* 1. This blog series is using a story to teach writers how to become "indie authors" who publish their work on Amazon and other online retailers and keep all the royalties. Using story takes more words than just a straight blog post written in non-fiction format. But I hope the story is more fun. Which do you prefer for this blog series -- story or non-fiction?

* 2. I typically bold-face the first few words of each paragraph to help guide your eye down the page. How do you like that?

* 3. How interested are you in indie-publishing?

* 4. What is your biggest obstacle to success right now in your writing career?
