Buying Advertising

There are tons of opportunities for free promotion for authors, but as the old saying goes "With free, you get what you pay for." It's chancy at best. For some of us, it's about all we can afford, but sometimes we have a bit of money and start thinking about buying a promotional package.

There are many places that will create promotional packages for authors. Likewise, there are a variety of advertising opportunities on websites, blogs, in
magazines, newspapers and ezines. How do you decide on advertising?

I spent several years selling advertising and then several more years helping people buy it. Here are a few things to consider:

Cost


You visit a book promotion website and you see that they will give you a promotional package for $100. The premium package is $150. The Super Colossal Premium package is $200. Another site has three packaged for $75, $95 and $125. The second site is the best value, right?

Not necessarily.  You know the old saying about comparing apples and oranges. To figure costs, you need a standard of measurement. That standard in advertising is Cost Per Thousand (CPM). Let's take an example to make this comparison clear.

You visit two websites of blog tour organizers. Both will place your information on 25 blogs. One charges you $100 and the other charges $150. So, the first is the best deal, right? Well, slow down, Amigos. We don't know from that description which is the best deal. The question we have to ask is how many "eyes on product" we are going to get. You have to dig deeper. What is the total average traffic to those 25 blogs?

Blog Tour A has 5,000 hits on average compared to 15,000 on Blog Tour B. Now for some basic math.

Blog tour A 100/5 = $20 Cost per 1000 impressions.

Blog tour B 150/15 = $10 Cost per 1000 impressions.

Blog tour B actually delivers more "bang for the buck" even though the package costs more.

Before buying any advertising find out the total readership or number of impressions that medium offers and then do the math.

Reach

Reach is related to cost since it refers to two factors: number of readers/viewers and number of ad impressions. Let's define each of these aspects of reach.

Unique Readers/Viewers/Visitors. This is the actual number of individuals who subscribe, buy, watch or surf to the publication. Don't confuse this number with total number of hits to a website. If one person visits a web site five times or visits only once and accesses five pages, that's five hits. If you want to know the number of people you will reach ask the ad representative to tell you the number of unique visitors to the website. The same goes for long term advertising in the broadcast media.

Total number of impressions. This is how many times someone sees/hears your promotional message. If five people visit a website and see your ad, that's five impressions. However, if one person comes to the website five times, that's five impressions as well. The number of impressions is important because advertising has a cumulative effect. The more often someone sees an ad, the more likely they are to investigate the product.

If you can find out these two numbers, you will learn a lot about the medium. Some media, like blogs and certain other websites, have impressions that outnumber unique visitors by many times. That means you have the same people visiting that website often. The same goes for a magazine with a good subscriber base and frequent publication.

What you want to have is some sort of balance. You want to have a medium that has a significant number of unique readers/viewers/listeners/visitors, but you also want something that will impact those people more than once over a period of time. Too few unique visitors and you don't have a large enough base to reach those few who are ready to buy. Too few return visits and you have to sell them on their first impression.

Demographics

Not only is the number of people reached important, but also what people. You could be selling your book about dressmaking and find a magazine with hundreds of thousands of subscribers and a great cost per thousand, but if that magazine is Macho Man Weekly, it is unlikely to do you much good. There might well be some Macho Men who also make dresses, but probably not many.

A little common sense can go a long way. Ask yourself who the likely reader of your book is going to be. Don't say "everyone," because that isn't going to happen. I write cozy mysteries. So, an ad for my cozy mystery in a magazine geared toward World of Warcraft gamers is unlikely to be well received. However, an ad in a magazine that publishes who-dun-it short stories would.

Read the website/magazine. Look at the ads. If possible get back issues and see which ads have been running for some time. People wouldn't keep running their ad in a publication if it wasn't working. Are they for books similar to yours in terms of content or genre? If so, then that's probably a good place to advertise. If not, then go elsewhere.

