It’s been a week or two since I’ve updated here, but there’s so much to say! I’m going to start with this quick bit of news, though. I’m trying something new. A couple of my books have folks making some noise – they want to have them in paperback because, for whatever reason, they don’t “do” Kindle, but they want to read my book.

angie24

If you have ever followed my work before, you might know that I co-owned a pretty big online writing blog and website a few years ago. I had a fabulous partner, but after a few years, our lives and businesses went in different directions. Though we remain friends and still co-own what’s left of the network, we’re not working together daily lately, and that’s totally okay. So after having been flying somewhat solo for awhile now, I’ve picked up a pretty awesome partner for QueenBeeing.com – my friend and YouTuber Melina the Pinterest Lady.

As part of the Great Kindle Publishing Experiment, I must research as I run the “experiment.” So, I’ve been reading TONS of Kindle books on (you guessed it) Kindle marketing and the related topics. Steve Scott has quickly become one of my favorite authors in this genre, for a couple of different reasons. First, you don’t get a lot of bullshit fluff from his work – and I appreciate that. I am busy, y’all! Second, his stuff is legit. Continue Reading →
