Happy Monday, everyone! Wow, after the 12 days event, I'm tapped out. But, not so tired I can't bring you news of a fantastic new resource for Indie authors. Grab a cup of something to drink and let's get rolling!
If you're not familiar with Joel Friedlander over at The Book Designer, you should be. In addition to his cover design competition once a month (check out the entries and winners for November!), his blog is an awesome resource for all things publishing. IBGW happens to be one of the businesses listed. Go us! Getting to the point, he's recently released the new book I'm gonna tell you all about now.
