Stranger Will is officially available for pre-order. What does that mean to you? Lots.

  1. You know that tingly, nether-region feeling you get when you’ve got amazing leftovers in your refrigerator ready for the next day’s lunch? You can have that feeling now with just a few mouse clicks.
  2. Feel like the hipster component of the upcoming Stranger Will Tour for Strange, like when you know the opening band’s catalog and will take every opportunity to tell fellow concert-goers how much better they are than the main band.

  3. Your bookshelf will also get that item #1 feeling.
  4. Ef you Christmas in December! Try Christmas in March.
  5. Perhaps most important of all: Pre-orders will be personally inscribed. I try to make pre-orders special with all of my books (see video below, created to document the extra special Make Books Smell Like a Bar Bathroom promotion).

With online social media playing such an important role in our introduction and ultimate in-person meeting it made sense that we should take a few moments during the recent AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Projects) conference in Washington DC to discuss the role of social media in the author’s life.

Jane’s passion for the world of e-media is evident.

Jane currently serves as a visiting professor of e-media at the University of Cincinnati, and is a contributing editor to Writer’s Digest.… Read the rest

Caleb J Ross and Nik Korpon sit with Jane Friedman during the AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Projects) conference in Washington DC to discuss the role of social media in the author’s life.

Jane’s passion for the world of e-media is evident. She is the former publisher and editorial director of Writer’s Digest, has spoken at 36 billion writing events since 2001 (give or take a few), and is known within the publishing industry as an innovator, cited by sources such as Publishers Weekly, GalleyCat, PBS online, and Mr. Media. Jane currently serves as a visiting professor of e-media at the University of Cincinnati, and is a contributing editor to Writer’s Digest.

Playing the role of the tech-deficiant, Nik Korpon (Stay God) joins us for this hallway conversation (please, pardon the background noise). (more…)

I am going to start posting weekly (hopefully) spotlights on random Twitter followers. Why? Why not?
