I have a post up at PubSmart today. In case you haven’t heard, PubSmart is a new writers’ conference debuting this April in Charleston, SC, with the goal of bringing together self publishing, traditional, small press and hybrid. PubSmart is about introducing new models that lead to smart decisions about how to seize opportunities in today’s transformed book marketplace. I’m thrilled to be on the faculty of this terrific new conference! Keynote speakers are Hugh Howey and Jane Friedman, and the faculty includes heavy hitters from all walks of today’s expanded publishing world.Learn more on the PubSmartCon website.
Here’s a preview of my post:

Tomorrow (Friday 2/28) I’m participating in a fun online event in which authors of 16 e-books specifically for writers are discounting their books to 99 cents, and will be hanging out on a special Facebook page to chat and answer questions from writers. The graphic below shows all the books available, and each one is individually clickable.
This is a great opportunity to expand your library of writer resources (dirt cheap!) and get some questions answered. The authors involved will be on Facebook at different times. I’ll be there 3 to 6pm EST.
Click HERE to join the Facebook event, and then on Friday you can show up, hang out, chat, ask questions and enjoy talking books with your colleagues in the business!
Each of these books is going to be 99 cents for Friday only, and then...

It’s rare for me to post anything strictly promotional here on my blog, but today is a special day for me. My first self-published e-book is now available on Amazon! Here’s the info:
How Do I Decide?
Self-Publishing vs. Traditional Publishing
There is plenty of information available on both traditional and self-publishing.
But how do you decide between the two?
How Do I Decide? is a concise, definitive resource that will guide you through the decision, allowing you to ignore the noise and hype and focus on the right path for YOU. This is a fair and balanced approach that avoids favoring one choice over the other—and instead shows you how to determine which best fits your own situation.
About 50 pages jammed full of insider information, How Do I Decide?...

In response to numerous requests over the last few years, I’m excited to finally announce my first series of e-books:
“A Field Guide For Authors”
I’m starting with four titles, which I’ll roll out in November and December:
Taking a cue from the inimitable Michael Hyatt, I’m forming an official Field Guide Launch Team of 100 people to help me get the word out about the books. Members of the Launch Team will receive the following benefits:
Free copies of any two of my e-books
Membership in a private Facebook group for me and my launch team
A listing on this blog that includes your brief bio and a link to your blog or website
My undying gratitude!
Membership on the Launch Team means you agree to:
Help spread the word via all means of...

Do you have something to say? Something inspiring… insightful… helpful… brilliant?
Want to be a guest blogger?
I am taking auditions for guest posts from YOU, my faithful blog readers.
I need a handful of guest posts that I’ll use throughout the summer. My blog is getting over 60,000 visitors per month (100,000 page views) so it’s not bad exposure for you.
If you’re interested, be sure to look over previous guest posts (you can access them by clicking on Guest Bloggers here or under “Find Posts by Subject”). Note their relevance to writers and the high quality of the writing.
Here’s how it will work:
→ In the comments to THIS POST, pitch me your guest post idea.
→ Do NOT email me your pitch.
→ Do NOT write your whole post.
