4 ways to build healthy relationships with your readers
Writer's Digest
I wrote Anne Rice an email. She wrote me back 15 minutes later. I couldn't believe it. Here I was, a stranger, and she immediately wrote me a kind, friendly note. Having a positive relationship with your readers pays off. Readers are more likely to buy your book if they feel a personal connection to you. They're more likely to mention your book to their friends, because they want to brag about how they interacted with the author.

E-book sales bolster publishers' bottom lines
Publishers Weekly
Although costs associated with reaching e-book settlements with the Department of Justice and state attorneys general cut into some houses' profits, none of the big-five trade publishers posted a margin of less than 9 percent in 2012. And more than one publisher (or parent company) said higher sales of e-books is boosting its bottom line — even if e-books are curtailing revenue growth — and should lead to higher margins in the future.

The Wall Street Journal
By Laura Moser: If there's one thing I like more than reading books, it's sharing my opinions about them. But I'm too overscheduled and disorganized to commit to a book club. So when I heard about the phenomenon of Twitter book clubs — online literary discussions where observations and insights must adhere to Twitter's 140-character limit — I was intrigued.

Amazon is beta testing an automated cover generator for Kindle e-books
The Digital Reader
The cover image for an e-book is important to its success, but it's also a rather difficult skill to master. Not everyone has the artistic skills to design a good cover, but in the not-too-distant future that will no longer be a problem. There's been no announcement from Amazon, but I have just learned that they are working on a new tool that will help self-pub authors make book covers cheaply, cleanly and well.

The simple reason Goodreads is so valuable to Amazon
The Atlantic
Amazon is the king of online booksellers and, by most accounts, the most feared player in publishing. Yet last week it shelled out a reported $150 million to buy up Goodreads, a social network for book nerds with a devoted but far from enormous 16 million members.
