You should know by now I am ALL FOR self-publishing and using Kindle to it's full advantage! However, there is much to learn from those who have managed to prosper in traditional publishing…plus, I know, there are still those of you who feel self-publishing is…well…cheating somehow!
That's ok! Here is a cool resource for all of us! I love Danielle LaPorte and was glad she introduced me to Linda Sivertsen!
YOUR BIG BEAUTIFUL BOOK PLAN is a digital program for people who want to get their word into the world — where it belongs.
