    How to use Twitter effectively Twitter 101 One of the first concepts you’ll need to understand before using Twitter are the two symbols that primarily make up the social media platform. The first symbol is the Hash tag sign (#) which is a way to group your tweets with a specific topic.  Different Hash tags like #writerproblems will let people know that your tweet is related to the specific topic different writer’s problems.  The important thing to remember is that you can’t put a space between words within a Hash tag because the platform will interpret them differently.  If you…

  • Writing Horror And Making A Living With Your Writing With Michaelbrent Collings

    The Creative Penn
    Joanna Penn
    24 May 2015 | 11:30 pm
    Some of the loveliest authors I know write horror and Michaelbrent Collings is one of them! Today we discuss the boundaries of the horror genre, writing to heal, screenwriting and multiple streams of income. Super fun In the introduction, I talk about the change to the podcast – it will now go out every Monday so you can expect a regular show! After 6 years of sporadic audio, hopefully this will be a welcome change I also talk about the empowerment of the author and the pros and cons of indie, I give an update on my own books and audiobooks and also give a shout out to those who tweeted…
  • Discovery Challenges Mount in a Reader-Driven World

    Digital Book World
    DBW
    27 May 2015 | 10:51 am
    Editors and imprints are steadily losing the ability to dictate how their content is curated and discovered, says Canelo co-founder Michael Bhaskar, speaking at the International Digital Publishing Forum’s Digital Book 2015 conference at BookExpo America in New York City this morning. That power, as Bhasksar sees it, has devolved to readers. Or, at least, that’s the impression that many within the publishing industry seem increasingly keen to convey. “That the customer holds all of the power is clearer than ever today,” Tom Chalmers of IPR License wrote yesterday, “thanks to the…

    13 May 2015 | 8:36 am
    So let's set the Wayback Machine back eight years. I was a newish writer with a legacy publishing contract and a blog, doing what I could to get my name out there. I was approached by a fan, Rob Siders, who noticed that I didn't have a Wikipedia page and offered to set one up for me, free. He was into coding, liked to read and write, and was one of those forward-looking types who understood that tech forged the future whether Luddites wanted it or not.I thanked him, and asked if I could return the favor someday. He asked me to keep him in mind if I ever needed to do any sort of computer…

  • The Path to Success

    12 Apr 2015 | 12:06 pm
    On the surface, the path to becoming a successful writer has three key components.1. Write a great book.2. Do whatever you can to make that book a success.3. Repeat steps 1 and 2. Like all paths, just because the path exists doesn't mean you'll be able to follow it. There are known routes up Mount Everest, but there are no guarantees you'd make the summit no matter how good you are or how hard you try. Even the best mountain climbers must deal with the unpredictability of weather, among many other bad things that can happen.Luck is always a factor.Even if you're an Olympic gold medalist…

  • 10 Little Known Facts About Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

    22 May 2015 | 5:43 am
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born 156 years ago today! To celebrate the beloved author's birthday, we've gathered a few surprising, but true* facts about the Sherlock Holmes creator.1. He compared Sherlock Holmes—arguably his greatest creation—to pâté de foie gras....And Doyle really hated pâté de foie gras. He told a friend, "I have had such an overdose of [Holmes] that I feel towards him as I do towards pâté de foie gras, of which I once ate too much, so that the name of it gives me a sickly feeling to this day."2. We live in a world with Doyle's fiction because no one wanted him as…

But because she is almost completely blind, her overprotective brother insists that she have an armed bodyguard by her side at all times-the very irritating Captain Trevillion. FROM EVERY DANGER Captain James Trevillion is proud, brooding, and cursed with a leg injury from his service in the King’s dragoons. Yet he can still shoot and ride like the devil, so watching over the distracting Lady Phoebe should be no problem at all-until she’s targeted by…

    Dear Ms. Burkhart: I’ll admit when I first started this book I didn’t think it was for me and I hadn’t even reached the gritty love scenes yet. The book opens with the two protagonists–Charlie MacNiall and Ranay Killian meeting yet again at the vet clinic where Ranay works. Charlie is bringing in his King Shepherd and Ranay is the receptionist. Charlie mentions that he needs someone to watch his dog for one night. There’s an awfully quick jump from Charlie agreeing to watch the dog to an intense offer of … something from Charlie to Ranay. The thing is…

Your novel, The Duke’s Holiday, leads us into the delightful story of the Duke of Montford, one of (if not) the most powerful man in the kingdom, and Astrid Honeywell, his sworn nemesis. Well…not quite his sworn nemesis. But their families have been feuding for so long that they might as well be lifelong enemies, despite having never met. Their story begins with the Duke realizing that something is very amiss at Rylestone Hall, one of his many properties spread throughout England.

