• De gustibus...

    Hello everyone! I was waiting for this stop with anxiety, excitement and butterflies in my stomach and, finally, it has arrived and I can get rid of this sore tooth. What am I talking about? I’m talking about the Review Party! I had written a completely different article that has been object of much debate (you can see what happened on the Facebook page of the book) and it was not my intention in the slightest! I do not want my book to be tied to arguments. So I made the decision to cancel what I had written.

  • The pains of self-publishing...

    Buongiorno a tutti. Anche se per ora nessuno legge i miei articoli, ho pensato che devo pur iniziare da qualche parte e quindi ci riprovo anche oggi. Mi sono guardata un centinaio di tutorial su youtube su come auto-pubblicarsi, fare marketing, creare un blog, acquistare i codici ISBN e mille altre notizie che al momento mi stanno confondendo e mi pare di saperne meno di prima. Ho consumato l’inchiostro di minimo un paio di penne per prendermi appunti e mi sento comunque persa. Pensavo che scrivere il libro sarebbe stata la parte più difficile e invece avevo torto marcio. Ora viene il bello…   ARTICOLO NEL MIO BLOG: Come organizzare…
