I was intrigued by the title of this book - writing aneBook in 7 days? But that's exactly what Jim Edwards andJoe Vitale show you how to do.

However, your eBook doesn't have to be 100 pages. In fact,Joe Vitale's best selling eBook 'Turbo Charge Your Writing'is only 22 pages (and 2 of those pages are order forms).And the authors give the example of someone who wrote abook just 7 pages long that sells for between $30 and $50.The fact is that people are swamped with information. Sothe shorter your book, the better.

Vitale and Edwards both have impressive track records inonline publishing. Joe Vitale (also known as 'Mr. Fire') issomething of a legend in the world of marketing. He haswritten over 12 successful books and has helped more than200 authors to write, publish and promote their books.

Jim Edwards writes a syndicated newspaper column called'NetReporter.com' and is a frequent guest speaker atnational conferences on topics such as search enginetraffic generation and 'shoestring' online marketing. He'salso the author of '33 Days To Online Profits' and 'TheLazy Man's Guide To Online Business'.

If you're like many aspiring authors, you may have the urgeto write your book first and then find out if there's amarket for it. But as Edwards and Vitale point out, that'sa formula for eBook failure.

The book also contains interviews with eight successfuleBook authors, including Yanik Silver, Rick Beneteau, andJay Conrad Levinson.

Publishers are holding their breath to see if President Trump's decision to postpone the imposition of 25% tariffs on $300 billion worth of goods imported from China will become permanent.

The new tariffs, which included books, were proposed this spring. But after meeting with China President Xi at the G20 conference this weekend, Trump agreed to delay any new tariffs as part of an effort to restart trade talks. In his speech, Trump said new tariffs have been delayed "for the time being."

After Angie Thomas requested that she not be tagged into negative reviews of her books on social media, she has received a torrent of abuse.

History has yet to find the book that is universally adored – or the author who enjoys reading bad reviews. While Angie Thomas has topped the charts and scooped up armloads of awards for her two young adult novels, The Hate U Give and On the Come Up, her recent request that book bloggers stop sending her their negative reviews saw her on the receiving end of a wave of vitriol....

At dozens of barbershops and laundromats across the United States, the sound of children reading aloud mingles with the buzz and snip from barbers' tools or the din of washers. Makeshift shelves and crates hold books featuring cartoon characters, stories about pigeons or the capers of superheroes.

This developing movement, supported by nonprofit groups, entrepreneurs, libraries and community fund-raising, is redefining the borders of traditional neighborhood public libraries by creating literary spaces in places where children find themselves with time on their hands.

It is bringing the book to the child, instead of the child to the book...

With concern in the library community continuing to grow over their ability to provide access to digital content, the Council of the American Library Association yesterday passed a resolution to ramp up its advocacy efforts—including taking the issue to Congress.

The "Resolution on E-Book Pricing for Libraries" was adopted and brought to the ALA Council by ASCGLA (the Association of Specialized, Government and Cooperative Library Agencies), a division of the ALA. The resolution references efforts in Canada to alert the public to the problems of licensing digital content from publishers, and proposes to create a new joint working group to more directly confront the issues in the U.S.

Amazon sells substantially more than half of the books in the United States, including new and used physical volumes as well as digital and audio formats. Amazon is also a platform for third-party sellers, a publisher, a printer, a self-publisher, a review hub, a textbook supplier and a distributor that now runs its own chain of brick-and-mortar stores.

But Amazon takes a hands-off approach to what goes on in its bookstore, never checking the authenticity, much less the quality, of what it sells. It does not oversee the sellers who have flocked to its site in any organized way.

That has resulted in a kind of lawlessness. Publishers, writers and groups such as the Authors Guild said counterfeiting of books on Amazon had surged. The company has been reactive rather than proactive in dealing with the issue, they said, often taking action only when a buyer complains. Many times, they added, there is nowhere to appeal and their only recourse is to integrate even more closely with Amazon...

Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden today announced the appointment of Joy Harjo as the nation's 23rd Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry for 2019-2020.
