Scribbulations is run by Ed Charlton who grew up in England and currently lives in a former colony. After many years toiling in corporate data systems he branched out into writing and, subsequently, to providing publishing services to independent authors through his company Scribbulations, LLC. Ed owes a debt of gratitude to all in The Write Group based at the Montclair Public Library in Montclair, NJ. He is a member of the Science Fiction Association of Bergen County and the founder of The Write Group: Kennett Square, PA. Ed’s work is often about humans meeting aliens. If that means assuming something about the technology of faster-than-light travel, that’s okay. If it means poking fun at human frailty, so much the better… Currently in the works are the sequel(s) to The Problem with Uncle Teddy’s Memoir and a new sci-fi serial – an open ended series in the tradition of Flash Gordon but with Ed’s characteristic rye humor. He has a reputation for asking, in the middle of long BBC dramas, “When do the aliens land?”

Mission: To give authors an even break.

The Four Bios Every Author Needs | The Digital Reader

Good advice about branding yourself as an author.

If you Google author bios you will find a million different articles, each with their own recommendation. Be short and too the point. Use the third person. Simply say who you are, and give your publishing credit. Be formulaic. A lot of this advice is good, but I also think it is incomplete. I recent...

Saint John's Ambulatory by Ed Charlton

Publishing is more art than science. For example, when using Ingram's publishing arm Spark, one can create a paperback and an eBook edition at the same time. This is wonderful. Part of the process at Spark is to enter the "Publication Date."Now, even those not involved with publishing can make a fair guess as to the meaning of this term. [ 66 more words ]

RIP CreateSpace | Scribbulations

Amazon is combining CreateSpace and KDP. I know several authors who rely on CreateSpace. Perhaps it will work out for the best, but the fear, as always with Amazon, is that it will end up with more money flowing their way and less to the authors. For those who are worried, here is what they are saying.

An Author's Lament | Scribbulations

I was selling books at an event last weekend. One of the questions I like to ask people (as they try and get past my table without making eye contact) is "What kind of books do you like to read?" What has become of the world when so many answer "I don't read books"?

To all the authors out there. You need to read this.

Createspace is rumored to be closing soon – meaning all users will be forced to transition to KDP Print (or use an alternative service). I decided to get ahead of the move to scout out any potential issues, and there are a few for you to watch out for – meaning, somewhat paradoxically, that you may wish to make the leap sooner rather than later.

This is good. But it’s very conventional.
In some sci-fi one of the “rules” is that the story must be based on some scientific “thingy” without which there would be no story. For the truly character-driven stories, one could ask “What’s the character trait/experience without which there would be no story?”

Do you treat your characters like imaginary friends and talk to them? Hey, whatever works for you!
