By Yonatan Gordon

While I had in mind about a week ago to write an article in honor of 24 Tevet–this year being the 200th anniversary since the passing of the Alter Rebbe, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi–the precise nature of this article only became clear on 24 Tevet itself.

I haven’t conducted surveys on the subject, but, in this two part series, I’ll share what my experience, logic, and research tells me.

Brian W. Foster

My research indicates that the vast majority of self published authors sell few books.  Some, however, do become successful, and I think that the major difference between the two groups is that the ones who do well treat it as a business.

There’s a few of those i would like to try: scheduling for successive four weeks feels like an amazing plan. I’ve come back to a stage wherever i am dropping from 3 (scheduled) blog posts per week to 2, therefore this could be a good time to implement a replacement programming pattern too.
