Do you know who you are competing with when you write a blog? The Internet is a big place for a small writer, as there are millions of people on the web looking for something specific, which might not be your writing. You need to get at least some of these people on to your …
When self-publishing a book, there is an emphasis on building more relationships, teams, and networks that you might not have needed in comparison to traditional publishing.   People do want to help, but most are either afraid to criticize or are willing to destroy your dreams in an effort to make themselves feel better.

Kindle and Kobo are two large companies.  By this time, I’m certain most writers have heard of Kindle, and what it can do for with e-books, or how you can make money self-publishing your e-book using Kindle Direct Publishing.  Some people have earned a lot of money with e-books, and others are happy to see …
