Book designer Joel Friedlander offers information, discussions and valuable advice on a wide range of topics of interest to self-publishers at http://www.thebookdesigner.com/.
Joel's blog posts are usually published at about midnight on the west coast. Because I'm an early riser who is usually at this computer at about 3 a.m. on the east coast, I am often the first person to comment on Joel's posts.
Today, I am honored to have provided 24 Practical Tips for Using Photos in your Print on Demand Books, rather than mere commentary on what Joel has written. Please take a look, and also read some of the previous posts. Joel will soon be publishing A Self-Publisher's Companion, based on his blog posts. I expect it to be a terrific book.
In about seven hours, Bill, the guy who drives the big brown truck, will deliver what I hope and believe will be the final proof of my long-delayed Independent Self-Publishing: the Complete Guide. I had similar expectations for the proof that was delivered last week, but found 114 little things to fix; and the delay gave me the opportunity to update my section on Borders to include its bankruptcy. You can order the book here.
