Wildfires Taking Toll on Booksellers, Publishers

This is a ROUGH time! We still need to take care of each other in our industry, more than ever. https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/publisher-news/article/84325-wildfires-taking-toll-on-booksellers-publishers.html

As wildfires spread across the West, Oregon's Blackstone Publishing has started a GoFundMe campaign in support of eight employees who have lost their homes, while Binc begins to aid booksellers in need.

QUIZ: Which Character from The Great Gatsby Matches Your Personality? | The SparkNotes Blog

Zodiac signs are out. Myers-Briggs personality types? Also out. The only thing that matters is whether you're a Gatsby, a Nick, a Daisy, a Jordan, a Myrtle, a Tom, or that one drunk guy who was hanging out in Gatsby's library.

Should That Word Have a Hyphen?

As they work, editors spend a lot of time looking things up in style guides and dictionaries. (No, we haven't memorized every single rule and spelling, though there are plenty of those in our mind too.) One of the things we end up looking up the most is compounds--should this be open? Closed? Hyphenated? Sometimes it seems there is no rhyme or reason, although it may help you to know that many words that begin with prefixes, like non-, anti-, and trans-, do NOT take hypens.

Here's a little blurb from Merriam-Webster Dictionary addressing this. And they get kudos for the final paragraph of self-deprecating humor. https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/hyphen-rules-open-closed-compound-words

To this day, I swear that my very lawful and well-behaved editing professor was responsible for the graffiti on a McDonald's billboard that changed the message from an ungrammatical "I have a fresh cracked egg" to the much more clear "I have crack."

We love this! Thank you, Bookshop Santa Cruz!

Like so many others, Bookshop has been thinking about how we can best support our community through this crisis. Bookshop Santa Cruz is directing our KEEP KIDS READING fundraising efforts toward young readers affected by the wildfires in our community. Funds donated will be used to buy books for children who lost their homes and belongings in the fires. Bookshop will coordinate with local public school librarians to identify the families in need and to construct libraries to replace cherished titles. Books will be bought at a discount to ensure that the funds will go farther. You can read more and DONATE HERE: https://www.bookshopsantacruz.com/keep-kids-reading-fundraiser

We have donated over 10 boxes of books, games, and activity books to adults and children at various evacuation centers in coordination with the Red Cross. We are putting together additional donation boxes every day to continue to supply these comforts to families who have been displaced.

If you are interested in providing more immediate emergency assistance to fire victims, please consider also donating to the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County Fire Response Fund HERE: https://www.cfscc.org/updates/fire-response-fund

THANK YOU!

Petition — Save Multnomah County Library Staff

Multnomah County Libraries are considering laying off staff next week, but there's plenty of work to be done in a safe capacity. Please consider signing this petition to help Portland's librarians keep their jobs. The book world thanks you!

Act now to support library staff and services.  Multnomah County Library is NOT facing a budget crisis.  Cuts to staff means cuts to services.  Layoffs are short-sighted, and hurt our community at a time when the library is needed more than ever.

Thank you Ali—hugely enjoyed your profoundly helpful Hippocamp 2019 workshop on three-dimensional villains.
I recently used your "meditation on description" instructional video (love the Cron reference, btw!) with my online students. I wanted to share an equally brief, pointed instructional video of my own, that might be of interest to your crew. It's directed toward tightening effectiveness in flash fiction, but the 5 tips apply equally to flash nonfiction, scenes, flashbacks, etc. Hope it's useful!