Support Services


Sometimes you will find an advertising venue that has a great price, a good reach and the right demographics, but they don't provide much in the way of support. Are you comfortable creating your own ad? Do you know how to use Photoshop or some similar program to create a 200X300 pixel RGB 300 dpi resolution image. Do you know what that is? If you are buying radio or TV, can you produce your own commercial? Probably not. Will they provide these services as part of the price of the ad? Will you have to pay extra for it? Will they do it at all?

Other support services might include: analytics on your ad, click through counts, copywriting help, stock images, voice over, inclusion in other media like a radio station newsletter or a TV station website.

They say it pays to advertise. The truth is you pay to advertise. If you pay attention to these aspects of advertising, you can get more "bang for your buck."

Is Blogging Necessary?

Photo Credit kpwerker
I admit that I have a love-hate relationship with blogging. I've done it inconsistently for years. I know that to be "successful" at blogging you have to do it on a regular basis. However, I find that hard to do. Possibly, it's because I'm not the sort of person who just blogs to be blogging or to share my life. I treat blogging more like writing a column or an article. Regardless, I am not a "consistent" blogger. 

Why am I telling you this? Well, it's because there is a belief that ALL writers MUST blog. Some publishing companies require their authors to blog regularly. There is an assumption that blogging is a major part of marketing success for the writer. 

Recently, though, some writers are challenging the popular wisdom. A recent article by L.L. Barkat (ironically published in a blog) contends that experienced writers should stop blogging. Barkat argues that the impact on sales is so low that it is pretty useless as a marketing tool. 

In this, I have to agree. Think about the time involved. This post will take at least a half hour to write, possibly an hour. I'll probably want to find some sort of graphic and maybe tweak a few things before posting. Although, I admit that I do only very basic editing for these. In an hour, I can write 1500 words on a novel, write the copy for a web page for a client, hit a half dozen social media sites with a few thousand followers. Meanwhile, on a good day, my blog will draw a couple of hundred readers. 

In advertising, we talk about cost per thousand for advertising. Considering that my base pay is $25 an hour, even if I get 250 readers, that's a CPM of $100. Hardly a bargain. Okay, if I spent more time I might build up that readership, but again that's time spent marketing that I am not being paid for. The increase in readership will likely cost me the same CPM because I will need to spend more time promoting the blog. 

Does this mean a blog is useless for writers? Far from it. Even Barkatt notes "No. I encourage new bloggers, just the way I always have. It’s an excellent way to find expression, discipline, and experience."

Of course  you can do the same thing in other ways. Editing a church or club newsletter, writing a column in a local newspaper, writing for a website or ezine. Even journaling can develop those skills without the angst of feeling like a failure if no one comments. 

(Note: If you do blog, do not judge your success or failure by the number of comments you receive. Only a small number of people reading a blog will comment. One to two percent is a good response. Readership and interaction are quite different critters. Some who interact don't read as closely as some who do not.) 

For the nonfiction writer, blogging probably is more useful promotionally than for fiction writers. A popular blog can establish the writer as an expert in his or her field. However, the blog posts must contain useful information that readers can apply to their lives, hobbies, businesses or families. But this is a different type of animal than much blogging that focuses on providing personal insights into the writer's life, reviews of books the author likes or even interviews with other authors. This type of blog is more like a series of how-to or journalistic articles that explain or instruct the reader in some way. 

A final value of blogging is that of personal expression. So much of what we do as writers is filtered through the lenses of someone else - an editor, client, reviewer or reader. In a blog post, you can be yourself. Once, you forget about the idea of the blog being this killer piece of marketing, and accept it as a place for personal expression, you can use it to get out all those things that don't really have a market anywhere else. 

So, does an author NEED a blog? No. Can a writer benefit from a blog? Yes, but it depends on the writer, the writing and the expectations that writer brings to blogging. 

I don't know when I'll post another blog post. I enjoy writing them, but I do have paying work to do. I have a small readership, I trust you enjoy these little missives when I write them. I'll keep blogging on my terms when, and only when, I have something to say and not out of any sense of authorial obligation. I hope you will do the same.

