Rick Pribell on how alike we all are despite our faiths and creeds

    Rick Pribell writes about his spiritual journey in Imagine God.
    While his story centers around recovery from a major health issue, Pribell reveals the lessons he has learned about people of all faiths in his travels. While religion has been the subject of arguments, celebration and wars through centuries, Rick Pribell asks why it matters how someone worships but that we all have things in common: emotions, basic human needs, desires, we all want to protect our families, to contriute to society and to be treated kindly. Perhaps if we all come to those realizations through our own faiths, we would all get along much better.
    Pribell also looks at the decades-long trend of younger people eschewing faith in large numbers. The author talks about why this has happend and how younger people can re-discover God (or the God of their faith).

    S01-E08 - Dr Richard Ruhling: Health, Happiness & Destiny Come From Wise Choices

    This week on #Book Spectrum, we talk health with Holistic Health Dr. Richard Ruhling, a physician who took public health to serve in Africa but ended up teaching at Loma Linda University where he discovered proper eating can reverse most diseases. He is the author of Health, Happiness & Destiny Come From Wise Choices. Dr. Ruhling talks about one of the leading killers of Americans: prescription drugs, the pharmaceutical industry’s desire to keep consistent clients over finding cures and how to take better care of yourself through wise diet choices.
    Dr. Ruhling also discusses the merits and mistakes with the current conventional wisdom about the COVID-19 pandemic, steps to take toward preventing yourself from being afflicted by the coronavirus and what you will want to do if you think you have symptoms.
    Our conversation will be available later this week during our next Book Spectrum episode.

    S01-E07 - Carroll Baker of Classic Films: Who Killed Big Al?

    This week on #Book Spectrum: star of the silver screen Carroll Baker talks with host Chris Cordani about her new mystery thriller, “Who Killed Big Al?” Known best for starring roles in the classic movies “Baby Doll,” “How the West Was Won,” “The Carpetbaggers” and “Something Wild” among many others, this is Ms. Baker’s fourth book.
    During our conversation, we meet the characters who assemble on the fictional Escape Island off the Canadian coast, including the sharp-dressing but rather uncouth Big AL, who winds up dead where everyone has a motive and rather dark secrets. Can you solve the mystery?
    We also look back at Carroll’s on-screen career and how she got into writing over the years.
