==========

1. First Year Self-Publishing Sales
Surveyed self-publishing writers shared their first year self-publishing sales numbers. I put them into a graph for you. But a graph is only a picture of a set of numbers. The article at http://www.writershelper.com/self-publishing-first-year-sales.html goes beyond the numbers to suggest things you can do to make your own self-published book a sales success.

2.Tickled my funnybone
"The short fortune teller who escaped from prison was a 'small medium at large.'"

===========

3. Interesting Web site
This site is local to BC, but after you have had a look, do a Google search for book prizes in your own region. You may qualify to enter your book. You have a much better chance of winning a local prize than a national prize because the number of competitors is so much smaller.

4. Future issues
The next three issues will focus on a general writing topic, another use for a writer's Web site, and finally more results from the self-publishing survey.

===========