Of Writers, Rules and Insanity

[I posted this on an email loop the other day and got a lot of good responses. One person even created a meme out of one of the quotes I included here. I hope you enjoy it.]

Kristen Stieffel surprised me with this on Facebook
Someone mentioned in a post here the old saying about insanity as being defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. They also noted that when they tried something different, that was more in line with their own life situation, it worked for them. 

As writers, we are inundated by suggestions masquerading as "rules." A writer finds something that works for them and suddenly it's the "one and only" way to do things. I remember reading a book by a woman pontificating about the way to create a plot outline. It had to be detailed. Each scene worked out in advance and following a certain pattern. The irony of that was that the only book I could find written by this woman was the book on writing novels. She had never actually written one herself. In fact, aside from a couple of articles in literary magazines and the book on novel writing, she had published almost nothing. 

Nevertheless, she, like many other writers and teachers, stood ready to tell you that she had the exclusive insight on how to write a novel. The fact that many successful professional novelists did not follow her approach was irrelevant. They broke her "rules" for novel writing. 

These "rules" multiply like toadstools after a rain storm (and can be just as poisonous to the writer's creativity.) One writer will tell you that you must write in the morning. Another knows for a fact that night time is correct. One says you must file everything neatly and clean your desk because a clean and orderly desk is a clean and orderly mind. Another will tell you that constant cleaning is just a way to avoid writing and that a cluttered desk shows you are really working. 

You must use Scrivener. No, you need to do everything on a plain text word processor. No, MS-Word is the industry standard so you should compose on that program. 

When it comes to plotting, there is no end to the ideas - snowflakes, wagon wheels, heroes journey, scale the mountain, three-act and five-act designs. Seat of the pants vs. Detailed plotting. Each have their champions and success stories. 

So, who's right? They all are. Then who's wrong? They all are. 

The creative process is different for each of us. Some of us work well in the morning. Others do better at night. I don't know if I'm a morning person or a night person since my best time is from about 1 - 4 a.m. That's technically morning, but, since I hadn't gone to bed, I guess it is still night. However for me to tell you that you should work those hours would be ridiculous. 

Ask yourself, when are you at your peak during the day. Not when should you be at your peak. Set aside what "normal" is for the rest of the world. You're a writer. The "normal" ship sailed without you long ago. Listen to your own biological clock. 

Some people need absolute quiet. Others work well with music. Others can plop themselves down in the middle of chaos. Which are you? I like either quiet or "white noise" like in a library, coffee shop, or someplace like that. With music light classical, Baroque or "ambient" sounds work best for me. Singing makes me want to sing along. 

Some will tell you to disable all the social networking alerts. If they distract you so much that you can't work, that's a good idea. For me, being alone most of the time, it's kind of nice to know there are other people out there online at the same time as me. I glance up, smile and get back to work. 

Some writers will tell you that you need to set aside at least an hour a day or write "X" number of words. They will tell you that this must be at the same time each day. This is good advice if it works for you. There is value to a routine. There's a good deal of evidence to support that idea for most people, but "most" people is not the same as "all" people. 

Also, for some of us, writing an hour straight through is just not practical either because of health issues (like my aching back telling me right now to finish this missive and go lay down) or time constraints. 

Think about your own schedule. What will work for you? When you write for a long time do you keep your energy all the way through or do you find yourself dragging during the last 30 minutes or so. If the latter, then maybe two 30 minute writing sessions may work better for you than a full hour all at once. Or not. 

The point is. Listen to everyone, but make your decisions based on how God designed you. 

google nexus 4 review



Even though I am an iPhone user and have been since the first generation iPhone was announced by the late Steve Jobs back in 2007, I’ve tried to keep an open mind about viable alternatives. I’ll be honest: I’ve been tempted to use an Android device. Several times. In fact, my first encounter with Android OS was on a Samsung Galaxy S2, which I purchased shortly after we gave one away in September 2011. Truthfully, the experience was so unpleasant that I had to switch back to my iPhone 4 after a few days.
Two years later, I compared a Nexus 7 against my iPad mini and immediately, the improvements and refinements to the operating system were prominent, I figured that I could finally succumb to using an Android device after all these years with iOS. So when the opportunity to review the Nexus 4 presented itself, I leaped at the chance. We’ll be giving this review unit away, so stick around if you want it!

