Today, we’re going to look at one way you can check if a category might be easy to break into. Again, there are several ways to do this. This is how I do, when I don’t use a tool (more about tools later). First, I go to Amazon and pick “Kindle Store” in their search […]

Who’s going to kick your achoo?

By Britt Malka / September 11, 2017

Gesundheit! But really, have you thought about that? Being your own boss, whether it’s in your spare time or you’re full time going to become a writer, means that you’re the one to crack the whip.

Why fast is good

By Britt Malka / September 7, 2017

Yesterday, I read about an author who’d taken his time to write a novel… And somewhere between chapter 1 and chapter 30, his main character changed name from Mark to Anthony. Why?

Still learning
