My Review

How to make money from writing? - A question I have asked very often. 
The question of how to write is discussed amply. I have read articles about writing, watched videos, and have put the quotes regarding this where I see them often.

When I read the title of Tiffany Shand's book, I was immediately fascinated. Making money from writing is any writer's dream. 

In How to Write a Business Plan for Writers, the author talks about the practical aspects of writing. Who would not want to live in a cocoon of writing, not having to worry about getting it published, publicizing it, selling it, and more.
Well, dream on.

While dreaming, make time for this book to figure out how to live in the real world as a writer.

This book lists out the steps for 'treating the job of being an author as an actual business'.

From choosing what to write, comparison between Traditional and Self Publishing, and budgeting time and money, is all discussed in this book

"Writers write books, but in this new world of digital publishing, they have to be a lot more than that. Writers have to be marketers and entrepreneurs... Writing a book is really only the tip of the iceberg."

With the experience of having published independently, the author talks about her realization that just writing the book is not the end. It is actually the beginning.

How to Write a Business Plan for Writers is not only about selling your book, it begins with the process of choosing what to write, how to write

It is a self-help book that focuses on exploring oneself to zero in on what to write, the process of writing, identifying ones' readers, and then making sure they know about your book.

Tiffany Shand gives a step-by-step framework. Now one just needs to sit back, ponder, be alert, and start writing.

You have help (Nancy Diedrich's Whenever a Child is Born)

  Title: Whenever a Child is Born Author: Nancy Diedrich Genre: Children's Picture Book (Ages 3-7) Pages: 30 Publisher: WestBow Press Release date: July 2017 *  *  * My Review What do you expect when you choose a children's book? Pictures that beckon, words that engage, and rhymes that you sing together with your kid. Nancy Diedrich's Whenever a Child is Born has all this and more. As a parent, I like this book not only because of how it would fascinate a child, but also because it would resonate with the parents too. In a subtle, unobvious way, this book allays your fears (and this applies to both the children and the parents) even as you enjoy the words that celebrate the birth of a new child. In 30 pages, you experience the reactions of animals and birds, and nature and heaven welcoming your little one. My kids are kind of grown up now, but as a parent, I still felt good having read it. As I read out a couple of couplets to my kid (always a kid for me, as I keep t
