This is a really great conference that shows all the great technology in the book world that is to come in the next few years. As technology takes up a bigger and bigger part of writing, its important to know whats to come in order to be able to predict the future direction of the market. Many big names in the publishing world live tweeted this week in order to give us an idea of what the conference holds for us this year:

I have been wondering how to put a progress bar on my blog for a while. (I’m treating my series as one whole project.) So up pops this handy guide from J Abram Barneck. It is excellent! Of course I could go crazy and add the 2 finished books in the drawer… 2 books plotted… 6 books still to go all from different projects – Beta readers saying my Mars book needs a sequel… but I won’t bore you about my business.
