    Often times it seems as if those who work in the legacy publishing world are so out of touch with authors that a translator is needed to explain the true meaning of what has been said.Such is the case with John Sargent, CEO of Macmillan, in his recent public letter.Sargent in crazy bold italics, the translation in common-sense normal font.Dear Authors, Illustrators, and Agents,There has been a lot of change in the e-book publishing world of late, so I thought it a good idea to update you on what is going on at Macmillan. Translation: It will be easier to accept the bad news if I warn you…

    I've written in many genres, including mystery, thriller, horror, science fiction, humor, YA, chick lit (is it still called chick lit?), and erotica.But I've never written a romance.Until now.Co-written with my frequent collaborator, Ann Voss Peterson, WANT IT BAD is a departure from the smut we've penned in the past.Not to say there isn't sex in this book. There's loads of sex. Heaps of sex. Kinky sex.But this is the first time I've ever attempted to actually make sex essential to the arcs of the two main characters. Where 'girl meets boy' is the point of the plot.Ann is an expert when it…

    Lisa Grace: I asked Joe to please respond to the DBW 2014 survey questions because I just love how he rips through all the *flakes. Many people spout utter nonsense that is meant to slam self-publishing back into a little box marked "they can't really be doing that well since everyone knows self-publishers really don't make more than $500 per book, ever" so let's write a survey that highlights that particular wish-oid  (which are related to hemorrhoids.)Joe: You can see some of the results here, but I'm not going to link to the actual survey because I STRONGLY advise writers not to…

  • Evaluating Publishing Contracts: Six Ways You May Be Sabotaging Yourself

    19 Dec 2014 | 11:03 am
    Posted by Victoria Strauss for Writer BewareAs I've followed the discussion (for instance, here, here, and here) over the past couple of days about literary ezine The Toast's demand that writers surrender copyright (the demand was first reported by me, and The Toast has since announced that it's eliminating the demand from its contracts), I've been struck by the number of comments from writers who seem to think that a bad contract clause is not so very awful if (pick one) the publication is great; the people who run it are great; the bad contract clause is not always enforced. (See especially…

    16 Dec 2014 | 10:45 am
    Posted by Victoria Strauss for Writer BewareEDITED 12/17/14 TO ADD: The Toast has announced that it will change its contract terms. See the end of this post.The Toast is an online literary magazine that publishes stories, articles, artwork, reviews, and more. Launched in mid-2013, it's associated with some respected names and apparently draws a sizeable audience.It also offers, in Writer Beware's opinion, a very problematic agreement for freelancers.Contributors to The Toast are paid a flat, one-time fee of $50 on publication. No further compensation is due, even if The Toast re-publishes the…

My contract won't expire for several more years, but I'm very unhappy with [deadbeat publisher] and would like to get out from under it.

  • REVIEW: Lone Wolf by L.A. Witt, Aleksandr Voinov

    20 Dec 2014 | 7:00 am
    Dear Aleksandr Voinov and L.A. Witt, This is the sort of book I find very hard to grade, because although not in any way objectionable, it just didn’t do a lot for me. It came down to voice: the voice didn’t work, and so not much else did either. As someone who spends a lot of time in an online reading community, I was instantly intrigued by the plot. Hunter, the author of a hugely popular paranormal thriller series, is suffering from bad writer’s block. When a friend from his “Wolf’s Landing” board sends him a fanfic, he realizes that it would be the…

I am not sure how many books I have read (tried to keep track but failed), I have read and reviewed some great books which were published before this year, so you will not find them here. Here is the list. Mark of Cain by Kate Sherwood This was probably the best redemption story I read last year. I was not sure how Lucas and Mark could be believably brought together considering the conflict that was set up between them, but I completely bought it. I thought Lucas was a great character, in a sense he reminded me of Jean Valjean. At times maybe…

    Quote: Telling users how to strip the DRM from their legally purchased ebooks is not contributory copyright infringement, according to a ruling last month by a federal judge in New York. eff summary of the decision I'm a little surprised by this ruling but quite pleased it went the way it did.

  • Review: The Man I Love by Suanne Laqueur

    T B Markinson
    19 Dec 2014 | 7:58 am
    The Man I Love is an incredible and emotional tale that pulls the reader into the pages and doesn’t let up until the end. Erik Fiskare, a college freshman, is attracted to the world of theater. However, he prefers being backstage. When he first looks into the eyes of Daisy Bianco, a dancer, he feels ...

    In Lies, Lies and More Lies, author Vivek sets out to prove that Hindutva is an ideology that doesn’t equate to Hindu fundamentalism. He states in the preface that he is frequently asked: “Does a billion-strong community really need protection?” He says yes they do, and his essays demonstrate why the author believes Hindus need ...

