The Community That Helps Each Other

For any of you who have been following along since the 'big bang' of FTA, you know that it was created to help authors with robust design techniques and non-gouging prices. Well, it's time to take it to the next level.

With the assistance of some friends - authors and industry professionals - we will be bringing you blog posts that discuss success, pitfalls, inspiration, and jargon with goals that include:

- Having a place where authors can come to learn about new or veteran authors and their climb to success
- Having a place where authors can learn about the industry as it sits today, pros and cons, both from authors and other industry professionals

and finally,

- Having a place where authors can get tips/tricks and other info apart from what FTA can offer them, both from authors and other industry professionals

We have a great variety of authors who have signed up already including veteran New York Times bestsellers, fresh-on-the-scene authors, and people in between, people in  audiobook creation, and in marketing/creative aspects. I'm also hopeful to land some guest bloggers from bookstores, review sites, and other transmedia venues.

I truly hope that you get a lot out of these blog posts. I've received a ton of great feedback from the participants so far with some really great answers to the questions. If you would like to see someone as a guest on the blog, please be sure to state their name in the comments below and where I can find them (website) - while I can't guarantee they will say yes the worst they can say is no. Go big! It will give me yet another goal to attain.

Before we say goodbyes, I would just like to wish everyone a very safe holiday this weekend, that being Memorial Day for you non-Americans. I hope you all take a moment to think about all of our brothers and sisters who have sacrificed their lives for ours from day-one of the inception of the USA. We will never approve of war, but we should always appreciate our heroes.

Thanks everyone. See you next week with our first post.
