Notes from An Alien

~ Explorations In Reading, Writing & Publishing ~

Joel Friedlander ~ The Book Designer

Some blogs throw-off info in all directions yet still remain helpful or entertaining.

Joel Friedlander’s blog is well-crafted and focused on helping folks build the best book possible.

This post makes the 26th time I’ve referenced Joel on this blog —> click his name in the Subject Index Links in the left side-bar to read the other posts

I almost did a post on his article 10 Quick Tips to Get Your Manuscript Ready for Publication but paused and thought it was time to give his whole blog a shout-out :-)

One of the more revealing parts of his blog is the Publishing Timeline where he details his “personal journey from the early 1970s working on letterpress, offset and digital printing equipment.”

One feature of his blog that I make sure I engage with each month is Self-Publishing: The Carnival of the Indies, an opportunity to submit a recent post of mine that has a chance to be linked-back-to by Joel.

The categories for the Carnival are Indie Author, Writing Tools & Tips, Book Design & Production, Marketing & Selling Your Books, EBooks and EBook Readers, and Self-Publishing Success.

Plus, I was honored when Joel asked if I’d Guest Post on his blog about my non-normal method of book promotion: Second Life: Virtual Book Promotion and Word of Mouth.

Joel has over 700 focused, helpful articles on his blog and, for those who may not have the time to go explore in detail but still might have an interest in one of his specialties, here are links to a few Collections of his Topic-Related Posts:

    Joel’s blog is full of information. I always use him for reference.

    I’m glad this worked. I have problems with my wordpress account but apparently I can comment incognito … As I said, and tried to say before ;-) , I have learned a lot from Joel.

    Sure, but without the gravatar. I have to sign out ouf wordpress and use another email adress to be able to post comments that actually appear on the blogs. I have tried to post the same comment twice and got the message that I said this before. The wordpress support is slow … that’s why I’m incognito.
