Novelist Johnny Ray's thoughts on how to best self promote your name.
Being a best selling novelist is the dream of many, obtaining it is the reality of a few. The process of promoting yourself with nothing published is interesting. I've been working on it and this is from my web site at It will be interesting to see what others are doing to promote their name.

Johnny has a passion, a thirst, for life and adventure that he loves to share with his readers. As an avid traveler and professional businessman conducting business worldwide for years he has made many interesting contacts and received numerous awards for top production. He has owned and operated several real estate companies, several insurance companies and a stock brokerage company. His name is well known in the real estate world where he is listed in the who’s who of international real estate professionals. As the previous head of several corporations he is accustomed to appearing on radio and TV talk shows as well as speaking in front of various audiences. He actively maintains a data base of around twenty thousand people he has conducted business with. His self syndicated columns are sent out by way of a special data base he maintains that includes over one thousand newspaper editors.
He is a graduate of Auburn University with post graduate work at the Birmingham School of Law, The University of Alabama, The University of Tennessee, UCLA, New York University, Wil-Var Institute and The American College. He has received the following certifications: Certified International Property Specialist, Certified Residential Specialist, Certified Managerial Accountant, Certified Life Underwriter and Chartered Financial Consultant.
When it comes time to play, he is very active in many sports including swimming tennis, biking, and skiing. He loves adventures that are new, interesting and challenging.
He lives in St Petersburg, Florida where he works full time as a writer. His intentions are to market his works aggressively, using the internet as well as public appearances. His background in advertising and public relations as well as his willingness to hire outside professionals will insure that his books will have the very best chance to become best sellers.
He belongs to the Florida Writer Association, the Romantic Writers of America, the Mystery Writers Association, and can be found attending various national writer conventions throughout the year as well as supporting several local writing groups in the St. Petersburg, Florida area.
