BreakThrough Promotions - Author Services

Author Services We Love


We interview so many people for our podcast, Authors Talk About It that we have connected with several amazing people out there helping authors.  One of our favorites is 


BreakThrough Promotions was founded by PJ Nunn in 1998 and rapidly grew to be an internationally recognized agency representing books and authors of all genres. In the past 15 years, PJ has developed contacts and freelance associates around the globe who work with her to help her clients achieve their goals. The publishing industry is constantly evolving and there’s no one single promotional strategy that works for everyone. PJ is diligent and determined to find the strategy that works best for each of her clients and then to help them design a custom-fit campaign that will establish their own unique brands, increase name recognition and help them achieve their publishing goals.


BreakThrough Promotions has been a dream to work with for spreading the word about my debut book in the Webb's Glass Shop Mysteries. She scheduled a variety of venues that included Virtual Chatroom Spots, Blog Reviews and even live Radio Interviews. I received timely and accurate e-mails for the scheduled events and there were even reminders to keep me on track. When a glitch occurred, it was quickly resolved. Her reputation is well deserved.

Onyx Webb



Delectably Creepy. Gripping. Fascinating. Get Entangled in Onyx Webb: An Addictive New Paranormal Suspense Series

Onyx Webb is a multi-genre mash-up that combines supernatural suspense, crime, horror, romance, and more.

Onyx Webb is a ghost. Billionaire playboy Koda Mulvaney becomes obsessed with a girl he sees inside a mirror. Juniper Cole is on her way to the prom and... well, we don't want to spoil anything - we've probably told you too much already. How all these events are related is part of the mystery that is, Onyx Webb. 
The Onyx Webb series follows the unusual life of Onyx Webb along with a central group of characters in various locations and times. The billionaire Mulvaney family, piano prodigy Juniper Cole and her brother Quinn, paranormal show hosts Cryer and Fudge, and a few others make up the core of the series. Written like a book version of a supernatural soap opera (think: American Horror Story) each character’s story moves forward with most every episode. 
It may appear that the characters are entirely unrelated and yet episode by episode, the connections will become clearer. Like being an inch away from a spider web, with each book, the web will move further and further away revealing the full story of every character and most importantly, the stunning conclusion for Onyx Webb herself.

˃˃˃ Interested in Knowing More? Rose says...

"This story had danger, intrigue, love, betrayal, and a graphic novel sensibility that appealed to me, personally, on every level. Honestly, I couldn’t put it down, and my dismay at reaching the last page quickly turned to determination as I found my way to Amazon to download the second book. In conclusion, I can only say that as an author, I wish I’d written Onyx Webb, and give Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz major kudos for a job extremely well done." - Rose Shababy, Author & Book Blogger

Raman and Sunny : Middle School Blues - 4 Star Award Winner




The Mom's Choice Awards® Raman and Sunny: Middle School Blues is a Silver Award recipient of the prestigious Mom's Choice Award. 

2015 New England Book Festival- Honorable Mention in Young Adult Category 
2015 London Book Festival-Honorable Mention in Young Adult Category
2016 Los Angeles Book Festival-Honorable Mention in Young Adult Category

Pinnacle Book Achievement Award Winter 2016- Winner in Young Adult
Middle School is the worst period in a child's life. He or she has to undergo bullying, and an often painful transition from childhood to young adulthood. It is also a period most neglected at home and in school, for the child grows rebellious as he feels he is misunderstood and unjustly dealt with. Parents feel helpless to interfere. Imagine what then can be the plight of twins?

Set in teeming, exotic Mumbai, India, this is the story about Raman and Sunny who are twins. Their childhood period was full of companionship and love and healthy competition. But with their graduation to middle school their travails began. Raman and Sunny felt suffocated on being compared with each other. Each wanted to choose his own path, be it academics or sports. They drifted apart and the bullying began. Where before their togetherness was their strength, their separation resulted in their being isolated and bullied, especially the mild Raman. Resentment between the twins creeps in and the crevice in their relationship widens. The mild Raman allows resentment to feed him and he becomes irritable and destructive. This leads to him being thrust before the school counsellor, Mrs. Bulwa, who decides that the best way to deal with waywardness in children, is to deprive them of their comfort zone.

To the joy and empowerment of women everywhere, Stefani Ruper’s Sexy by Nature finally delivers what they’ve needed all along to achieve their health and weight-loss goals.
Modern culture insists that the only way around female health problems like acne, PMS, and stubborn excess weight is to wage war against them with gym memberships, calorie counting, and restrictive diets. But it doesn’t have to be hard, frustrating, or an uphill battle. It can be the easiest, most fun, and most exciting journey of your life. How? By letting nature do the work for you. As a product of nature, the female body has specific needs. When those needs are not met, health problems ensue. When they are met, the body heals, energizes, and becomes sexy on its own.

Living Among Lions



What does an ancient Jewish prophet have to do with modern America? What, if anything, can we learn from a man who lived 2,400 years ago as a captive in the land we now call Iraq? As it turns out, quite a bit.

