Another phenomenal Aunty Acid to make our Monday a funny one. Thank you, Story Reading Ape, for your friendship and your humor!
Ari Meghlen provides us with an excellent post about the question when and how authors should re-brand! Thank you very much Ari!
Welcome back to another Monday Marketing post! Today I’ve been thinking about branding.
Now as writers, we don’t always remember to think about our branding but it is important. I’ve discussedbeing consistent in your branding, but what about the idea of rebranding?

Derek Haines informs us about a writing and editing tool each writer should use: ProWritingAid, a program that’s installed on my own computer for quite a while. Thank you for your excellent expertise and post, Derek!
Every writer would like to have an editor
In a perfect world, having an editor to rely on would be your preference. But in reality, we know that the cost of hiring a professional is beyond the reach of the majority of writers.
There are many self-help, short story and fiction writers using self-publishing today. But it is unrealistic to think that all of them can afford to pay for someone to help in the writing and editing process.
But there is an expectation from readers that when they buy a book or even read a blog post or online news article, that the texts will be perfect.
If you read some of the major newspapers online, you will know that even with professional copy and line editors, mistakes still occur.

David Wogahn on AuthorImprints provides us with an excellent article about the switch from CreateSpace to KDP print. Thank you for the insight David. We really appreciate it!
TL;DR: KDP Print ISBN options are the same as they were with CreateSpace. If you choose the free ISBN option, be aware of its limitations. As always with ISBNs, the devil is in the details and usage depends on your goals. Details below.
KDP Print ISBN options are the same as CreateSpace
- CreateSpace has offered 3 ISBN options since 2016 and those are:
A free ISBN. The name of your publishing imprint is CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.
- Purchase 1 ISBN for $99 in the name of your imprint. CreateSpace (and KDP Print) are authorized resellers of ISBNs (as is IngramSpark). This is a discounted price from the usual $125 if you buy direct from Bowker’s MyIdentifiers
- Use your own ISBN.

Let’s hear what Master Seumas Gallacher has to say to a good killing! Thank you for a great blog post, Seumas!
…we Scots are supposedly derived from martial tribes… we can even put our accent to battle when required… especially the Docklands Govan, Glasgow version… but underneath, we are truly a gentle race… once, as a young lad of eight years, I inadvertently killed a small vole on a farm near where the family was on holiday… and I cried over that for most of that day… the Braveheart image portrayed as the norm for we Celts is true when we are riled, but in our restive state, peace reigns supreme… comes now my emergence as a writer of crime fiction… and all sorts of savagery pokes its head out… …at the last count in my Jack Calderseries, I reckon upward of a couple of dozen characters have met their various demises, ghastly and otherwise… as an aside, I am constantly amazed at the ingenuity employed by fellow scribes who…
