Authors & Speakers - Part 1
Ya Gotta See This Site! Valuable Ideas, Tips, Articles and Links!
A few words about the "Authors & Speakers" section below. Since the Web launch of AuthorsandSpeakersNetwork.com, April 15, 2004, the information
for authors and speakers on CelebrateLove.com will remain and will be updated when necessary, however new articles, tips, etc., will only be
posted on AuthorsandSpeakersNetwork.com several times each week.
We encourage you to check it out and pass the word to your friends!
You are encouraged to begin your Author & Speaker journey by visiting the NEW and frequently updated
AuthorsandSpeakersNetwork.com site. You will find the same information and

NOTE: Larry James is available to present his book writing, publishing and promotion message
to groups of writers, publishers and professional speakers. If you know of a group that would benefit from Larry's presentations, send an

Many years ago, one of my mentors, Sheldon Detrick (Tulsa, OK), once told me that
if you ever want to get anywhere in life, you must consistently "put something
back!" By that, he meant that you must share what you know to help others;
become involved in groups and organizations that give you the opportunity to
I believed him and it has worked for me. Shel also taught me that you cannot
help others, you can only help them help themselves. You can only share what you
know with others and "they" must DO something with the information.
My purpose in life is to "Help Others Help Themselves!"
I have since come to believe that knowledge is only power if you do something
with it. Otherwise you will only know and never do. That will never get you
Perhaps one of the most inspiring ideas of the decade is to "Pay It Forward." Telling your author/speaker friends about this special section
for them on CelebrateLove.com is a great way to begin. To grasp the concept, read Larry James' review of the movie,
"Pay It Forward."
Cavett Robert, CSP, CPAE, was also a great influence in my life. Read "
Goodbye, Cavett," an article written to honor his memory.
Note: There are two parts to the Authors & Speakers Section. See the link to "Authors & Speakers - #2" below.
There is lots more great stuff listed there.
I am delighted to share with you my most valuable ideas, concepts and links to great information for Authors and Speakers. I wish you
much success on your journey.

LINKS to FREE WebSite Marketing Services
Doing your own website? Why pay high consulting fees where there are free Internet services that are readily available?
I say, "Have fun. Save $$$'s. Do your own stuff."
Want Cheap Airfares?
As speakers we
often spend lots of time looking for the most inexpensive airline tickets. I've discovered a
website that does it for you. They are Qixo.com (pronounced "Kick-so"). Once when a seller refused to accept
my credit card without speaking directly to me, they forfeited their fee and provided me with a direct phone number to book the ticket
explaining that the situation was unfortunate however they hoped they had made a satisfied customer. They did. QIXO is a
travel shopping-comparison engine that searches dozens of travel web sites in real-time to compare prices, flight
times, numbers of connections, etc. QIXO is not a seller but a comparison engine. Travelocity and Expedia (both sellers)
do not show flights and prices that the other dozen or more web sites have. Travelocity does not even show
Expedias flights and prices and vice versa. QIXO shows flights and prices from dozens of web sites, including
Travelocity and Expedia.
Shop for the best airfare on www.Qixo.com.
is another site that offers ticket prices that are often lower than those of Travelocity and Expedia.
