I'm getting ready to start hawking my ms, Dakota Blues, and I have been encouraged to submit it to two indie publishers. But I don't know what kind of service these publishers provide, or if it's right for me. It seems that, somewhere between self-publishing and finding a traditional agent, indie publishers, unless they offer to help place and promote your work, just seem like a printing service, but I could do that myself if I chose. Am I missing something? Any thoughts? Thanks!

Lynne asked a question about connecting readers and writers. As a publisher...even or maybe especially as a very small one...this is a daily issue - trying to connect my authors with readers. There's Goodreads, Amazon and Kindle boards, and even some of the Yahoo groups. A lot of websites also attempt this...but a really good solution??? Lynne is right. it would be a valuable source.

No stupid questions, Elaine. Welcome!

Book industry sales numbers for July - up for the month but still down for the year, with ebooks continuing to rise and mass market continuing to fall:

And may I make a gentle reminder that this thread is for news about the industry, not personal news about books coming out or readings. I'm adding a thread for the latter, though. Please feel free to post your personal news there. Thanks!

NaNoReMo and the Windward Isles

No, I didn't mean NaNoWriMo. I don't work at that pace, I don't have anything new that I need outside incentive to start, and word count is not my problem. (Ahem.) But I ran across someone doing NaNoEdMo--National Novel Editing Month--which seemed…See More
