Hiding in Water: A Memoir Based Mostly in Reality

$5.99 Released January, 2013

In the years before she was born, author Katherine Lippa’s father co-founded a group in which the participants believed they could levitate and move buildings with their minds. His parenting style was based on the premise that all people have a psychic nature and that with special training, a child can harness and build on those abilities.

Young Miss Lippa was a willing participant in the experiment until the day she came to believe that her “powers” caused an unforgivable tragedy. Told with a surprising amount of humor and insight, Hiding in Water uses its unique platform to share a universal story of reconciling belief with reality: belief in ourselves, in others, in our chosen religions, and even in those who lead our countries.

dowrite: #hiding_in_water_a_memoir_based_mostly_in_reality I am the author of Hiding in Water: A Memoir Based Mostly in Reality and the founder of Brain Trust Books. At this point, Brain Trust Books is basically one person...me. I wanted a forum to be able to publish my book and maintain all of my rights. With the average publishing advance at $5,000 and the average first print run at 3,000 books, I didn't see a huge advantage to going with a typical publisher. Add in the fact that most publishers don't put a big marketing push behind a first-time author (and consequently about half of those 3,000 books can end up getting pulped) it was an easy choice for me.

I have put together 258 guerilla marketing techniques that I am employing for my book. It's a lot of work, but I want to be able to look back on this experience and know that I did everything I could to make my book a success.

If I can actually make a living as a writer, I will eventually open up Brain Trust Books to other authors as well. For now, please wish me luck! (Oh, and maybe buy a copy of the book, too. Jan 23, 13