    I know things have been a bit quiet around here lately but that’s because I was (a) cramming for and then taking end-of-year exams and (b) keeping an enormous secret that I feared I might subliminally spill. This morning though, I’m finally able to tell you: [And… BREATHE.] If you’ve been hanging around these parts a while you’ll know that last summer I finally finished a respectable draft of a serial killer thriller I’d been mostly not writing for the best part of two years.

    As you may know, I’ve been rewriting my novel. I started on the 11th January and I finished the main* part of the book at 1:17am this morning, after a thirteen hour writing stint that surely put me at risk for curvature of the spine, RSI and deep vein thrombosis. This isn’t because my agent is some kind of task-master, but because this gap – from the first day I returned to university after Christmas and had handed in my Michaelmas term essays, to this coming Friday when my next two essays are assigned – was the only time I had. If the rewrite ran over, it would clash…

    Penguin Random House: heading for Hachette style fight…or joining KU? Reports in the media suggest we may be heading for another Hachazon War with Amazon playing hard ball (hardback?) with Penguin Random House, the largest of the Big 5 USA trade publishers (trade books are the ones you bought in bookstores…not textbooks and such). Articles such as this The Guardian article by Jennifer Rankin suggest, not unreasonably, that we may be looking at another public and prolonged contract negotiation dispute. That involved Amazon making it harder to get books (both e-books and…

    Our library with photos I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a very visually oriented person. However, I know that lots of people (probably the majority) like to see pictures, in addition to just have me using words to describe something. I’ve mentioned our floor to ceiling library many times in the blog. Those of you who picture things when you read (I generally don’t…again, I know I’m in the small minority on that) have probably created all sorts of images. I’m guessing most of them are much more grandiose than the reality. I knew someone who had a…

People have often asked about copying text from a Kindle book. They want to paste it somewhere else…an e-mail, a Word document, that kind of thing. The answer in the past has usually been to highlight it in the book, then go to https://kindle.amazon.com From there, you could copy and paste. Not very convenient.

    June 2015 Kindle book releases While I don’t generally pre-order Kindle store books myself, I know many of you do. I understand the fun of just having the book show up, but I figure I’ll order when I want it…since I could have it within a minute, usually.… However, it’s worth noting that pre-ordering at a low price will tend to preserve that price. Back when the Agency Model was solidly in place, Amazon couldn’t guarantee that books sold by the publishers using that structure wouldn’t go up in price after you pre-ordered them. It wasn’t likely, it was just…

    At 45 pages and less than 500 words, it’s literally a 5-minute read, but the questions it raises and the thoughts it leaves seem to be really quite extraordinary, at least according to the feedback I’ve been getting. Peter Wilkes – 28 May 2015 The Back Flap So, why couldn’t God be a woman? Really, why not? In this adorably playful, yet poignant and timely book, A Woman Called God asks all of us – women and men alike – to consider how the world would and could look if our universal perception of The Creator were not male but female: a mother-figure of unconditional love.

    I like to read a book where the writer takes care of you. A good thriller is fairly obvious from the first sentence. It’s like getting into a sports car and being taken for a spin.

But when he arranges for Angela Linehan and her son to disappear abroad from her violent husband in London, little does he know that his life will depend on finding her again.

    PROLOGUE - PART TWO The Arctic Trails Have Their Secret Tales By the dancing dim light of the campfire, the group of men surrounding me looked demonic—light and shadow played off their features and made their faces seem lopsided and horrifically deformed. In such light every scene appears monochromatic, with every detail rendered in shades of only black and orange. True colors are sucked away, and objects are repainted in a hellish tint that makes every face look like a jack-o-lantern and the world look like something out of Dante's Inferno. "There you go again," the little…

    Over the years, I have had hundreds of conversations with authors and there are three phrases I sometimes hear that give me pause. “The audience for my book is every man, woman and child on the planet” Identifying your audience is one of the keys to creating an effective marketing plan for your book. If your target is too broad, it will be difficult if not impossible to be successful.  Plus, you set unrealistic expectations that will only lead to disappointment.  Instead you should: Describe who you think will most likely read your book in terms of gender, age, occupation if relevant.

It's strange, because it wasn't intentional. When I was younger, I actually used to avoid short stories like the plague. I much preferred losing myself in big, chunky novels.

Either way, in honor of Short Story Month, Kate Vane and I present our favorites. Prepare for those TBR piles to start…

    Publishers are losing control over the curation of their content, Canelo’s Michael Bhasksar told attendees at IDPF’s Digital Book 2015 conference at BookExpo America yesterday. And readers themselves, Bhaskar said, are taking over. That’s leading publishers and retailers to rethink their marketing and discovery strategies in ways that play into readers hands. But as experts who joined Bhasksar at yesterday’s conference explained, the fragmented landscape readers now dominate may require more targeted, partner-based efforts. Much more.

