Fast Company    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The book Spending Christmas With a Yeti is already at a marketplace disadvantage, what with that title, but then there's the book cover. Oh boy, where to start. The real-life snowcapped mountain intruded upon by a clip-art Ford Explorer and what looks like an albino King Kong drawing? The puke-green background behind the title? Fortunately, for our amusement at least, it was efforts like this one for which the "Lousy Book Covers" Tumblr was made. More

When you have editorial differences
Behler Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
So you've signed the contract, the ink is dry, and now your book is in editing. Yay! Welllll ... maybe. There are times when authors will have differences of opinion with their editor, and this can either go well or make you want to mainline Drano. Let's face it, there are few authors who agree with every suggestion their editors bring up. More

The do's and dont's of a Twitter interview
Mediabistro    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Twitter interview has become a strange, somewhat mythical beast in digital journalism. Using a 140-characters-or-less platform can seem like a journalist's heaven or hell, depending on how you like to gather your information, but there's no doubt that the so-called "twinterview" has become de riugeur for journalists of all kinds.
