  1. Thanks for the great list of posts, Debby. Sorry I’m so darn late to stop by! I’m off to check out the posts I missed. And thanks for including my Bookbub newbie experience. I’m going to try another one and see how it goes. 🙂 Have a peaceful day, my friend. Hugs.


    1. Hi Diana. Please, never apologize, we all get round eventually. 🙂 Of course I had to include your BookBub experience, we all as writers are curious on the gamble. 🙂 Hugs for your lovely wishes. Happy week to you too. ❤ xo


  2. Once again, you’ve found fascinating artilces (thank you for including me!). Natalie is amazing with her formatting ideas, as is Kathy with writing tips. I haven’t heard of KDP A+ content so I’m off to check that out.


  3. Just getting over “birthday bash” and time away.

    Thanks for getting me caught up here with the latest. I can identify most with being an “everyday star.” The description fits me right now. But I will never give up writing even though I may take a break every now and then.

    You inspire me, Debby, pressing on even through tears. ((( HUGS )))


    1. Thank you Marian. And Happy Birthday to you!! Are you still vacationing? Thanks for your kindness too Marian. Just over 3 months and I can tell you, not one iota easier. ❤ xx


  4. Hello Debby! I hope you are fine, far away from all these heatings, flootings and stormings. (In English I love to use the plural! Lol). Thanks for the very interesting listing of important and useful advices. Be well, stay save and enjoy life. xx Michael


  5. A fantastic compilation of articles and tips, Debby. I’ve read Jacqui’s blog post and I’ve been curious about KDP’s new marketing tool. “Thanks a lot for giving me extra material to read this weekend,” she says sarcastically! 🙂
