Indie book of the week

This week’s featured book is, “Grandpa Stories” by James McCann: www.smashwords.com/books/view/256072.

The author is someone I have been fortunate enough to personally work with and has provided us with a great story:

In his own words:

“Grandpa Stories is a collection of stories, my stories. I take today’s readers back to a time that seems so long ago now. The fact is that it really hasn’t been that long ago. It only seems so because of how much change has occurred since I started creating and collecting my stories. It’s not the ticking of clock that makes our stories interesting, it’s the changing of background or context that makes solutions like “pop-tops” and “jukeboxes” fascinating to us now. It was also a time where much of our learning didn’t have anything to do with school. We were taught by watching and experiencing life in ways that are no longer available to our children.

When it is all said and done, we are all the creators and collectors of our stories. As I look towards the end of my life, I rejoice in the honor of loving the people that I have loved, serving the country that made me free, creating the children and all the other wonderful forms of art that I have created.

I will celebrate living and loving it all right up to the moment that I no longer can. No matter what happens next, I am and have always been a very, very lucky man.”

 

Read it. You’ll enjoy it. Have a great weekend! (Evin – http://www.mrgurupublishing.com)

Tools for writers

I probably don’t have to tell you that it’s a rat race out there. Conduct an online search for anything to do with publishing and/or writing and you’ll receive back pages upon pages of information. Sure it’s great to find so much information at your fingertips but that’s also the problem…so much information at your fingertips. It can be confusing and even more so when various articles provide differing information.

Who to turn to? One of my main goals aside from being an indie publishing house and publishing consultant, is to help new and indie authors. I’ll admit. When I obtained my first client, I had to conduct A LOT of research to ensure I was providing her the most accurate information. It was tough! My goal is to try to spare you from this pain. I’ve started to put together a list of resources to assist you along the way. You may have heard of most of them or you may not have heard of anything of them. Regardless, here they are:

I would love to add more and most definitely plan on doing so however, I would also like to hear some of YOUR suggestions. If you have any, please list them in the Comments and let’s help each other out!

At the end of the day isn’t that what it’s all about? Thought so. 😉 (Evin Wilkins – http://www.mrgurupublishing.com)
