HOW TO BE A WRITER IN THE E-AGE; A SELF HELP GUIDE is  99c  until Wednesday. Written by #1 Amazon bestseller +Catherine Ryan Hyde and moi.

You'll see a lot of books out there about how to write, and a whole lot more that promise Kindle millions. But this book is different. It helps you establish a professional writing career in this time of rapid change—and answers the questions so many writers are asking: 

• Does an author still need an agent? Can new writers still get published by Big Five publishers? 

• What about digital-only imprints, mid-sized publishers, small presses—or should everybody self-publish? How can you tell if you've found a good self-publishing partner, or a scammy vanity press? 

• Do fiction writers need a platform? What's the difference between a hook, logline and a pitch? And how are they different from the dreaded synopsis? Does an author need to worry about all that if planning to self-publish? 

• Do you need to spend endless hours on social media? Should all authors blog? What are the secrets of a successful blog? How do you cope with rejection, depression, bad reviews and other downsides of the writing profession? 

How to be a Writer in the E-Age answers all these questions and more in this fun, information-packed book

The really cool thing is that all but about a dollar of the money I loaned was funds repaid by other borrowers.
A portion of the loan helped a member to buy seeds and mineral fertilizer for sowing.

99c for 2 more days! How To Be A Writer In the E-Age: A Self-Help Guide by Amazon #1 seller +Catherine Ryan Hyde  and moi! This isn't your usual "how to make a million with Kindle" or "how to game Amazon". This is helpful stuff for writers going the indie or trad route. Lots about how to use social media without getting overwhelmed, dealing with rejection and bad reviews and lots more "insider" information http://amzn.to/1DjgKU5  #writing

He's settling in well, Jai. He was only being ridden once a week in his old home. The rest of the week he just sat. So I think he likes the added attention.

I'm interviewed today at the Reedsy website. They're a site that lists vetted author service providers like editors and designers. I talk about how blogging can help authors, and also why Google + is so important for raising your blog's profile. 
Here’s another thing that we, startups, have in common with indie authors: we often blog. Whether it’s as a way to establish ourselves (in time) as thought leaders in our industry, to drive traffic to...
