It’s the end of the month, dudes! I’ve been re-writing two of my ebooks, making them Kindle-friendly, and getting ready to sell them on Amazon (it is sooooo much more work than I expected). If it turns out, I’ll tell you everything I learned!

Whether you like it or not, your intentions are evident, so make sure that what you do is indeed what you want others to see and know.
