Hi. Today I’m going to try to share some of the information I’ve learned through webinars and so forth. This is the last thing I’m going to be doing on self-publishing, I have to tell you, because self-publishing has turned into such a racket now that I can’t even keep up.
Isn’t history fascinating?
Would you believe that back in my freelance writing days I used to write case studies of advertising campaigns? It’s true. I used to call lots of corporate librarians and gather information about their employers. And write it up in summary form for an encyclopedia of ad campaigns.
This is what eventually led to my decision to get a degree in library science. That was in 2000. I graduated in 2002, with a perfect 4.0 average, not that it matters much. It’s just a
weird fact about me.
You know, it’s interesting. I see a lot of things going digital. Like issues of Ellery Queen Magazine, for instance. My bad! That’s not a magazine, it’s an anthology!
You can buy them here and here. You can also get them on Amazon. Just search for them there. I’d carry them through D2D, too, but Amazon has made switching distribution so complicated and weird that it’s not worth the bother.
(Disclosure: Every so often, I try to write a Hollywood thing and it goes nowhere, though sometimes it goes nowhere after
someone no one has paid me an amount of any money, nor do and we have we signed a contract, so I have a dog in the writers strike fight, even if the dog never gets thrown a bone who is my regular employer!)
Hey, everyone. Yeah. I found something in the paper just yesterday, Sunday when I was reading it that I thought was kind of funny. Yeah. I believe it’s written as a satirical piece. In any case, the headline was, in the paper, anyway, “It’s fine. We don’t need human actors.” Let’s see. “It’s fine. We don’t need human actors.” Same as online. Sometimes they differ. In any case, I thought this was pretty funny.
