If you are a self-published author looking to expand your networks, then tap into writing sites.  After all, since you have published an e-book, chances are people will want to read it, and if you are writing on various sites there is more of a chance that people will read your writing and make the …
Selling an e-book (or book) is easy in many writer’s minds, they will often believe that they have a large number of family and friends to count on and don’t worry about any social networking sites until it is too late, generally after their failure to sell books to their ‘buyers’.  They seem as emotionally …
Writing is easy if you want to write. It’s not quite as easy if you want to write a book.  I can make this comment not because I’ve managed to publish a book, but because I’ve experienced writing a book. There are many times when I’ve sat in front of my computer only to run …

A Rose by Any Other Name by Judy Croome Walking into a grocery store to buy some butter, we go straight to the aisle marked ‘Dairy’, choose the brand we prefer and head to the till to pay for it. Imagine how difficult shopping would be if we couldn’t name the item we wanted. Shop …
Take the “5 Songs That Inspire You” Challenge Whenever I need that little extra motivation I like to listen to certain songs that make me feel good. This is by no means a glowing gem of insight, but merely a slap back to reality for those people who push themselves to write for extended periods …
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 …
