Diane Phelps Budden spent over 30 years in corporate and academic marketing before beginning her writing career, and self-publishing Shade; a story about a very smart raven. With this experience, she wrote and self-published The Author’s Concise Guide to Marketing: how to jumpstart sales of your self-published book for first-time authors needing marketing skills. Shade; a story about a very smart raven was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered. After writing Shade’s story, the author wanted to share what she had learned about raven behavior with other raven lovers, so she wrote The Un-Common Raven: one smart bird.
