Electronic Magazine – August, 2014, v13#8: Marketing Monday, Aug 11 2014 

Don’t lose sight of marketing (in any form or format) being an ongoing effort. Never look at a strategy as “one and done”. It should continue and plans evolve – unless you have sold out of a planned, definitive edition and have no plans of ever again republishing.

Publishing Prices Update Monday, Feb 23 2009 

    Small run publishing fees have had the following changes:

    • Manuscript check has changed from a flat $10.00 to $20.00 for up to 300 pages. Spot checking is still available at $10.00.
    • For full color bindings, we are instigating a design deposit. If a camera ready file doesn’t need any work during production, it will be applied toward the balance or refunded. If adjustments are necessary, the deposit will be used.

    • For ultra-small run soft bindings (less than 100), a setup fee may apply. This used to be $125.00. we are pleased to announce that most will now only be $75.00. If we can group projects, we will do so and return the fee to you.

Don’t be bullied into Windows Vista. Every new version of a program (or operating system) means change. Unfortunately, you will have to make a plan to eventually use the new system, but it doesn’t have to be today. On your “to do” list, research Vista online, check out a library book, schedule a “study date” with a friend who already has it (offer to bring the snacks), attend lectures or even an evening Vo-Tech class on the subject. Even if you need a new computer, you may be able to put it off until you’ve had a chance to make friends with the new Windows.

Are you one of those folks who can’t seem to get the mouse clicking on the right button? Lots of times, it can be as simple as being left handed – yes, a mouse is by default right handed. Do you continually click the right button, instead of the left? If you don’t share your computer with many others, you can change your mouse to respond too your right clicks (just remember that if you do, all instructions to left click will be right, etc. instead):

(XP instructions) Access your computer’s control panel (double click the “my computer” icon on the desktop; in that window, click “control panel”  in “other places” from the left column). In the control panel, double click “mouse” – this will bring up a mouse dialog box. Under the buttons tab, click the check box for “switch primary and secondary buttons” – the graphic to the right will then change buttons. Don’t forget to click “Apply” (right button now) at the bottom of the box to close it. If you don’t click the Apply button, the buttons may not remember the switch.
