One more month to go in 2020. Raise your hand if you’re hoping for better things to come in the new year.
Time to review your writing and self-publishing plans for this year and start thinking about your plans for next year. If things didn’t go according to plan this year, you’re in good company I’m sure. Don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s been a tough year, hasn’t it?
- You can submit your best blog posts to our blog carnival, Self-Publishing: Carnival of the Indies, by midnight on Tuesday, December 15th.
- There is still time to submit your ebook covers for inclusion in December’s e-Book Cover Design Awards. Submissions are accepted until December 31st–New Year’s Eve.
Be well and stay safe! See you back here next Friday.
