Daisy is hopping like it’s World Carrot Day, because in celebration of Sam Diego Comic-Con 2015, Comic-Con Heroes: The Fans Who Make the Greatest Show on Earth is now free and in the public domain. Someone please pass the lettuce! From SDCC 2013, Joe Wilcox profiled 12 attendees, who represent the real stars of the show—not Hollywood types getting big media attention.
Comic-Con Heroes is free from Smashwords in the format of your choosing and also from Amazon. But there’s a big caveat attached to the Kindle Store, which won’t let us give away the book. We must charge at least 99 cents. For the exposure, JW wants to keep CCH at the store where it has been longest. But he may pull it in the near future. Daisy thumps that there’s no boubt a adout it. The book won’t remain at Kindle Store for long. Read More
Daisy is so mad, she turns to cranky cat for comfort—he is just as peeved. Prices changes are underway now. In July, Joe Wilcox lowered some prices in anticipation of Amazon Kindle Unlimited bringing more readers. For most titles that’s not the case. So he is raising prices on some titles and changing distribution for others.
Responsible Reporting: Field Guide for Bloggers, Journalists, and Other Online News Gatherers jumps from $3.99 to $7.99 and Comic-Con Heroes: The Fans Who Make the Greatest Show on Earth to $3.99 from 99 cents. As compensation, there will be a freebee day for both books before Christmas.
Most titles will resume distribution through Google Play and Smashwords around Jan. 14, 2015, after the current, exclusive Amazon 90-day period ends at Amazon.
Daisy hops around the office, stopping for the occasional thump. Joe Wilcox works on his first fiction book, which will have an unusual publishing schedule, and he intends to crowdsource the storyline from the fifth chapter onward.
He also plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign later in May. Read More
Daisy is hopping happy. On Friday, the first major update to Responsible Reporting: Field Guide for Bloggers, Journalists, and Other Online News Gatherers published to Amazon, Google Play, and Smashwords. The book now also sells for original list price of $9.99, unless discounted by the retailer.
The revisions mostly add or update content, particularly plucking gems from Pew Research Journalism Project report “State of the News Media 2014“.

The rabbit cannot contain her excitement as she romps around the publishing den. Two days ago, Pew Research Journalism Project released report “State of the News Media 2014“. Earlier this month, Daisy made a tough editorial decision. To publish Responsible Reporting: Field Guide for Bloggers, Journalists, and Other News Gatherers with year-old data. She reasoned we could update the book when the newer report released later in the month. It’s here!
Editing is underway now, and version 1.01 of the book will publish before end of the weekend. When that happens, the $7.99 sale price ends, and the regular $9.99 kicks in. So grab Responsible Reporting quick and save two bucks. You will get the update either way, but why pay more for it? The book is available from Amazon, Google Play, and Smashwords.
