Join a respected group of successful men and women who regularly earn $400... $600... even $800 in their spare time taking pictures in their own backyard… on their family vacations… or anywhere in the world they care to travel. You can easily increase your current earnings without changing jobs or having an advanced degree...adding $2,000 a week or more to your current salary. Here's how some are doing it...


Preparing Five-Star Travel Articles
Relaxing, energizing time away from home is a common goal with any vacation. With this goal in mind, preparing travel features follows closely the planning of a family vacation or weekend getaway. (READ MORE...)

Get Sample Copies Without Breaking the Bank
"Send $4 for a sample copy..." the magazine website notes. I blink and consider how much I have left in my writing budget. One of the reasons I write is to be a financial blessing to my family. Sample copies can add up fast.


Group Signings for Fun and Profit
At first glance it seems like a writer's dream: the book signing. And then there's reality: events no one knows about, books not in stock, a table in the back of the store near the restrooms. One way to avoid such occurrences is by hosting a group signing.

Confessions of an On-line Groupie
Yep, I must confess—I'm a groupie. It all started when I joined a writing group on the Internet. Soon, I found another writing group and then another. I became addicted.

Imagine a job in which you set your own hours, and live where you please: at the beach, in the mountains, in Paris. As a copywriter, you can. I know. I spend my summers "working" in France.
Here's how you can learn the secrets of this little-known, lucrative business:

Shocking News to Authors: The Book Business is a Business First

The Parent Muse
If you've got kids, you know summertime can make it challenging to meet your writing deadlines. Having toddlers camped around the computer can increase your stress, and older kids may interrupt you or need rides at all hours of the day. (READ MORE...)

Effective E-books
Marketing e-books can be a bit tricky. After all, browsers can't pick up a book, skim the pages, and decide it's the right choice. So aside from offering an excerpt from the e-book, what can you, as the author, do to market and promote your e-book?

Treat Your Body Write!
Most writers love to pick up a new book on writing craft from time to time, but if you're like me, you skip the writing "exercise" section at the end of each chapter. Then we skip our physical exercise session for the day. (READ MORE...)

Nuggets for Personal Journaling
Knowing that God had a plan for my life (Jeremiah 29:11) gave me the stability and boldness I needed to finally junk my own plans and pursue His purpose and plan for my life. His plan is the "write" plan for me. (READ MORE...)
