My Sunday morning ritual is simple. Rise early—a few hours before the kids roll out of bed—make a bowl of Steel-cut Scottish Oatmeal, add blueberries and raspberries to the mix and pour myself a large mug of tea. Then I surf the Internet, catching up on different blogs I follow and seeing what’s new and exciting out there.
This morning, I came across a post that lists several other interesting blog posts for writers. The topics include:
Is the Author Solutions Acquisition a Good Thing for Authors?
This has to do with Penguin buying Author Solutions, a company with a horrible reputation for exploiting writers who want to self-publish. iUniverse and Trafford are two ‘branches’ of Author Solutions.
Is “Platform” Saturated?
We hear a lot about building platforms these days. I’m going back to read this after I post here.
Show Me the Money…(in 10 steps or less)
Analysing the out-flow and in-flow of money.
The Easy Way to Get Your US Tax Back
Everyone who got caught with their pants down (or their kilt up) and had to handover 30% of their royalties to the IRS might want to take a look at that one.
How Facebook Advertising Works for Authors
I want to learn more about this, too. I’ve been seeing more book ads lately, and I wondered what was involved. A friend of mine used an ad for her soon-to-be-released book, and received about 100 likes to her page because of it. But does this mean she’ll actually make money from the ads? Only time will tell.
You’ll find the links to these posts on Joel Friedlander’s blog, The Book Designer – practical advice to help build better books.
Happy Blogging, and Happy Sunday.
