Carolyn Howard-Johnson's "How to Do It Frugally Series" is a great service to authors and the writing community. I enjoyed listening to parts 1 and 2, but I think part 3 didn't get posted correctly. I expected to learn Carolyn's definition of subidy and self-publishing...I think part 2 got posted twice, maybe? Red Engine Press is a wonderful resource. Another friend of mine on the net, Pat Avery, is associated with them.

A question I've always had is this. If my link is live on the comment box (through blogger registry or typing in the link), do I need to type my link in again? I'm asking because this is one of the tips, and that's never been quite clear to me how the search engines pick up.

Thanks for allowing us to listen in on your conversation.

Janet, thank you for letting me know that part three was the same as part two. I had posted the same file twice. I've fixed that in the orginal post, but here is the exact link to the third part
