Pose for the paparazzi. Autograph your books.
Write like a dream, promote like a rock star.
Fame and fortune are yours!

Black Friday for self-publishers

Might I humbly suggest a couple of different ways to spend your Black Friday?

1. Rather than spending hundreds or thousands of dollars the day after Thanksgiving, why not use at least a significant portion of that money to invest in your self-publishing project? Use it to publish your book. Hire a good editor or ghostwriter (CelebEditor@aol.com), artist/graphic designer, or publicist. Register for a good writing class. Donate to a writer who's struggling financially this season.

2. Many stores will open at 4:00 a.m. in the morning. Rather than running out in the moonlight to spend money, why not write a few pages (a chapter would be good) for your book? At the very least, get up early, write first, then go shopping.
