Green-Light Your Book by Brooke Warner

This book, although now over 4 years old, is still helpful for indie authors. There's a lot of cheerleading - encouragement. The meatiest sections which I found the most helpful were chapters 5 and 6. Through her book, Ms. Warner has followed her own ...more

I, too, was drawn to this book, and it was even richer than I imagined it could be. An intricate, well-crafted tale which I would have enjoyed studying with a book club if I was in one. Wonderful story.

Printers' & Publishers' Devices in England & Scotland, 1485-1640 by Ronald Brunlees McKerrow

This is an excellent resource for those interested in this part of the history of English (and a little Scottish) book publishing. It is clear from the result that Mr. McKerrow put a great deal of effort into researching and compiling this reference ...more

I thought this book would have more business detail than it does. I can't say the stories about the authors and other friends was interesting, except where it gave glimpses into the business of publishing. Much of it seemed like shoulder-rubbing or n ...more

I really enjoyed this book, with some peeks into the publishing business as it was then. Both Cerf and Klopfer were interesting characters. I especially like the origins of Random House, and the desire both had at the start to have their own company ...more

Disappointing. Use of an editor recommended.

“One thing that I had loved in Paraguay was the ironic grass that showed the tip of its nose between the pavements of the capital, that slipped in on behalf of the invisible but ever-present virgin forest to see if man still held the town, if the hour had not come to send all those stones tumbling.

- from Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine St. Exupery (1939)”

Yann Martel
“These people fail to realize that it is on the inside that God must be defended, not on the outside. They should direct their anger at themselves. For evil in the open is but evil from within that has been let out. The main battlefield for good is not the open ground of the public arena but the small clearing of each heart.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Tim O'Brien
“They carried the sky. The whole atmosphere, they carried it, the humidity, the monsoons, the stink of fungus and decay, all of it, they carried gravity.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

Tim O'Brien
“They carried all they could bear, and then some, including a silent awe for the terrible power of the things they carried.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

Richard Bledsoe
“This is our moment in the mighty continuum of art and life. Real art knows no boundaries; it communicates across all times, across all cultures. Art is as much an aspect of our species as the opposable thumb, and just as prevalent.”
Richard Bledsoe, Remodern America: How the Renewal of the Arts Will Change the Course of Western Civilization
