Editor’s Advice is an Opportunity to Grow By Nicole Feliciano

When my daughter arrived last July, my work product stagnated. Adjusting to my new role as a parent took some wind out of my freelance sails and sales! Imagine my delight when an online pet magazine editor contacted me with an offer of a one-year feature article contract.

The Birth Blog

We are having the baby at home (unless something happens, of course), and Ali, our 15-year-old daughter, will be helping Richard blog the event with frequent updates and maybe even some photos (no nudity, not to worry – I’m far too modest for that!) if things are progressing slowly.

Happy Hour and Other Ways to Sell Your Books By Tom David

The first thing needed to successfully sell books is an efficient infrastructure; an internal support system that will allow you to move comfortably in the field without worry about delivery and quality of your book. I do not know what other publishers offer. I do know that Angela and her team at Booklocker.com provide excellent service in this area.
