New Joseph Campbell ebook: Oriental Mythology

Oriental Mythology
Just wanted to pass along an announcement from Joseph Campbell Foundation about the formal release of Masks of God: Oriental Mythology, the newest ebook in the Collected Works of Joseph Campbell! It’s a project that we’ve been working on for more than a year, and are pleased to see come to fruition.

The ebook, the first release in a digital edition of the Masks of God series, explores the evolution of the myths of the Middle East and Asia from the dawn of history up until modern times, looking at how they have changed from country to country and millennium to millennium, and how they’ve remained the same.

The ebook is currently available only on the foundation’s website, JCF.org, as a thank you gift for donations of $9.99 and greater. Continue reading New Joseph Campbell ebook: Oriental Mythology

Bright Idea of the Day: The Author's Voice

So, I started putting a post together recently with some resources for self-publishers. I came up with a wonderful overview about the process of self-publishing, Guy Kawasaki’s APE (Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur), Joel Friedlander’s excellent exploration of the process from a print designer’s perspective, A Self-Publisher’s Companion: Expert Advice for Authors Who Want to Publish, and Liz Castro’s fabulous introduction to creating ebooks, EPUB Straight to the Point.

Looking at that list, I thought, Huh, okay — all I need is a good introduction to producing your own audiobook.

Went to find it.

Couldn’t.

Well, I spoke with some friends at the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association, where the unofficial motto is, If you can’t find the book you want, write it yourself. Asked folks if they thought that I should write a guide to audiobook production.

They did.

So I think I am. I’m thinking of calling it The Author’s Voice: A Writers Guide to Recording and Producing Audiobooks.

What do you think?

Murder Comes to the Stillpoint

Death in a Fair Place
Death in a Fair Place by W. L. Taylor

Stillpoint Digital Press announces the publication of its first murder mystery, Death in a Fair Place by W. L. Taylor.

Set on the idyllic campus of a glossy prep school in Northern California, this fast-moving detective novel involves intrigue, scandal, and, of course, murder most foul — right on school grounds. When the head of the prestigious Pemberley Oaks School is found dead in the school’s memorial redwood grove, the list of suspects includes just about everyone with a connection to the school — faculty, staff, parents, and teachers. It is up to Detective Bill Felkin to dig past the privileged, sophisticated veneer and discover the truth.

Taylor, who worked in independent schools for many years, says about completing his first novel, “Being a fan of murder mysteries, the idea came to me to write a detective story that takes place on a private school campus. After I came up with the germ of the idea for the book seven years ago, I paid attention to the old adage — write about what you know — and that provided me with a wealth of material.”

Death in a Fair Place is now on sale at StillpointDigital.com, as well as Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and most other ebook outlets.
