Welcome back! You will notice the current newsletter has undergone a name change. The former Weekend Reading newsletter, though favorably received, became hard to keep up with weekly.
The new quarterly format falls in line with The Literary Entrepreneur’s Toolkit. I’m currently working on the 2nd edition AND a workbook edition.
Speaking of workbooks, the Step-by-Step Author Website Guide is now available and includes a FREE PDF Workbook.
If you looking for an organized way to manage and grow traffic for your website in a planner format, check out the Step-by-Step Author Website Guide – Workbook Edition. The workbook sold out at the recent Augusta Literary Festival.
Alright, that’s what I’ve been up to, let me share with you some some links you don’t want to miss below.
