Your doorway to unlimited self expression

Jan 31, 2017

Gerald Everett Jones and his co-hosts Cheyenne Cockrell and Tom Page give their personal takes on nonfiction - everything from Web posts to marketing plans:

  • What kinds of nonfiction do you read? Is it mostly on the Web?
  • How do we deal with fake news?
  • What's the difference between a business proposal and a book proposal?
  • What is a "business need" and what does it have to do with a successful pitch?

After the break, Gerald welcomes business consultant Tom Sant, who went from being an underpaid English professor to a bestselling author and international marketing guru. He talks about his NOSE technique for writing killer proposals, along with his wish-list for business titles that aren't on the shelves yet.

Besides his past professorship, Tom has been a standup comic and a founder of two successful business enterprises. He's been called the world's foremost authority on winning sales proposals and was named one of the top ten sales trainers in the world by Selling Power Magazine. He is the author of three popular business books - the bestselling Persuasive Business Proposals, which was named one of the seven most important sales books of all time by Inc magazine, as well as The Giants of Sales and The Language of Success, all of which were published by the American Management Association.

In this special edition of our most popular show to date, Gerald and Cheyenne take you on a field trip to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art – LACMA. It’s behind the scenes at an after-hours closed session of the American Art Council. Gerald is giving a talk on the scandal behind Julius Stewart’s painting The Baptism, which is the basis for his sixth novel, Bonfire of the Vanderbilts.

You’ll find pictures mentioned here on our website getpublishedradio.com. They’re also in the book. He gave the presentation standing in front of the painting.

Now, why are we taking you here? One of our mantras on GetPublished! Radio is that no one is stopping you. Gerald doesn't have a degree in art history – he's just an enthusiastic researcher. But if he had waited for scholars in this field to bless his results or for a mainstream publisher to vet the project – it probably would never have happened. But as it was, he self-published in paperback, ebook, and audiobook.

As you listen, realize that even now the museum doesn’t necessarily agree with all his findings. But they were impressed enough to invite him to speak behind closed doors to this influential group.

Question for your comments: Why has this been our most popular episode?
