Avoidable Self-Publishing Mistakes

Yes, it’s your first time at bat! You’re self-publishing your first book – but that’s not an excuse for you to commit common mistakes that first-time publishers make in their first book. Committing mistakes with your self-published book project can make it seem that it’s made in an unprofessional way and can be a hindrance to your success. Here are some mistakes which you can easily avoid:

Poor writing

Whenever we write, it is natural for us to miss a punctuation error, make a spelling error or make other typographical mistakes. But to allow these mistakes to appear in our book, will make it appear very unprofessional. Just imagine readers reading the blurb page and finding mistakes from it which can be avoided if you only have gotten somebody to review it for you before printing and distribution.

Another thing that you would have to consider is the flow of organization and thought. If your book is disorganized then it can be difficult from some to read and understand. You would have to make sure that you have a good and detailed outline to help you with the writing. If you are having difficulties writing and think that you need somebody to help you out, then you can get a co-writer or an editor to check your work.

If you are writing a story or novel, remember that continuity is important. There are some writers that would miss that type of error, for example, if they have hazel eyes, then make sure that their eyes stay the same color throughout the story unless it is significant for the story to change it. Avoid giving incorrect information and details. Also avoid putting wrong captions in pictures and graphs, if ever you will use some.

Inadequate book editing, formatting, and layout

If you want your book to be successful, you need to invest in the formatting of the book. Book sales can be affected by a bad cover or bad title. You may need to get a book designer to do your book layout and your cover. Booksellers recognize that jackets and covers are very important in clinching sales. So do not sacrifice in getting a professional to do the cover design.

Aside from the cover, another thing that could affect book sales would be the format of its contents. There are different formats, you can check books from your shelf or you can go to the library to look at some. Things that you need to take note of would be the page distribution among the title pages, copyright pages, dedication pages and the start of the first chapter.

Lack of promotion, marketing and distribution plan

Okay, you have already produced a good book. It is already clean from mistakes, wrong spelling and typographical errors. You would have to come up with a good marketing plan. It is important not to miss this out. Some self-published authors have overlooked this thinking that having a good book on their hands would be good enough. But how will a book sell if readers do not even know it even exist?

You would have to make sure that you have a well-planned advertising, marketing, and launching plan. If you think you cannot pull it off, then do not hesitate to get an experienced person to help you out.

Aside from marketing, some self-published authors also tend to make mistakes in distribution. Make sure that your target audience gets to have a chance to buy your book. Some authors would also overlook online distribution. There are cost-efficient online distribution channels where you can have your book available. The Internet is becoming a convenient place for people to buy stuff that they want and need.

Another thing that self-publishing author should not forget is getting ISBN numbers. Actually, this is an easy thing to do. There are websites that could give you instructions on how to buy ISBNs from RR Bowker, this is the U.S. ISBN agency.

Self-publishing is a balance between everything. To be successful with the book, you do not have to just only write an excellent book but make opportunities for readers to be able to get acquainted and buy it.

How to Succeed with Our Children’s Reading

We, as parents, all struggle in one way or another when it comes to our children. We often find ourselves clueless as to how to get them to do the things that they need to do. Reading is no exception. We struggle to find the line between pushing them too much or not enough. More times than not we thrust the job off on the child’s teacher, after all educating our kids is what they get paid to do. However, it is not solely their responsibility, we have our part in the process.

Here are a few pointers when we find ourselves frustratingly grasping at straws:

Don’t Push them Too Hard

Again, the struggle to find that line between too much and not enough can be daunting. We can fail our children when we fall on either side of this line. And that line is thin. A few things we should avoid are:

Expecting Them to be Like Oher Children- Your oldest son will not learn like the youngest. Your daughter will not learn at the same pace as their brother or sister. Your child will not learn as quickly as the neighbor’s kid. It is unfair to compare your kids to any other kid, especially within their earshot. This is not only harmful to the learning process it can be detrimental to your child’s self-esteem. Don’t do it. Ever.

Moving to a New Reading Level Before They are Ready- Just because your child’s entire class is on Reading Level O and your child is still on Level N is no reason to force them into Level O. Yes, there is a time to do so, but if they are struggling to master Level N, then they will struggle even more with the next level. You will know when they are ready. This is something that you should work on with your child’s teacher. They can often see what they are having trouble with that you may not.

If laziness is an issue and not comprehension, then that needs to be addressed as well. Again, working with your child’s teacher is your best bet to come up with a solution that both of you can use with your child.

