I' ve recently made the decision to adopt everything I've learnt about the publisher business in the last five years and begin with a new name. Much of my policy is to publish short works more often, so the reader has a steady flow of new stuff to hopefully attract them and make enthusiastic supporters for them.

If I am willing to run, I make sure others know, which has the added advantage that I can timestamp my launch. Stage 6: Continue with your run. It' much simpler said than done, but once you sign up for a quick run, you have to continue.
