  1. Hello sir, I got you by Google search.
    It is really helpful article about the topic of indierecon.org. I so much interest about your article. I know it is not any simple information. This is very nice post! I will bookmark this blog as I have a best blog about fiverr. If you are looking for a quick online money-making method and you have a skills, or expertise that individuals are willing to pay $5 for then you will definitely want to examine out Fiverr.com. Even if you don’t have a skills or expertise, there are many individuals developing money with fiverr sites doing factors like delivering post cards from exotic locations, or promotion on their cars or even parts of the body. It is actually comical to surf this website just to see some of the unusual factors individuals will do for $5.

  2. Thank you Melissa for this great advice. I love my in person writing groups and I agree that they have helped me in wondrous ways along my career to becoming a published author.

    To be honest, I like the concept of an on-line community, but I’m a little intimidated at the same time. I enjoy my in person critique groups but with an on-line community I fear that I won’t get the same in-depth feedback that I do with my in person groups. Can you offer some tips on how to transfer the mojo of the in person community to an on-line one?

  3. How about policing language, berating authors for their ignorance, but refusing to answer any questions; posting claims that are outright false then telling anyone who disagrees they know nothing and need you years of experience in the industry to understand; ccalling them arrogant for trying to explain themselves; ban them; then ignore it when they go on to sell a half million books?

    Or are some forums doing it wrong? 🙂