Punishing for Missing the Mark- There is no benefit to punishing a child for not reaching certain levels. Even if a child is lazy, making reading a chore is not going to help the issue. Rather than punishing them, reward them for every effort. Even if the goal reached is small. If they read only ten more words than before or get 2 points higher than the last time, then that must be rewarded. Rewarded and praised. There is nothing more motivating than verbally communicating praise for any accomplishment.

Make Sure You Push Them Enough

In contrast to pushing too hard, there are times when we fail to push enough. Today, everyone is afraid of offending anyone. This has now, unfortunately, carried over into how we deal with our kids. We are nervous about hurting their feelings. We are afraid they won’t be our friend. We are scared they may give up altogether. First, sometimes feelings must be hurt to make a change. Second, you are NOT their friend; you are their parent. And third, we cannot fear the unknown. If they do want to give up, you can cross that bridge when you come to it. But for now, their success is worth the risk.

Don’t Give in Too Easy- When your child says, “It’s too hard,” don’t give in and tell them they can stop. First, discover why they find it too hard. What do they not understand? Is it because their favorite show is coming on in twenty minutes or is there a real issue that is keeping them from comprehending what is before them.

Many internal issues can prevent a child from successful reading. Too many to get into this blog. I have addressed them in previous blogs. In summary, your child could have vision difficulties, attention struggles, or learning disabilities that have not been diagnosed yet. This is why it is good to probe to find out why your child finds reading too hard. Again, talk with a teacher to compare notes. And consult a doctor if necessary.

Keep Up with Reading Assignments- Speaking of communication with your child’s teacher, your child’s teacher will be one of the key people when it comes to your child learning to read. Your child has weekly assignments to complete, and they are most often written in a Homework Notebook that is with them. You know, the one item that at Meet the Teacher Night that you were wondering why they need $12? It’s for that notebook.

Every night it is crucial that you check that book and follow up to make sure your child is keeping up with the required assignments. Most often when a child is getting left behind, it is because a parent is not checking that book to make sure their child is completing assignments. Your child is not going to offer up information that they have homework, especially when that show is coming on soon. We need to ask.

Read with Our Children- If you are not reading to, or with, your child, not only are you hurting their progress, you are missing out on an incredible opportunity of quality time with your child. Reading time is a bonding time. The books you read with your child today will be etched in their memories. They will draw back on them when they are older and have kids of their own.

I know your day is busy. Mine is too, and it never seems like there are enough hours in the day. Just because we as parents are busy, doesn’t mean that we can push that off on our kids. They are important and raising them is our primary job. Those fifteen minutes will be rewarding. Not only for their abilities but to your bond with your child. You can worry about bills, deadlines, and the car the other twenty-three hours and forty-five minutes of the day. Your child needs your time and attention.

Never Make Assumptions

It’s Not the Teachers Job- Your child’s teacher is just a part of the reading cycle. They are there to educate; your child is there to do, you are there to reinforce. If there is a breakdown in any one of these tenants, then your child will fall behind. Don’t assume your teacher will do all the work. Do not blame them when a child gets a poor grade or cannot get beyond a reading level if you are not doing your job of supporting them in what they are doing. The worst thing you can do is to contradict your child’s teacher or to tell them something is not important. Always support and reinforce. The two of you working together will ensure your child’s success.

They May Not Understand- It is also important to ask questions. Sometimes a child will be afraid to admit that they do not know something. Ask questions about what they read. Questions like: Who is the main character? What are they doing?  Not only can you ask direct questions, ask open-ended questions that will get them talking about the story. Why do you think the character did that? How would you feel in that situation? Open-ended questions get their minds working and helps them with communication.

They May Not Do What They Say- We all have gone through it. We ask if they read for the night and they tell us they have. You may find this hard to believe, but children are not always truthful, especially when that program starts in five minutes. Don’t assume. I’m not saying always to doubt their truthfulness. I am saying to trust them, but always verify it through seeing their homework notebook. OR you can ask questions about what they read. That will be the telltale sign of whether they did their work or not.

Final Thoughts

Your child can be successful at reading. However, we need to make sure we are doing our job as parents. It is not anyone’s fault when our child struggles. Blame only makes things worse, on everyone. It is best to get down to why there is a struggle. Make sure we are on the same page with our child’s teacher. Ensure we are walking that line between too much and not enough. It is okay to mess up. It is a learning experience for you, as well as your child. Find what works and stick with it. Rewards are a good thing, punishments only hinder. Don’t give in to complaints to quickly and push enough to get them motivated.

