I liked the OMG piece just for the tone. And the 1st vs. 3rd person one did a nice job listing out the pros and cons.

Thanks for the web ink for my post!

The first person link interested me somewhat because I find it interesting how/why authors choose one POV over another.

Thank you, also, for including my blog post "Voices Carry" on your list of links. I am very flattered by that.

I think self-publishing a non-fiction book makes a lot more sense to me than a novel, though clearly, folks can find financial success with either :)
