Taking in the Brickbats

When you've written your book and published it it is a labor of love only to you. And maybe to your close friends and family. Do all your readers care for all the effort you've put into it? Probably not. Some readers may not even like your book. But that's expected and you should deal with it just the way you'd deal with the rave reviews you may end up raking in. 1)  Re-post the bad reviews: Pick whatever online/ social media site you're comfortable with, or the one where you're active, and … [Read more...]

Believe, Write, Publish A Writer’s Journey, by Howard Shapiro

In August, 2012 the culmination of three years of work, and a thousand different twists and turns, finally took place.  That is when my debut Graphic Novel, The Stereotypical Freaks was published in paper format. I've gone through two publishers, an agent, four illustrators and hundreds of re-writes to get the book out into the marketplace. It's a happy ending to a story that seemed like it would never end, because in November 2012, I even had the eBook format out on all the major online retail … [Read more...]

Self-publishing gives you the power to be in control, to oversee the entire process right from the creative and technical aspects of book making to the distribution and selling. Further, since self-published authors pay the full cost of creating their books, they bear the sole rights for their books and also have the power to … [Read more...]

Promoting Your eBook: Leaving Handprints In The Folds Of The Internet

So, you finally took that step forward and completed your manuscript. Days and nights of sitting in solitary resoluteness, being cut off from the whirlwind of the outside world, and hammering away at the keyboard until the words started to grow and tumble off those piling Word Doc pages, have finally led you to be in possession of a fresh, new, inventive novel, novella, collection of letters or anecdotes or essays, childrens lit, cookery, self-help, or what-have-you manuscript. You must be … [Read more...]

The Finesse Of The Final Cut by Helga Schier

For decades writers (and readers) bemoaned the fact that so many good books remained unpublished. It seemed that the industry's gatekeepers agents and editors and publishers didn't even look at your work unless you had amazing pedigree or a publication list a mile long. A first-time writer had a better chance of winning the lottery than getting published. The self-publishing revolution changed things. Publishing has never been more competitive than today, yet there have never been more … [Read more...]

Rear-view, Front-view

With the New Year, the publishing world is ushering in a lot of challenges and exciting opportunities, albeit in unsymmetrical measures. Of course the overall picture would give us a fair idea of what's more and what's less, but the counterpoise is altered to great lengths with new trends and new statistics that seem to manifest with accustomed celerity. That's not to say the publishing world itself is a unified entity - and the divisive factors are not just limited to the fact that digitization … [Read more...]