Finally, a good dose of prayer is always a good thing. I can honestly say that if you are not daily praying for your children, then you are missing out on a tremendous blessing. Not only for them but for yourself. When lifting someone up in prayer, you are creating a deeper bond with them in your heart. Pray for their abilities. Pray for the struggles they may be having. Most of all pray for your patience and understanding in how to work with your child on their road to reading success.

What a Child Can Learn Through Reading

Through books, a child is taken from the confines of their reading area and into the world of a writer’s imagination. They can walk through a land far away, fly through a cloudy sky, or experience life that is different from their own. I have often written that we read as an escape from our ordinary lives. But for a moment I want to revisit one of the readings fundamental aspects; reading is a teaching tool. And for children’s reading, the teaching is often under the surface or in the background. Without a child realizing it, they are learning.

How to Do Things

Reading can be a great way for our children to learn things. Or at the least, it can give them a springboard to ask questions about learning to do things. Through a character they read about, a child is introduced to the experiences and abilities in which they may have an interest. The day to day lives of a storybook character can cause a young reader to want to live that life. So, they try to act out what they read. Through this process, they learn valuable lessons about what they can do, and what they cannot do; at least yet.

Books like Harold and the Purple Crayon give a child an eager anticipation to draw. Unfortunately, your hallway may need to be wiped down a few times before they learn drawing goes on paper. This eagerness to experiment can lead to bigger things like in All By Myself. The main character of this story is learning about growing up. It’s about his adventure of trying to brush his hair and pour a glass of juice on his own.

Growing up is going to happen, and reading is a great avenue for children to explore and ask questions about life in general. When they see characters doing things that they haven’t learned yet, it gives them a desire to attempt to do those things. And the opportunity for us to guide them in doing them properly.

How to Interact with Others

This attitude of curiosity is not only applicable to trying new things; it can attribute to a child’s behavior. If a character in a story is using good manners, then those behaviors can be picked up by a young reader. You as a parent can also use that character’s actions to bring about a change of behavior in a child, especially when the child admires the character. For instance, Olivia is very respectful in how she communicates with adults. She is also friendly with others and likes to share. These examples can be pointed out to your child to emulate, which will help them as they get older and move into the schooling years and have to deal with other people.

Interaction with others is one of the most significant issues when it comes to making the transition from being at home all day and starting school. Stories about sharing and helping others can help that awkward transition a bit easier. There are many children’s books out there that tackle the first day of school and all the emotions that surround it; the anxiety of meeting new people, fear of not being liked, the sadness of being away from a parent, and the nervousness of having to learn. Reading a good book can prepare a child for human interaction outside of the family circle they have grown accustomed to.

How to View the World

It is all about perspective. Books give a glimpse into a character’s life. We are introduced to someone and given their characteristics. Those details can tell us about how they view the world around them. Books will often take a character through a series of events that will cause a change in the character that will affect their worldview. Often it is from a negative outlook on life to a positive view through a certain event that occurs. An unhappy character finds joy. A mean character finds the ability to be nice.

Bullying is a terrible thing for a child to face. Especially at a young age. But it is inevitable, at some point your child will face a bullying situation. The question is, what side will the child be on? Will they be the one who is being bullied, a witness to someone being pushed around and made fun of, or will they be the instigator? In each instance, believe it or not, reading can teach a child how to deal with these situations. Again, there are a plethora of children’s books that deal with this subject and how to handle it. Allow a child to be prepared by reading some of them.

How to View Themselves

How a child views the world and how they see themselves often go hand in hand. A child with a poor worldview can often feel isolated and afraid. A positive view of the external can leave their head lifted high and more confident about themselves. However, a personal view goes beyond the covers of a book. If a child’s self-esteem is crushed by a parent or someone close to them, then no book in print can overcome such obstacles. But that is another blog entirely. Just understand that in a positive environment, a good book will reinforce positive teaching.

Stories like The Ugly Duckling and The Ugly Five all teach about uniqueness and loving yourself for who you are. Tacky the Penguin and Giraffes Can’t Dance show a child they can be who they are in spite of what others say; that being different has its advantages. Through a book, a child can learn that it’s okay to be smart, silly, or own an imaginary dragon. They can see a variety of characters with what some would see as disadvantages and how they view themselves in a positive light.

We have used the example of The Little Engine that Could before. After other engines find excuses for not wanting to pull a load of toys up a difficult hill, one small engine takes on the challenge. She believed that even though she was small that she could do what she sets her heart out to do. That confidence allows her to succeed at the immense task in front of her. “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can… I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could.” Stories like this, with proper adult guidance, will challenge a child into believing they can do anything if they have the determination to do it.

