For example, when her Sweet T and the Turtle Team was named the best environment category book for children by the Literary Classics Book Awards, Michaels documented her week at the organization’s conference and awards festivities through photos. The marketing-savvy writer turned the images into social media shares, a blog post, and even a video.
Winning is good, but it’s not enough

We started this discussion in my post, Can You Make (And Even Sell) Your Own Photos?
Followers of Joel’s modern-publishing ecosystem are generally authors and writers developing and selling their books and articles. But what about selling photos? How does that happen if you decide to create and sell your photos?
The short answer is: Your photos get found and licensed because of words correctly embedded in them.
However, what is the process? Moreover, where does the photo need to be on the Internet to get “discovered” by a willing buyer?
Several of you wrote me, “Tell us how this all works.”
Here is a practical example that illustrates the reality.
