CK Wylde1,228A Circle Share Of Crazy People - Also Known As WritersI've not really shared circles before but every time +Brian Buckley does it I end up with fantastic new people in my feed.  So I thought I would share my writer's circle with you all. In it you will find  a bunch of G+ Writers and people who have to do with writers (publishers for instance).  WarningI tried this a little earlier and had a couple of people say they couldn't see the people in the circle. If you can't please let me know, I'm trying to figure out why that might be happening. Also, if you happen to know why that happens I am all ears.If you want to be included in this circle, also plese let me know.  #writers   #circleshare   #circles  2013-11-18 20:32:284401519

Simona AN23,183+Todaysmemory THANK YOU CircleSince last year, I started to post memories of the day - celebrations, great people in painting, sculpture, music, dance, literature, film, science, etc. A tribute to the people who have left a mark in history, an international celebration, all with a short summary. I named these posts Today's Memory. When I saw that my memories captured attention, I create a page, +Todaysmemory (with big help from my friend +Angela Ghinea) and I discovered a lot of people with the same tastes and posts.Here's a BIG THANK YOU Circle with the best friends and Sources of +Todaysmemory.  A group of extremely interesting people, if you add them you won't regret!If you like the memories, I invite you to send, with hashtag #todaysmemory  and curator me, +Simona AN everything you think deserves your tribute!

Nina Pelletier11,765I have been requested to share my writers circle many times over the last year, but I never felt right doing it. After 2 emails I received yesterday asking so kindly that I share it yet again, I figured it's time to do so.I have over 500 writers in my writers circle because, hey, that's why I'm here right? But sadly only 500 of them can be shared at once. So you won't get all of the wonderful writerly people I have met on this lovely world we call Google+, but here are 500 of them.  Enjoy and share.If I've missed any writers, please feel free to add them in the comments below.Thank you to this awesome community of literary quirkiness and genius. ♥  #writershelpingwriters   #writers  2012-09-12 15:13:0750121411
Don Sturgill57This Writer's Circle probably needs to be edited, but it's a start. Do you have a list of favorite writers on Google+ to share? Please do.2012-08-27 20:46:3870000
Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 2 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #2 of the 2. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #sharedcircles +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:24:39330211318
Rob Gordon22,157*Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business OwnersUPDATED SHARED CIRCLE: Part 1 of 2: A through L (by last name).Link to Part (M-Z):         http://goo.gl/0Fcg1Link to Supplemental 1: http://goo.gl/AXXrWLink to Supplemental 2: http://goo.gl/TZKKeLike to Supplemental 3: http://goo.gl/3x6hINOTE:  This circle is no longer maintained in its present form but is still a good place to start if you are looking for entrepreneurs to follow and connect with here.  It has mostly been replace with a Google+ community of the same name that you can find at http://goo.gl/ejG9P**********************This is the most recent update to the popular "entrepreneurs" circle that posted a few months ago. As you can see, it has gotten bigger than 500 people so I have had to split it alphabetically into two parts. These two circles includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy.This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own business or venture. There are more than 800 people here, but this has been reviewed extensively since it was last published -lots of fantastic new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of really awesome business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset.This is a really diverse group and includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures and are wildly successful, others are just getting started and haven't made it yet. As can be expected, it is a little tech heavy, but represents most industries and many different types of business. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in small business issues and always seem welcome to help entrepreneurial efforts. The people in these circles post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you check this out.I do want to add the disclaimer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and this is just a tiny fraction of them - the ones I have curated. It seems that about two seconds after I publish this I always remember someone I should have included so just me know if you think you should be here. I republish this periodically and generally add everyone who comments on the post.As with all circles of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either update your existing circle, pick and choose the ones you like or use these as a trial circles - whatever works for you. I'm not even sure Google will let you add all this many names at once so you may have to come back if you want to add all of them. The technology for this is not perfect, but I am trying to do my part to help build a highly interconnected community of entrepreneurs here on Google+.I hope you find the people in this circle interesting.RobReshares welcome and appreciatedIMPORTANT: You don't want to follow people based on where their last name fits in the alphabit do you? Make sure you also take a look at the second part of this list:LINK TO PART II (M-Z): http://goo.gl/0Fcg1#smallbusiness2012-04-18 18:49:234401197169