Final Thoughts

As a child travels through the adventures of a book, lessons are learned. Every book has a premise or an expected outcome after reading it. Teaching a child about making friends, tying one’s shoes, and believing they can be whatever they choose to be, are important life lessons in their progression to becoming an adult. It is a great thing that literature helps reinforce the lessons we are verbally teaching our children. We can use the stories our kids read as examples of good behavior and the consequences of poor decisions. As you open the pages of the story you read to your child tonight, or the book they read to you, ask yourself, “What is the lesson this book is teaching, and how can I use it to help my child grow?”

5 Surprising Benefits of Reading Hard Copy Books

Before you throw away your stacks of real books and switch to online reading only, you should know that there is research concerning the positive things about hard copy books. Today, many individuals are focused on getting rid of the clutter in their homes, leading to only reading books on electronic devices. But there are many reasons to keep paper books in your home.

Benefit 1: Improving Your Writing Skills

By reading real paper books, you and your children can improve your writing skills. When you or your child hold a book rather than an electronic device, you will spend more time looking at the sentence structure and punctuation, helping with writing technical papers or your own fictional stories.

Benefit 2: Reducing Your Stress Levels (And Money Spent)

If you are feeling stressed at home or work, then you can quickly pick up a real book to read a few pages. It is also possible to keep an assortment of books in your vehicle to read while waiting for your children at school or while waiting for your turn at a physician’s office. Real hard copy books are available at low prices at garage sales and flea markets, but you can also borrow the items at a local library. However, you probably can’t afford to have multiple electronic devices for your family, and the price of an average ebook is on the rise, to the point that they are becoming more expensive the hard copies. That’s an expensive electronic device plus the average cost of every ebook you want to read. In that case, the hard copy wins, since you don’t need anything to read it on.

Benefit 3: Preventing Memory Loss

When you are concerned about dementia conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, you should read real books as much as possible. With a hard copy book, you can grab it to read a few pages while television commercials are on. Alternatively, if you have children who can’t seem to maintain focus for extended amounts of time, then providing real paper books for them can improve their cognitive abilities, as they won’t be tempted to jump into an electronic game your e-reader could provide. Additionally, tacklings a hard copy book may help your memory and cognitive abilities absorb the material in a way ebooks will not.

Benefit 4: Devoted Readers Are Less Likely To Get Into Drugs

Readers are less likely to get into drugs because with books they can escape from reality for a bit, they provide distraction and educational opportunities they’ll enjoy. A book can be a particularly subtle way to bring your teenager back from harmful activities. Since they don’t like to be nagged and will respond better if you’re in command of your emotions, you can approach them with other ways to engage them, and therefore, take away time that they could be drinking or smoking. If you have the time, consider starting a small family book club with them, buying them their own hardback copies of books teens are bound to find interesting (for example, we’re fan of this book for its compelling and complicated themes). If you’re a little pressed for money, libraries often have book club sets to borrow as well.

Benefit 5: Learning About a Variety Of Different Things

When looking for books at either the store or the library, you’re exposed to everything there. From staff picks to bestsellers, to more obscure titles. It’s different from shopping online for an ebook, which can lead you around in similar circles, and thus not encourage you to branch out. Go to your local library or bookstore, strike up a conversation with a bookkeeper or librarian, you never know what they can recommend to you. It might just be your next new favorite.

Have a Reading Area In Your Home

Make sure to create a reading area in your home where you and your children have a few or a thousand favorite hard copy books. Have a relaxing chair and pillows in that area so that anyone can enjoy reading a real book, and maintain an atmosphere and space free of electronics, helping you feel unplugged.

Dynamics Behind Self-Publishing

For book writers, having the capacity to compose without confinements and editors cutting what they have composed is an awesome idea. Conveying the desired information is essential for an author, yet it could be exceptionally troublesome if the book publisher and the editors are breathing behind your neck.

A few authors who have no involvement with independently publishing frequently reconsider as a result of the cost. In conventional distributing, the book publisher would bear the expenses and the creator would not need to stress over it. Be that as it may, with independently publishing, the creator would bear the costs. At present, a book can be delivered with as much as $5000.

At the point when independently publishing, you can be the creator who is doing the contracting for editors, cover specialists, book publishers or printers and wholesalers. Then again there are independently publishing organizations or organizations that are committed to create or offer your book or CD. There are three fundamental stages when independently publishing:

  1. Creating, composing, altering and giving outlines if necessary.
  2. Preparing the composition for printing.
  3. Marketing and circulating the book or at the end of the day offering it.

