I will return to The Magic River of Money....
Right now though, I'm blogging quite a bit at AuthorBusinessCEO.com on topics related to independent writing and publishing. (I’m the author of Author Business Plans Made Easy.)
Think of self-publishing as an inexpensive hobby that can turn serious and become a source of supplemental income. Start part-time and work toward a full-time livelihood. Or plan ahead to pursue your writing passion in (or instead of) retirement.
Publishing the traditional way, with a large commercial publishing house, is at once easier and more difficult than self-publishing.
I delve into such matters at AuthorBusinessCEO.com.
