It’s Thursday, so that must mean there’s really useful stuff out on the blogosphere today…doesn’t it? YES!
- Let’s start with a case of synchronicity and look at two blogs that both address where to publish e-books. While there’s a fair amount of overlap between them, there are also differences, so it’s worth your time to read through both (and bookmark/favorite-ize them [is that a word?]).
- Jordan Dane’s (@JordanDane) A Checklist for Indie Authors – E-Book Retailers (Post 2) is the second (obviously) post in a planned series of five (the first, introductory one is here) on this whole indie-publishing thing. (And who can’t be intrigued by an e-book with the title Sex, Death & Moist Towelettes [available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords]? OK, I’m sure there are a few out there.)
- Ray Rhamey’s How to Maximize eBook Royalties and Minimize Hassles on Writer Unboxed does cover much of the same ground, but as I noted above, also adds a few different details.
- Janice Hardy (@Janice_Hardy) “takes over” The Bookshelf Muse to write about narrative prose that accidentally consists of lists, and what you can do to spot and fix that when it happens. This is a topic I haven’t seen covered before.
- And finally, 17 year old (yes, really) Anthony Wijaya (@AnthonyNotStark) offers his Top 5 Google Chrome Extensions for Bloggers on @ProBlogger. (In case you’re wondering, they’re SEO for Chrome, Evernote Web Clipper, Google Dictionary, Ruul screen ruler, and G.lux.) I’m writing this post using Chrome, so this caught my eye. But I also use Mozilla Firefox, so I wonder if these “top 5” have counterparts over there. Have to go look. Does anyone out there know?
Happy Thursday, everyone.