Obviously, the principal procedure that should be finished will be the fruition of the book itself. The reality of the matter is that with independently publishing, you can distribute everything. The reason that most authors can’t get their works distributed is that they didn’t fit the guidelines of the book publisher. In any case, since you don’t need to get any publisher’s endorsement, at that point you can distribute everything. You simply must make certain that what you need to distribute is something better than average.

To be a compelling author, you would need to contact the core of the group of onlookers. That implies in the beginning of the written work process, you would need to recognize your intended interest group and compose for them. Albeit, self-publishers are not that excessively worried about the benefits, it would, in any case, be justified, despite all the trouble on the off chance that you have an okay book staring you in the face.

On the off chance that you would need to go for an independent publishing organization, at that point the vast majority of them would do the whole thing. When you are finished with your book and your original copy, at that point you would need to simply offer it to the organization and they would pick the distributing needs in light of your prerequisites. Everything, obviously, would be for your endorsement.

Be that as it may, the creator needs to submit everything or things all together for the book publisher. When you have presented the particulars, yet later chose to change something, it can cost you extra charges. So you would need to make sure that what you have submitted is the last stuff.

Everything returns to the creator. Once the book is done, the writer should favor the format and outline of what is inside and outside the book. This would enable the writer to have an official conclusion over the book. On the off chance that it gets endorsed then the printing will begin. Once more, the printed duplicates will return to the creator for a thumbs up. When it is done, it would be dispersed.

Independently publishing organizations would likewise incorporate, once in a while in their bundles, other sorts of administrations. Now and again independently publishing organizations would deal with getting copyright for the book, guarantee that it would consent universal norms, limited time materials, and different necessities that would give the independently published and edge.

Independently publishing could sound loaded with assignments or tire, however in the event that you might want to be fruitful then it would require a great deal of persistence and in the meantime diligent work. In any case, it would beyond any doubt be worth something at last.

Billy Boy’s Demented Kickstarter Journey

This is a documentation of my Kickstarter voyage to support Billy Boy Comics #3. Billy Boy is an enthusiasm venture of mine and the character was made while I was in school and first showed up in my independently published comic compilation From Beyonde #1 distributed in 1991.

Requests were unobtrusive, however fans appeared to love the book. Failing to have finished what was to be a 3 – issue constrained arrangement, I at last got around to speculation Kickstarter would be an awesome method to finance the book and offer some incredible prizes including unique workmanship, outlines, commission illustrations, unique marked duplicates of From Beyonde and Billy Boy and also some mystery extend objectives and additional items.

It’s Not Just about the Writing When It Comes to Fiction

At whatever point a fiction essayist chooses to independently publish their work, they can be so energized at the prospect that they blunder on probably the most essential subtle elements. These subtle elements can have a significant effect amongst progress and disappointment. Here’s an agenda of fundamentals which go past the simply written work and add to the hit status of a book.

1. The Cover

Individuals truly DO judge a book by its cover. It must be comparable to anything you would see on a store retire, or next to each other with your book on Amazon. Try not to hold back. Except if you are an expert craftsman and book originator, enlist a professional cover designer. Look at their portfolios to ensure their style is in accordance with your vision of what your cover should resemble. Talk about your thoughts, and ensure your agreement takes into account updates.

2. The Proof-Reading

The book ought to be as blunder free as could be expected under the circumstances. Ensure you have no less than one individual other than yourself read over a printed duplicate of the book, not only a computerized one. Word’s spelling and sentence structure checker are valuable, yet not great.

3. The Editing

It can be hard to judge your own novel, particularly on the off chance that you have been slaving ceaselessly finished it for quite a long time. An expert manager, or a companion who cherishes to peruse, can ensure you have a great start and completion. They can likewise search for internal rationale in the novel, for example, characters, circumstances and settings. You would be flabbergasted at what number of characters eyes begin dark colored and wind up green before the finish of the book!

4. The Marketing Copy of the Book

There are two types of showcasing duplicate that will show up on or in the book:

* The “Ad spot”

* The secret duplicate

The “ad spot” goes on the back of the book and now and then on the main page inside the book too. It resembles a rundown of the story and should allure individuals to peruse it.

The secret duplicate can be on the back also, and additionally on the primary page inside the book. It ought to be a sensational extract from the novel that draws the potential peruser into the story.

5. The Marketing Copy for the Book

A variety of promoting duplicate can encompass the book. For instance, the ad spot and secret will seem online as a rule. You may even incorporate them in a limited time bundle to a book analyst. Once the audits begin to come in, on the off chance that they are great, you can cite from them to help advertise your book.

In the event that you know any unmistakable writers or operators who may be sufficiently caring to investigate and compose a remark or two, or even a foreword, this would likewise be staggeringly valuable for offering more books.

