Illusion: something that deceives by producing a false or misleading impression of reality. If you are a self-publisher, you’ve already read many articles which claim that self-publishing your book is the way to go. You’ve read other articles which tell you how you can earn more money by self-publishing. Still others which dispute these claims …
Why it is so hard to self-publish and earn money on a book?  I’ve heard so many numbers, I’m not sure what to think. This is one of the reader questions submitted for this month.  It seems like a simple question, because it seems to some it is hard making money self-publishing a book. It’s …
Publishing anything is one of the hardest things a writer can do.  The possibilities are endless when it comes to living a life of writing- or publishing. It does come with a price.  There is always some sort of work to be done, and you can not simply fit back and enjoy the money.  There …

Number two… don’t always think that “it’s good enough.”  There is such a thing as too much editing, but …
Wow what a year it has been! Yes, I finally published my first book, and looking back, it was a full year of work.  I went through several edits — and editors — until I found the right path to follow.  This process lasted from January 2011, until nearly the end of October 2011. Don’t let …
I have to admit, I love great writing.  For me, a great piece of writing should flow from one idea to the next and gently nudge the audience to a new idea or perhaps a conclusion that they’d never drawn before.  I sometimes enjoy reading something that completely turns my preconceptions on end and makes …
I don’t think anyone will argue that writing and publishing aren’t a challenge.  There are days when you wonder why you decided to become a writer and then there are days when the word flow and editing is a breeze.  These are the ups and downs experienced by many writers. I have to say that …
