Hello, to all my fellow North Florida writers out there. There are so few opportunities lately for us to get together with our fans/readers in person. Now it’s all about the digital platform. The annual Sunshine State Book Festival sponsored by the Writers Alliance of Gainesville is turning their event into a six months love fest with all of it’s participating published writers. They are inviting ANY published author to sign up on the website by December 15, 2020. You DO NOT have to be a member of WAG.
I’m Official! My First Business License for my new LLC. Now all I have to do is get some letterhead made up and finish applying for all those pesky business things like tax numbers (which I now have), establish business credit through vendors, etc. Even writers who self-publish should treat their writing career as a business. You may not need a Business License to sell your books at local festivals, bookstores, etc. but you will need a Florida Sales Tax license. Those can be gotten FREE and online with the Florida Department of Revenue. Then you just file quarterly returns. DO NOT MISS a quarter even if you don’t make any money at all because they will fine you $50 and suspend your account. Just saying.
I was playing with my new video creation service called Video Robot that I purchased through JVZoo last July. I was hoping to be able to create my own 3D avatars. One of my clients is video shy but wants to advertise her published books in a fun way. Creating your own 3D full-length avatar to use in promotional videos will be really cool.