Introduction to the Nexus 4


The Nexus 4, according to my colleague Erez Zukerman, can be described as a unicorn running Android. I suppose he meant that the combination of LG-quality hardware and vanilla Android OS makes the Nexus 4 so desirable and yet, it’s almost impossible to get hold of. In fact, the Nexus 4 was in short supply worldwide ever since it was launched. Generally, it was not an easy phone to come by for the past few months. Today, things are looking better. Units have shipped out to the new owners and orders are being fulfilled in about 10 days.

If you do want one, your best bet is probably to place an order from Google Play Store. The Nexus 4 comes in 2 configurations: 8 or 16 GB; and is priced reasonably at $299 and $349 respectively, unlocked. I know what you’re thinking: 16 GB in a modern day smartphone just doesn’t seem enough, does it? 8 GB is downright laughable. And it doesn’t have a microSD expansion slot, either. However, there are a couple of nifty features that help alleviate this particular issue of space, which I will touch on later in this review.

The only thing missing from the Nexus 4, besides sufficient storage, is an LTE radio.
The Nexus 4 is quite an advanced smartphone for its price. It has a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor running vanilla Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, with 2GB of RAM; a beautiful 4.7-inch True HD IPS PLUS display with a resolution of 1,280 x 768 pixels which packs 320 pixels per inch. Camera-wise, this beast features a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, and an 8 MP camera at the rear. Other trickeries include a multitude of sensors i.e. accelerometer, compass, ambient light, gyroscope, barometer; GPS, wireless charging, Miracast wireless display, and NFC.
The only thing missing from the Nexus 4, besides sufficient storage, is an LTE radio. For those accustomed to LTE connectivity speeds, this will undeniably be an issue; probably not so much if you haven’t used an LTE-capable phone before. But the real question here is: why wasn’t it included? The Nexus 4 could have easily been the best smartphone ever made in recent times, if only it had supported LTE. If this is as much of a deal-breaker for you as it is for me, then you might want to check out the LG Optimus G — it’s essentially the same phone but includes an LTE radio, and it features a microSD expansion slot as well.

Design and Initial Impressions

The Nexus 4 has a solid yet elegant feel contributed by the sheets of Corning Gorilla Glass 2 on the front and rear, softened by the device’s curves. At 139 grams, it’s a hair heavier than the iPhone 5 (112 grams) but that’s reasonable, considering that the Nexus 4 is quite a bit larger. The glass protecting the 4.7-inch True HD IPS PLUS display tapers off on the left and right edges, and swiping feels more natural due of this.

Overall, the device looks and feels very well built. Personally, I gauge the quality of a phone’s make by how well it holds up without a case. As for the Nexus 4, if you’re careful, it does rather nicely. The rear Gorilla Glass is very resistant to scratches, and there are very few dust-trapping gaps. The chrome and soft rubber-coated side lining may get a few scuffs over time, but that’s perfectly normal. If you’re pedantic about that, I reckon you should get a bumper case.
However, I did notice that the rear Gorilla Glass panel is quite slippery. Whenever possible, avoid placing the Nexus 4 on smooth, uneven surfaces; or it will slip right off and hit the floor. This is the reason for many reported instances of Gorilla Glass shattering.

Other than that, the usual suspects i.e. volume control, headphone jack, micro SIM tray are basically where you’d expect to find them. Following in the iPhone’s footsteps, the Nexus 4 doesn’t have a removable rear panel, hence the micro SIM card has to be placed on to a tray which slots into the side of the device. Google provides a micro SIM tray remover tool, which is ever so slightly smaller than the iPhone’s — if you happen to lose it, a pin would do just fine (unlike the iPhone, paper clips won’t fit).

