Musings Of Two Creative Minds

Okay gang, the big day is drawing near and you still want to get a few more gifts but don’t know what to buy, or don’t want to go out into the stores which have already pulled down half of their displays and are lining up Spring stuff. What to do, what to do… how about giving someone a good book to read on their Kindle? It’s fast, easy, and you can have it delivered on Christmas Day and know it will arrive on time…


Didn’t know you could do this? Neither did I for the longest time. I only found out a couple of years ago when we released “The Vampyre Blogs – Coming Home”. I found myself rewarding some of our beta-readers with a free copy of the finished product in whatever form they wished (trade paperback, Kindle, PDF).  Most requested a signed trade paperback, but a couple…

How To Grab Your Competitors Long Tail Keywords And Use Them – Written By Derek Haines

Derek Haines not only provides us with a recommendation on using our competitor’s long tail keywords; he also delivers a complete ‘user manual’ on how to manage that. Thanks so much for all your work, Derek!


How to find the best long tail keywords and get your blog post to rank, immediately.

Have you noticed that some bloggers always seem to rank high on Google?

If you are blogging, or content marketing to make money from advertising, affiliate marketing or selling your products or services, you know that keyword search is vital.

Writing a long article and creating content without thinking about SEO keywords first is a hit and miss affair.

How to Add an Instant Preview of your Book to your Site

Thank you very much, Nicolas Rossis, for this great informative blog post – and your manual on how to do this. We really appreciate your work!

In case you’ve missed the exciting news, Amazon has now made possible to embed book previews on sites (only self-hosted ones) and apps.

The book preview widgets are available in custom sizes, and come with a couple of settings, like the option to hide the buy button, open the preview in a new window, and even add an Amazon affiliate ID.
