By Shelley Sturgeon

In case you’ve lost track, today is FRIDAY and we’re about to enter a long weekend, Labor Day weekend. (Labour Day for my fellow Canucks!)

Some great articles here again this week from some of the best writing and self-publishing blogs on the web.

Don’t forget to submit your best blog posts to our next Self-Publishing: Carnival of the Indies blog carnival. Submissions are accepted until September 15th.

E-Book cover submissions for September’s e-Book Cover Design Awards will be accepted until the 30th of September.

Stay safe and be well! See you back here next week!

The Casual Optimist on Dan Wagstaff
Book Covers of Note, August 2020
“A quick update for August…”

Steven Spatz on BookBaby Blog
Can You Rely On Amazon To Distribute Your Books This Holiday?
“I’ve always believed that there’s never a bad time to publish. Indie authors must ignore the “when” question for self publishing. In fact, the worst thing self-published authors can do is not publish their book because of some perceived timing advantage.”

Ruth Harris on Anne R. Allen’s Blog… with Ruth Harris
Who do you think you’re kidding? Writers’ dirty little secret — how to right-size Impostor Syndrome.
“You’ve finished your book (or books), you’ve been published or you self-published. You’ve sold copies, you’ve received checks from your agent, your publisher or from Amazon and iBooks, you’ve been invited to speak at your local bookstore, other writers in your crit group ask you for advice — and you still feel like a faker?”

Mark Williams on ALLi’s Self-Publishing Advice Center
International Insights: Online Book Fairs
“This month it has been announced that Europe’s biggest book fair by visitor numbers has been rescheduled for 2021 as the pandemic continues to ravage the planet.”

Victoria Strauss on Writer Beware
Alert: Scammers Impersonating Major Publishing Houses
“A couple of weeks ago I wrote about scammers impersonating reputable literary agents. … Now publishers are being impersonated as well.”
