I am always interested in fresh approaches and new ideas. The whole concept of “free as a sales tool” is fascinating to me.

I’ve seen self-publishers use a number of different approaches, but what is most common is to make a short story free, or sometimes the first book in a series free, in the hope that you will lure readers in.

Lizzy Ford has a radically different approach, and she kindly agreed to be interviewed:

I have two. I did one last night as a photostory for creepiness when I was playing with light and a dolly rocking chair and taking other photos. It was too inticing not to do.

Tummy Trouble

And then this morning before therapy I posted about Letting It Rest. The time to stop working on your MS is when you look like this: :shock: or this: :lol:
I'm on Tumblr!

The blog died...but so did I...and now I'm alive again! OMG.

The problem with endings.

Or at least, my endings. Inspired by our very own Steph over at Maybe Genius.

Today's post is a round-up of some tasty articles from the last week or two. We have Dean Wesley Smith exploding myths, small publisher Chad Post causing controversy by stating the 99c e-books (and John Locke) are "destroying minds", veteran editor Alan Rizler declaring "it's the best time ever to be a writer", news that Tom Cruise is hoping to play the 6'5", 250 pound, Jack Reacher, and much more.

Inspired by yesterday's Wicked & Tricksy post:

Do Real Men Cry?

I turn to books and history for advice, to see if only sissies cry.