6. A Great Author Biography, Website/Blog, and Social Media Presence

Time Management Tips for Writers

Some authors write a lot faster than others. Lucky them. But many authors get writer’s block and stress over their work. Still, others struggle to meet their deadlines.

Time management can often help solve these issues. Here are some tips to make the most of each writing day.

1. Set a Schedule

Try to write at the same time every day, a couple of times a day, if you are juggling it with a day job and other activities. Keeping to a regular schedule will help focus yourself and your writing.

2. Use a Timer

Set an egg timer or an online timer for 25 minutes. Don’t do anything but write. Take a 5-minute break, then give yourself another 25 minutes. Continue in this manner for each writing session. After doing this a number of times you might want to give yourself more time or less depending on how productive.

3. Set a Goal for Each Session

Decide what you want to work on and focus on that – exclusively. You might be writing additional words for your novel, for example, or editing what you wrote recently. But make sure you focus on your goal task and don’t let your mind wander.

4. Have Your Own Writing Area

Choosing a space you can call your own is important. Even if it is just one corner of your kitchen where you have your laptop, pens, and paper, have a little office space for yourself that no one will tamper with.

5. Turn Off Distractions

Turn off the phone, stop your email from pinging and make sure your workspace is relatively quiet. Avoid looking out of the window or tidying your desk when you are supposed to be writing. You can’t write your best work if you’re constantly being interrupted!

6. Use To-Do Lists

To-do lists keep you on track and remove the stress of trying to remember everything that needs to be done. I use them all the time in my daily life, not just for writing. There is also immense satisfaction in tackling the task and then crossing it off your list. Never underestimate the feeling of “accomplishment”.

7. Get Up Early to Write, or Write Late at Night

Whether you’re a morning person or an early bird you can often get something done before the other people in your home start stirring. When the family is all still in bed can be the best time to get writing done. It can mean some sacrifices, but they can be worth it if you are creating a saleable piece of work.

8. Don’t Wait to Be in the Mood to Write

Writing is not so much about talent as work and consistency. Write every day even when you don’t feel like it. Treat it as part of your daily routine, like showering and brushing your teeth. Doing this will help your writing become second nature and may limit the number of times you face writer’s block.

9. Broaden Your Definition of Writing

There’s always something to do when you are a writer, such as editing, research and so on. Use each scheduled session to the fullest extent even if you never write an original word. Again, this is about consistency. Keeping your schedule and working all of your writing tasks will keep you more focused.

10. Tackle the Tough Stuff First

This advice is going to run contrary to the normal way people do things but it works so keep reading. If you struggle with a particular task, do it first to get it out of the way so you won’t dread doing it while you are working on your other writing-related tasks. Otherwise you might find that your trepadation at the task interferes with your other tasks.

11. Don’t Believe in the Myth of Multitasking

There is really no such thing as multitasking. It is simply the brain switching back and forth rapidly between two tasks. The result? More stress for you, and each chore taking more than twice as long compared with working on each thing one at a time.

12. Outsource the Non-Essentials

If you hate doing a task, don’t do it well, and/or it does not have a direct impact on your writing or financial success, then outsource it and hire a freelancer to deal with it. Head over to, get a lawn service, and so on.

Books That Can Help Your Child Overcome Fear of the Doctor

As a parent, there are certain stages we go through with our children. One stage that seems to hit every kid at one point or another is fear of the doctor. This might be because of numerous reasons, such as fear of pain that might be the result of exams or shots. Luckily there are books that will boost your child’s confidence about the doctor’s office and bring some much-needed relief to your peace of mind.

The Berenstain Bears Go To The Doctor

There are many reasons kids might be scared of going to the doctor; sometimes they get shots with big needles and the others times, they’re subject to examinations that happen within their personal space. If you want to combat this feeling, maybe gift your child “The Berenstain Bears Go To The Doctor” by Stan and Jan Berenstain. It’s a book about the regular check-ups. It should help your kid establish the expectation that they will be going to the doctor regularly and that this will be a good thing for their overall health.

Doctor Maisy

Sometimes, kids go to the doctor when they are feeling bad, and the natural fear and anxiety that they regularly have is heightened. But, to get better, it must be communicated that a doctor’s visit will be necessary. To try and cement this concept to them, try giving your child a book like “Doctor Maisy” by Maisy Books, to help your child recognize the benefits of going to the doctor. Here we show Maise pretend to be a doctor to better the condition of one of her stuffed animals. It’s a positive depiction of doctors that will certainly boost the confidence of children facing a doctor’s visit when they aren’t feeling so well.

