We Just Hired An Ex-cop And Veteran...Who Lives On A Boat - By Angela Hoy

We Just Hired An Ex-cop And Veteran...Who Lives On A Boat!

Our one-on-one, owner-to-customer service isn't changing. Richard and I will still have direct contact with our WritersWeekly and BookLocker families. But, we are shifting things around a bit. Richard has always performed the majority of the back-end computer work, which can be taught to someone else. He really wants to get more books on the market under his own name. I haven't released a new book in two years myself and I finally realized that I might never release another one if we didn't hire someone to help with some of my activities. For example...accounting. Like many writers, I DETEST accounting and anything even remotely related to math. (Ug! Why didn't I hire someone to do that years ago?!)

One wrong move and your salary will be feeding the sharks and man-eating squid. Argh! What does a writer do to fight back when his sword has fallen off the ship? Luckily, Ol' Captain Matt Gallus has read enough books to know a thing or two about killing the problem with your bare hands. I'll show you how!

Help! I Need An Affordable Way To Promote My Book THAT WORKS!

Help! I Need An Affordable Way To Promote My Book THAT WORKS!

Traditional publishers do little to no promotion for unknown/new authors now. They take a gamble that a book may or may not take off and they run with the ones that do, while generally abandoning the ones that don't. Of course, the ones that do are the ones whose authors are promoting them creatively and consistently.

Success Story

Make Money By Putting ALL Your Eggs Into One Basket! By Monica A. Andermann

Make Money By Putting ALL Your Eggs Into One Basket!

OK, I'll admit it. Sometimes I'm a chicken. I prefer the tried and true to going out on a limb and experiencing something new any day. I shop in the same stores, vacation at the same resort and order the same entree at my usual restaurant. I never even crack open the menu. It works for me, so why change?
