Lots of action in indie publishing this week, and some great articles for your examination. Of the many, here are my five:

Russell Blake on Russell Blake
Thank you readers!!!
“It is possible to make good money as a self-pubbed author – way more than I’d be making if I was trad pubbed with those kinds of sales numbers. So the landscape has changed.”

Jane Friedman on Jane Friedman
5 Principles for Using Facebook
“Facebook demands consideration from nearly everyone, because choosing to stay off it means stepping away from the social sharing and conversation of 800+ million people.”

Kit Foster on The Independent Publishing Magazine
Cover Design Tips
“Try, if you can, to distil your novel down to one key idea that you will represent on the cover. Avoid trying to graphically represent every element of the plot on your cover.”

Suzannah Freeman on The Creative Penn
6 Ways Bloggers Can Avoid a Visit from The Grammar Police
“Always endeavor to present your readers with a polished product, even if you’re giving it away free of charge, even if you’re tired, and even if you think readers should cut you some slack.”

Lindsay Buroker on Lindsay Buroker
Are More Authors Than You Think Making a Living Self-Publishing?
“What impresses me is just how many indie authors are in there, going neck-a-neck with well-established Big 6 authors. That we’re able to sell our books less expensively certainly doesn’t hurt, but the big boys don’t have as many advantages in online stores as they do in brick-and-mortar establishments.”
