Are wondering whether audio books is the right format for you? Check out these reasons why you may want to stop ignoring this revenue stream.

Getting ready for the big #readathon  that starts at 7am my time: Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon. Check out my books. 
Readathon book selection, gathering, and stacking is an important pre-readathon objective if one is to be ready at the stroke of the first reading hour.

So it's day 10 of #NaNoWriMo. How are you doing? Having any avoidance issues? 
Are you guilty of procrastinating? Procrastination help is needed to confront the blank page. Make Anti-Procrastination Day every day of your writing life.

Yup, it's that time again when writers from all over the world sharpen their pencils, buy an extra box of pens, and recharge their laptops. It's NaNoWrimo Time. What should you do right now?
NaNoWrimo 2015 officially begins November 1st, right? So why do I say the annual writing marathon begins now? Sign up for this world-wide writing event now.
