Google directs people where they need to go to find out information.  Most people are educated enough that they know that search terms they should type in so that they will most likely find what they are seeking.  The internet is both a blessing and a curse to many people.  It can foster mass education, …
I make a mistake.  I made a mistake.  I missed a mistake.  Sounds horrible doesn’t it?  No one likes to admit it when they make some sort of mistake, and, if it is pointed out to them, well, then it is not their fault.  It’s because of something else. That is why everything begins as …
I could say that anything you do you can always do better, but that would sound a bit cliche.   Anyone can do anything that they try to and put their minds to, but at some point, all to often, there is something that “gives.”  You know that moment.  Take a blog for example. You …
“It’s all about money.”  “It is all about family.”  “It’s all about my book.”  “It’s all about editing.”  “It’s all about publishing.”  “It’s all about balance.”  “It’s all about success.”  “It’s all about you.”  What ever your reason to publish a book, you are the master.

This coming month, we will be writing about blogs and authors.  It is not easy be a writer, and there is an important part of writing which most people tend to forget.  They need to have a voice — not just a voice in the ‘real world’ but a voice online. I know that it …
I have read and enjoyed a lot of books. I admit that I read anything that people ask me to read, and I read anything that strikes me as interesting.  What I don’t enjoy reading is something that makes me feel that I bought a too short book for the price I paid. I understand …
We’ve all heard this many times: you have to have an agent and an editor and a lot of time to publish your book with a traditional publisher.  We’ve also heard the same thing (minus an agent) about self-publishing.  Either way, it is your choice in what you want to do with your book.  You …