As it happens, I have a minor gripe about the power button, which is located on the right side of the device. This is the only button which is able to wake the Nexus 4; and because of where it’s placed, it becomes impossible to wake the device with one finger when it’s lying flat on a table — something I’ve become accustomed to on my iPhone. Like I said, it’s a minor gripe.

A more significant complaint would be the incomprehensible placement of the speaker — which is on the rear aspect of the phone. It is quite easily muted either by holding the Nexus 4 with my left hand, or by placing it on a table. When this happens, there is a moderate decrease in volume and audio clarity. The speaker itself, when unobstructed, produces reasonably clear and loud audio.

Initial Use

To me, the most impressive Android feature I’ve come across is automatic backup and restore. In essence, Google backs up my app data and other settings and restores it to any Android device I may own. In my experience, the process, unlike iCloud, is quite seamless. After powering on the Nexus 4, the Android operating system automatically downloads previously installed applications from Google Play Store, making the phone instantly useable. Contacts were immediately retrieved from Google Contacts, as were photos from Google+ Photos. And since I use Chrome as my desktop browser, bookmarks and passwords were instantly synced as well. The fact that I was previously an iPhone user didn’t quite seem to matter — Android 4.2 Jelly Bean makes new users feel at home.Since most of my vital data was retrieved from the cloud, and with the automated backup process, there wasn’t really any reason to sync the Nexus 4 with my iMac. If you haven’t already realised, the Nexus 4 aims to be completely wireless, hence the wireless charging support and NFC. If you do need to retrieve files from your desktop, use Dropbox. In fact, Dropbox is so tightly integrated with Android it’s amazingly impressive; and more than makes up for the lack of internal storage space.
Transitioning from an iPhone 5 with a 4-inch Retina Display, to the Nexus 4 with its beautiful 4.7-inch True HD IPS PLUS display was like a breath of fresh air, purely due to its size — both displays have roughly the same pixel density. The Nexus 4 may look much wider, but it’s still quite comfortable to hold. Plus, the rubber-coated side lining provides the needed extra grip. The additional screen estate helps where it counts: browsing, reading emails, enjoying photos and watching videos, especially in 720p HD.

Living with the Nexus 4

Unfortunately, large 4.7-inch screen is both a blessing and a curse. Even with its brightness level set at 50%, it draws a considerable amount of power. With careful use, I managed to go just over a day without charging. Generally, battery performance was rather disappointing, albeit expected of the Nexus 4′s a non-removable 3.8 V, 2100 mAh rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery. Like most smartphones, it needs daily recharging in order to operate optimally.
I’ve also noticed that the device tends to heat up after a bit of activity requiring mobile data connectivity, particular around the earpiece. And as iFixit has illustrated with their teardown of the Nexus 4, this area plays host to the majority of vital components, including the 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and Qualcomm MDM9215M 4G GSM/UMTS/LTE modem.

Camera woes

I wanted to love the 8 megapixel camera in the Nexus 4, I really did. But the native camera application let me down, hard. Even though it is capable of taking panoramas and photo spheres out of the box, image quality was below par; and its extremely fickle autofocus was nothing less than annoying (issue also reported on the XDA Developers forum). While it may not be immediately evident, most of the photos I took with the Nexus 4 turned out to be out of focus. I realised it only after photographing a few receipts in Expensify, a habit which I’ve cultivated for nearly 2 years on my iPhone.
Switching the camera to panorama mode reduces its resolution, resulting in a 2448 x 584 pixel image. To give you an example of the image quality, here’s an image of Aldinga Beach in South Australia, taken with the Nexus 4:
The image below was taken with my iPhone 5, which had to be resized because the original panaroma was 8160 x 2518 pixels:




Building a Platform through Publishing

Since my last several posts have dealt with self-publishing, you may think I have no interest in traditional publishing. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have some future projects in mind that I would love to have the support of a larger traditional publisher. By that I mean one that would give me an advance against royalties in four figures or above, editing and design support, and some effective paid marketing.

