New digital self-publishing explodes options for all writers

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011:

Whether you write fiction or non-fiction, short stories, short articles, or gigantic novels — the possibilities are growing for you to self-publish successfully. We owe these tantalizing writing and publishing options first of all to the lowly “PDF” ebook file of yesteryear, and most recently to Amazon.com’s Kindle and Barnes & Noble’s Nook.

Saturday, February 6th, 2010:

It occurs to me that I may never have mentioned The Keyword Academy to my faithful followers here as a terrific site to learn about making money by writing website and blog content. (You’ll find the same link in that last sentence that you’ll find at the top of the right-hand column [sidebar] of each page on my site here.) The Keyword Academy is run by a couple of guys named Courtney and Mark — members simply call them “Court and Mark,” so I really don’t know their full names or much about them. Okay, I seem to recall Court’s […] Read More >
