I have a lot of authors ask me how they can get their books reviewed in the New York Times. For a small press or self published authors it is next to impossible. However, there is a back door into one of the most widely read papers in the country.
Ever thought of writing something for the editorial page that makes reference to the content in your book? Sheila O'Connor, author, Evidence of V: A Novel in Fragments, Facts and Fictions did. Here is a link to her piece published in the New York Times' Opinion section on Nov. 14.
What is considered the biggest fundraising day of the year for nonprofits in Minnesota paid off in a big way for Sigma's Bookshelf, what is believed to be the first and only traditional book publishing company exclusively for teen authors. Thanks to 15 generous donors, the company is now funded for anotherr year. The donated funds will be used to pay for such expenses as purchasing ISBNs for future books, helping to cover the cost of the software needed to bring books to market, securing tables at book events, etc. The company is run by unpaid volunteers.
Sigma’s Bookshelf is a fiscally sponsored project of Springboard for the Arts, a nonprofit arts services organization. All donations made via the company's GiveMN page are tax deductible and can be made at any time.
The company currently has 14 teen authored books available and more in the pipeline. Learn more about Sigma's Bookshelf at SigmasBookshelf.com.
A Minnesota Public Radio interview with award-winning author Sheila O’Connor talking about her latest book aired on Nov. 15, 2019.
Evidence of V: A Novel in Fragments, Facts and Fictions is the story of a talented 15-year-old singer and nightclub entertainer who gets pregnant after falling in love with an older man. She is then sentenced to the Minnesota Home School for Girls in Sauk Centre where she is to receive “rehabilitation,” but she instead endures injustices that will change the course of her life, and the lives of her descendants, forever. O’Connor became particularly interested in what happened at the School after learning her maternal grandmother, a pregnant 15-year-old girl, had been among the inmates at the time of O’Connor’s mother’s birth.
Earlier this month, on Nov. 5,. O'Connor led a presentation at Zenith Bookstore in Duluth. The event was previewed on the WDIO-TV Morning News in Duluth; on Nov. 7, she presented at the North Shore Readers and Writers Festival in Grand Marais, Minn. Sheila led the class: Infinite Possibilities: Point of View; and on Nov. 12, more than 100 people attended her Author Talk at the Hennepin County Library's Edina branch.
Her next public event will be a Fireside Chat at the Hennepin History Museum on Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. Learn more about Sheila O'Connor's work at SheilaOConnor.com.
