    Authors Needed

    Jupitermedia is currently looking for authors to write articles on open source programming languages like Ruby, Rails, Python or Ruby on Rails. The articles would of course be paid and they would be publicized on most of our developer sites via RSS. If you are interested please contact me and we can discuss this further. Thanks for your time.

    Hi andr105 and thanks for your interest. Of course we always prefer someone with writing/programming experience. However if you are an experienced programmer then yes we would definitely consider your material. Thanks.

    There are real, tangible thrills in being a published book author: Your name on a book jacket. The privilege of having your words available to an audience of readers. The knowledge that you are stick-with-it-enough to have finished and published a book. But those who are publishing a book for the first time, or those who aspire to, might have unrealistic expectations of the experience. Here are six common misconceptions about being a published author--better to learn about them now than to be disappointed later!
    Thanks

    Hi..Not long ago, we published a summary of the statistics emanating from a Taleist results from their survey about self-publishers.

    Since then, a lot of criticism has been launched at the validity of the survey

    Here are some of the weaknesses identified

    It lumped in hybrid authors and self-published authors
    It did not pose the same questions to traditionally published authors
    It did not quantify what it meant to “Live from your book earnings”, leading some authors who answered the survey to be very surprised to find themselves lumped in the “Top Earners” category
    They will not release their data so that others can analyze
    The survey had only 1007 interviewees
    Michael J. Sullivan, author of the Riyria Revelations, is attempting to correct this situation with a survey of his own and need as many writers as possible -from all backgrounds, even aspiring writers, to add some data to the equation.
