THE FINAL WORD ON THE RHYMING OF THE WORD "ORANGE."

There's lots of clutter online about the rhyming of the word orange. But I have done it;  I have rhymed the word orange in a short story and uploaded it on Kindle.  See the Kindle store for the title The Rhyming of Orange.  The orange rhyme word is not rare or part of a special terminology but is a word you might use every day.  It is a short story and the price on Kindle is ultimately reasonable.  Please read it and comment.  I believe my solution ends the…

THE WORD ON SELF-PUBLISHING / PRINT ON DEMAND - ADDED 11-29-2011

BMN - Of course, I forgot to add the cost of an agent, if you go that way - and this is a big expense.  And, too - you pay tax on your earnings.  Finally, I doubt that you'll get 40% of what's sold.  That's obsolete, also.  Maybe you'll get 12% - 15%.  The book publishing industry is set up as any capitalist enterprise, to maximize profits and part of doing so is to cut the cost of their material, and that's YOU,…

The Word on Self-Publishing / Print on Demand

I thought it wasn't long ago that John K. complained that there was not enough material on BMN that stimulated discussion. With a cursory search, though, I have not found anything relevant. Nevertheless, I will upload an item below, - and if, in reply, I get only offers to buy insurance, blogs telling me how much emotional support someone derives from his/her religion, and photos of his/her children and grandchildren - I might withdraw from BMN.

Winning Writers (So-Called) Follow-Up

I will compare Winning Writers boorish behavior to Glimmer Train.  At Glimmer Train, I uploaded the wrong version of a story in their current short short story contest, and later uploaded the correct version.  When I emailed Glimmer Train to make certain that they had the correct version, they refunded the fee for submitting the wrong version - Even though I did not request a refund but only wanted to make certain they had the correct version of my story.  With…

WINNING WRITERS SO-CALLED

I'm writing to warn all of you about Winning Writers.  Publishers of poetry are divided into two groups, snob and money-making.  Winning Writers is in the latter category.  It should be called "Winning Profits."  The editor, Adam Cohen, would not respond to a request about a judgement about a poem.  I didn't say he denied a request.  He simply didn't reply.  The reason is that there's no money in replying to such requests.  Winning Writers, so-called, even calls those who use their services…

COPYRIGHT FOR NEWSPAPERS

Hi! I've had some success having Op-Eds and letters published by the Providence Journal, unpaid as of this time. I know that the newspaper has the right to alter my material, and to republish it in other venues. I want to know what rights I retain to my Op-Eds and letters. Can I republish in other journalistic venues? Can I publish in a book? I believe I can upload my material on my own site. If someone would inform me about newspaper copyright, and give me a few links, I would appreciate it.… Continue

READY, GO! VIETNAM ERA WRITINGS

I have recently had the above book published by Pudding House Publications, a literary press. I describe the contents of my book as: three episodes of memoir, three brief poems, and a fable of the war that explicates it. My little book both provides an opening to the war and a close to it. I offer a preface and two postscripts, one before the events of 9/11, and one afterwards. Visit my website for it: www.trcatanzarite.com. Thanks!

ONLINE COPYRIGHT

I'm in the midst of consulting with an attorney to find out how to protect my work that I post online, and for blogs. (Godaddy used to have a copyright service for blogs on its site, but ended it.) There is a great deal of information about copyright on the Internet, but I'm uncertain of its reliability. I will see a specialist in the field of online copyright. The reason is that I'm just getting to upload a Web site, and want to be sure of what I'm doing. I would be delighted with information… Continue

THE TWILIGHT OF AMERICAN EMOTIONAL LIFE?

I would like someone at BMN to explain to me the psychological, emotional and literary significance of "Twilight," described as a young adult vampire novel. I think it's perverted, and demonstrates the degeneracy of American youth. Ted

FRIENDS AND ALL

There's always so much to do, and I've neglected BMN. I would invite all of you to look over and join twitter.com. Comments are limited to a total of 140 characters and spaces. The restriction of format necessitates precise and disciplined thinking. It also makes comments easy to read. It's like eating pistachios: you can't eat or read just one, but have to keep going. On twitter my user name is: Tedsays. Thanks and see you there, and here, too. Ted

I'VE BEEN AWAY FOR TOO LONG

Hi! - I've been away for quite a few months both because of personal issues and because my old PC died, and I had to buy a new laptop and get it running. I've uploaded the cover of a chapbook published in Feb.2008 by Pudding House Publications. Thanks, if you're interested. Ted

RE: ON A PEDESTAL: A TRIBUTE TO WOMEN OF COLOR

FOR NADIA BROWN & TOMMY L. THOMAS: In 1995 there was published a book of photographs with supporting text (in German, French and English) by Uwe Ommer entitled: BLACK LADIES. This is an oversize book at 9 X 12 with phogographs in color. The ISBN is: 3822886742. The book also is a tribute to women of color, or of African women. You should examine this book, and buy a copy---as I did. It's terrific. Ted

A START FOR ME

I'd like to share some news with my friends and members of BMN. Jen Bosveld, the editor of Pudding House Publications, has accepted one of my poems chapbooks for publication. The notice of my book is as follows. TITLE: FLICKA (ROUTINGS ON THE GREEN GRASS). CONCEIT: Flicka, the name of a filly (featured in a popular novel published in the middle of the 20th century), is personified in bouts of erotic depression that carry the poet through his depressive episodes to a resolution of them in mind… Continue

JOHN K'S BOOK PUBLISHING OPTIONS / PART 11

John K. / And Others: John, when you write your book on publishing options, you might want to add something I've discovered, though it may all ready be known. Recently, a book was published about Newport, RI---Stensrud, Rockwell. Newport: A Lively Experiment, 1639-1969. The name of the publisher was given as the Redwood Library and Athenaeum in Newport. I live in RI and know that the Redwood Library is not normally a publisher. It is a library for researchers and the general public… Continue
