It’s been a week since my last post but my newest blog post is now live. I talked about what a business plan is, the difference between a plan and a book proposal, and what I’ve been doing as part of my business plan for my poetry chapbook “Can You Catch My Flow?” in regards to marketing and promotion. Come check it out and share your thoughts and book marketing and promotion experiences.

Check out my latest post. It briefly talks about promotions and business plans, with a great deal of focus on the importance of the word of mouth. More in depth content about promotions and business plans is expected for the next post. Come and share your thoughts and experiences on what you're doing to or how you promoted your book(s).

Was away from vacation but now I'm back and with a new post status/update on publication routes. If you feel traditional publishing is the way to go, come over to the site and explain why. If you're a supporter of self-publishing, stop by as well. It's fine if you like to straggle both. Can't wait to hear from you and your thoughts about the art I've chosen as a bookcover. See below.

In the last post, I briefly touched on bookcover design based on what grabs a reader’s attention. How what we as readers find aesthetically pleasing piques our interest about the book itself. Basically, the bookcover design serves as the gateway to the possible acquisition of the product, the book. Come check it out:

 And I Was Hungry at Smashwords

Here is a fun poem I wrote that can be read for free online. It is connected to my Kindle book 'Radiant Shadows', but I'm pretty sure you could enjoy the poem just as much without ever looking at the book.
