The Shot Heard Around the Publishing World

This was going to be a simple Mash post, but it ended up I had so much to say about AuthorEarnings.com, I turned it into a dedicated post just on the tornado that is ripping through the publishing world. A few weeks ago, super-sonically successful indie author Hugh Howey (author of Wool, amongst others) launched a

My Life/Working Notes – October 8, 2012

I don't normally like to post another Working Notes so close to the last, but it's been one of those months -- very busy and lots happening to talk about. First up:  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone visiting or living in Canada.  Frankly, I can't believe it's October already.  I just finished with January.... Secondly:  All

Refashioning, Frugality and the New Poor…Indie Reading Is Part of The New Sexy.

You know when the threes start happening?  You won't have heard about her in months, but suddenly in one day three different people will be talking about Jessica Simpson -- all three totally unrelated stories about her?  Or you move through your day and see a picture of a Tessler on an advertisement on line,

Because Indie Legacy Published Books Are Full of Typos

Working Notes – What’s Up Round Up: In The Mail, Too.

As I'm quietly and steadily working my way through Blood Stone, and the weekend started out with an empty email in-tray, and nothing moving on Facebook or anywhere else, I thought this was going to be one of those bulletins where I would have nothing to report, except for progress. But Sunday, which is usually

Working Notes – February 28 – Another Leap Frog

A few weeks ago I was bellyaching about how I had produced books so fast that I had missed out on updating you on two books, between working note installments.  Poor me, life is a bitch, huh? Guess what?  Done it again.  Well, sort of.  :) Last working notes, I got to roll in ecstasy
