My web site, Bookmarket.com, made the web news on November 18, 2005. Even Google picked up the news.

What did I do? Not much. Just added another useful website to my Top 101 Book Marketing sites.

Here's the news:

“The Freelance Writing Organization International now has the distinction of being named on BookMarket.com's Best Book Marketing Sites of the Year List (http://www.bookmarket.com/101bm.htm).”

Giving awards. Highlighting good web sites. Creating halls of fame. These are just a few of the things any web site can and should do if it wants to attract attention and visitors. These are some of the best ways to create link exchanges with other relevant web sites.

We offer the Independent Publishers Hall of Fame, the Self-Publishers Hall of Fame, and the Independent Book Publishers Best-selling Books Hall of Fame as well as our Top 101 web sites for book marketing, book printing, editorial and design, etc. Check them out at http://www.bookmarket.com/files.htm.


Do You Know How to Write?

“The reason why so few good books are written is that so few people who can write know anything.” — Walter Bagehot, economist and journalist

Personally, I think anyone who knows how to write well will always write something interesting, something worth reading.

I think the reason so few good books are written is that so many good books never get the notice they should. The good books are being written, but so many have not yet reached their audience.

There are clearly a lot of bad books being written, more now than ever, especially with the growth of self-publishing and POD printing where many books get published without any editing or selection. That doesn't make self-publishing or POD printing bad. But it does mean that anyone, no matter how bad a writer or how lacking in anything to say, can still get a book published.

Of course, it also means that some great stuff gets written and published that never would have reached the light of day. So I'll take all the bad stuff as long as the good stuff gets through.

My job is to help the good stuff get through.
