How has publishing changed? Here are some publishing trends from a writers conference on that topic.#IndiePublishing #PublishingNews

Ozarks Writers League Publishing Trends Conference, August, 2016Our speakers included an agent, an editor, some book publishers, and some independently published authors (including me.).

Theme of the Week –  Mesmerizing Middles!

.Last week's theme was Strong Starts. You can hear that message in Episode 25.

This week is all about how you can create mesmerizing middles and keep up momentum. Today's message for free listeners is about keeping up your publishing momentum.

It's all too common for authors to get excited about podcasting or creating videos or being on a new-for-you social network…only to lose momentum a few weeks later.

ITunes is littered with podcasts of 10 episodes or less, because the podcaster couldn't or didn't choose to keep up with the workflow of regular episode production.

So often, someone gets excited about blogging..for a few days or weeks. Then pretty soon it's more than a month since the last post.

This sporadic production or waning wandering is NOT the way to build your author platform! You want to keep up your momentum, and this week's episode will help you do just that.
