Internet Retirement: Your Days Are Numbered

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 28, 2014 in Internet |

Retirement is something many people simply do not look forward to: what will they do with all their free time? So much leisure all of a sudden, and no plans whatsoever. Either that, or they look forward to it more than anything else, have already made copious plans, and can’t wait to get out and […]

Is There A Point To Negative Reviews?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 4, 2014 in Publishing |

A major interest for all writers, quite aside from having their work accepted by a publisher and then selling, is the reaction it receives from the marketplace, from ordinary readers.

Publishing: The Worst Review Advice

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 6, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

You wouldn’t believe how much stress there is involved in just reviewing a book. Every single reviewer knows how much work has been put into the volume they have in their hands; how much an author has invested; how proud they are of their creation. The reviewer, however, also has their work to do, and […]

Books: Finally Out There

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 14, 2014 in Publishing |

After a good deal of hard work – which I am definitely getting used to! – our first three titles are now available on Amazon for anyone who wishes to buy through their system instead of through our shop or Etsy. That is, it is available on their US site but, for some reason, there […]

Selling On The Internet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 8, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

I am amazed at how difficult it is to set up an account and sell books on the Internet. It’s not so much the regulations involved, more how difficult certain sites make it just to register, as if they really don’t want you to use their site, don’t want to earn their (often exceptionally high) […]

Amazon And April Fool’s Day

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 1, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

I seem to be having a problem with Amazon, not that I deal with them yet, but generally they are being a pain in the ass and, therefore, I have nominated them as April Fools for this year. A short while ago I mentioned that Amazon have listed my brand new publications as being Out […]

How To Kill A New Business

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 30, 2014 in Publishing |

Ever wondered how much work goes in to building up a business? I mean, from the very first idea right through the first two or three years of its existence, not just the actual paperwork and launch. Believe me, I can tell you from experience that it is a lot and, even after six months […]

Amid all the highly publicized news from Amazon that they are thinking about using drones to deliver, and that they are considering using the vast amount of data they have gathered on customers to advance order, one small but interesting item of news seems to have slipped through the net.

If you have ever felt a little uncomfortable about the data companies or the government hold on your private life, your movements, your telephone conversations or purchasing habits, cast a few nervous thoughts in the direction of Amazon’s new marketing idea.

Amazon Pricing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 20, 2013 in Internet |

I admit it, I use Amazon. Well, that should be plainly obvious from the fact that there is a link to my Wishlist right there on the right hand side of this post, but still, I have no problem admitting it outright for all to see and marvel over. And there are some very valid […]
