I'm Joel D Canfield. (Note the lack of a period after the middle initial. You'll make points if you remember it.)
I'm a writer. Most of my books are about my business philosophy. There's also a mystery, with a sequel on the way. And let's not forget over 100 songs in the past decade.
Independent publishing has changed how artists connect with fans. We no longer need gatekeepers to decide what can or should be published. Every singer, songwriter, artist, and author should have the ability to share their work, even sell their work, if they choose to.
Little Purple Books is my publishing company. We professionally prepare my books and those of my clients, then publish them under the Someday Box imprint.
My Best Beloved and I were nomads for a year-and-a-half before we semi-settled in New Jersey in the fall of 2011, then semi-settled again in Wisconsin in the spring of 2012. We've signed a 1-year lease, but more to the point, a 2-year contract on our internet access, so we're here for at least two years. What happens after that is anybody's guess.
Whether you're a close friend or a total stranger, give me a shout. I love nothing more than meeting interesting people like you.
My 10th Book Launches
You Don't Want a Job: Why Self-Employment Reduces Your Risks & Increases Your Rewards is officially birthed.
I'm taking a virtual book tour throughout the month of August, visiting a murder of marvelous hosts. It all begins today with a summary of my book by Chris Taylor, the mastermind behind Actionable Books. I think Chris has read every business book every written and interviewed half of their authors, so it's a delight to read what he got out of my book.
(Stepping straight sideways for a moment, I want to welcome all the folks coming from Brian K. Wright's Success Profiles Radio. If you're here because of Brian's show, would you consider dropping me a line to let me know? Brian's a great guy and I want him to know how helpful his show has been.)
If you'd like to join me on the tour, jump over to the book's page here at my site and order your copy now, and watch for links to the virtual book tour.
p.s. To celebrate, most of my Kindle versions are now only $2.99
