So long, and thanks for all the fish. 

We’re breaking up with you. But it’s not you, it’s us. No, seriously. It’s totally us.

We up with the concept of ePublish Unum about four years ago. Since that time, digital publishing has moved from a niche to respect. And if we played a tiny part in making that happen, we’re satisfied.

But we’re moving on. Thanks to everyone who attended one of our events, signed up for a class, purchased one of our books, watched the Books & Beer Hangout, or engaged our consulting services. We greatly appreciate the chance to work with you in furthering your career as an author. Our assets -- books, videos, etc. -- will remain at ePublishUnum.com, on YouTube, our social properties, or any number of online bookstores for you to enjoy. 

If you want to keep up with us, we’re pretty easy to find. But in case you don’t want to search around, I’m including our email addresses at the end of this. Please reach out to either of us if you need anything, even if it’s not related to indie publishing. 

Now go publish something else!

Evo & Jeff

Last weekend Evo and Jeff emceed and presented at an indie author conference in Phoenix. Nearly a hundred authors and authors-in-training gathered to learn tips and tricks on everything from social media promotion to legally protecting your work. In turn, we learned what people were focusing on, were worried about, and were excited over. 

On the next epsiode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll look at what we learned from attending an indie author conference, and what it might imply for the state of the indie author world.

What kind of author are you? No, we're not talking about preferred genres or whether you are an outliner or free-form writer. On this episode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll talk about the Reader-First, Author-Second author, and the Author-First author.

The world of fiction and non-fiction books may not seem that different to readers, but there are good reasons few authors excel in both categories. But does that really need to be the case? Recently Jeff Moriarty made the switch from fiction to non-fiction author, and hit more than a few potholes along the way. If you've thought about checking out the grass on the other side of the fence, he has some survival tactics that could save you some of his headaches.

On the next episode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll look at survival tips for fiction authors looking to enter the world of non-fiction. If you’ve made the switch yourself, join us and share your own ideas.

For many of us, indie or self-publishing follows the same flow as traditional publishing, but we're in charge. OK... but what if that's not the optimal way? What if we need to completely rethink the entire process? I'm not talking about cutting corners, but I am talking about a new concept called lean publishing?

On the next episode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll cover this new process at a high level and give you our take on the process. Is it for you? Heck, is it for us? That's what we'll find out.

In a recent survey of would-be authors, it was found that most are unaware of the difference in royalty payments between indie publishing and a traditional deal. Almost all are under the illusion that traditional publishers will take care of marketing for them, and more than two-thirds are convinced they are unable to make a quality book without a traditional publisher.

Of course, you don't think that. You know the score. But knowing what others are wrong about can help you better position youself and take advantage of the less-educated masses. On this episode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll dissect the survey a little more, have a good laugh, and hopefully point you in the right direction.
