Why Self Publishing Your First Book is Easier Than You Think:

Do you write children's or YA books, and are you considering self-publishing? Every year the SCBWI (Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) bestows an award to "non-traditionally" published children books (picture, middle grade, YA). The SCBWI is a highly respected organization, so the Spark Award is worth pursuing. There is no fee to enter. The deadline is December 15.

Translating your self-published book or story can open it up to global markets. Here are some of the best translation services available to writers. Some have no up-front costs to authors, but operate on a royalty-sharing model. I've also listed freelance translator sites and standard translation services. Bonne chance!

Have you recently noticed a new feature on your Amazon book page?

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed for the first time on my book page for "Once upon a Mulberry Field" a little box just under Customer Reviews (with the graphic bars showing the different ratings 5-star, 4-star, etc.).

The little box read:
"Rated by customers interested in
History
5.0 out of 5 stars"

And then a few days ago, the reading in the little box changed to:
"Rated by customers interested in
Romance novels
5.0 out of 5 stars"

I think this is such a neat idea. The only thing that can make it better is if Amazon can display all the categories at once (in my case: History, and Romance Novels) instead of one at at time.

What does your book page say in the little box?