    27 May 2015 | 10:11 pm
    Baen Books has announced that starting June 10th the company will no longer support the Email my book to Kindle feature. The primary reason for this is due to the new Amazon’s Terms of Use. In essence,  Baen e-books cannot use Amazon’s Personal Documents Service to deliver paid content. In March 2015 Amazon augmented their cloud system that requires users to subscribe to Prime in order to store photos and video. If you are not a Prime member, it costs $11.99 per year.  When this new system went live Amazon changed their their terms of service for a number of things, which…

    Michael Kozlowski
    27 May 2015 | 6:35 pm
    Indie bookstores have enjoyed a resurgence in book sales over the course of the past year. According to the American Booksellers Association, the number of member independent bookstores has increased more than 20% since e-readers took the world by storm. There were 1,651 in 2009 and this figure jumped dramatically to 2,094 in 2014. These days, indie bookstores don’t just sell print books, but e-book as well, and it is a losing proposition. Independent bookstores first started selling e-books in 2010 when the American Booksellers Association partnered with Google. This arrangement did…

    From Digital Book World: Editors and imprints are steadily losing the ability to dictate how their content is curated and discovered, says Canelo co-founder Michael Bhaskar, speaking at the International Digital Publishing Forum’s Digital Book 2015 conference at BookExpo America in New York City this morning. That power, as Bhasksar sees it, has devolved to readers. Or, at least, that’s the impression that many within the publishing industry seem increasingly keen to convey. “That the customer holds all of the power is clearer than ever today,” Tom Chalmers of IPR License wrote…

    From author Todd Moss via Jane Friedman: One of the unexpected surprises of being a new author is how much goes into promoting your books. I was lucky to be published by Penguin’s Putnam imprint for my debut novel, The Golden Hour. Yet even with the backing of a hefty Big Five publisher, I discovered that delivering the manuscript is just the beginning. In 2013, Putnam offered me a generous multi-book contract for a thriller series. During the sixteen (long!) months between signing the contract and the actual release of the first book in September 2014, Penguin provided an enthusiastic…

Now, 54% of the population regularly use a tablet and that figure is set to increase to 63% by 2016 – driven by the success of devices including the Apple iPad, Google Nexus and Amazon Fire. Tablets are the most popular amongst 35 to 54 year olds where take up now stands at 64%. Comparatively, 60% of young adults aged between 16 and 34 use one, and only 37% of over 55s do.

    There’s a buzz-worthy phrase I've been hearing lately around the Interwebs lately: phantom career. It applies to writers and other creative types who end up in an entirely different career than the one they wanted after spending more time on things related to writing but that weren't actually writing.Why Don’t You….For instance, I've set up my own WordPress sites because I don’t want to pay someone and also because I want to be able to update them on my own.

    Because I'm a cheapskate, I found this book on an internet site that offers free and bargain Nook or Kindle e-books. I must have hundreds of them safely downloaded to my Nook and Kindle accounts, all quietly awaiting their turn to be read. Sadly, much like Facebook posts, they're pushed farther on down the line as each day passes (and as I download even more free books), so many of them will no doubt remain unread until the day I die and then someone tosses out my hardware and all is lost... sigh.On a brighter note, Chosen: The Lost Diaries of Queen Esther will not be among those lost.

    As many of you may know, we recently kicked off a new thesaurus. This one is all about Emotional Wounds and the formative impact they have on a character’s personality. It’s somewhat intuitive to see how a traumatic event might spawn specific fears or cause flaws or attributes to form. What isn’t quite so clear is the relationship between a wound and a character’s basic human needs. So I wanted to shed some light on that. First of all, what are basic human needs? According to famed psychologist Abraham Maslow, there are 5 basic needs that every person needs in order…

  • Why R.C. Sproul Believes Every Concerned American Should Read This Book

    Chuck McKnight
    27 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    A cataclysmic change has occurred over the past few decades: our culture as a whole has switched worldviews. Today’s predominate worldview has abandoned the distinction between God and his creation, instead asserting that everything is essentially one. What should Christians think about this? In his new book, The Other Worldview, Peter Jones explains the difference between what he calls “Oneism” and “Twoism.” He exposes the pagan roots of Oneism, and he traces its spread and influence throughout Western culture. Most importantly, he shows us why Oneism is incapable of saving anyone…

    I was working on an e-Learning module on how to “tie a knot to restrain load on the vehicle.” Till date, I have developed more than 1500+ hours of courses. But for the first time, I’ve got a situation where I felt as if I was running out of ideas to make the course interactive. The challenge here was to teach the user how to work around with the ropes. If training was on software simulation, then gamification, scenarios and drag & drop would have made the things interactive. But here it was working with ropes and I was not sure how to make it interactive. Initially, I used static…

That’s always fun to do. After all, without conflict, there would be no story.But not all futuristic societies are advanced.
