I’m off to the Denver Comic Con for the weekend. Lots of writing and publishing panels, lots of gamer and geek fun. I’ll report back if anything useful comes up.
Other than that, I continue to slog along on the novel, which once again is finding scenes that I didn’t realize would be there. Always so weird when that happens. I think I’ll have to up the target word count again, to 100,000 from 90,000. The thing keeps growing as I write it.
In the meantime, I wanted to point to a blog post by Melody Simmons, on stock image uses, especially on rights granted by the various stock photo services. On the Resources for Self-Publishers page, I list a number of stock photo sites where you can license artwork for your book covers and web sites. It’s important to note that not all the sites license the same rights, and to know what you need and how to get it (as well as what it can cost you). Melody’s post explains it all very well.
See you next week, friends!