How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?

Perhaps the most relevant book of the lot is “How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?” by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague. This book is about a frightened dinosaur who finally overcomes his fears and visits the doctor to get the treatment he needs. This dinosaur is stubborn and reluctant, so it will be an excellent opportunity for children to recognize their behavior in him, and hopefully, when they see his small journey, they will be a bit more reasonable about the whole ordeal.


It is natural for kids to be scared of the dreaded doctor visits. Once they have gone to the visit, they will wonder why they were afraid in the first place. By reading these books, children will grow out of their fear of the doctor. Do keep in mind that at times, children have a legitimate concern of the doctor that could be born from genuine malpractice or genuine bad experiences that will need to be addressed. According to medical malpractice lawyers, if you suspect that a doctor performs negligent actions or inactions in regards to your child, you should probably investigate the situation for both your child’s health, and other childrens’ as well.

The Downsides of Self-Publishing

We have heard how great self-publishing is, it can give you control of your book (your own destiny if you will) and at the same time increase your profits (or increase your losses). But is it really so great? Are there any downsides or disadvantages to going to self-publishing and going it alone as an author? The answer is yes, everything has its pros and cons and you need to know the cons before you proceed so you can make the right decision for you.

Everything is in Your Hands

If you have decided to opt for self-publishing your book, then you should be ready to multitask big time. Compared with traditional book publishers, they have editors, printers, layout artists, cover artists who are available and ready to work for them anytime. But as a self-publishing author you would have to handle all of these tasks yourself and if you cannot do it all, you have the option to get or hire somebody who can. These are services that can cost you big time. But even if you outsourced the work, you will still need to oversee it and make sure that it meets your standards.

Time could be a major problem for some self-published authors. There are some writers who have part-time day jobs and would need to fit a self-publishing schedule to their time. Even marketing and promotion fall into your hands.


In traditional publishing, the writer would get as much as 5 to 10 % of the sales. But in self-publishing, you can increase the profit to as much as 50 %. But the downside is that you would have to subsidize everything beforehand. It is a risk. You can spend about $5,000 for self-publishing a single book, but you cannot guarantee that it everything will be returned to you when you start selling your books – if they sell at all.

Most of the times, you would need to get a distributor since book sellers are not that willing to buy books directly from the author. The author would have to give discounts to the distributor and any stores willing to sell the book, this would be less than your expected 50 % profit. Another problem would be when the book does not sell that much. Aside from less profit, some bookstores would return the book and ask for a refund and in the case of a self published author it would be YOU providing the refunds. Some self-publishers would draft a contract that would not allow returns and refund, but most booksellers would require a lower price or in some cases – no payment at all (usually called “consignment”).

Competition can be tough. Readers would not easily buy your book since their is no large publisher backing you and may not be well known. You will need to give them a reason to buy your book over books with the same topic. Marketing and publicity could be a key. And you would have to spend money on that, too.

The Reputation

Another problem that self-publishers encounter is the reputation and credibility of being self-published. There are some readers who do not regard self-published books highly. Sad to say, some people are extremely biased against self-published authors, thinking that just because major publishing houses have refused the author, it means the book is not good enough or poor in quality.

The Writer

They say that a book is like a writer’s own child. It would be difficult to criticize and disparage your own kid, right? Because authors would have to do everything, editing included, it can be difficult to be objective all the time. They can protect parts that are not really important or aesthetically weak. They can have difficulties letting go of some parts which are totally insignificant. That is why we have editors. But if an author would be his own editor, then there can be biases.

Self-publishing is a risk, you can spend a lot of money but the returns could be low. But come to think of it, everything is a risk. Risk is part of success.

The Best Bedtime Stories to Help Your Kids Wind Down

It’s bedtime at your house and the kids are wiggly. According to Mattress Advisor’s sleep guide for parents, having a bedtime routine is key to helping kids wind down. One of the most popular ways to make bedtime more fun is to read a book or two with your child. And according to The Children’s Bureau, children whose parents read to them are more likely to develop a lifelong love of reading. Which story will you choose to help them wind down for the night? Here are a few tried-and-true favorites to get you started.

Picture Books for the Youngest Readers

It’s important to build reading habits before your children can even read by themselves. Reading to them at bedtime can help strengthen the bond you have with your children, and can help them wind down and create a bedtime ritual.

Goodnight Moon is one of the most well-known bedtime stories, and for good reason. Margaret Wise Brown’s rhyming lines help children say goodnight to everything imaginable (stars, air, noises everywhere), and Clement Hurd’s illustrations feature bold colors and a hidden mouse in every picture of the Great Green Room. By the end, the little rabbit who wishes the moon goodnight is sound asleep — and your kids just might be too.

