Wow, I’ve been off the W4CY Radio airwaves for two weeks, due to my schedule and the Labor Day holiday. But I’m excited to get back on again on Monday, September 10 at 5 PM Eastern with a fabulous guest: lawyer, real estate professional, coach and bestselling author, Tamara Celeste. She joins me to discuss her book, Buy Homes Not Shoes (or other stuff): A Woman’s Guide to Buying Her First Home, available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon.com.

Ladies, do you dream of owning a home but think that it is out of your reach?  Do you think that you can’t do it on your own, or you don’t have enough money saved to even think about home ownership?

Put those thoughts aside.  In “Buy Homes, Not Shoes” lawyer, real estate expert and home buying coach, Tamara Celeste, shows you that with just some small shifts in your thinking and spending habits, you can own the home of your dreams.  You can stop building wealth for your landlord and start building wealth for you and your family.

By reading this book you will immediately slash the home buying learning curve.  Chock full of practical advice, this book breaks down the sometimes complicated and incomprehensible terminology of the real estate and mortgage industry into terns you can understand.

Here’s just some of what you will discover:

  • The one secret creditors won’t tell you that can improve your credit score.
  • The questions you must ask your Realtor® and mortgage lender to get the best rate and deals.
  • What exactly is equity and how do you use it to build wealth?
  • How to obtain funds to help you with your closing costs?

Award-Winning Author Karlyle Tomms on Your Book Your Brand Your Business

I’m interviewing former Writestream Tuesday guest and award-winning author Karlyle Tomms on Your Book Your Brand Your Business on Monday, July 2 at 5 PM Eastern. Please tune in for a thought-provoking episode with the self-described “personality novelist,” who infuses much of his real-life experience into his fictional books and has recently released a poetry book entitled The Gulls Are Always Laughing.

Karlyle Tomms is an award-winning author who grew up in the rural Ozarks. He worked most of his career in mental health services and addictions treatment and began writing fiction later in life. He has written for different regional magazines and newspapers over the years, and has often been selected to speak at both professional and non-professional events, as well as radio talk shows. His first novel, Confessions from thePumpkin Patch won the 2016 New Apple Awards Medalfor General Fiction and was endorsed by Marideth Sisco who is known for her work on “Winter’s Bone” the four- time Oscar nominated film starring Jennifer Lawrence.

His general method for fiction has been to define a protagonist and allow that character to tell his or her own story from first person perspective as though the protagonist is writing an autobiography. His fictional books are about people overcoming social,psychological, emotional and spiritual challenges.

Aside from his poetry book, which features the subtitle of “My Life, So Far, In Poetry,” chronicles his childhood in the Ozarks through love and lovers to “Everything Else,” and is a poetic spiritual journey, Karlyle has also published The Calling, the second novel in his The Soul Encounters series.

During the interview, he will discuss the concept of “self-help” through fiction, his motivation for pursuing a writing career as he approaches retirement, and his experiences with writing and publishing. We welcome your participation in the live chat and will answer your questions on the air. Please join us for an inspiring, informative episode.

In the meantime, visit Karlyle at his website www.karlyletomms.com.
