Converting A Tightly Formatted Print Book Into An Acceptable eBook Is Hard Work.

by Anura Guruge

Printed Pages

People just don’t appreciate the work, effort & time involved. Yes, converting a NOVEL without any pictures, tables, lists & FANCY formatting is TRIVIAL & can even be done automatically.

NOT so with my books. SMILE.

I like tightly formatted print books & I REFUSE to ‘sell’ those that buy my eBooks short. I will not give them a SHODDY, unacceptable version.

Though I always charge rock bottom prices for my eBooks (typically just $0.99) I still insist on giving the reader the BEST that I can deliver.

So, yes, I am working on the 518-page “The Conclave” book.

This is the LARGEST book that I will have published as an eBook.

I have been working on this conversion for weeks. SMILE.

It is NOT fun being I.

How Did YOUR Financial Advisor Or Wealth Manager Stack Up Against Me In 2020?

by Anura Guruge

NOPE. Definitely NOT a solicitation. I will NOT manage other people’s money. For a start I am NOT licensed, & never will be. I am TOO OLD. I did manage some funds for a relative, FOR FREE, but stopped doing that when I felt I was getting too old.

I am SURE your professional Financial Adviser or Wealth Manager left me in the dust. Alas, I am too poor to be able to afford one. I have to struggle by on my own. But, I am not greedy. Never have been (other than for chocolate cakes). I am happy with these ‘OK’ returns. I can live with it.

Kind of funny. About 8-years ago Fidelity STOPPED calling me to ask me if I had considered using their services. SMILE.

Yes, these portfolios have a lot of FANG, TSLA, NVDA, Etsy etc.
