Three Recommendations for your New Year Career

There are three people who were instrumental to my 2008 success, whom I have not yet thanked, so I thought I’d do it publicly.

Mark Bennington!

Last May, this photographer extraordinaire came to Portland from L.A. and took my headshots. He took hundreds and let me have all of the best on a CD. I was thrilled with the results and have referred many friends since. If you are in the L.A. or Portland, OR area, and want to connect with a great headshot photographer, please contact Mark via his website:

Burton Haun!

Burton is the designer who created my new Writer Mama Riffs blog banner and badges. I can’t tell you how much more I enjoy my blog since he spiffed it up! Everyone seems to love it. And the best part is, even though Burton lives near me, he can work with you by phone and e-mail to create unique (and inexpensive) banner and badge designs for your blog too. I’ve been promising this referral for a long time (I was waiting for Burton to move into his new home). Now here it is! (Click on “design” to see his samples.)

Paul Sninchak!

Paul is responsible for creating my book video for Get Known Before the Book Deal (with a little help from me on the voice-over).

What??? You haven’t seen it? Well, by all means, let me post it here:

I think Paul’s work speaks for itself. And you would not believe his prices! I’ll let you discuss them with him. Contact him at:

You can view all of Paul’s videos here.

These are my top recommendations for 2008, folks. I hope you will take advantage of them. In addition, all three of these folks are just great guys!
