BAIPA members are encouraged to submit posts for the BAIPA blog. Tell us about book signings, meet n’ greets at bookstores, book fairs, book conferences, tips about self-publishing, and experiences during the self-publishing process that would enlighten (or amuse!) BAIPA members. The usual length for a blog post is 250-350 words. Send items to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you are writing about an upcoming book signing or Meet & Greet, include the time and day of the event, the address, and the title and subject of your book. It is best to send your article to the blog editors at least two weeks before the event.
- Longer posts (possibly a 2-or-3-part article) might focus on the background of how a BAIPA author decided to write about a particular topic, what the writing process was like (easy/fun or challenging/hard), how the author found members of his or her team (publishing consultant, cover designer, layout designer, editor, proofreader, PR person, marketing advisor, etc.), and what a book signing and/or book tour is really like.
- Please include photos and/or images (for example, your book cover and headshot) if you have them, and links to events.
- Send your articles as Word documents (or, if very short articles, in the body of an email) to: email@example.com. Remember, you must be a BAIPA member to post on the blog.
Remember that Blog posts go out once a week in an e-mail blast on Sundays.
The BAIPA blog will become more lively and interesting as more BAIPA members contribute articles. Thanks for participating!
The BAIPA blog is managed and posted, edited and often written by Linda Jay and John Byrne Barry.
