Hellfire Publishing is now accepting queries for book-length manuscripts. They are avidly looking for romance, horror, sci-fi, and stories that are intended to be a part of a series.

I'm still a bit ambivalent about book trailers, but are they becoming the necessity this article suggests?  Just today I had another client ask me if it was a good idea. What are your thoughts?

The Packing for Mars trailer really is great! Thanks for the link. I may be beginning to see the point. :)  Up until now, I'd only seen the "animated words with cheezy background music" and agree with your sentiments on those.

If anyone else has any book trailers they really like or that really stand out, I'd love to see them!

Love love love it when clients feel inspired after an edit. Jennifer's YA SF story Qeya is truly lovely. Check it out!

It's because my editor is just as passionate if not more than I am for the story! It makes all the difference :)

Speculative fiction isn't only to be found in the written or film formats, by the way.  If you haven't listened to Ruby the Galactic Gumshoe or The Adventures of Jack Flanders, you are sorely missing out. http://witneyman.wordpress.com/2009/08/28/a-word-on-zbs/

An excellent post from Rich Adin, that gives the most interesting reason I've heard for why editing has proven so resistant to being professionalised.  Cf. de Mello, "Wisdom can be learned. But it cannot be taught."

Several people have asked me about a way to advertise their writing/blogging/photography/art/etc.  While advertising programs like Google's Adwords, Facebook and others can be effective, not all of us "little guys" have the cash to drop on keyword-based pricing, which can get really expensive in a hurry!

I've tried several, and the program I've been most happy with is Project Wonderful. They've been very reliable, and the money I've put into advertising via their site has been well worth it. If you're looking for less expensive, easy advertising, go there and tell 'em I sent ya*: https://www.projectwonderful.com/?tag=28021
