The Knoxville News Sentinel: Farragut Shopper Covers Jon B. Dalvy’s Talk on Marketing and Publishing Successful Books


This past summer, Titha Mae Series author Jon B. Dalvy presented the annual Authors’ Guild of Tennessee “Authors Talk” to an audience at Mimi’s Cafe in Turkey Creek, Knoxville, TN.

Knoxville News Sentinel reporter Margie Hagen (Shopper News) covered the event, and was present for Dalvy’s talk, noting:

“So glad to have the opportunity to meet you and Brandee at the AGT dinner last week.  Your presentation was filled with savvy tips for members who may not realize the power of social media.  You made it informative and fun, so thanks for that.  I was expecting a “snobby author”, but was pleasantly surprised by you and Brandee.  Stay cool.

– Margie
EDITOR’s NOTE: The Ballad of Titha Mae is in no way similar to popular series GAME OF THRONES. It is an advancing readers level series aimed at the same ages as The Hobbit, Harry Potter, etc. To read the full article, please click on the headline above, or here.
The talk was a hit, and the resulting article from the Sentinel’s Farragut Shopper News hit stands shortly after. We’re thrilled with their thoughtful coverage and look forward to many more successful outings from both organizations.
Thanks again to Margie, the Sentinel, and the Authors’ Guild of Tennessee for all the fantastic work these community leaders do for creatives here in Tennessee.
All the best,

Nechalec Press

Nechalec Press’s Review of The Ballad of Titha Mae Glows With 5-Star Praise!, one of the world’s premiere fantasy literature websites, has posted their review of The Ballad of Titha Mae and it is, to say the least, glowing! We’re beyond thrilled to have such a phenomenal review showcasing Titha Mae and her adventure, message, companions, and heart!

The book made its way all the way to Finland to be reviewed by the wonderful Sami Airola, and she clearly fell in love with Titha’s tale. We’re elated!

The Ballad of Titha Mae is one of the best children’s fantasy novels I’ve ever read. It’s charmingly old-fashioned and the story is excellent. I enjoyed it a lot and was mesmerised by the mythological elements. It’s been a while since I’ve read anything as good and entertaining as this novel.” – Sami Airola,
