Hi gang,

I just posted a blog here on 48 Days which I thought might be of interest to other writers, publishers, and entrepreneurs. It explains how I'm using public domain content and Amazon's Kindle Store to earn extra income. Here's the link:

Passive Income (S.W.I.S.S. Dollars), Public Domain Books, and the K...

Have a great night!

Hi all, I wanted to share my review from Writer's Digest.  I entered a contest for self-published books, didn't win, but the review was pretty good. 

Structure and Organization: 5
 
Grammar: 5
  
Production Quality and Cover Design: 4        
 
Plot (if applicable): 0
 
Character Development (if applicable): 0
 
 What did you like best about this book?
 
This was a great read.  Inspiring.  I liked your format:  First to introduce and tell a bit about the entrepreneurs, then to pick the questions that will best show how that person thinks and what made/makes the business successful.  I also like your pages of resources and reminders between the chapters.  Section IV, listing so many resources gives this book authority.  I was impressed by the variety of ideas for small businesses you presented.  This was such an easy, fun, and interesting book to read.  Some of the answers surprised me like how many people didn't start with a business plan.  I imagine that goes against everything taught in the best Business Schools. That should be encouraging to all those people with great ideas who didn't go to Business School.  This book should be in every unemployment office to be read by the applicants who are standing in the long lines.  From your interviews I realize the importance of the social media sites.  I like Tommy V citing the importance of finding his target market.  That's very important for book-writers too.
 
 
How can the author improve this book?
 
There is little I could suggest to improve this book.  It is well-thought-out and well-written.  The people and products you chose were so varied that I'm sure your readers will be able to use this as a stepping stone to their own ideas.  But there is that target market aspect.  Writing a book and getting it into the hands of a large market are very similar to the questions you asked your subjects.  Despite the accepted editorial advice, my personal opinion is to write with an eye on the target market.  These days it's a good idea to have a game plan before you write the book. The internet seems a logical way to set this book into the hands of the readers and eventually that will probably be the best way to go.  But not just yet. The real money still comes from major trade publishers.  Ideally we all want our books in libraries and bookstores, whose buyers often choose their books based on the opinions of major reputable reviewers.   Unfortunately it is in the best interest of these major reviewers to concentrate on the books  published by major publishers.  I'm not sure your title that somewhat disses the corporate world was a good idea.  Publishers are big corporations.  Good luck in your own entrepreneurship.

That's awesome Jen! Excited to see your growth and be a part of that!

Thanks Kent Sanders for subscribing!!

Tammy, as much as I prefer to interview with headphones, I am planning on using a old fashioned plug in the wall telephone. I know blogpostradio isn't as good sounding as podcasts can be, however I like how simple and easy it is for me to use. Plus it gives me another platform to be on. The show is nearing 10,000 listens since it started last month. So while it had its downsides, it works around my priorities and goals.
