Link of the Week – 2EPUB

June 10, 2014

th_ebook-readersFree. We like free, don’t we?

Formatting. We hate formatting, don’t we?

I stumbled across this site that is a free (we like) ebook format converter – for us – for free. Did I mention free formatting?   Disclaimer: I haven’t tried it myself, but it seems easy enough.

Check out 2EPUB and see if it’s right for you.

Link Of The Week

Good morning Musetrackers! We’ve found some goodies for you. One is a tool and the other is a wonderful site full of information for writers. We hope you enjoy them and find them useful.

 

http://www.online-stopwatch.com Click on the “stopwatch” selection and you will be given a choice of a stopwatch or a count down timer. Either one is fantastic for doing some timed writing. It’s really big and there’s an alarm when your time’s up!

 

http://www.thebookdesigner.com/ This is a blog site run by a fellow who can help you with all aspects of self publishing. Besides being an avenue for his business, it’s very content rich on information that is pertinent to all writers. I’ve enjoyed getting his posts and have learned quite a bit.

 

 

Hope the holidays are wonderful and you’re still getting a little bit of writing time!


Link of the Week

I stumbled across today’s link and found it really cool. I hope you will think so , too.

Page 99 Test is a site where published and unpublished  authors anonymouslyshare one page of their work  for readers. And just like the title suggests, that page is page 99. Readers can then give the author a thumbs up or thumbs down, and rate your page on the likelihood they’d buy the book. There is even a box where the reader tells the author the reason for their rating. It’s a great way to get unbiased feedback.

As a reader, you can pick the genres you are most interested in. As an author, it’s fast and easy. Overall, it fun and, dare I say, addictive for both readers and writers.

Check it out!

Link of the Day (for lack of a better title)

August 9, 2011

Hey MuseTrackers.

Something new is afoot on the blog. We are going to offer you a killer link every week. Gems that we have happened upon that are too good to keep to ourselves. No, we’re not stingy here at MuseTracks. We want each and everyone of you to succeed in your endeavors. We’ll pass along links that will help with craft, marketing, research, or anything we think you might find of interest. Because we’re generous that way, see.

This week, I’m going to start off with a link  meant to make your social media life much easier. You may have heard of it, but I’m surprised by how many haven’t.

Tweetdeck is billed as a personal real-time browser connecting you to many of your social media favorites such as Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and LinkedIn, to name a few. Type in your status, comment on what others are up to, retweet, and more, all from one spot. You can even choose which media outlets you want your message to go. Pretty darn handy.

Have a look-see.
