Going from paper to published
I know I will receive some comments about using the word paper instead of a computer, but I still enjoy writing in journals before I type out the finished product. I wanted to write this article because I know several beginning writers who have told me they would like to see their writing published, but they don’t have any idea how to go from paper to published. Here are a few ideas if you also need help in that area.
Why You Should Publish Your eBook As A Physical Book
If you have been on the internet for any amount of time you have probably seen calls to action that ask for your email in exchange for a free download of a niche eBook. So what do you do? You type in your email and moments later an email comes through with a link to your very own digital copy. Will you ever take the time to read it? Maybe. Maybe not but who am I to judge, I’ve done it too.
Trends In Fiction
There are some great trends in fiction publishing. One movement I’m particularly pleased about is the inclusion of diverse representation in characters and perspectives. This can include more stories featuring more characters from marginalized communities, such as racial and ethnic minorities, PoC, the queer community, neurodiverse characters, and characters with disabilities. I notice this a lot in YA fiction, where I see a major change from the stories that were available and accessible when I was a teenager. I particularly like finding genre fiction with queer characters -- I’ve often felt like one could choose between a Queer Protagonist or a Scifi Novel (or a mystery, or whatever your genre is) and it’s been really nice to see more genre novels with queer leads.
An introduction to turning a blog into a book
For many people, writing a book can seem like an impossible task that barely anyone can accomplish. One of the biggest issues is the fact that making a book - when looked at as a whole - is a daunting task that can be filled with tons of issues & a huge risk of writer's block occurring during the process. However, there is one way to get around this: turning a pre-existing blog into a book! By following some easy steps, you can take posts from any kind of blog you might write (or are interested in writing) into a book. This helps to turn the intimidating action of writing a book into a more manageable task by allowing people to unintentionally create the content they need to make a book one blog post at a time!
Publishing On Apple Books From An Apple Device
Earlier, I wrote an article that was about introducing people to the concept of self-publishing their books and an article about the history of the Apple Books platform. Now, I am probably going to tell people about the basic process that you can go through in order to publish any book you personally created without having to go through a traditional publisher. In order to get some very in-depth information on how the process works to become an Apple Books author, you can go to the following URL: https://authors.apple.com/. However, this story should be able to give you a basic enough guide to publishing stuff to Apple Books without too much issue.

They Can Change
Is it possible to “make” another person change? If you have tried, you know it is not an easy thing to do. Some insist it is impossible to change someone else, but some do not agree. Not only is it possible, but it is more straightforward than you may realize. All you need is the secret.
How do you view failures at work and in your life? Do you see them as final or perhaps fatal? Or do you see them as a new beginning or possibly an opportunity? Let’s explore these two directions and see where they can take us.

Writing For A Big Magazine Requires Hard Work & Polished Skill
What every serious writer needs to know — written by a writer who’s been doing it for 35 years -- by Kurt Dillon.
