I do begin to think that somewhere along the line most authors are going to consider publishing an eBook. That too many folk are already taking this route is not an issue. I would much rather keep with a traditional publisher, but the technology might take us over. This is an up-to-date article...

There are many positive things to say about eReaders and eBooks. There are many negative things to say about ePublishing. I do prefer gatekeepers and I do see a fall in standards. I am concerned that, if a novice is confronted with an array of mediocrity, then the less-mediocre...

A corset advert from the Ladies' Home Journal 1906.  When in doubt about what to write about, do Ladies' Underwear. This ad is from the 1906 Ladies' Home Journal, which I bought off eBay while researching my digital trilogy School Marms and Suffragettes, Threshold Girl (about Flora...

Insight often comes from strange places. At least it does for me. I was watching Cranford and one of the characters, Lady Ludlow, was opposed to young Harry being taught to read and write. She didn't want to end up like her cousins across the channel in France with her head lying in a revolutionary...

(This is  the kind of thing I did for a living a few years ago. I got good press too, often front page stories. I was amazed at how my 'pressers' were often used verbatim or practically verbatim by the busy reporters. Top reporters, too! It's a good way to ensure the info in the article is...

The salient point here, in my ever humble opinion, is that kids in the UK are still reading books. I like books to be *real* (you know - solid entities which stand alone and are constructed of paper products) BUT - I much rather that children are still reading them. No matter the source....

Amanda Hocking is in a unique position to detail the differences (and similarities) of producing and selling eBooks and paper books. Putting aside her own fame and success (for this would not happen to everyone) this is still an informative description of the different routes taken by the same book...

  I had someone very well respected in publishing take a look at my self-published novel: My Name is Butterfly.   The person gave her honest review of the story and some of what she said I've heard from other people in the industry who have read my previous books as well as every day...

I do not want to have to take upon me the chores which publishers historically have done. I want external editing, promotion and distribution. I am content to have a publisher create the unit of the book, whether on paper or digital. I also prefer to have reputable publishers vet potential works to...
