Indie Authors Should be Using Twitch 

Yet another author marketing tool on which I'm SURE you will have to spend lots of money. However, this one allows you to share excerpts of your book in the form of narrated readings! I don't know about you, but I HATE reading aloud in public. I might not might not mind recording once and then letting readers listen over and over. Twitch. Check it out. 

Authors Guild Says Most Writers Live Under the Poverty Line

If we lived on our author salaries alone, then yes. That's why many of us keep a death grip on our 9-to-5s. It never fails to amaze me why so many people are clamoring to get in this industry when the odds of making a full-time living from it are EXTREMELY low. I question myself every day. 

How to Use Facebook to Sell Books 

I'll be taking a harder look this one later. Most authors only WISH to have $3,000 to spend on marketing in a YEAR let alone one month as this author did. Even though the volume may not translate, the principles may. 

Love this. And there are others at the bottom of the article. Check it out. 

Plagiarism in the Amazon Self-Publishing Jungle

Interesting topic and most authors' greatest fear next to pirating. Does it happen? Probably. Worth a read.