So, why not chuck the whole self-publishing bit and spend my time sending out queries to agents (that type of publisher doesn't take queries or unsolicited manuscripts) and writing the great novel that they will just adore? One simple reason: It ain't gonna happen!

Sure when I was in high school, I believed the typical fairy tale you see in the movies of the novice who writes a novel that gets accepted by a major publisher and within a few weeks is on the bestseller list. However, that's just not likely to happen. Publishers, especially large publishers, don't like risking a lot of money on an unproven product. That is why, agents and publishers alike today ask the question that stops many authors dead in their tracks: "What's your platform?"

In a previous post we talked about the importance of platforms. The platform is a group of people that you can influence to buy your book. That can include your circle of family and friends, colleagues at work, social media contacts and any type of public venues that  you work in or through. For instance, a motivational speaker who holds 30 or so workshops a year with 200 or more people per workshop has a platform of 6000 people a year.

However, most of us don't have that type of a platform. So, the other question, they might ask is about your track record as a writer. Of course, this is the old Catch-22. You need to be published to have a track record, but you find it hard to get published if you don't have a track record.

Indie publishing can not only help you make money in the short term and hone your writing skills, it can also be your key to building a platform.

I did a quick check the other day. Since the first of the year, I've had 5800 books downloaded from Kindle. Some of those are free promotions. About a third are actual sales. I figure about 1000 or so downloaded more than one of my books. That's bigger than my social media contacts or my personal friends list by a long shot. It is also my platform.

Since they are buying more than one book by me, that means that they are likely to buy more. At this point, I wouldn't consider that platform large enough to impress an agent. However, in a few months, I'm hoping to grow it to 10,000 downloads and 2000 or more repeat buyers. That is something I can bring to the table in negotiating with a larger publisher.

But Kindle publishing or other book self-publishing venues are not the only sources for building a following by publishing. Another is through blogging. As you know, I'm a bit inconsistent in my blogging. However, many authors blog regularly and have a core of followers who look forward to each post.

Setting up a web site with dynamic content that you change frequently that deals with a topic of interest to people is another way to build a platform. If you write science fiction stories, having a website that posts news of science fiction literature, video and movies can help establish you as a science fiction expert. The traffic to that website becomes your platform.

If you want to break into the big leagues, you have to bring your fan base with you. No, it isn't fair, but that's the reality of today's publishing world. Fortunately, there are many ways to build that platform.

How Direct to Reader Publishing is Empowering Authors


I was thinking the other day about possibly next year finding an agent to see if I could land a decent contract with a larger publisher. I put out a request for input on another list. As I was writing, I was making 'demands.' The agent would have to have a good track record. I would want to see a list of books s/he had recently placed and with what publishers. I would want a list of references. Then I was thinking about the publishing deal. I would need an advance equivalent to what I would likely make from selling indie for at least a year (the average time it takes for a book to reach market traditionally). I would need more than the standard 10% royalty, some input over pricing, and access to all the marketing tools on Amazon. I would also need monthly sales reports so I could adjust marketing to the sales.

Then I stopped and said, "Where's Terri Main and what have you done with her?" This is not the same woman who for 40 years has went hat in hand to publishers taking whatever contract or payment they offered. What made the difference? Quite simply, I don't need them anymore.
When I started doing some limited self-publishing last year, I was thinking primarily of short works, Bible studies, writing guides, etc. that would give me a little extra income. I was focusing on the types of writing for which there exists no market outside of electronic self-publishing. I was pleasantly surprised by the results. Okay, stunned is more accurate. I kept adding more. But I never thought about taking long works like novels and full length nonfiction as indie works. After all, I was a "serious writer." It's okay to play around with self-publishing small things, but books, to be recognized as a writer you "need" a publisher. And I had one, so that was where I was sending my next novel.

Then came the bad news. As a retired college instructor, I was supplementing my income with some part-time teaching. My position was cut. I needed to replace that income. I had three novels in various stages of production, but it took a year from acceptance to publication of my last novel and I only sold 52 copies in two years. Maybe I wasn't even that good. Besides, fiction is a hard sell. I was being told, it takes several books for you to build up a following. Maybe you need to do another blog tour.

