10 Ways for a Book Author to Share Free Content on the Internet

Book authors sell their books -- the fruits of their writing labor. Thus it may seem counterintuitive to recommend that, for online book marketing success, book authors must be willing to share abundant free content.

Backup, backup and I’ll say it again…BACKUP!

I can’t tell you how many writer friends I have who forget or just plain refuse to back up their systems. It’s not that hard and it will save you a lot of headache in the end.

There are CDs, memory cards and flash drives to use for backups. Let’s not forget about external hard drives either. I have my stuff on a flash drive. The older, finished work is stored on the flash drive along with my PC. The new stuff gets backed up… Continue

my thoughts

Sometimes it is better to entrust the thoughts to the wind,

let them bring them out and sow in the land kissed by the sea.
