A lesson for writers, from Stephen Sondheim, Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters that never fails to bring a tear to the eye and to rekindle that elusive "muse." "Anything you do, let it come from you, then it will be new...give us more to see..."
Sheryl Sandberg is probably running the book campaign of the year. From a marketing perspective there is a lot to be learned. The combination of "hot topic", "celebrity factor" and "community" obviously plays a big role. #bespractice #marketing #campaign

If you create your own covers then you know how difficult it can be. I have a few tricks that I've learned and wanted to share them with you. This is a site (currently free in Alpha) that allows you to upload a picture and remove the background - http://clippingmagic.com/ I usually have trouble and it takes so long with many of the other products I use, but this one is so easy. I'm not sure when they will remove from Alpha stage, but it's free right now and very easy to use. all you have to do is give a quick swipe to the object you want to keep and then use the red to swipe the area you want to disappear...simple. Try it out for yourself.
Something all writers must learn, eventually: http://buff.ly/16yYPMZ
Interesting insights by Guy Kawasaki on ways publishers can succeed in today's publishing ecosystem.
Hi, we are Babe & Chris! We are very successful bestseller indie-authors from Austria in the heart of Europe and want to publish now our first English translated ebook thriller „Killing is easy“ (German: Töten ist ganz einfach) in the USA, UK and English speaking markets. "Killing is easy" (the first case with Tony Braun) is for all fans of Scandinavian thrillers and those who love the "Nordic Noir" style!!
Last year we reached the number 1 position with amazon.de. In 2012 we belonged to the Top 20 most successful ebook Bestsellers with 2 of our ebook thrillers. Currently we are the most successful indie-ebook thriller couple in the German speaking world.
Now, we want to conquer the US and English speaking market with our ebook thriller "Killing is easy".
You will find us almost every evening in our favourite Greek taverne with beautiful over the Danube river and we like to drink white wine, while our liondog "Jabali" sleeps beneath us ;))
