It seems to be a season when the last gasp of summer is in the air, but fall hasn’t really settled on a clear date of arrival. No matter, the indie publishing world continues right along, and this week you’ve got a reappraisal of self-publishing, the spreading of print on demand, staying connected with your audience, new products you can sell, and a primer on WordPress formatting. Have at it!

A Comprehensive Guide to Formatting Your WordPress Posts and Pages
