“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. You have heard the term “self-publishing” before and probably …
What writers can learn from Choose Your Own Adventure books                                I don’t know how many people remember those stories that were called “Choose-Your-Own-Adventure,” but there is something to be said for relinquishing some of the writing control to an audience. It’s …

How balancing your written ideas helps you balance your life as a writer                Remember in high-school English class when your teacher insisted that organizing yourself before you start writing was the best way to go? It all just seemed like a lot of extra work didn’t it? I can still remember my …
Publishing a book is only a beginning to the next book which you will write.  However, the one part of publishing process that writers tend to gloss over is choosing a publisher.  The fact is, there are a lot of choices out there and you can go beyond simply getting an agent and thinking about …
In Search of The Lost Ones The purpose of book promotion is to get people interested enough in your book that they go out and buy a copy of it from whichever bookstore you sell your book.  If you have ebooks, you can point your readers to your Kindle copy on Amazon.  It’s a fast …
