Guy Kawasaki – author of APE
I’m working my way through Guy Kawasaki’s APE. Impressive. Packed full of tips and suggestions from people who know what they’re talking about when it comes to self publishing.
Here’s the link to his website. http://www.guykawasaki.com/
I’ll be posting some tidbits here, and what I think are my favorite links.
My favorite tip, just as I’m starting, is that it’s possible to get an ebook autographed. Or, if you’re an author, it’s possible to set up a free account to autograph your ebooks for your readers.
Check out authorgraph (formerly know as Kindlegraph). http://www.authorgraph.com/
Two suggestions I’ve got to act on require me to revamp this site a bit. Stay tuned for that.
Wrote a bit on nostalgia about my brother and me and our childhood passion for horror flicks. Look for it at http://anewscafe.com/2013/02/21/or-so-it-seems-from-sinister-seymour-to-rl-stine/
What a surprise…. got a response from Bob Stine.
I thought it was a prank. Just the sort of thing my brother would do.
Wow, I thought. But then my brother wouldn’t give up easily. So I had to check
Bob Stine’s Tweet
He even retweeted a story link. Sweet man. Twisted, but nice.
What I want to know is how it is that his links don’t get shortened by bit.ly? Creepy…. 🙂
By the way, a big thanks to my wife, Karin, for taking both pictures I used in this story. Including this one below.
JD and Robb – See no evil – hear no screams
Now that I think about it… he may not have wanted to be seen in public with me. Thanks, Bro…. and happy 55th birthday.
