Members of Amazon Prime get special deals on thousands of deals and if you want to push your stuff on that day, it is a good time to run a promotion and or an ad campaign on Amazon during this event.

Sorting, Editing, Publishing, and Relaxing!

With my move to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I developed an idea that I hope will both inform and make me some money. I live for beauty I find there, but I also like the deposits I see in my bank account on the first of every month, so I think a series of ebooks on what I see there will sell to...

Falls and Rivers and Forests! Oh My!

I've been working on making sure I could embed a video link in an e-book and I think I've got it. I knew it could do it in a pdf using an Internet connected device, so I tried something in a standard 6"x9" format and ran it in as a proposed new e-book on the Kindle Direct Publishing site using a...

Catching Up... Again

My attempt at a 'philosophy' book, "Quotes & Notes" is doing coming along much better than I had planned. I try to add about 500 words or one complete 'note' a day and they are running up the word count quite nicely. I think it is already at over 7,000 words, and I'm just settling into a rhythm on...

A Sharp Curve Ahead

I've not posted here in nearly two weeks now, not because I'm not writing, but because I've been busy moving and writing! My 'romance' novel is trying to find itself and I'm hoping it just got a clue to where it was going. Once I get the hang of getting the first 4,000 words of that genre right, I...

Please Help Me, I'm Falling In Love with the Falls!

One of the things I'm working on is an e-book that has lots of photos and links of my adventures in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The last trip I made to the Tahquamenon Falls, I had a chance to talk to a DNR (Department of Natural Resources) officer about the falls and some history of the area.... Sign in to see full entry.

Killers, Fathers, And Re-Writes

In my 'super-duper-writing book,' already in progress, I'm going to mention this place for a couple reasons. The first to be breathe a little more life in here - new members equals more stuff. When I first joined this place, it was about fifty times busier than it is now. I suspect FB has a lot to... Sign in to see full entry.

The Opening Salvo

This is the opening of my 'book' on writing. 'Write what you know!' This common saying about writing is from "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain. Back when Twain was writing, that was a valid point. If you never traveled far from the family farm or... Sign in to see full entry.

Arrogance, Thy Name is V!

I'm slowly getting back into the habit of writing on a daily basis again. I never really stopped, but due to circumstances, I was only able to write 250 to 500 words a day, and not on a story arc, but just random notes. Of course, I'm making use of those notes. I've moved along fairly well on my... Sign in to see full entry.

Half A Review - More To Follow But I'm Fishing For Info

I'm currently reading another 'How To Write a Zillion Words A Day & Churn Out Thirty Books A Month' type book. Why I do this is beyond me, but I did learn something from it. The real book is titled " The Five Day Novel: The How To Guide For Writing Faster & Optimizing Your Workflow " by Scott King.... Sign in to see full entry.
