Picnics, barbecues, parades and gatherings with family and friends are on the minds of many of us here in North America. It’s a long weekend here in Canada this weekend and in the USA next weekend as we celebrate Canada Day and the 4th of July respectively. Whether you’re in North America or reading this from afar, I hope you’re able to find some time to read this week’s selection of articles.

And, don’t forget that you have until midnight to submit your ebook cover to our e-Book Cover Design Awards contest for June.

Brian Jud on Nonfiction Authors Association
Create Multiple Sources Of Revenue
“It is difficult to make a living as an independent publisher if you view yourself as a purveyor of books through bookstores. When asked, “What do you do for a living?” you may respond, “I’m an author.” This is usually followed with, “But what do you do to earn money?””

Dan Wagstaff on The Casual Optimist
