You’re about to have a book published.  Are you ready for this event? You might be thinking at the moment, the book is finished, it’s been edited, it’s been re-edited and then it’s been looked over by others, and the cover looks great and it’s all done.  There aren’t many mistakes, and for the most …
Are you writing blogs because you want to write or for something else? This is a challenge- using an old typewriter It’s not as if you can interact with each person in the world, and even if you could, there is the problem with time zones, and languages, and just about every other type of …
Writing well on the Internet simply means being smart about it. For most people writing on the web, is about blogging, and for many this will be about making money.

There aren’t many people who would argue that the Beatles have influence- or rather don’t have influence.  Even fewer still would argue that they have never heard of them.  They are the most successful rock band of the 1960s—possibly of the twentieth century. I would also argue the twenty-first, but since there is much of …
I’ve always been interested in the fact that some writers will proclaim that to get visitors to their blog means that they will make money with their books.  I would assume this to be true for writers who have a large following on Facebook should, in theory have plenty of book sales under their belt. …
