The Weekend Edition


People who are sweating some fine details like to say they are “dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.” Of course, writers literally do that all day long, but I’m more interested in the idiom: “To take care of every detail, even minor ones; To be meticulous or thorough,” reads the definition.

Today’s message is about being detail-oriented when it comes to self-publishing. One of the most important—and misunderstood—detail concerns the ISBN. Otherwise known as the International Standard Book Number, it’s a small, yet important, issue for successful self-published authors.

I published a post on the BookBaby blog awhile back that attempts to answer some of the most popular questions about that little 13-digit number. You can read all about it here.

And speaking of small details for books: Here’s a story about some mysterious bookplates and their origin. As long as there have been books, their owners have been finding ways to leave marks on them. Learn more here.


All the best,

Your book needs editing, design, and marketing (even if CreateSpace no longer offers these author services)




When my manuscript returned from an editor’s desk carved in red ink, I learned one huge lesson: a book simply won’t be publishable without professional author services like editing and design. Read more.



Structural language is the foundation of a great story




Analyzing the structural language of a New York Times best seller can give you a whole new view of writing and how great stories are put together. Read more.



The drama is in the details (the humor, horror, and suspense are too)
