Carson V. Heady, 35, was born in Cape Girardeau, MO and first put in front of a typewriter at age 3.

He entered the sales arena at age 22 and has found success at every level, from top-flight sales representative to a division leader over 200+ people. His devotion to the sales game occupied much of his time, but the desire to write never left his mind. Once Carson realized his aptitude in sales, he decided to write his first novel – Birth of a Salesman – which told the story of a young man who came into prominence in the sales arena and doubled as a self-help sales advice manual to guide others to the level o ...more

Jo Glim Hi Carson,
I'm not sure if this is the way to submit a request like this or not... but here it goes!

Please take a look at my new blog, "Diary of a Nascent Author." The intent is to meld my business and writing expertise into helpful information for fledgling writers/authors.

I would love to hear your thoughts and insights. If you think it's useful please pass the information onto your friends. I would much appreciate your support.

Thank you,

message 3: by Ed

Ed Rambeau Thanks for your friend request, Carson, which I happily accept. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS. If that genre appeals to you, you may like it.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
