Hey, thanks for including my article in this edition of Carnival of Storytelling. =)

I loved the article I shared that section with. The Completely Backwards Way to Amazing Self-Publishing Success sounds like information that could really change the way self publishers think about the writing process. Anyone who’s hoping to make a living self publishing is going to want to take a look. =)
