Sounds like a great new book for lots of us out here in blog land. Thanks for sharing this, Sherry:)ReplyDelete
I think a lot of writers will appreciate it!Delete
Will sure help out all I bet when their book is set.ReplyDelete
Indeed, it will!Delete
I'm not really a writer, but I have friends who pursue it and this looks like something that I can pass on to them. Thanks for sharing~ReplyDelete
Congrats to Diane. A timely topic.ReplyDelete
Yes, for you, quite timely! Good luck with your book!Delete
This book sounds great! I love how it touches upon both traditional and self-publishing. Most how-to books like this only focus on one of those paths, or--if they mention both--have a strong preference for one over the other. This seems like a refreshing change of pace!ReplyDelete
I agree - it covers all the bases!Delete
CONGRATS to Diane! I wish her much success with this book.ReplyDelete
I am sure she will be successful. She has a good market here!Delete
Congrats to her! The book sounds great.ReplyDelete
Perfect for writers.Delete
Sounds like a great book full of useful advice, Sherry!ReplyDelete
Congratulations to Diane!
I'm sure many writers will find it useful!Delete
Very interesting. Even though I'm not a writer -finding out the process that goes in traditional and/or self publishing along with their disadvantages is intriguing. I read a post once about an author's experience in self publishing -how much works she's put in and since then, I see the books on the shelves in a different light.ReplyDelete
It's a lot of work to market a self-published book. I'm sure this book will shed some light on the whole process.Delete
Thank you so much, Sherry!ReplyDelete
You're welcome! Best of luck with your book!Delete
I self published both of my books, funnily the first one was easier than the second but I got there in the end.ReplyDelete
I still have to check out your books. I'd better hop over to Amazon after I'm done here!Delete
Sounds like a fantastic book!ReplyDelete
Perfect for writers!Delete
Hey Cherie, I keep trying to leave comments on your blog, and it always says there's a problem, so I can't.Delete
I'm glad your presentation went well!
Glad to see you helping other authors out, Sherry!ReplyDelete
I'll be sure to check this book out. I'm sitting on the fence on this one, so perhaps this will make me jump off. LOL :-)
Haha! Hey, whenever you get yours published, I'll have you as a guest here!Delete
How great for L.Diane. I'm sharing this on Monday!ReplyDelete
She's really getting a lot of publicity!Delete
Spunk is burning up the blogosphere at the moment....ReplyDelete
