Arthur Burlo presents P.E.A.C.E: The Basis for Creating High Quality Money Earning Websites posted at The Money Earning Sites Central, saying, “Hi, I wrote this piece about producing blogs with high quality content and articles. Like all my write ups, it’s written with a touch of humor, but focuses upon five serious and fundamental aspects of quality content writing: passion, effort, action, competence and effectiveness (PEACE for short). It’s the same formula I use when I publish my work on newspapers and has always worked wonders for me. Thanks!”

Chrys Fey presents Writing About: A President posted at Write With Fey, saying, “The most difficult character a writer could ever create is a president. Being a president is the toughest job any person could ever have, and trying to mimic that even in fiction is not easy!”

Jon presents The Perfect Way To Fail posted at COMFORT PIT, saying, “Drawing on modern psychological research and case studies from art history, The Perfect Way To Fail teaches us about the perils of perfectionism and the hidden advantages that accompany failure. The article also includes original concepts such as Quantity Theory and Magnum Opus Technique which provide principles that writers can fit to their own process instead of rigid instructions that may clash with their pre-existing schema.”

Leslie Miller presents A Crash Course on Showing vs. Telling posted at Leslie Miller, Wordsmith.

Book Marketing

Joel Friedlander presents Why You Should Be Blogging Your Origin Story posted at The Book Designer, saying, “This article discusses why creating articles for your blog about your professional origins could be important in helping you meet your publishing goals.”

    I agree with all of the points in “The Inside Does Matter”. Readers expect a certain experience every time they pick up a book. If something about the way your book is formatted is “off” it will disrupt that experience.
