Greetings and Salutations!

I'm creating a library of ebooks to help BellaOnline editors with the process of training, to go along with our library of courses. The first ebook is intended for brand new trainees but of course all editors are welcome to use and enjoy it! It's completely free, and it's about how to study efficiently -


Please let me know if you have any suggestions or comments on it!


Amazon now refuses to allow affiliates from California, Colorado, Illinois, North Carolina, Rhode Island, or Connecticut. Time will tell if Amazon is planning to phase out all affiliates in the US, if the states eventually all require sales tax, or if Amazon will at some point "tip" and agree to collect sales tax.

In the meantime, of course, the blacklisted editors need a plan. I know for me my top income maker on BellaOnline besides Amazon is ebooks. What is everyone else's top income draw? I'll compile up the results and then distribute them so we can help out the editors who need alternative ideas.


The BellaOnline gathering in San Diego is fast approaching! If you would like to attend and aren't on the list yet, please let me know pronto! If you can't make it but have computer access that weekend, be sure to Skype in! Skype is free software that lets you text chat or video chat with us. We'll have Skype for all sessions and would love to have you participate!

Something we enjoy doing at Gatherings is making a song playlist recommended by all editors. We can share our favorite music with each other and inspire each other. Here's our current list - please write to suggest your favorite!



Our Mused Literary Magazine is now a proud member of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals and the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses! We are recognized along with some of the finest magazines out there. We should all be quite proud of what we have achieved together!

If you would like to join our Mused team, to help select the items for the upcoming Fall issue, please let me know!

Have a lovely week!

Lisa Shea, owner
