Self-Publishing Advice for Writers — Safari Friday searching the web for writers and readers
BOOK DESIGNER is a blog offering practical advice to independent authors who want to self-publish. It is written by Joel Friedlander who must have print ink in his veins. His print and publishing career dates back to 1970s when he was a young college student helping out in his father’s print shop. He started self-publishing in 1986
This is his blog mission statement:
“Writers change the world one reader at a time.
But you can’t change the world with a book that’s still on your hard drive or in a box under your bed.”
And he wants to make that book look as good as possible.
In addition to over 700 informative and fluidly written blog posts on such subjects as copyright, typefaces, and understanding how Amazon works out its bestseller list he offers useful articles and free PDFs you can download.
One available right now is a 24-page report giving self-publishing tips, resources, do’s & don’ts etc.
He also offers paid for services such as the charmingly named “Rent My Brain”which is an online 1-2-1 consultation.
If you’re thinking about self-publishing this is a blog you can’t afford to ignore.
I’ve been following it for awhile and I always click on the email alerting me to a new post when it arrives in my inbox – it’s a must-read which is also a good read.
And while we are on the subject, have you thought about following this blog? It means never missing another post (and that’s all). Just a click on the box on the right.
Safari = Swahili for long journey.I am on the look out for anything accessible from a keyboard that educates, entertains, intrigues, raises a smile. Anything that helps a reader get through the day or a writer the next draft. Let me know if you write a website that you’d like featured or discover something that really should be shared.
