There are lots of ways to have fun in the summer, you don’t have to go rafting in Bosnia. Instead you can put your feet up, grab your favorite cold beverage, and have a look at what bloggers have been doing the past week. There’s plenty here to sink into, just watch out for the spray.

Joanna Penn on The Creative Penn
A Guide To Rights And How You Can Exploit Them As An Indie Author With Orna Ross
“In traditional publishing, it is the publisher’s job to get as many rights as possible, but they don’t always exploit them. It’s the agent’s job to sell as many rights, and get them exploited, as this brings in more income for the author… But now, in a fast-changing world, indie authors can sell rights themselves. The book is just a starting point.”

August Wainwright on
The Indie 50 – The 50 Best Sites for Indie and Self-Published Authors
“In the end, I decided the Indie 50 should be the 50 sites that, in my opinion, represent the best the Internet has to offer for indie and self-published authors.”

Rich Myer on Indies Unlimited
Sigil: A New and Easy Way to Edit and Format EPUBs
“Sigil is very simple to use. It’s basically a WYSIWYG html editor. For the uninitiated, that means “what you see is what you get.” Almost every e-book file is just a modified webpage. As with the best WYSIWYG editors, you actually do see what you get in Sigil.”

Shari Stauch on Where Writers Win
Author Guest Blogging: 5 Must-Know Sites to Expand Your Audience
“Guest blogging extends your reach beyond your own website and social marketing efforts into the websites and social marketing efforts of others. You benefit from the exposure; they benefit with new, original content for their sites. Everyone wins.”

Judith Briles on The Book Shepherd
Best Posting Times for Social Media for Authors
“For social media and social media posting, the key question is: What is the best time to post to social media? The answer: know your target audience and know your time zones. Adjust accordingly.”