Gabriel Fitzpatrick3,746Writers CircleA couple people have asked me to share a circle of writers because there apparently aren't enough of those. This is the first full one, and contains most of the writers whose posts and content I've found interesting and engaging (or at very least who haven't been so insufferable as to warrant an uncircling ^.^) If you aren't here, you may very well be in the second one. Don't jump to any conclusions :)2012-03-26 22:19:06499983
Meilani MacDonald1,201If the Circle Fits, Share It! - Entrepreneurs, Freelancers and Small BusinessWow, where to begin? This is exactly the circle I was looking for: entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business. I'll begin with a thanks to +Rahul Roy, whose always helpful posts of resources for new and wanting to be more active plussers pointed the way to www.CircleCount.com. That site turned out to be a great resource for finding shared circles defined by interest. There, I found +Rob Gordon's awesome entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business circle. I know it's a quality circle, as I noticed many of the folks in it are already in my circles, and I generally circle people who make posts I find to be useful, educational and enlightening. I hope you will find them as useful and enlightening as I have! #smallbusiness #freelance #professional #entrepreneur2012-03-24 00:26:5250111715
Rob Gordon18,830Entrepreneurs, Self Employed & Small Business. This is the latest update to my shared circle for "entrepreneurs" which includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy. This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own small business or venture. Lots of time has been spent organizing this since it was first published - many new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of interesting business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset. I do want to add the disclamer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and these are just the ones I have curated. This still probably doesn't even include everyone in my own circles who are entrepreneurs or self employed so let me know if you want to be included. I republish this about once per month. This is a really diverse group of people that includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures, some have startups that are just getting going and some are wildly successful. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in entrepreneurial and small business issues. The professionals in this circle post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you at least take a look. As with any circle of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either pick and choose the ones you like or use it as a trial circle - whatever method works for you. I also recently learned that you can save circles to your Google contacts so you can save this information there even if you don't want to use this toward your 5000 limit. I hope you find the people in this circle interesting. I certainly do. RobReshares welcome and appreciated#sharedcircles#smallbusiness #entrepreneurs #startup2012-03-13 20:32:12500663852

"I repeated it a few times. Mark David. Mark David. Mark David. It felt odd, an unusual compound name that seemed to stumble out of my mouth rather than trip easily off my tongue. Still, 'Mark David' felt more right than a return to Mark or David or to the other options, so I adopted it...and once again reintroduced myself, somewhat anxiously, to the world."

Happy 10th Birthday, Mark David!
In January 1998 "Mark David Gerson" became "Akhneton Yoseyva," a spiritual name that, six months later, would be made legal in an Arizona courtroom. It was a powerful transformation and one that would define my life for seven years.  Then one day, as sudden...

I first came upon this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. while writing The StarQuest (The Q'ntana Trilogy, Book II), and it so expressed one of the story's predominant themes that I ultimately included it in the book as an epigraph. Today, as we in America prepare tohonor the memory of this great man of peace and at a time when we see so much hatred expressed so violently in so many places, I offer you King's words again and invite you to make them your own.

If you've got money to burn, then this is probably the paperback edition you should get of Birthing Your Book...Even If You Don't Know What It's About. Otherwise, Amazon U.S. has it on sale today for $16.10 at http://amazon.com/author/markdavidgerson. (Meantime, how do I get paid $555.61 for one of my books!!??)

I'm looking for YOUR feedback and suggestions!
I'm gearing up to start offering webinars and webinar-based courses this spring. What topics would you like to see and, more important, which would you be willing to sign up for? 
To see some of the topics I'm considering, go to http://www.markdavidgerson.com/speaking or check out the screenshot below. As well, if you'd like to see topics that go beyond writing and creativity, let me know that too (after all, I have "rules" for living as well as "rules" for writing!). 
Looking forward to your input!!

When Paola Rizzato got home to Brighton, England from a trip to Mexico the other day, she found a Priority Mail box filled with signed goodies waiting for her. She was so excited, she posted these pics here online. The good news is that you, too, can get signed copies of my books. If you're in the U.S., simply go to www.markdavidgerson.com/bookstore and order from there. If you're outside the U.S., do what Paola did and just drop me a line to make other arrangements.

P.S. Yes, my handwriting is horrible!!

When my 15-year-old daughter asked me, yesterday morning, what I knew about the musical Showboat, I knew she was mine. Not that I had ever doubted it before that moment, of course. It's just that she obviously also carries the musical theater gene so dominant in my makeup! (I lay no claim to the horror film gene she carries; that one must have come from her mother!!). But it also reminded me that I hadn't seen that classic film in decades. I couldn't find it streaming on Netflix or Amazon Prime. Nor did the library have it. "YouTube," my daughter said. And she was right. So that's what I'm watching tonight. If you also want to (re)connect with a gem whose origins date back nearly a century, to the original Edna Ferber novel, here's the link...

I just discovered that some of my ebooks in the Kindle, Nook, iBook and Kobo stores had the wrong prices on them! If you act now, though, that could be good news for you...because, although I've corrected them, new prices can take up to 24 hours to kick in on those sites. So...

