Borrowing from Yogi: A dime ain't worth a dollar anymore

On CBS Sunday Morning this week one of the commentators quoted Yogi Berra:  “A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.”  I just had to add that to my dime-store blog, and comment about the piece they did on business card designers.  They showcased one company that designed a fancy two-piece card for a lighting business.  The cost?  8 bucks a pop!  Meanwhile the CBS reporter had a card with CBS in large letters and his contact info underneath.  I prefer that!  I don’t want to (over)pay somebody to be creative; I want to use my own creativity.  And since I earn 35 cents from every book I sell, I better be creative as hell. 

I’m scheduled to appear on New Hampshire Public Radio’s Word of Mouth show on March 15th to talk about my experiences going digital.   http://www.nhpr.org/wordofmouth
I'll keep you posted as things develop. 

To Conquer the Heart of a King will be one of the giveaways again today (Friday) at Barbara Vey’s Anniversary Bash on her Publisher’s Weekly blog.  http://www.BeyondHerBook.com
Her virtual party has been a huge success.

Thanks for stopping by!
