Did You Know...

In the area of book trailers, everyone knows about You Tube.

But did you know you can post and view trailers on these sites as well?

Meta Cafe
Vimeo
Daily Motion

The more places the better, right?


Everyone knows to check the Preditors and Editors when looking for a reputable publisher.

But did you know that the SFWA also lists warnings about publishers and agents?

In addition, Every Writers Resource and Publishing Central list publishers of every genre.


And did you know this is read an eBook Week? (Visit their website for more information.) Thousands of eBooks marked down or for free on many of the sites and platforms. (Mine are not free, but you can start The Circle of Friends series for .95) Look for bargains and deals on books this week, and start reading digitally.

Thanks for stopping by and picking Spunky's brain. Go forth and conquer!

Thanks for all the links. I have a 50% off coupon with smashwords for the whole month. I guess I should mention it in every post and not just on the side bar.

Thanks for the great links, Diane. It's good to be reminded of the resources that are not so well known, but are valuable.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Thanks, Jules - I try my best!

Nancy, might not want to mention it every time...

Thanks everybody! I guess some things we've known for so long, we just take for granted that everyone knows, too.

Bob Sanchez said...

Thanks for the good info, Diane. And I am fully into reading ebooks.

Cara said...

Thank you for generously sharing such useful information, Diane. I often write and edit books and book proposals for clients, and I was excited to discover the SFWA warnings about unprofessional agent practices, as well as an actual "Thumbs Down" list of agencies that engage in them. I've bookmarked the site.

I didn't know about those three other sites for book trailers. And these other links are great. Thanks!
