Welcome to the January 13, 2014 edition of tips and tricks for writers and authors. We have a good mix of posts on book marketing, publishing, and writing. Thank you to all of this week’s contributors!

Book Publishing:

Erica Verrillo presents Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity: Everything I did wrong, Part 3: ePublishing posted at Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity, saying, “Many first-time authors focus on publishing the way a pregnant woman focuses on birth. The soon-to-be mother thinks, “I’m going to have a baby!” not “I’m going to have a sullen teenager who hates me and bashes up my car.” I made a number of critical mistakes in publishing both my print and eBooks. If you don’t do what I did, your book won’t have so many accidents later on.”
