January 2013 E-Zine (V12#1): Genealogy Thursday, Jan 17 2013 

Some may feel this is logical, but our staff is surprised how many people don’t do this: Be sure that you have at least one online presence dedicated to your book. This can be a traditional traditional web site, dedicated blog, or social networking account (profile, page, group, etc.). If you have more than one static presence, it is good to interconnect them.

January 2013 E-Zine (V12#1): Marketing Thursday, Jan 17 2013 

Seek book reviews. Many reviewers will want a free copy to keep or donate, while some will work from a loaned copy or alternate edition. One can easily hand out more review copies than you sell, but targeted reviews can be worth their weight in gold.

January 2013 E-Zine (V12#1): Define Thursday, Jan 17 2013 

With a new year, it’s a good time to start over and run the definitions A-Z. This doesn’t mean that if new lingo comes to light before the review is over that we won’t throw it in!

Absorbent Paper (see Paper): Covering a variety of papers made for absorbing water and inks (degrees vary).  Examples: duplicating, filter, blotting and toweling papers.

*Acid Free Books (see Archival): The use of this term varies from the logical definition of the individual words to a wide variety of standards – always have a company explain their definition.  An acid free book depend on internal (book materials) and external factors (chemical processes, environment, etc.).  See Also Archival webpage.
