The Self-Publishing Stigma – is it really gone?

Sometimes great ideas and trends start with a wave so big, they are hard to ignore. For others they begin almost unnoticed and go by for years, virtually undetected until suddenly they are not only part of our lives, but part of our culture. Back in 1999 I saw an article, a tiny piece in The New York Times about a company called Fat Brain out of Campbell, California. The article talked about their digital publishing, at the time referred to as Print-on-Demand, printing books as they are needed. I was just noodling with the idea of starting my own company back then, an idea which didn’t fully come into being until 2000. But the article intrigued me. If books could be printed one at a time, instead of in lots of several thousand, what could this do for publishing?

Writing

Karen M. Rider presents What is Magical Realism? posted at Karen M. Rider, saying, “What is Magical Realism? Who writes it?

Magical Realism appeals to readers (and writers) because it offers a worldview in which the natural, physical laws of the universe are not the only plausible explanation for events in the story (or in real life, for that matter). While the reader realizes that the rational and irrational are conflicting polarities, they are not disconcerted because the author has established the fantastical (mystical, metaphysical or supernatural) within the context of the natural or ordinary world.”

Chrys Fey presents How To Write Romance posted at Write With Fey.

Samir Bharadwaj presents Clear-headed Writing posted at Samir Bharadwaj dot Com.

Lisa Romeo presents Writing Steps and Lists posted at Lisa Romeo Writes, saying, “I talk about how a writer can create to-do lists that go beyond listing deadlines and/or hopeful goals, and instead break the actual writing process down into specific, measurable steps.”

Nick Daws presents Don’t Be Scared of Writerly Rejection! posted at Nick Daws’ Writing Blog, saying, “In this guest post freelance writer and writing teacher Daley James Francis offers some encouraging advice about dealing with rejection, something every writer has to face at some time in their career.”

Self-Publishing

Joel D. Canfield presents Getting Your Book Out of the Someday Box posted at Someday Box, saying, “It’s a series of 16 short (3-minute) videos with accompanying text which describe the process of publishing your own book: all the steps needed, and some advice on where you’re likely to need help.”

Book Marketing

Writing

Karen M. Rider presents A Writer & Her Daughters Balance the Real World with The OtherWorld of Writing posted at Karen M. Rider saying, “Time spent in the OtherWorld of Writing usually doesn’t have an immediate pay-off for us writers. And, there is no instant gratification for the child who slips unawares through the portal into our hidden world. Sometimes, though, at the twilight betwixt and between these two worlds, something magical happens and we are able to share it with our children, making them feel less like outsiders to the OtherWorld of Writing.”

Chrys Fey presents How to Write Action posted at Write with Fey.

Jessica Clark presents 30 Famous Authors Named Ken posted at Kenney Myers, saying, “Welcome to the first of many in my series of famous people with Ken as their first name (or a derivative like Kenneth, Kenny, or even Kenney).”

Fiona Malby presents Editing and the overuse of words – make each word count posted at F.C. Malby saying, “This is a blog post on the editing process of writing a fiction novel and how to cut out the unnecessary words. Writers tend to use too many words in places and the manuscript needs to be tightened and sharpened.”
