"Comfort Secrets for Busy Women" author Jennifer Louden uses technology, freebies, charity to boost book sales.

Making a showing on Oprah, starting her own website, doing hundreds of radio, print and television interviews; all these helped Jennifer Louden make the best-seller list. But with the paperback release of "Comfort Secrets for Busy Women: Finding Your Way When Your Life Is Overflowing" (SOURCE BOOKS, 2003, $15.95), Louden has upped the ante. For readers who purchase her book on her Amazon Best-Seller Day, December 3, 2003, the author is offering hundreds of dollars in free merchandise, downloads, and discounts, and customers will have an opportunity to win 12 session of creativity coaching with Jennifer - worth almost $1500. In addition, for each book sold, Louden will donate $.10 to Vitamin Angel Alliance, a non-profit, non-sectarian organization, that fights malnutrition and childhood blindness around the world.

"There is an underground movement that is growing everyday of authors using the Internet to be in direct contact with their readers," says Louden, a much sought-after workshop leader, speaker, creativity coach, and best-selling author. "It is very gratifying and very necessary because readers need a personal reason to buy your book in this glutted market."

Louden’s work has made a great impact on women’s lives. "I can honestly say that first the book, and then your website, have changed the way that I look at life," said one reader.
