Re: Digital Book Publishing

Hi Writers,

It's Jason in Salt Lake City. Here is a link to an article that explains why digital book publishing is good for indie authors. It appeared in the Wall Street Journal online and is titled "'Vanity' Press Goes Digital." I hope someone finds it helpful.

Also, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice about organizing — and more importantly — incorporating the vast amount of ideas and material that one compiles in the process of writing one's masterpiece. You see, my mom and I have both encountered this problem. We tend to jot down a lot of good stuff during the months of planning, literally more than 100 pages, and then have trouble reining it all in to funnel it back into the pages of our writing. So far, our best approach has been to build and perpetually revise a "master outline" in a simple Word document. But any advice or thoughts on how you've handled this challenge would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

One-sentence update on me: I'm still writing (of course), and I'm starting my own film podcast later this month; so I'll share my link once it's up and running, in case anyone is interested in checking it out.

Take care, friends. Ah, I loved summers in the Ohio Valley...
