Hi there readers and fellow authors. I am Willie Tee and I send out newsletters from time to time to keep you informed of the progress I am making in the promotion of my book, The Winds of Destiny, 2nd Edition. I will mention in my newsletter book festivals, speaking engagements and book signings that I attended or will attend in the future. I also inform readers of other fellow authors that I have met and the titles of their books. Importantly, I want to encourage others to become authors, a dream come true, and to provide them guidance on how to become skillful authors.

Subject: I am Now a Blurbian

I was checking out AOL and noted an article about Blurb is a new concept for producing your own book at home with Blurb software that you can download from the Internet. I am downloading the Blurb software as I type this newsletter. Of course, books that are created by Blurb (print on demand) cost a bit more than traditional published books, because print on demand can print from one to a million books as they are needed for purchase. However, most print on demand books are printed from 1-100 at a time and that is why they cost more to produce. If you wondering why Willie knows so much about publishing, it is because I am small publisher who one day will venture into larger publishing ventures. I am also a noted author. It is really about the current publishing technology and the fast and efficient ways that books can be published nowadays.

I plan to submit my children's book that has been long due for printing to Blurb. I will use their downloaded software to paste the drawings and manuscript of the book to the template. After the book is published and available for printing (print on demand, it will appear as a product on Blurb ( and you can purchase it. Of course, I will purchase the first copy, because I will be the first to know when it is ready. I will give a free audio book of my book The Winds of Destiny to the person who purchases the second (2nd) copy of my children's book. Go and check out If you publish your book there and after it sells via Blurb's Internet site, you will receive about one-third of the selling price as a royalty. The royalty is more lucrative than what top authors receive from large traditonal publishing companies. I want to see first hand how this book will look and if its appearance and market appeal is as Blurb promises. If it is not, then I will keep the one copy and scrap the project.

You all also know that I am the President of Read Aloud Virginia. As a fund raising event, I will give a percentage of my royalties from the sales of these books to Read Aloud Virginia. There is a Read Aloud Link at the homepage of my site. Visit my site at This is also a great way for organizations to create books and sell them for fundraisers also.

In about 2-3 weeks, I will preview the new cover for my book, The Winds of Destiny, 2nd Edition. I was able to acquire a very aspiring photograph from the 1930-1940 era as the book's cover, which was converted from its original black and white photograph to a color photograph. The book will be available for sale at and the images of the book with the tobacco leaf cover will be removed and replaced with the new cover book. However, though the cover will change, the contents of The Winds of Destiny, 2nd Edition will remain the same. This is a limited opportunity to buy the book, 2nd Edition with its current cover, which is a collectible with my signature. This book, autographed, is offered for up to $45.00 each at some colectible book Internet sites but you can buy the limited amount that I have at the regular retail price. You can also buy the 1st Edition of The Winds of Destiny at or perhaps it is The 1st Edition is a print on demand and this book will keep its tobacco leaf cover. If you recall reading my book, the tobacco leaf or plant is relative to my family growing tobacco as a cash crop or for profit from the 1860s to the 1970s in rural North Carolina.

My newest grandchild, Wesley David, was born about two days before Thanksgiving 2006. I have nicknamed him CEO, but I do not know if I am going to get away with this. However, Wesley David has the shrewd and discerning look that business people have and a million dollar smile. Wesley David and his mother, April, are doing fine.

Since I have signed up to receive the book maker software from Blurb, I am now a Blurbian according to Blurb. I am getting tongue tied reading the word Blurb in this newsleter. I was hoping to come up with a smart publishing concept myself, but what would I call people who sign up to use my concept? Teeian? Well, I will sleep on it. Since I have not created a new publishing concept yet, perhaps I should dream on it?
