    Author & Entrepreneur Zane Carson Carruth

    As a writer of children’s books, she understands the value of childhood literacy. She does everything she can to promote early childhood reading.  One of her greatest joys as an author is donating her books to young children. Zane sponsored the Storybook Opera to Northland Christian School and donated a book to every child in Pre-K through 1st grade. Over 125 students left the performance with their own signed copies of her book.
    The Houston Grand Opera and Discovery Green Conservatory held a 3-day spring break event at the park based on her Worlds First Tooth Fairy book.  Every child in attendance for all three days received a personal autographed book.  She has also donated several hundred of her books to the non-profit organization Books Between Kids.
    Living a generous life was instilled for Zane at a very young age. Her mother was very active in donating her time and resources to those less fortunate than she. It was a way of life for her growing up and continues to this day.
    Zane is proud to call Houston home and generously gives of her time and resources to ensure Houston stays one of the top cities in the nation. She has done an incredible job of fundraising for causes that are near and dear to her heart. She and her husband, Brady, chaired the 2017 Houston Grand Opera Ball which raised $1.75 M, the 10-year anniversary Discovery Green Conservancy Gala in 2019 that raised $1.2M as well as the 2019 SPCA Gala held in the beautiful new Carruth Education Center.
    Zane owns Carson Marketing, LLC, a Houston-based, full-service marketing company that provides integrated marketing solutions for businesses. She also owns Etiquette to Excel and is a certified business etiquette and protocol professional.

    "How to Promote Your Book Without Being 'Salesy' or Spammy" with Author Flora Brown

    "How to Promote Your Book Without Being 'Salesy' or Spammy" with Author Flora Brown

    Flora Brown is an author, book coach, and a confirmed coffee snob with an unhealthy love of British murder mysteries.

    Four out of five people want to write a book but many of them never will because they fear getting started. Those who push through that fear of writing and successfully publish their books never sell more than a few copies because they fear asking for the sale. You will learn ways to reframe the way you think about selling so you can create the optimum book sales you deserve.

    When Flora's not writing, traveling, or researching (OK, spending too much time on the net) she helps aspiring authors steer clear of self-publishing pitfalls to potholes. When it was clear early on that she wouldn't become an accomplished pianist and make her mother proud, she turned her love of bossing other people around into a 40-year teaching career, goading students toward excellence in junior high through university levels. She is almost finished making changes to the 2nd edition of her book, Color Your Life Happy--at least that's what she tells her impatient editor.

    In the meantime check out her websites:

I was working part time to save money to start my image consulting firm, so I figured this would be a great way to add in some revenue while the business gets up and running." She left her corporate job in the fall and started getting business owners together at a local book store café. "I still remember my first Monday after I left my job, I got up that morning and thought, what have I done??? Although there's been a lot of bumps in the road I don't regret my decision one bit.

Eva Jannotta ,

Highly recommend!

I love Deborah’s emphasis on building community, bolstering women’s economic power, and helping women entrepreneurs succeed. She selects great guests (I learned of her through Eleanor Beaton!), and her background as a published fiction and nonfiction author is especially appealing. I’m an avid reader, and the fact that Deborah brings that perspective resonates with me. The conversations Coach Deb’s hosting about staying motivated and connected to one’s passion are so important. Highly recommend!

KServi ,

Love this Podcast!

I recently listened to the episode with Nancy McKay. Hearing her past, what she went though and her vulnerabilty was so refreshing to hear. She's absolutely right, the thoughts in our head become our reality. This was a wonderful interview, Deborah. Thank you for putting this out!

Karileed ,
