Morning Coffee – 19 November 2018

I have a few stories for you to read this Monday morning, but first I have a request.

If you see this site mentioned in a podcast or on a blog, can you please take a moment to let me know. I am trying to understand just how far my posts travel, and Google is not as good at this kind of thing as it used to be. (I used to be able to get this info automatically, but the tech no longer works that way.) Thanks!


  • Sam Leith in The Guardian explains why you shouldn’t criticize a difficult book just because it’s a difficult read (some are worth the effort, and others are not) .
  • Draft2Digital has enhanced the author pages they offer to users. 
  • A little self-promotion never hurt: Author Blogging 103: Guest Blogging, or How to Write for Exposure.
  • Emma Brockes discusses the word of the year.

    I’m not sure what happened to my comment on the last post. I click on the “Newer Comments ->” link on the post and nothing shows up. Anyway, I did mention that you get mentioned in other places. I hear you mentioned on the Sell More Books Show all the time and Joanna Penn has mentioned you on her show a few times and I’m sure I heard you mentioned on the SFF Marketing Podcast too. I’ll pay more attention and let you know when I hear it next time.
