7 Dirty Little Book Publishing Secrets that Every Writer Needs to Know | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Paris Hilton has one. Rob Lowe has one too. Even Sharon Osbourne’s got one. 


Get your mind out of the gutter people — I’m talking about books.

How to Write a High-Quality eBook in 30 Days | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

What if, 30 days from now, you had a finished, well-crafted eBook sitting on your hard drive, ready to distribute and sell?

 

That might sound next-to-impossible to you, but it’s not.

 

Every November, over 200,000 people worldwide take part in NaNoWriMo — “(inter)National Novel Writing Month”. NaNoWriMo participants aim to write 50,000 words during the month, and tens of thousands of them manage to do it.
