Sandy Lender to Present at PD14

Sandy Lender returns as presenter at this years Promo Day. Sandy has been part of Promo Day for years and always delivers excellent information, tips, and ideas in her presentations and this year she'll be doing not one but TWO presentations!

"Pitch the Short Story"
When building your brand and getting your name out before or during the release of your book, one of the avenues you'll explore is that of sending stories to bloggers and magazines. Take this seminar with long-time magazine editor Sandy Lender for tips and advice on getting your foot in the door at the literary publication of your choice. Whether your interest is padding your portfolio, amassing bylines in a specific genre or getting paid, certain rules apply and others flex like reeds in the wind.

"Create Momentum!"
While waiting for your publisher to complete the editing and production process on your novel, or when you're between novels, you don't want to lose momentum. Are your newfound fans waiting for the next installment in a series? Some anticipation is great; that's why we write cliffhangers! But you want to keep them interested and salivating so they line up at midnight when the new book hits the streets. Let's talk about the little sparks that keep the fire burning and how you can fan the flames as the release date gets closer.

She's now the editor of an international construction publication and has launched her own avian publication in print and online.

NASA confirmed that the signal was alien in origin and made it public knowledge on August 15, 1977.

Linda found ancient hidden math equations in the computer binary code of numbers. Once she started to decode the math equations she found certain keywords that connected numbers, while doing a Google Search. She is using the keywords to connect results from scientists, physics journalists, university professor's theories and student abstracts and lab results from physics and chemistry, Space Jet Propulsion, DARPA, COUGAR, CERN, ATLAS and people that work on particle physics and space travel from all around the world. 

Linda blogs her ideas and formula's to help advance the world's space travel technology by looking "outside of the box" of normal physics.