    19 Dec 2014 | 5:49 pm
    Amazon announces Prime Now: delivery in an hour I debated the headline a little bit, but decided to go with a clear one. I considered: “Next year: teleporters?” “But that’s twice as long as Domino’s!” “Amazon’s new high tech 19th Century delivery system” Actually, I would have still mentioned Prime Now, but let’s go through this…there’s more to this than the headline might indicate. Yesterday, Amazon announced in this press release that they are now doing deliveries in one hour! Naturally, there are limitations to it…

    Bufo Calvin
    18 Dec 2014 | 6:55 am
    Why have you replaced a Kindle? I don’t tend to replace my Kindles/Fires…I just add to the group. In part, that’s because I want to have older ones around for reference, for when people ask me questions. That plan got a bit derailed when our house was burglarized, and I lost eight of them. However, a reader, SKC, and I were discussing battery life. Not battery charge life (how long between charges), but that the battery will eventually become unable to be charged. Since a Kindle/Fire** does not have a user replaceable battery (as many modern electronics don’t), it…

    Great deals in the top 100 You know how the Agency Model artificially kept prices higher because tradpubs (traditional publishers) were unhappy with Amazon’s $9.99 pricing on most bestsellers and other new and popular books? There must not be enough sad face emojis in the world to express how they feel now! Well, maybe they aren’t that sad. Maybe they are actually making more money by making it up on volume, but I am shocked (and as a consumer, pleased) with the prices in the top ten right now. $9.99? They wish! This list updates every hour, but here it is: Top 100 Paid in the USA…

Mass market paperback sales down 30%…in one year According to this Publishers Weekly article by Jim Milliot e-book sales continued to gain on printed books. I’ve written before about how e-books have largely taken over the market niche of mass market paperbacks, seen as the inexpensive way to get books.

    Frances Caballo
    19 Dec 2014 | 6:05 am
    by Frances Caballo The other day a client asked me why he should give Twitter a try. Oh, my. I always feel a tad floored by the question, not because I think Twitter is unimportant to writers but because Twitter can be critical to an author’s marketing platform. Here’s another reason: I adore Twitter. Explaining why an author should actively use Twitter is somewhat akin to clarifying why you love your mate or why you still have the ashes for your last dog. Where do you begin? I’ll give it a try. Twitter brings Likes to my Facebook page, traffic to my blog, and sales for my books.

    Joan Stewart
    16 Dec 2014 | 6:05 am
    by Joan Stewart Why is it that some writers can describe themselves, their personalities, their likes and dislikes, and promote their expertise, in such a compelling way that you’re dying to know more about them? And they do it all in only two or three sentences? I’m referring to what’s known as the author resource box, the short 50 to 100-word paragraph that you write at the end of articles and blog posts, and on your social media profiles. Digital publishing practically requires that you have one. So why not make it as compelling as possible? I’ve been collecting…

Writing a great book is just part of the equation, your social media platform is where readers will get to know you, find out about what you’re writing, and could determine the success of your book sales. Goodreads One of the most important platforms for writers is Goodreads. Goodreads’ tagline is “meet your next favorite book” and I’ll add “and favorite author!” You can set up a solid author profile…

    Every year as Thanksgiving dinner finishes up I turn my attention to my favorite time of year: the holiday season. Christmas for me has long been a time of nostalgia and tradition. Being an old soul I take this time to reflect on where I’ve come from and celebrations of years past. The Christmas music I listen to doesn’t just make me holly and jolly. It also brings back memories of putting up the tree at my parents’ house and celebrating on Christmas Eve with more cousins than I could ever count. It’s because of this urge to look back that I traditionally fall into a very specific…

    Author of the Making Book blog Interview starts at 21:05 What I’ve decided is going on in publishing is that genre fiction, however widely you want to define that, sort of entertainment books, are basically going to go down the eBook/indie author road. Of course the big publishers won’t want to give it up, and it’s not going to happen overnight, but it seems to me that structurally the potential is there, and all the incentives, perhaps, are against the publishers.

Some people use it to travel, but at home they like to read a book. Some people use it for genre fiction but not for literary fiction. Some people prefer nonfiction in a print book, while they enjoy fiction on an eReader.

Henry Chappell – 18 December 2014 The Back Flap On July 8, 1860, Dallas, Texas burned. Three slaves were accused of arson and hanged without a trial. Today, most historians attribute the fire to carelessness. Texas was the darkest corner of the Old South, too remote and violent for even the bravest abolitionists. Yet North Texas newspapers commonly reported runaway slaves, and travelers in South Texas wrote of fugitives heading…

But Amazon occupies a slightly different–if no less considerable–position in the market for smaller publishers and self-published authors.

