Somewhere in the Middle of Eternity

About This Writing Stuff...

We have many questions this week ranging from platform building to deadlines, from feedback to self-publishing. To help answer those, we have Jane Friedman, Jody Hedlund, Jami Gold, and David Gaughran, respectively.   Lawrence Block discusses eBooks and self publishing and we get new installments from Dean Wesley Smith in his Think Like a Publisher and New World of Publishing series.  Roz Morris offers advice on writing jacket blurb while Matt Paust announces a decision by the Authors Guild to offer membership to self pubbed authors.
