Me and the pirates are tight… May 24, by Hugh Howey I love my readers. Really, I do. Even the ones with eye patches.
I was a general scallywag when I was younger. As I got older and started earning a paycheck.
I could always afford these things. What happened is that I got lazy. The pain in the ass of finding a keygen and dealing with the viruses that came with pirated games or software, at some point the thrill of getting something for free wore off and I just wanted to spend the money, own the thing legally, be able to install updates and all that, and above all: support the people who code and create art and are trying to afford daycare for their kids.
Writers Digest community leader Phil Sexton will reveal exclusive results from an all new deep-dive survey into the wants, needs and plans of hybrid authors -- those who have both published with a traditional publisher and self-published books. These authors compared to all others make the most money, have the biggest marketing platforms and have the savviest opinions about the publishing industry. As a matter of background, Sexton will also discuss the results from an earlier survey of all authors that show just how advanced hybrid authors are.
Three leading book-biz marketers will discuss how and why authors and publishers should engage more deeply with readers. Anne Kubek INscribe will focus on outbound marketing and social engagement. Just shoving the print page onto a digital screen isn't the answer to delivering compelling digital reading experiences. Particularly with illustrated fixed-page titles, designers need to think about how readers use digital, what they expect from digital and how they can take advantage of things they can't do in print.
This talk will showcase real-word examples of good and bad design elements and cover best practices for cooking, how-to, and other high-design segments of eBooks, focusing on how to achieve good results that work across devices and platforms.
In this discussion, we will talk to two prominent hybrid authors about their position in the industry, self-publishing, publishers and the next phase of author evolution. We will also analyze the results of a recent Digital Book World and Writer's Digest survey of hybrid authors. Noted EPUB expert and author Liz Castro will show how to create content that takes advantage of all the features that the latest platforms have to offer… while avoiding the pitfalls and inconsistencies.

As for the adventure quotient of this novel, it was very satisfactorily high. Yet, the action was paced so well, that the moments of introspection and character development could be savored equally well. And, as I said earlier, I could easily visualize most of the action sequences. Any question marks about the equipment that I might have had were cleared away either through my imagination, or by further reading. The worldbuilding in this novel was excellent.
I had no problem picturing a future Earth that wasn't overly different, and seeing the other worlds through the narrative. The depiction of the different alien civilizations was distinct, and was done with a respect that didn't pander to bigotry or racial insensitivities.
Although the various alien civilizations had their particularities, it was clear that stereotypes were not being established or relied upon.
As a person who is sensitive to the depiction of people in a way that isn't stereotypical or racially insensitive, that was very important to me.
The cast of secondary characters managed to become very important to me. Cole became my shelter, a shoulder to lean on, and a boon companion, as I read this story and saw him take this harrowing journey along with Molly.
Along the way, they meet friend and foe, and you feel their anguish and fears when the realization is made that not everyone can be trusted. Although this was Molly's story, and you never doubt her importance, Cole is also an intregral part of this novel, and I wouldn't have it any other way. This book is perfectly suitable for mid-to-older teens, but I would advise readers that there is quite a bit of violence, and some disturbing events do occur.
However, Mr. Howey does an excellent job of showing the consequences of violence, and how it affects the participants.
And the violent scenes are not done in any way that is offensive or gratuitous. Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue took me on an incredible journey. It kept me in suspense, made me laugh, made me cry, and gave me a sense of wonder at the beauty of the universe.
I was in awe that humans might be able to travel through galaxies and meet life on other planets. I felt a sense of excitement reading this story, that has yet to leave me.
But it also gave me something to think about. Like Molly, we humans tend to dream big, and life will knock some of the idealism out of us.
