Stop It!

I have been so good lately. On target, focused, AND getting my whole long list done. I might even be able to go to print early! My cover is done (until I open it and make that one more tiny little tweek….tiny…..). I’m going through the book one trully final time to be absolutely recently positive […]

How Many Do You Think Are In There! ?

Reading about self promotion and marketing,  and I stare at these articles in horrified astonishment and curse not always so silently:  holy crap! “Blog at least several times a week……tweet twenty times a day……retweet your messages and blog links at least five times a day for nine months,  at varying times of day to catch […]

Adobe Ate My Logo!

I played with a trial version of Adobe and created my publishing logo a few months back. Now, trying to get together a new website along with my cover art, I find that I can’t open it! Contact with tech support reveals that I’d have to pay for a monthly membership in order to continue […]

      This is me, eating my words. My last review, Book Publishing Book Reviews, I mentioned trying a sample of The Step-By-Step Guide to Self-Publishing for Profit! by C. Pinheiro, Nick Russell, and Cynthia Sherwood. I called it gimicky and overly happy and non-believable- which those sample chapters were. But, during the week while […]

A Baby Without a Belly Button

The more I delve and read, the more delving and reading I seem to need. The last few weeks I’ve scoured blogs and websites looking for a cover art designer, and chose 99designs. I really like the concept of (hopefully) having several artists submit their ideas for my cover. It seems to boost their careers […]