    20 Dec 2014 | 6:08 pm
    Over 300 libraries have closed in the United Kingdom since 2011 and many more are on the brink. What can be done to stem the tide? Publisher and philanthropist William Sieghart may have an answer. William Sieghart’s Independent Library Report urges “a reinvigoration of the library network”, calling on Westminster to provide funding so local authorities can roll out Wi-Fi to every public library in England as part of a new national digital resource. The provision of Wi-Fi, it says, is essential, with its lack of availability in some libraries creating “a barrier to the public using its…
  • Overdrive to Provide HTML5 Audiobook Support in Early 2015

    Overdrive has announced that at the beginning of 2015 they will be implementing a new MP3 audiobook system that will be able to play them in any HTML5 compatible browser.

All major internet browsers for desktop computers, tablets or smartphones all have the ability to render HTML5 content. You don’t need any extra plugins in order to get it to work. The new audiobook system will be apart of…

    This time of year, everyone is coming out with essential reading lists to hopefully sell you a brand new e-Book for the holiday season!

I find the discovery process of finding a new book much more enjoyable when I leave my comfortable abode and participate in bookstore culture. On a side note, the New York Times just…
  • Blackberry to Provide Critical Software for Boeing Self-Destructing Phone

    Michael Kozlowski
    19 Dec 2014 | 10:59 pm
    The Boeing Black phone has been in development since 2012 and is primarily going to be aimed at military and government officials. The main selling point is that it will self-destruct if tampered with. On Friday, Blackberry CEO John Chen announced that his company will provide critical software to make it even more secure. The Black phone features dual SIM cards and an expandable back panel for bio-metric scanners and satellite transceivers, the device has a unique tamper-proof covering that will erase data if it’s disassembled. Not much is known about the hardware, but its supposed to…

    Writing Pitfall #4: Mundane Detail   Reposted with permission from Write Divas   Back when I first started writing, I thought details were the meat and potatoes of my stories; the more the better is what I always thought. I had no qualms about writing the step-by-step of how my characters cooked spaghetti, how their shower routines consisted of lather, rinse, repeat with their specifically scented shampoo while their soap was a sliver of an inch thick and purple and slippery, or even how my characters put on their clothes: one article of clothing at a time while describing each…

    Writing Pitfall #3: Flashbacks Reposted with permission from Write divas   Literary flashbacks (analepses), and to a lesser extent flashforwards (prolepses), are the bane of many an editor. Why? Mostly because of misuse by authors who don’t understand when, why, and how to use these tools effectively. A flashback does one thing well. It halts the forward momentum of the story in the present in order to visit something that has already happened. It’s simply not part of what’s happening in the story right now. And its counterpart, the flashforward, foreshadows things to come,…

    All You Need to Know About Copy Editing Reposted with permission from Write Divas   It’s probably crazy that I’m excited to write about copy editing, but there you have it. I am a total editing geek, and I will mentally edit Facebook posts—my own as well as others’—tweets, blogs articles, books I’m reading… you get the point. I take my editing very personally, and I put everything I have into each manuscript I work on. I have been known to call fellow editors in horror after finding  a typo in a book I’ve edited—yes, there’s not an editor out there who’s perfect.

As a writer, or as a person who only writes on social network, you do spend time (or waste time, according to some) on a variety of social network platforms. Yet, as from today, that time and the content, be it text, picture or videos or anything else, can earn you a residual income. See, 4 days ago, I was invited to join tsu.co , through one social network or another, it does not matter. I…

    Writing Pitfall #2: Prologues and Epilogues Reposted with permission from Write Divas So you want to write a prologue or epilogue. Yeah . . . no. Don’t. Okay, okay . . . that’s a bit harsh, so let’s back up for a moment. What exactly are prologues and epilogues, and what function do they serve in a manuscript? To understand this, we should start at the beginning—with prologues, of course. What is a prologue? Merriam-Webster defines a prologue as “the preface or introduction to a discourse, performance, or nondramatic literary work.” Which begs the question: under what…

    From The Guardian: “Under certain circumstances,” declares Henry James at the opening of The Portrait of a Lady, “there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” “What part of confidante has that poor teapot played ever since the kindly plant was introduced among us,” observed William Thackeray in The History of Pendennis. And, as he remarks ironically, “what a series of pictures and groups the fancy may conjure up and assemble round the teapot and cup”. 1 Catherine de Bourgh’s condescension (1813) Tea is…

