Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of research on how one can make a living with their writing.
It’s my aim in 2019 to publish my first non-fiction book, Build Your Best Writing Life, which is the first step in transforming my creative business model from a focus on digital information products to one that’s built on publishing.
