Stuart J Kamille is an author and businessman. He started in the advertising business introducing products for a number of highly successful companies. As part of his experience building businesses, he developed a variety of new ways to distribute coupons and attract customers. One of those ways was to offer commercial games to customers, which required no purchase. You"ve probably played McDonald's Scrabble or Monopoly. Lots of people did. They are still in use today
Along the way Kamille acquired a number of different patents dealing with scoring, handling and printing of large numbers of game pieces and coupons. This valuable experience formed the basis for several books and lectures based on building businesses and creative innovation.How To Sell Your Idea; (see below) was one of those books.
Life's too short not to have fun. So some of his later work has a different focus . The Short Thoughts Series is much different and not as serious. They contain some interesting ideas that you might find amusing.
Kamille is a frequent guest lecturer at the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business in Athens Georgia and the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno. Some of his lectures are available on You Tube.
Kamille holds a number of US Patents in such diverse fields as mathematics, statistics, and scoring and analysis of data. His books are available through most major bookstores, on line at Amazon. Com, Scribd. Com and Smashwords. Com.
He is currently working on a study of the development of consciousness, a book on creating new products and a variety of humorous works.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Over the years I've introduced a lot of successful products (some were not so successful too). I began to notice that the successful ones all had similar characteristics even though they were in widely differing fields. So that's what I put into HOW TO SELL YOUR IDEA. It covers a lot more than just what makes a product successful because that's the easy part. It also covers things a new inventor wouldn't know such as how to protect his idea, how to present it, how to write a contract, and how to get paid. That took me years to learn and I want to make that information available to others.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've written a number of books as you can see. They cover different topics. Regular publishers have a template that the author is supposed to fit into. That requires that all your books should be in the same area that your last book was in. HOW TO SELL YOUR IDEA is pretty well known, but then I wrote START SELLING SMART and it doesn't deal with patents or creativity at all. A regular publisher wants a consistent product and to them changing fields means the author as a "brand" has to be developed all over again. In short, to publishers', the author is simply a product and they don't want the author roaming around from field to field. Publishing what I like, when I like suits, me better. The reader can sample and determine if any of my works have value.
Selling an idea is complex. It can be a long and painful journey.

It's written by someone with 40 years of experience developing ideas and successfully selling them.
