In today’s Journal
* Aggregators (Distributors) and a new resource.
* Of Interest
Only a very short post today.For some reason I wanted to mark the passing of February 1 or something.
Hey, a happy belated welcome to February 2022. Full disclosure, frankly I’m still wondering what happened to 1978. Anyway….
You can still get a PDF copy of my slightly outdated but still very useful book The Essentials of Digital Publishing, a $10 value, free if you email me and ask. The addy is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, you can still get the full PDF searchable archives of this Journal all the way back to October 2014 free, again if you just email and let me know you want them. Wow, do I wish I’d had a resource like this when I was starting out, or anytime in the first few years.
Even if you already use another aggregator like Smashwords (clunky interface) or Draft2Digital (a smooth interface but somewhat limited distribution), I suggest you also take a look at StreetLib. To start, you can Read The Latest Issue of Their Newsletter.
I also recommend a new resource, TNPS (The New Publishing Standard). Extremely interesting and timely articles on today’s publishing. Browse https://thenewpublishingstandard.com/.
Talk with you again soon.
See “Chinese bot translates 300-page book from English to Chinese in 30 seconds with 95% accuracy” at https://thenewpublishingstandard.com/2018/10/17/chinese-bot-translates-300-page-book-from-english-to-chinese-in-30-seconds-with-95-accuracy/. This was first posted back in 2018. Somehow I missed it.
Disclaimer: In this blog, I provide advice on writing fiction. I advocate a technique called Writing Into the Dark. To be crystal clear, WITD is not “the only way” to write, nor will I ever say it is. However, as I am the only writer who advocates WITD both publicly and regularly, I will continue to do so, among myriad other topics.
