After trekking through the snow in Budapest the best reward you can give yourself is a nice cup of hot chocolate in one of the towers of the Fisherman’s Bastion. There was no glass in the windows but with blankets to drape over our shoulders and infrared bulbs to heat us up, we didn’t feel a bit cold. Looking at this photo of my three sisters, you could be forgiven for thinking it was a scene from Macbeth.
Some great links to submissions on the subject of ‘Depth’ by The Daily Post’s WordPress weekly photo challenge. Thank you ‘Flying on Empty Thoughts’.

Matt Iden & Nick Stephenson two crime/thriller writers who have been working together to increase their promotion and marketing range since June 2014
I’m hosting a discussion today between two authors who are using creative ways to share audiences, something which has the happy side-effect of increasing their respective sales.
As I said on Thursday, I think creative forms of collaboration – especially in terms of marketing strategies – are going to be big this year.
Traditionally published authors may have to compete with each other ways that may not be relevant/important to self-publishers – like agents, deals, grants, prizes, or co-op. But self-publishers have nothing to fear from cooperating with authors they are nominally competing with, and everything to gain.
The market is so large that no writer will ever reach all the readers out there, and the odds of getting noticed can improve greatly with the right kind of cooperation – as many authors…

The Daily Post’s photo challenge on WordPress this week is Depth.
Many years back, we brought our dog for an autumn walk in the park. He loved to run through the fallen leaves and once we had him safely inside the gates we took him off the lead. Big mistake. When he saw a treasure trove of leaves floating on the large pond in the center of the park he took off before we could stop him. As he sailed over the edge and pounced on top of his bounty we held our breath – for about as long as he did under the water. It was as if we were watching in slow motion, as he resurfaced with a look of shock on his face. Not once on the walk back home did he dive on even the most tempting pile of leaves. We called this his ‘in-depth’ lesson on how appearances can be deceiving.

As I age (totally gracefully, of course), I notice an ever-growing Pros and Cons List accumulating in my brain.
I’ve also notice one side of the list is getting much longer than the other.
The Pros (or what we gain as we get older):
More candles on your birthday cake
The Cons (or what we lose as we get older):
Keys and other stuff – although I prefer to think of them as ‘in a safe place’, er, somewhere
Hair – it’s ok, it just migrates to your nose, ears and chin
Ability to ignore distractions
Cells and stem cells lose their luster
The battle with gravity
Nouns – this one is mysterious, you find yourself able to describe the noun in great detail – the thing you wear, in the…

Many thanks to Catherine Ryan Howard for making this so much easier to understand.

****Update October 2014 – Read Me!****
From the Amazon KDP Tax Interview guide, October 2014:
“If you are claiming a reduced rate of withholding tax under an income tax treaty and do not have a U.S. TIN, provide your foreign (non-U.S.) income tax identification number to receive treaty benefits. This number is issued by your local tax authority or government for income tax purposes.”
That’s right, folks. Now – thanks to changes in something called FATCA (thanks Marcela of Beyond Frontiers Tax for the heads up!) – you only need the tax identification number from your own country to avail of any tax treaty benefits that may exist between your country of residence and the United States. This, for example, is an NI number in the UK and a PPS number in Ireland. This means you will know never know the horror of obtaining an ITIN or the suspicious…

Thank you Kristen Lamb for some interesting tips about Social Media.
Originally posted on Kristen Lamb's Blog:
We’ve been talking a lot about social media lately and I am always grateful for your comments and thoughts. This kind of feedback not only helps me improve my blog, but my also books, because I get a glimpse of your worries, weaknesses, fears, loves, and strengths.
As a teacher/mentor/expert, it’s my job to address those fears and put you at ease or reinforce when you’re headed the right direction and give you tools and tips to take what you’re doing to another level.
There’ve been some comments that have piqued my attention lately. Namely this notion to give up on social media completely to write more books (out of vexation for the medium and the task).
Social Media is a TOTAL Waste of Time
Write more books instead of tweeting or blogging. Social media is a giant time-suck better spent writing great books.
I don’t know how to…

The Numbers Are In!
About a year ago, I compared royalties for traditional versus indie publishing in a blog post. I had a unique perspective to offer since I did this comparison for the SAME book and close to the same month of different years, an opportunity afforded to me when the traditional small-press publisher I was with changed hands and gave authors the chance to ask for their rights back.
View the post here to see what I made in January 2013 as a traditionally published author versus what I made on the same book in February 2014 as an indie author (both were debut months). At the end of the post, I suggest I might do a similar comparison for a full year of traditional publishing versus indie publishing.
Well, here I am to do just that! Thanks for stopping by to peek! If you’re new to…
