"I'll say one thing - your English is damn good. I pound out lengthy screeds myself - then I edit the hell out of them. The first draft of Dark Resurrection was over 250,000 words long - so I split it and edited it into two books. One is on…"

Are Book Publishers Going the Way of the Railroads?

Over 72% of publishers surveyed on the impact of digitization on book publishing by the Frankfurt Book Fair and the German trade magazine Buchreport said the development of new business models, new multimedia products and effective marketing strategies are the biggest challenges facing publishers as they transition from print to digital.

The publisher’s lateness to the party reminds me of the… Continue

In 1989 Exxon told the cleanup workers the same story, that the crude oil is not toxic. Some of us are living proof of the toxic exposure, and many others have died. Please view the YouTube video, and help get the message to Gulf residents, BP crude oil cleanup workers, and President Obama. Respirators need to be supplied to oil cleanup crews.
Thank you.

Hi there. Im Zaid. I recently published a book on Lulu entitle, "Salaam from South Africa". The problem Im having, which Im sure you might also be experiencing, is effectively promoting this book. My book link is http://www.lulu.com/product/hardcover/salaam-from-south-africa/11257301?productTrackingContext=search_results/search_shelf/center/1 There is also a downloadable version available. I have approached amazon.com regarding how I could get my book up on their website..but im currently still awaiting a response. I was wondering if perhaps you have any ideas as to how to effectively get my book out there? You can respond to this request or you can email me on zaid@hbzbank.co.za Il let you know the full lowdown on how my amazon.com experience went. Hoping to hear from you
