Power of Money When Flat Broke

The Power of Money When You Are Flat Broke Hi- my name is Kim and I have a problem. Well, not so much a problem as an obsession. Do you ever think about the money you spend, no matter when or where?

Amazon/Hachette Debacle

The Amazon/Hachette debacle goes on … and it seems everyone has an opinion. Some are on the side of Amazon, and say they are for the indie author. Others are on the side of Hachette and say that their stance protects the rights of legacy published authors.