I had done everything "right." Got a publisher. Did the blog interviews. Sent out review copies. I'm not exactly sure what my publisher did other than edit, format and distribute the books through the various online venues. No advertising. Marketing was basically up to me. Don't get me wrong, I don't feel cheated or anything. They treated me well, but I was under the gun. I couldn't wait 12-18 months to see a book published that would only sell a handful of copies.

So, I published my next novels on my own and in a few weeks sold more copies than I did in two years with my publisher. I started getting positive reviews on Amazon and people emailing asking about when the next book would be out. And I was getting paid every month (60 days after the sale) instead of once a quarter. Of course, I had to do the formatting and editing and marketing myself. But I was already doing most of the marketing already, but without access to the very powerful marketing tools you have available in Amazon (Note: I discuss these tools in greater depth in my book Point of Sale)

Suddenly, I was enjoying a modest popularity for my books. They were selling a few copies every day instead of one or two a month. At this point, I'm doing pretty well, but I notice that when I talk about this, there is a type of backlash from a lot of traditionally published authors and especially from some who are strongly associated with agents and publishers.

This brings me to the crux of this post. The technology that has made self-publishing possible is what sociologists call a "disruptive" technology. It doesn't just enhance the status quo. It changes it entirely. It's like the automobile, the steam engine and the internet. Ebook and Publish On Demand technologies are reducing the power of the traditional publishing industry and it's gatekeepers.

Authors don't need publishers just to get their books in front of the public. They don't need them to get them into bookstores. The biggest bookstore that ever existed - Amazon.com - is available to anyone who wants to publish there. And indie published books can sit right next to traditionally published ones competing on an level playing field. The reader doesn't know or care if the book was published by a Big Name publisher or by a small publisher or by the author. The reader just checks out the sample and if s/he likes it clicks the button and it's downloaded into their reading device.

And the author gets 35-70 percent of the sale compared to 10-15 percent from a traditional publisher. S/he can also adjust the price point personally to maximize sales and profits.

The author doesn't need an agent to act as an intermediary between the author and publisher, who in turn provided access to the reader.

So, what does this mean. Does it mean the days of traditional publishing are numbered. Not by a long shot. For one thing, indie publishing is hard work. You have to do everything yourself if you hope to get any profit. That means writing, editing, formatting and marketing. You can, of course, outsource this stuff, but that can seriously cut into your profits. And if you mess up on the editing and formatting, the grammar Nazis will come out of the woodwork and slam your novel with one-star reviews. It may be a faster way to publication, but it is also harder.

What it does mean, though, is that the Author, even if s/he has no intention of self publishing, is empowered in a way they never have been. Since they no longer need a Patron or publisher to get their book to market for almost no money, an accomplished writing with some credentials can negotiate a better deal. S/he can say to a publisher, if you want to publish this book, here are a few things I need. Obviously, they need to be reasonable demands and open to negotiation, but the author knows s/he has self-publishing to fall back on which can produce as good if not better sales than traditional at a higher royalty. The publishers know this as well. And when it comes to talking to an agent, even a mid list writer can approach an agent not with hat in hand asking "Please take me on as a client. What do I have to do to get your representation?" The indie author with a significant sales record or the traditionally published author with a few titles under his or her belt can say, "Mr./Ms. Agent, what can you do for me if I sign with your agency?"

Of course, it goes without saying you have to have a good product and some sort of track record either in indie or traditional publishing. But many authors with good credentials still are bowing low in hopes of getting a book contract and are taking just about anything when they really don't need to anymore.

Whether or not you want to go indie, those who are doing so are putting you in a better position as an author to deal with traditional publishers. We are empowering all authors and not just indies.

Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2



The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is Samsung's attempt at a 10-inch high-end Android tablet, similarly the Nexus 10 is Google's equivalent. So it would make perfect sense to compare the two, right? That's just what we've done. Here's our Google Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comparison review.


Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Price

Both the Nexus 10 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 come with 16GB and 32GB storage options. The cheapest version of of each tablet are the 16GB models, which are priced at £238 for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and £319 for the Nexus 10. See also Google Nexus 10 vs Apple iPad 2 comparison review
When you move up to the 32 GB tablets, the price gap shortens a little to £339 for the Samsung tablet and £389 for the Google tablet.
Samsung also offers the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with 3G connectivity. You can expect to pay £349 for the 16GB 3G model and £439 for the 32GB 3G Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1's. The Google Nexus 10 is not 3G compatible.

It's worth nothing that the Nexus 10's price is subsidised by Google in an attempt to lock customers into spending money in it's Play store, so you really are getting a bargain in terms of its build/spec.

Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Dimensions

There's not an awful lot of difference between the Nexus 10 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 in terms of size and weight, to the naked eye it would be pretty hard to say which one is bigger/smaller for definite. We can tell you that the the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is in fact slightly smaller in terms of height and width than Google's tablet, but the Nexus 10 is significantly thinner. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is also 22g lighter.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 measures in at 256.7 x 175.3 x 9.7mm and weighs 581g. The Google Nexus 10 is 263.9 x 177.6 x 8.9mm and weighs 603g.

Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Screen

Perhaps the biggest difference between these two tablets is the screens, in this round the Nexus 10 wins hands down.
Both screens are jet over the 10-inch mark, but the real difference can be found by comparing the two's pixels per inch (ppi). The Nexus 10 has just over double the number of pixels, coming in at 300ppi next to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1's comparatively puny 149ppi.
For the screen nerds out there, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a 10.1" WXGA (1280x800) PLS TFT screen, and the Google Nexus 10 has a 10.05" (2560x1600) WQXGA Corning Gorilla Glass 2 screen. To be fair to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, it looked pretty good during use too, but if it's  pimple-showing clarity you're after then the Google Nexus 10 is the tablet for you here.

Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Processor and memory

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a a dual-core processor running at 1GHz, with 1GB RAM, yet the The Google Nexus 10 comes out on top here again, as it features a 1.7GHz Exynos 5250, a dual-core processor based on the ARM Cortex-A15 architecture, it also has 2GB of RAM.
When we put the two tablets through the GeekBench 2 test the results were as you'd expect with the Nexus 10's better processor enabling it to post the much better score of 2505 compared to the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1's 908. It is worth pointing out that the Nexus 10's GeekBench 2 score is the best we have seen from a tablet to date, even beating the iPad 4.

Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Storage

As mentioned above, both tablet are available to buy with 16GB or 32GB of storage. The only difference is that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a SD card which allows you to add an extra 32GB of expandable memory.

Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Camera

Using a tablet to take pictures is still a bit of a weird concept to us, nevertheless if your tablet has a camera you're going to want it to be a gooden. In the camera stakes it is yet another round for the more expensive Google Nexus 10, with it's 5Mp rear facing camera and 1.9Mp front facing camera, it also has a flash. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 however has no flash and an inferior 3Mp rear facing camera and a VGA front facing camera.
Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Connectivity

Both tablets come with 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as standard. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 can be bought with 3G connectivity too for a little more money, whereas the Nexus 10 doesn't offer this option. The Nexus 10 offers NFC (near field connectivity), while the The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 doesn't.

Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Software

Part of the reason Nexus hardware exists is so Google can sell Android devices that are free from manufacturers' clutter/bloatware, and that's exactly what the Nexus 10 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 demonstrate. The Nexus 10 is a slick experience, running the latest Android OS, Jelly Bean. The Galaxy Tab is running the previous version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes preinstalled with a whole host of what Samsung describes as "Value-added feasts" such as Samsung All Share Play and Samsung Kies. From our time with the two tablets, we can safely say that we prefer the Nexus' experience.

Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: Battery

The Nexus 10 has the better battery here too, with it's 9000mAh battery giving it the ability to run for a few days of moderate use. That said the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2's 7000mAh battery is no chump either and will easily last well over a day of similar use.
