The Big Bad Book Blog's Link Love

September 9, 2011

 In true book nerd fashion, we’ve rounded up our favorite publishing-related links of the week for you! Read on to uncover the best in books this week. If you want to know about these links sooner than Friday afternoon, follow us on Twitter—@GreenleafBookGr.


  • Got a Kindle? Got questions about the book you’re reading? Amazon’s new @author feature was covered by Media Bistro. Announced this week, @author connects readers with their favorite writers, allowing them to pose questions straight off of their Kindle or on Amazon’s page. Tim Ferriss and Susan Orlean are among the first authors to take the feature for a test-drive.
  • The current and future state of business books was discussed at Power to the Small Business. In the podcast, Jay Ehret chats with Todd Sattersten, co-author of 100 Best Business Books of All Time, about his predictions.
  • How can you ensure book launch success? Platform, zeitgeist and exposure, according to Indie Author. We would add great content and "mindshare" to the list.
  • Finally, in tribute to the 10th anniversary of September 11th this weekend, The Browser has an interview with Amy Waldman, author of The Submission, a new book being heralded as the most sincere account of that day. Waldman shared her list for the most effecting literature dedicated to the tragic event.
