What Writers Need to Know About Publishing

I have a book review up on the Small Press Blog today of "What Writers Need to Know About Publishing" by Jerry D. Simmons. I found it a good and helpful read and I highly recommend it. I make the point that this is the book you should read before you write your book.

Self Pub News Re-born

Hi all,

I am resurrecting Self Pub News in a new, shiny way that will hopefully work better. The only type of announcements available now will be books (as opposed to events and other things).

You need to send me three things:

  • Text of no more than 75 words

Both traditionally and independently published?

I have been traditionally published (thrice over) by a mid-size publisher and have independently published one book (with two more before year's end).

For those of you that have done both, I am curious as to your reasoning for switching. I could most definitely get another book traditionally published. I decided I wanted more control and more money.

Self Pub News

I am looking for content for my new Self Pub News. I am getting plenty of people who want to make book announcements (although feel free to send them along = 100 words + cover graphic + link to Amazon), but I am also looking for:

  • Announcements of conferences
  • Announcements of lectures
  • Announcements of bookstore signings
  • Announcements of awards
  • Announcements of ...

You get the point. I… Continue

Thanks for the invitation Thomas. I saw a mention of your blog and newsletter in John kremer's newsletter. It's a great idea. I'll be sure to send more traffic your way.

My business is consulting to authors who either want help with self-publishign or help getting published by mainstream publishers. That includes editing, teaching, and strategizing.

Always been a fan of alternative education. My children were products of the 60s and 70s, went to ungraded schools. It was a pretty exciting time. They weren't so thrilled with it but then, they never experienced the alternatives, at least not at elementary levels. And they turned out pretty darn good! (-:
Thank you for inviting me. You have some neat projects going there!
