Publishing Links from Across the Internet

Here are some links to some of my favorite articles on publishing from around the web.

First off, huge news! Critically acclaimed author and National Book Award finalist, John Edgar Wideman, is publishing a collection of short stories via Lulu, the self publishing turnkey service. AMAZING! Publishers Weekly has the scoop!

J A Koranth has an article up on his blog, A Newbie's Guide to Publishing, that talks about how he sold 30,000 books in less than a year using Kindle. Again, this is an established author that is self publishing his work.

Bestselling author, Alison Winn Scotch, explains what a movie option is and how it works on her blog. Both As The World Dies and Pretty When She Dies are optioned for TV/Film and I really enjoyed this short article.

As someone of mixed ethnicity, I found this update on a recent controversy on the Karen Knows Best Blog to be interesting.

Book deals have a language all their own. Announcements are often filled with vague terminology such as "nice" "significant" and "major." But what do they mean? This post at Just Write a Book Blog explains what those terms mean.

The always amazing Charles Stross (Iron Sunrise rocked!! has been writing a new series of blog posts on publishing. I really enjoyed his first one about common misconceptions about publishing. It's a must read if you want to be a writer.

Author Timothy Long has a really fun interview with David Dunwoody, author of Empire. Check it out here, then make sure to pre-order David's rerelease of Empire.

Just a quick reminder, tonight is my interview with Dr. Pus for the Library of Horror Podcast. The details are here if you would like to listen in or even call and ask a question.
