A Review of Richter Publishing Author, Steve Gavatorta’s novel, “In Defense of Adversity” will be featured in “Small Press Bookwatch”

Richter Publishing Author, Steve Gavatorta has a review of his novel, “In Defense of Adversity” featured in the April edition of the “Small Press Bookwatch!” Below is the write-up that will be featured –

Blank white book w/path

Synopsis: In our high tech, fast-paced, rapidly changing world, adversity is hitting us at speeds significantly faster than ever (and at a younger age) leaving us little time to respond and arming us with far too few tools for controlling that response in a productive manner. That’s why it is so easy for a person to become averse to risk and to become frustrated and afraid of things when he or she lacks the tools to handle them.

In the pages of “In Defense of Adversity: Turning Your Toughest Challenges into Your Greatest Success“, Steve Gavatorta (author and owner of the Steve Gavatora Group which specializes in empowering individuals and organizations in identifying, developing, and exceeding performance goals) will give provide the non-specialist general reader with the resources necessary to survive and thrive in this ever changing and unpredictable world.

Critique: Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, “In Defense of Adversity: Turning Your Toughest Challenges into Your Greatest Success” is an especially and unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Self-Help/Self-Improvement collections.

Don’t Miss A Book Signing Event this Saturday, Featuring 2 Richter Publishing Authors at the Hudson Public Library!

This Saturday make your way out to the Hudson Public Library, located at 8012 Library Rd. From 1pm – 3pm book enthusiasts will have the opportunity to get their books signed by numerous authors including two of Richter Publishing’s own!

Dr. Karen A. Kelly, “Take a Breath: A Transplant Journey”

Blank white book w/path

In this true story, Dr. Karen A. Kelly M.D. shares her husband’s journey through a life-saving lung transplant. Learning about his courageous battle can help any patient or caregiver understand the extensive responsibilities required for a successful organ transplant. As a pediatrician, Dr. Kelly found herself in a different role as caretaker not as provider. Her experience highlights the vital importance of taking care of oneself in order to adequately care for a sick loved one. She also stresses the importance of stopping: to rest, to take a deep breath, to laugh, and to rejuvenate. The Kelly’s story sheds light on the shocking realization that 120,000 people in the U. S. right now are waiting for an organ transplant and that twenty of those people will die every day waiting on the “list” for a stranger to decide to be a hero.

Karen Mertes, “Plaintiff 101: The Black Book of Inside Information Your Lawyer Will Want You to Know”

Blank white book w/path

Amazon Best Seller – This book is to help other personal injury survivors contemplating litigation, or already involved in litigation. You should be able to navigate these troubled waters ever so slightly easier because of our experience and advice. Karen and Michael are hopeful that plaintiffs’ attorneys will see the benefit of providing this book as a teaching tool to their clients so as a team you can win your case!

Preparing for a Book Launch? Here are some tips to ensure it is a SUCCESS!

When you have such a great part, why not let people know about the fun time you had? Here are some tips to show them what they missed out on and what is expected of your next event so they make sure they attend!

Document everything that happens at your party. The more you have recorded, the more you can post online. The record increases your SEO and Google-ability when people post about your party.

It is also a good idea to hire a professional photographer . You undo not want the only photos of you event to be badly-lit selfies. We have had some amazing videos taken at our parties. It’s worth it get them on tape and then edit it into a quick promo for you and yo9ur book/company. If you don’t have a lot extra money you can do it on your smartphone and use a video editing software. However, if you can, hire a professional. Even if you’re on a budget. It’s worth it to get that great video to post on your website, YouTube, Vimeo, etc. to get out into the world.

On-the-Go this Holiday Season but Still Need to Finish Your Book? Check out these tips!

Inspiration strikes at the most random times – Don’t let it pass! You might not always have a piece of paper and pen handy, but your smart phone is either in your hand, back pocket or purse at all times. USE IT!

laptopI composed my second and third books in small chunks writing everywhere you could imagine. I used the notepad app on my iPhone. I even bought a fifty dollar Bluetooth keyboard so I can easily sit and write when I’m inspired. Once I’m done with my thoughts I email it to myself so when I get home, it’s waiting in my inbox. Then I copy and paste it into a Word document and clean it up.

Woman waiting at the airport

Anytime you gave a extra five minutes in your day, you need to write. Waiting in line to pick up the kids from school? Write on your smart phone or tablet. Walking on the treadmill? Jot some ideas down. I get some of my best ideas wiggle working out, probably because of all the blood pumping through my veins and those feel-good endorphins flooding my body.

Traveling soon? Airports are another great place to write. Just think about how many minutes you waste lining up to be groped by security, waiting for delayed flights,  or sitting on the plane while the staff fuels up, thinking, Damn where is that truck to push back the plane?


Never take a second of free time for granted! Create in the chaos and leave your legacy!

Start today!
