Dallas McCalister


Dallas McCalister loves to write. He cares about his readers even more. He wants to help people improve their personal, financial and spiritual lives. He also loves to write because it satisfies a great need inside him. He began writing at the age of thirteen, shortly after the death of his father who was, and still is - his hero. Writing helped him get through this traumatic childhood experience. It triggered a love affair for telling stories and creating articles that could be helpful to people who might be hurting too.
He also loves music. An accomplished musician, he played the drums in and around Detroit during the iconic Motown era. This is how he earned a living for over twenty years. It is also where he met and fell in love with his wife, Beverly Jean. Now, a retired father of three, grandfather of what he calls a small town, Dallas enjoys teaching adult Sunday school, playing in the church band… and writing.
McCalister has been a successful small business owner, marketing consultant and public speaker. Dan Kennedy, successful author, business philosopher and public speaker (famous for his “No B.S.” book series), included a chapter about him in one of his best sellers, “How to Make Millions with Your Ideas”.
These days Dallas gets to do what he enjoys most. Spending quality time with Beverly and their two dogs, writing sales copy, how to manuals for the home business industry, and inspirational books.
He believes EBooks’ are the future for burgeoning authors and book readers alike.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small mid-western town where everyone knew each other. I enjoyed school where I learned how to play music and sports. Playing the drums became a big part of my life. Spending quality time with my friends and family gave me a great deal of material to write about. At the age of thirteen, my father passed away suddenly on Christmas Eve. He was just fifty eight years old. Had a tremendous effect on my life and was a great man. He was, and still is - my hero. This traumatic event was, as I look back, the beginning of my writing career. Writing short stories about my dad and other people I was familiar with helped me get through that time of sorrow.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Smashwords, email marketing, Facebook and other social media.
