Hands up if you, too, need a haircut? I just keep thinking while I’m writing this how it’s a good thing that you’re not getting to see me sitting here behind my monitor! Scary times indeed! :-) But seriously, how are you doing?

Submit your best blog posts from the last 90 days to our blog carnival Self-Publishing: Carnival of the Indies for May by midnight tonight (May 15th) and don’t forget that we’re still accepting e-book covers for May’s e-Book Cover Design Awards until the end of the month.

I say this almost every week, but I truly mean it—be well and stay safe!

Beta-Testing StoryOrigin App for Delivering Advance Reading Copies

Jim Dempsey on Writer Unboxed
Your Words or Your Editor’s?
“This month’s fiction therapy is a reply to a question from a member of the WU community, Nanette J. Purcigliotti. … I had edited some of Nanette’s work, and she had some questions afterwards, with concerns that I think many writers have about working with an editor.”

AskALLi Team on ALLI’s Self-Publishing Advice Center
The Ultimate Guide to Hardback and Premium Books
“There are some key considerations to think about before you take the plunge and order a box of hardbacks and I am going to explore a few of them within this article.”
