Book Description

"I feel like I'm looking through a hole in the fence at a new construction site. This is an interesting view into how some authors are thriving in the radically changed publishing industry. A short, intense exposure that makes me wonder if I should go ahead and jump into the fray with my own writing."
Craig Dyson, Minneapolis

What happened to publishing in 2011? How are writers benefiting from this changed environment? From the independent author's perspective, this was the year of the sea-change.

While traditional publishing continues with thin budgets, insufficient marketing and long delays before book releases, indie authors-turned-publishers are reaping the rewards of being innovative with their own content. This ebook explores how the tables have turned, what some authors are discovering on the path of publishing, and how authors may hold the keys to the survival of beloved local booksellers.

5.0 out of 5 stars What are You waiting For? Time is now Innett? June 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a Little Book with a BIG message! As a recent convert to the Stinnett E Book Stable it wouldn't matter what Suzanna published I would have to have it. Am I losing my marbles? I don't think so. It would be fair to say though, that in just three short weeks,the Kindle experience has taken over my previously miserable(almost)existence and am devouring anything and everything that starts with a capital K!

I suppose the first impression of a written work is the Title and so it is through Suzanna's straightforward titles that you are reading this review now. Her Four Hour Publisher ebook caught my eye on day one of my Kindle experience and here we are again with a short and VERY sharp introduction to the self publishing timeline.

Loads of background facts here and plenty of Stinnett Snippetts to whet the appetite of any recovering procrastinator. You all know who you are! So take heed my brethren and do what you have always dreamed of...that of becoming a self published author,knowing that, when you take on board all that Suzanna has to offer (and for goodness sake get going Now)you will be successful.

All of Suzanna Stinnett's stuff(sorry writings)is/are from the coal face and will motivate you to take action. Now go read her other, not so little gem especially for Bloggers who wish to extend their reach.Turn your blog posts into ebooks

More About the Author

Suzanna Stinnett was born in Oklahoma and lives in the San Francisco Bay area as well as Duluth, Minnesota. Among her early influences were the Carnegie Library, the meditative bison of the Wichita Mountains, and a family of readers who loved language. Formative years included tolerance-building exercises such as sitting in scratchy petticoats for long hours in Baptist church pews, where she was frequently told to "be still." During these trying hours, her mind was likely to be filled with rhymes and images from Dr. Seuss books.

Storytelling began early, before the first year of school. Stinnett wrote three novels during her 20s and 30s, while producing workshops on brain health and the non-fiction book on the imagination, later published by Sourcebooks as "Little Shifts."

Since the 1980s, Suzanna has enjoyed the Bay area, mainly living in the decadently fertile counties directly north of the Golden Gate. She draws inspiration from the fog-wrapped Pacific coast, and has lived among the elk and bobcats at the shore of Tomales Bay.

Today she can be found writing fiction in the coffee-shop churches of Marin and counties northward, wearing soft clothing with the neck tags carefully removed. She is currently working on picture books and chapter books for early readers with a focus on space and science. The chapter book series is "Starship in the Attic," and the umbrella for these adventures is "Starship Makers."

In the mid 1990s she began pursuing her vision to make writing and publishing tools available to everyone. This vision emerged as Bay Area Bloggers Society, a user group in the San Francisco Bay area with a 700+ membership and local sponsors including O'Reilly Media.

With the Starship Makers and Starship in the Attic, Suzanna brings together the exciting projects currently under way in the space industry with the minds of young children who are ready to imagine their own adventures in science and space.
