Description : Informative and entertaining introduction to the study of popular culture. As the “culture of the people,” popular culture provides a sense of identity that binds individuals to the greater society and unites the masses on ideals of acceptable forms of behavior. Lessons Learned from Popular Culture offers an informative and entertaining look at the social relevance of popular culture. Focusing on a wide range of topics, including film, television, social media, music, radio, cartoons and comics, books, fashion, celebrities, sports, and virtual reality, Tim Delaney and Tim Madigan demonstrate how popular culture, in contrast to folk or high culture, gives individuals an opportunity to impact, modify, or even change prevailing sentiments and norms of behavior. For each topic, they include six engaging and accessible stories that conclude with short life lessons. Whether you’re a fan of The Big Bang Theory or Seinfeld, the Beatles or Beyoncé, Charlie Brown or Superman, there’s something for everyone.

Description : Even though there exist only a few general studies on the subject of Czechoslovak American women, this is not, at all, a reflection of the paucity of work done by these women, as this publication demonstrates. This monograph is a compendium of notable American women with Czechoslovak roots, who distinguished themselves in a particular field or area, from the time they first immigrated to America to date. Included are, not only individuals born on the territory of former Czechoslovakia, but also their descendants. This project has been approached strictly geographically, irrespective of the language or ethnicity. Because of the lack of bibliographical information, most of the monograph comprises biobibliographical information, in which area a plethora of information exists. As the reader will discover, these women have been involved, practically, in every field of human endeavor, in numbers that surprise. On the whole, they have been noted for their independent spirit and nonconforming role.

Description : Writing and publishing your book is just the start of a wonderful journey to become a bestselling author... Almost weekly, authors call me asking something like, "Dr. Larry, can you help me market and sell my books? I have 10 cases of books in storage and don't know how to promote and publicize them." In talking with them, I usually discover they didn't know at the beginning of their book writing and publishing venture, that they didn't have a business plan for writing, editing, producing, printing, publishing, distributing, marketing, and selling their book. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to implement a successful marketing and sales plan after the fact. So, the purpose of this book is very specific and simple. Every book project, all publishing ventures, need a business plan that identifies the people, processes, products involved with timelines, costs, goals, and objectives. That business plan includes the marketing and sales strategies needed to put the published material in the hands of as many readers, listeners, viewers, and followers as possible. -Dr. Larry Keefauver This book will answer these questions and more... - How do I successfully write to the market? - What plan is needed for effectively writing, producing, marketing, selling, and publishing my books and message? - How do I build the right team to help me write, edit, produce, and market myself and my message to the world? - Who can coach, mentor, and equip me to be a writer, author, speaker, coach, consultant, and build an online platform and market for my books, courses, webinars, podcasts, social media presence, streaming videos, etc.? "Dr. Larry Keefauver is truly an exceptional person. Larry is an international speaker and teacher; he is also a bestselling author. But Larry is more than a master writer, he is a messenger of God's word, a marvelous motivator, and an outstanding mentor especially for new authors like me. His creative new book, Becoming a Bestselling Author: 21 Proven, Profitable Pointers for Marketing and Selling You & Your Message is a must read for all authors both experienced and new. This is the work of one of, if not the best, author coaches in America. -Dr. Dennis C. Golden, President Emeritus Fontbonne University Dr. Larry Keefauver is an author/writer coach, having written 15 bestselling books and series having published over 60 books in 11 languages with over 2 million copies in print. Ghostwriter and editor for dozens of church and business leaders worldwide, Dr. Keefauver and his wife, Judi, reside in Maui and enjoy family times with their married children and seven wonderful grandchildren.