1929’s Newbery Honor book Millions of Cats is another classic. Wanda Gág’s rustic illustrations and rhythmic writing tell the story of an elderly couple who want a cat, but end up with far more than they bargained for. Your children will be able to repeat the recurring phrase as you read together: “Hundreds of cats, thousands of cats, millions and billions and trillions of cats!” And who knows, maybe counting cats will be just as effective as counting sheep!

Reading to 5- to 7-year-olds

With children just reaching school age, you are working to create a love of literature in them that will last a lifetime. These stories can help children understand the world around them, especially relationships between people.

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch tells the story of a boy whose mother constantly reminds him of how she will love him forever, no matter how old he gets or how rebellious he becomes. The book has a reassuring tone and gentle, detailed illustrations by Sheila McGraw. While you read about the child in the story, you can remind your own kids that “as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.”

Bedtime for Frances follows adorable little badger Frances on her journey to bed. Frances is a master of stalling. She asks for an extra glass of milk, she asks for special stuffed animals to sleep with, and she even swears she sees a monster in the corner of her room. Russell Hoban’s repetitive writing style makes Frances’ bedtime ordeal funny and relatable for both kids and parents, and Garth Williams’ illustrations are worth looking at again and again.

Reading to Older Kids

Reading aloud to children at this age is just as important as it was before they could read. You are able to read books to them that are more advanced than what they can read on their own, keeping them learning with each new story.

Meghan Markle Has A New Royal Job & It Used To Be Done By The Queen Herself

While Meghan Markle being a total boss lady isn’t particularly new information, it’s pretty exciting to learn about her new responsibilities now that she’s a fully immersed member of the royal family. And now, according to a new report, Meghan Markle has a new royal job and it’s something that used to be done by the queen herself, because there’s just no denying that Markle Sparkle, is there? Just over a month after Markle married Prince Harry and officially became the Duchess of Sussex, the new royal is clearly diving right into her duties.

In addition to attending events, and even going on a solo outing with Queen Elizabeth II recently, Markle has also reportedly just been given a new role in the royal family. According to Express, both Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, will formally welcome participants of the "Queen’s Young Leaders programme to Buckingham Palace" during the summer, which is something the queen herself has done in years past.

The program reportedly started four years ago, according to Express, and the queen has thoroughly enjoyed welcoming the youngsters to the palace over the summer. But, as the responsibility was handed over to her grandson in April, according to the Daily Mail, both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be working together on the Queen’s Young Leaders program.

So, what exactly is the program that Prince Harry and Markle will be working on? Well, according to the official Queen’s Young Leaders website, it all started in 2014 when "a search was launched to find exceptional young people to receive the first ever Queen’s Young Leaders Awards." Basically, the program works to find young people who are doing great work all over the British Commonwealth. As noted on the program’s website:

Hundreds of applications flooded in from incredible young people all dedicated to making lasting change in their community and beyond. The Programme is now in its fourth and final year and has formed a unique community of 240 influential change-makers, who represent 53 Commonwealth countries.

Yeah, it’s kind of a big deal. And the fact that the queen has entrusted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to do so means that the bond between Her Majesty and Markle is already strong as can be.

In case you missed it, Markle and the queen recently went on a trip together, and it was one of the duchess’ first official royal engagements. Additionally, it wasn’t a simple trip to a charity engagement, either. No. Markle and the queen actually took the Royal Train on an overnight trip to Cheshire, England, where they oversaw the opening of a new bridge and even watched some children’s performances, according to Metro.

Markle and the queen stepped out together on June 14 and seemingly had a great time together. According to CNN, the pair opened a brand "new toll bridge over the River Mersey." Markle and Queen Elizabeth left on Wednesday, June 13, from London, taking the Royal Train and spending the night on the luxury carriage. It was a pretty far cry from the queen’s first solo outing with her other grandson’s wife, Kate Middleton. According to Express, Middleton’s first outing alone with the queen didn’t take place for almost a year after she married Prince William. Middleton went with the monarch as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in March 2012, Express reported.

Of course, comparing Middleton and Markle’s royal experience isn’t exactly fair to them, since they’re both completely different individuals and their husbands are also in completely different positions. Prince William is third in line to the throne, and will likely be the King one day. Prince Harry, on the other hand, is sixth in line and doesn’t have nearly as many responsibilities as his older brother.

But when it comes Markle, it’s clear that the Duchess of Sussex and Queen Elizabeth’s relationship is off to a great start.