David and Jason Benham are convinced the biblical example of Daniel holds the keys to contemporary Christians living victoriously in a world increasingly hostile to people of faith. Like Daniel, many believers today find themselves in an unfriendly environment, one opposed to the God they serve. Yet, like Daniel, they must learn how to take a stand while serving the people around them.

Living Among Lions is for Christian brothers and sisters who have the potential to transform their world but find themselves standing in the shadows wondering how to respond in an unfriendly environment. Divided into three sections, Living Among Lions covers three distinct characteristics that made Daniel strong: Conviction, Commitment, and Courage.

Daniel possessed all of these qualities and lived them out. As a result, God gave him unprecedented favor and supernatural power. A mere slave living in exile, Daniel emerged as one of the most powerful men in the known world. Daniel’s conviction, commitment, and courage empowered him not merely to survive in Babylon but to thrive. He did not conform to his world; he transformed his world.

My Life As A Sperm : One Man's Quest To Save The World




Buddy Price, a Hollywood agent, dies in a car crash and finds himself in Heaven. There, he discovers God’s had enough with people and plans on pulling the plug if we can’t learn to get along - a 'love thy neighbor or else' sort of message. An unlikely hero as there ever was, Buddy convinces God to let him fix things and gets a second chance. From the first few lines of the book, we know that he’s probably the last person we’d want to depend on to save the world, but God’s got his plan. Our fate rests in Buddy’s hands… or, who knows, maybe he’s just crazy and needs lithium or something.

Sensual Motivation



Now Sexy Challenges shows you how to use your sensuality to motivate yourself and your parter! 
Motivation is described as the act or process of giving someone a reason for doing something. This e-book asks if you are allowing yourself to be motivated in your intimate life. Most people feel or think that sex will just take care of itself. But, how many things in your world just fix themselves? Not many. Sensual Motivation is designed to let you take control of what motivates you in your passionate relationship with your partner.  

This book gives you the self-adjusting tools to bring power not only to your love life but, to your world as a whole. Most motivational coaches will give you a step-by-step list to reach your outcome. Yet, aren’t they overlooking that you are not like everyone else? Do they really think that one size fits all when it comes to motivation? We, at Sexy Challenges, want to honor your individuality and allow you to personalize your experience.  

Within Sensual Motivation you will learn how to blend your energy and motivation with your partner. Then, you will find ways to use that energy in all aspects of your life. Instead of us pumping you up with popular music and a bunch of cheesy words, we help you find ways within to motivate yourself. This motivation will come out in physical, mental, emotional and spiritual confidence. Sensual Motivation will allow you to be a more sensual person and experience a fuller life and relationship.  

Sensually speaking the motivation is inside you, learning to pull it out will make you a better lover, a more caring lover and a lover that your partner adores. 

Amazon Review:

Format: Kindle Edition
This book says a lot about the one thing everybody should have in order to achieve a more fulfilling and satisfying sex - enthusiasm.

Nothing is sexier than enthusiasm and, speaking for myself, that goes out more applicable to women. Based on experience, I haven't lured my man (or any man, for that matter) into giving me his all in bed any better than by showing him my enthusiasm. It's the best and perfect sensual motivation that transcends sexy lingerie, whipped cream and chocolate coated strawberries, dainty costumes, or even handcuffs.

Al the thoughts in this book are very straightforward and written in a very light manner. It comes as highly recommendable to anybody who wants to achieve more pleasure in bed in the most natural way possible.

She needs that mate urgently before the lions in her pride think she’s going to hand the reins over to one of them and let them tell her what to do. Not in this lifetime.

Kasen knows Andi’s perfect for him. She's already making him crazy by denying their attraction and the fact she's his mate. The hunt is on. Unfortunately for him, proving to Andi they're right for each other is just one of the problems facing this alpha. Keeping her alive, when someone wants her dead, is another.

Ego Is The Enemy



“While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image with sheer, almost irrational force, I’ve found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition.” —from the prologue 
 
Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back. 
 
Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to his­tory. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by con­quering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well. 
 
In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, “you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you’ve set out to achieve.”

Before the Fall



From the Emmy, PEN, Peabody, Critics' Choice, and Golden Globe Award-winning creator of the TV show Fargo comes the thriller of the year.

On a foggy summer night, eleven people--ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter--depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs--the painter--and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family.

With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members--including a Wall Street titan and his wife, a Texan-born party boy just in from London, a young woman questioning her path in life, and a career pilot--the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens. As the passengers' intrigues unravel, odd coincidences point to a conspiracy. Was it merely by dumb chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something far more sinister at work? Events soon threaten to spiral out of control in an escalating storm of media outrage and accusations. And while Scott struggles to cope with fame that borders on notoriety, the authorities scramble to salvage the truth from the wreckage.

Amid pulse-quickening suspense, the fragile relationship between Scott and the young boy glows at the heart of this stunning novel, raising questions of fate, human nature, and the inextricable ties that bind us together.

Say You'll Stay



One word. 

Stay. 

It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him. 

That was seventeen years ago. 

I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again. 

Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in. 

This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . .
