    Reading all those great writers tips confirmed one thing I have always felt. Every writer has his or her own process of creating, and it is absolutely right–for them.
    As for e-book publishing, I am guessing that it is just in its infancy. I think that it will become the standard at some point.

      I agree Jonah. On both counts. Watching the evolution (revolution) of e-book publishing is so exciting and offers us so many more options as writers.

    So true Jonah, it appears most writers have their own formula and one’s way of success will not necessarily apply to others. Darcy Chan’s story is inspiring. How many people do well on one book? It’s a rarity.

    I certainly hope to do well on my eBooks.
