The world just ended, then began again, faster than the blink of an eye. It’s a new year and we’re all reborn. I choose not to look backward at this blog’s empty months, and I don’t intend to make predictions about its future (futures don’t exist). But I do want to draw attention to an article by Nina Shengold in this month’s Chronogram magazine about the healthy state of self-publishing in the Hudson Valley. I merit a couple of minor mentions as well as appearing in the group photo, and I think it’s safe to call myself a veteran in this rapidly changing field since I’ve worked in it for over a decade (see Bliss Plot Press).
Read the article here: Brave New Books: Hudson Valley Self-Published Authors Take the Reins.
I’m sure each of us surveyed provided a wealth of information that Nina didn’t have room to use. Want to know more? I’m happy to share my experiences with anyone who asks.
If you think self-publishing might be for you, but you need help finding the services that will bring your book to a professional level, please feel free to contact me. As the one-man production team for Bliss Plot Press, I’ve developed solid skills in both editing (in addition to Bliss Plot, see this) and book design (also this and this), but I have a rather full schedule, so I would gladly act as connector to hook you up with very competent editors and designers that I know.
Also, browse my YouTube page for eight video book trailers (among other things) I’ve produced.
Happy New Era of Author-Friendly Publishing!
