This week on IF I HAD TIME I talked about Genre Conventions and their importance to the writer. A life that can sometimes be a solitary one even with all the voices in your head. Another reason it is important to attend is for the networking, a chance to step outside of their daily life and to recharge and energize. A couple hints on how to register for conventions for free were given.
I also talked about last week's convention that I attended in Cleveland, www.clevelandconcoction.org. It’s a local one for me so I was able to attend each day and return to the comfort of my own bed each night. It’s not the same as getting away for the weekend completely, but still energizing.
This week on IF I HAD TIME we talked about The Cost of Publishing. Primarily we discussed the production and printing related costs for Trade Paperbacks, which is the main print format for micro and small-press print publishers.
This week on IF I HAD TIME we continued our series on EntrePublishing as we talked about Your Publishing Team and the components that make up a small-press publishing company.
This week on IF I HAD TIME we discussed the differences in the various publishing models that exist for the EntrePublisher and the importance of knowing how each operates. We also talked about ISBNs and how they can be confusing for some first-time indie-publishers.
Welcome to the If I Had Time Podcast, a brand new series of talks brought to you by me, James O. Barnes. In our first episode we talked about what each episode will look like, what we’ll talk about, where to find it, how to ask questions and how to listen to it. I also went into a little bit about how I got into the publishing business.
