Love’s Links – Episode 16 – Jane Friedman, Writer’s Digest and Tinychat.com
Janet Fouts looks at tinychat – a light little app that needs no client download. It has a screen sharing feature, can use web cam for a video conference and it even does chat:-)
Publishing books that no-one else sells, leverages enthusiastic communities. F&W has many different interest areas, writers are just one of them.
A key to their success is the contests and other ways they build a writer’s community and help facilitate things that meet writers needs.
80% of Americans have a “book inside them”.
Janet asked about real writers who blog. Margaret Atwood has a blog….
Amazon, Google and Apple – - these are the three forces in the future of publishing.
Jane on “writing on line” – you have to be much “punchier” writing on line. You need visual breaks. Much more sound byte driven.
She suggests copyblogger.com and problogger.com as great places to go to find out more about how to do this.
If you missed it, it will be available on the show site in a few minutes – http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com/GameChanging or go to iTunes and search for GameChanging. And if you go to iTunes — leave a comment or a review — puhleeeeze?
