Thanks to Jason Boog for offering his insights during our August meeting on BlogTalkRadio. Jason edits Mediabistro’s publishing blog, GalleyCat, and his first book, Will Write for Change: How New York City Writers Survived the Great Depression, is forthcoming from OR Books.

During the BlogTalkRadio show, Jason talked about how his book came about, and offered advice and tools for writers navigating publishing in this technological age. Resources mentioned include eBook lists on Amazon, Self Published Bestsellers List, and Soundcloud. Also, here’s the link to Writer Resources on GalleyCat.

Some of Jason’s words of wisdom

1. If you don’t know if you are obsessed enough with a topic to write a book, start by writing an article.

2. Use Amazon as a tool to explore the best pricing, genre classification, and placement for your eBook.

3. If you self publish, make sure to work with an editor. But also work with a writer’s group or support network of readers before you send off your final draft to the editor.
