More News to Use:
Self-publishing authors can now use Google Book Search to embed
easy-to-navigate previews of their books on a Web site or blog,
(like uTube videos) which can lead to more orders:
How does this differ from Amazon's "Look Inside" feature?
Danny O. Snow remarks:
-- It's free.
-- Readers can order directly from you, for more income.
-- It's an open platform, not a proprietary system that holds
readers and writers captives of a single bookseller.
For an example, click the "Free Preview" link in the
right-hand column of this page.
The announcement from Google gives authors and publishers an
alternative way to let readers "look inside" their books in
a more open environment.

Quotation of the Month:
"The writer who neglects punctuation, or mispunctuates, is
liable to be misunderstood.... For the want of merely a comma,
it often occurs that an axiom appears a paradox, or that a
sarcasm is converted into a sermonoid."
-- Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1845)
