  1. This is always a helpful series I bookmark, Debbie. Phishing and stealing, not a good thing ever and unfortunate how 2020 was worse. I have never published a book, although I have many friends who are published writers. I am thinking about someone right now, and I will forward to them. Many great articles in this post. Thank you for compiling and sharing.


  2. Well, why am I not surprised.. I got my 9th Anniversary notification today too..I did not know we started on the very same day.. what are the odds.

    Another great bunch of writer links Debby, thanks for hunting down..♥♥


  3. Congratulations, Debby, on your ninth wonderful year! You’ve given us a fantastic selection today – just think of how much you’ve contributed over all those years. Toni x


    1. I feel the same way, but Deb’s journey along with so many other’s who share their Bookbub experiences, say it always pays off. Will we learn to brave? 🙂 x


  4. Thanks for the great links, Debby. It’s good to have an updated list of publishing scammers, among other things.

    Nine years, huh? Who would have thought!! Congratulations and many happy returns!

    As always, I’m super grateful for the kind mention 🙂


  5. Thanks for including my post, Deb, another great set of tips and shares. I’m a little behind you on the blog front, just coming up for my 8th anniversary – here to many more for us both!


    1. Thanks Deb! And yes, I thought you began before me, lol. If you would have asked me how many years I wouldn’t have guessed, lol. I had to share yours! I’m losing the plot these days. ❤
