“All of my crafts and home-business books remain available on Amazon—along with many terribly outdated earlier editions being offered by various used-book sellers.

Although changing technology, laws, and Web marketing practices have naturally made a few sections of even the last editions of my books outdated, each book still contains a wealth of TIMELESS business management and marketing advice from me and the many business pros and experts who contributed to it.

But given the age of these books, it would be a good idea to check your library before purchasing any of these titles from a used book seller. This BOOKS page on my website describes the content of each print book and also links to books I’ve published recently, including a tax management eBook and a memoir.” ***