And some, like these nine, have specific food requirements. 1. AGATHA CHRISTIE Christie’s favorite mug may have read, “Don’t be greedy,” but according to her grandson, that was “an injunction she never showed any sign of obeying.” She used it to drink heavy cream—no coffee. For a snack, she had scones and Devonshire cream … minus the scones. 3. HONORE DE BALZAC Balzac was also fond of coffee, by which I mean he was…

[T]his is exactly how writers get screwed: by making assumptions about a publisher’s intentions, by letting their emotions overrule their business sense, and by forgetting that, in the author-publisher relationship, the publishing contract is the bottom line. Don’t assume that every single word of your contract…

    Passive Guy
    20 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    From The Wall Street Journal: Since the dawn of domestication, lovers of the written word have been drawn to cats. Perhaps it’s because reading is a solitary activity but feels less so when a cat’s beside you. Perhaps it’s because cats are delicate—like a finally wrought sentence or a clever turn of phrase. Or because cats remind us of punctuation—compact as an ampersand, with a question mark for a tail. Or maybe it’s just that a cat is a reader’s ultimate excuse for sloth. No one else is going to be okay with you lounging on the couch all day so that you can finish reading…

    So Over My Head (Book 3 in the Charmed Life Series) by Jenny B. JonesIt’s rare that I read YA books since, well, I’m not a YA. I’m a MA (middle aged adult) but still, if the writing is solid and intrigues me I will pick them up. Or three of them, as I did recently with Jenny B. Jones’ “Charmed Life” series. I adore her writing and one thing I like about her YA works are that they are not written down to a young audience. I know that I’m not the only one that reads her YA stuff, either. At the ACFW conference last year, I embarrassed myself when I saw her on the elevator by…

I’d decided during the year that I was going to try my hand at self-publishing, and while I didn’t necessarily have a specific plan, I knew doing something was better than doing absolutely nothing. When I pressed the lovely button that sends chills and waves of panic through many authors, I knew I was taking my first step,…

    Hi everyone! With it being the Season of Giving and all, Becca and I thought we would wrangle together a small gift for you: Emotion Amplifiers, the popular PDF companion to The Emotion Thesaurus, is now an ebook. Even better, it’s free. As writers, we all understand just how important emotion is. Commanding it well means creating authentic characters who share their raw, powerful stories with readers, pulling them in deep and making them care. But how do we push characters to the edge of an emotion? How do we draw out every last drop of tension that’s possible? The answer is to…
  • Four Logic Problems that Will Ruin Your Day (and Your Manuscript)

    Becca Puglisi
    17 Dec 2014 | 2:48 am
    As I’ve mentioned in other posts, there are a number of reasons why I may toss a book aside and never pick it up again. Clichéd characters, dragging first chapters, too much going on…the list, sadly, is long. (For my own personal list of what NOT to do in the opening pages of your story, check out the What Killed It For Me series.) One of the things that most certainly WOULD kill it for me is when there are problems with the logic. If the author contradicts himself or something happens that totally doesn’t make sense…I don’t have much patience for that, and I…

    Hi everyone! Because it is crazy town in Angela’s house as she tries to keep up with deadlines and prep for Christmas, she’s giving a past Seekerville post some new love. Please read on to better understand why compelling Heroes (and Heroines!) MUST have flaws! When we see the word Hero, we think heroic, which is ironic because our protagonists are usually anything but at the start of a story. Instead they are often jaded, lost or incomplete in some way, toting along a collection of flaws and false beliefs about the world and themselves. But that’s okay, because characters that…
  • Overcome Your Book Doubts By Asking WHY

    Today we’re taking a field trip to touch on something all writers struggle with at some point: story doubts. It might come about because of a less-than-enthusiastic reaction from a beta reader, or after requests for fulls go nowhere. Maybe you have rewritten your opening 9,000 times or have three drafts of your novel, all told from different points of view, and still feel uncertain which version is the right one. Doubt – soul crushing worry that we are not capturing our story well enough – can not only snuff out a novel, but the writer’s spirit as well. Jennie Nash has…

    The fast-growing self-publishing environment is attracting all kinds of start-ups and companies that intend to serve authors. However, most of them seem to aim at the periphery of what authors really need, which in my opinion, is primarily editors and cover designers. Then I met Ricardo Fayet at a number of events, and discovered that his start-up, Reedsy, is aimed at connecting indie authors with editors and other professionals. The providers on the site are curated so you can trust that they offer a quality service. Reedsy itself is a partner member of the Alliance of Independent Authors,…
