I have run across some interesting articles in the last few days, I tweeted them for a couple of reasons. First because it was good information, second as a way to keep track of it. I found an article which led to a website of an author at the front end of her writing career. She dispensed a decent amount of knowledge about needing to be an entrepreneur as much as a writer in the modern age of book selling. It makes sense, but I will admit that I had not quite thought of it that way before. Of course, in the self publishing world, you are the promoter, publisher, just to start the list. http://www.thecreativepenn.com/ She has also found a way to monetize her operation and make money off of her writing, more power to you. She also made a comment that got my mind grinding. She set a goal before she even published her first book about how she wanted it to perform and what she wanted to do with it. That's bully idea, Tom Sawyer would say.
