Not Only The Dark

Not Only the Dark: 160 Poems on the Theme of SurvivalNot Only the Dark: 160 Poems on the Theme of Survival by Jo Field

I'm going to go out on a limb just a bit here and recommend this collection of poetry without having read it. Two factors are contributing to my decision:
(1) WordAid says, "Not Only The Dark is our latest anthology of poetry, 160 poems on the theme of survival in aid of Shelterbox...This new and vibrant anthology explores the theme of survival, with poems about war, weather, growing ill and growing old as well as about cities and landscapes, art and music, trees and turtles and the many things that add richness to our lives."
(2) Not Only The Dark includes a poem written by Herscher Project co-owner, Jamie A. Hughes.

I'm looking forward to finding a spot for Not Only The Dark on my shelf of most treasured books.

Profit and Loss

Some disturbing madness was reported in Amazon’s Profits are Small Publishers’ Losses, a blogpost by the U.K.'s Linen Press. I'm a few month's behind with this, but rather doubt matters have improved any in today's economy. Apparently, economic sanity is no better in the publishing industry than in any other.

[Thanks go to author Chris A Jackson for bringing this one to my attention.]

A few things not to do...

In a December 14th blogpost, "A few things not to do", Patricia C Wrede offers some very helpful advice regarding the business end of being an author, including sage thoughts on how to approach the author/reviewer relationship.

I'm amazed at the wealth of information she offers -- all good, sensible, experience-proven wisdom -- and all available free of cost in her blog.

Thanks, Patricia!