• In the U.S. – Pick up The Q'ntana Trilogy Books three-book e-box set for $8.99 instead of $9.99 in the Kindle and several other ebook stores.
• In Canada and Australia – Most of my books go up by approx. $1 because of currency fluctuations. 
• In Japan and Mexico – Currency fluctuations will also increase prices
• Are you a Nook reader? From Memory to Memoir will lose its inaccurate US$2.99 price to match the $4.99 price elsewhere, and all European prices will also rise.

But don't wait too long to take advantage of these unintentional bargains! Prices could correct atany time!!... more »

I know Toni Tennille (of Captain & Tennille) hasn't published a memoir (at least not yet, according to Amazon), but she sure has in my dream world...and she did it, apparently, with my help. Huh? In last night's dream, I'm thumbing through Toni Tennille's memoir and come across my name – not in one place but two: in the body of the book as well in the acknowledgments. And not only does she credit me, which is awesome enough, but she credits my classic title for writers, "The Voice of the Muse: Answering The Call to Write"! I know it's only a dream...but it was still pretty cool!

So, if you're out there, Toni, and are ready to write your memoir, you'll find The Voice of the Muse at http://mybook.to/voiceofthemuse...unless, of course, you want a signed copy, in which case, head over to www.markdavidgerson.com/bookstore. (And don't forget I have a books... more »

"Amazon isn’t the one devaluing books. In an economic sense, the internet is devaluing books... Book writing and publishing used to be hard, and complicated, and time-consuming, and expensive — just like putting out a newspaper or magazine used to be, or distributing high-quality video. Now those things are trivially cheap. Virtually anyone can do them, and plenty of people are, in numbers far greater than we’ve seen at almost any point in human history."

Is it flooding the marketplace with mediocrity? Or is it making it possible for new ideas, new voices, new modes of expression to be heard and experienced? 
Who benefits? Who gets hurt?
And whether it's a good thing or bad thing, what does it mean for writers and other creative artists, both new and established?___

Planning to attend the #ConsciousLifeExpo  at the LAX Hilton. next month? Look for this banner flying high over Booth #706...and stop by to say hi!

I love client success stories! In this one, "blended family" expert and author-in-the-making +Carolyn Flower (Family Ever After©) was asked to share her story and expertise on The Huffington Post. Meantime, Carolyn continues to birth what is sure to be a landmark book with the help and encouragement of The Birthing Your Book Guru (aka me)! Watch for Carolyn's book, coming later this year. And while you're waiting, read her HuffPo story here...

"Three of Britain’s Oscar-nominated screenwriters say that an increasing tendency among film studio bosses and directors to 'mutilate' film scripts is forcing top writers to either direct their own work or write for television, where they command greater respect. ... [Jeffrey Caine (The Constant Gardener)] likened the problem to a chef being asked to prepare his signature dish for a dinner and finding the host smothering the meal with ketchup. 'Many major big-budget movies these days taste of ketchup,' he said."
– Dalya Alberge in The Guardian

This quote from Alan Rickman (Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films) eloquently captures one of the primary themes of The MoonQuest, the first book (and soon to be film) in my Q'ntana Trilogy fantasy trilogy. 

“It’s a human need to be told stories. The more we’re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible…”
– Alan Rickman

Read the full interview with Rickman at http://www.ifc.com/fix/2008/12/alan-rickman-on-nobel-son. Ironically, it was published not long after The MoonQuest's release.

Written in the 1930s, this is quite possibly even more true today than it was when it was written....
"Grandpa says most people nowadays are run by fear...fear of what they eat, fear of what they drink...fear of their jobs, their future...fear of their health. They're scared to save money and they're scared to spend it. You know what his pet aversion is? The people who commercialize on fear..."
– Jean Arthur as Alice Sycamore to James Stewart as Tony Kirby in Frank Capra's You Can't Take It With You (from the original stage play by Moss & Hart)

Spent a productive day creating this banner for next month's  Conscious Life Expo in L.A.. I'm excited to be returning to the Expo for the first time in five years, once again being hosted by +Susan Larison Danz's Lighted Bridge Communications. Like last time, I'll be offering deeply discounted mini-coaching sessions and selling signed copies of some of my books at the Lighted Bridge booth. Only some books, you ask? Well, in 2010 I had only two books and a CD; now I have 11 books and a CD...and there just isn't space for them all!! Speaking of space, watch this one for more Expo info as we get closer to the February 6-8 event.

It's been a great month for my Q'ntana Trilogy novels. First, The MoonQuest (Book 1) won its 6th literary award (under peculiarly magical circumstances -  http://markdavidmuse.blogspot.com/2014/12/a-dream-come-trueliterally.html). Now its sequel, The StarQuest (Book II), has just scored another five-star review ("an incredible story set in a stunning, dreamlike universe that you'll be loathe to abandon when you've finally turned the last page"). Merry Q'ntana Christmas to Me...and to All a Good Read!!
