ePublishing Report   Blogs and RSS Publishing - the new XML Publishing Medium

Blogs and Really Simple Syndication, RSS,  are the new frontiers in electronic publishing. RSS is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing headlines and other Web content. XML is the language developed for eBook readers, such as the Microsoft Reader. RSS is a relatively new technology, which works by streaming content to your PC, where as traditionally you have had to pull content from the web, for example by clicking on a link, or doing something to get new information. Where as RSS pushes content from the web to your PC.

RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS, even the revision history of a book, for example. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS, and a news aggregator can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them.

Since Weblogs or Blogs are becoming increasingly popular on the web, I have started experimenting with a new Blog, which over the next six months, and beyond, will tell the inside story of the publication of my new book, 'Angels can Fly, a Modern Clown User Guide'. This blog is syndicated both in RSS, and a new related XML format called atom, so you can read it from the comfort of your newsreader, rather than surfing to the web page in your browser.

In May next year, Angels can Fly will be launched in NZ, and I will then embark on a world tour to promote the book, which I intend to document on my blog, including reviews, and inviting your reactions... because a blog is an interactive experience, and you are welcome to post comments in response to any post. Angels can Fly promises a mix of fiction, following the adventures of ten clown characters, some personal clown anecdotes, a total of 50 practical clown exercises, and some theory on the nature of modern clown. I have already posted an introduction, some anecdotes and exercises, on the Blog, which includes part of chapter one of the book, and also my mailout to festivals and libraries to participate in the 2005 promotional tour. 

Check out the blog at http://www.alanclay.com/blog.html and click on the 'add to My Yahoo' button, to syndicate the blog in RSS to your My Yahoo account, if you have one, and otherwise click the 'syndicate this site' link, to add the blog to your RSS newsfeeds. Those of you interested in publishing in eBook or POD formats, but unsure of the process, will find the postings on this blog provide a practical inside look at the process over the next few months. If you are interested you can also sign up to receive a free eBook copy of Angels can Fly in the MS Reader .lit format at: www.alanclay.com/ebook_list.htm

BookSurge launchs Australian POD operation

"With the slogan "real books ... real fast ... worldwide", BookSurge recently launched its Australian print-on-demand operation. BookSurge was started in 2000, and it already has operations in six countries outside the United States and plans to open two more soon. The company's catalog includes about 4,000 authors, and BookSurge also prints books under contract for a variety of other publishers. BookSurge will offer truly global, inventory-free book distribution. The Australian arm joins established distribution centres in the USA, Canada, UK, and the Netherlands, with Spain, Greece and Poland soon to follow. All orders are placed through a centralised database and the order is routed to the closest facility. BookSurge operates as a printer, a drop-ship facility for direct publisher fulfilment, a wholesale distributor and, potentially, as an online bookseller. With BookSurge, publishers can fulfil retail and wholesale book sales directly from their website while carrying zero inventory. BookSurge Australia has already conducted trials for Melbourne University Press, fulfilled orders for a number of small- and self-publishers and produced over 750 books for export to eight countries including India, the Philippines and South Africa. Amanda Finnis, MUP's managing editor said that 'MUP were interested in the idea of printing only the number of books the market demands and therefore reducing the overheads associated with warehousing stock. Print-on-demand also means we can respond very quickly to orders and we never have to take a book out of print just because we've run out of stock'. BookSurge, with its printing facilities located all over the world, offers more flexibility to the print-on-demand publishing model." Very best wishes, John Bullivant, Sydney-based Publishing Services Agent for BookSurge.

Because of the myriad numbers of hardware and software readers out there, it is important to adhere as closely as possible to ebook standards. The eBook Verifier tool currently supports the Open eBook standard (version 1.0, 1.0.1, and 1.2). We intend to support the forthcoming OpenReader specification when it is available. In addition, we are investigating support for Digital Talking Book / DAISY and the related NIMAS standard.

'Show and sell!', Australian Publishers and Authors Bookshow, NSW

"Invitation to 'Show and sell!', the 6th Australian Publishers and Authors Bookshow, on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 November 2004. The NSW Writers' Centre's Australian Publishers and Authors Bookshow, is a unique event, initiated by the Centre in 1999 to support local writers and local publishing in the face of the rapidly increasing globalisation of the Australian publishing industry. The Bookshow's 'show and sell' tables will be set up in the Double Room of the Centre and will showcase the work of participating Australian-owned publishers, small presses, niche publishers, self-published authors, and short-run and POD printers, among others. Writers, librarians, booksellers, publishers and literary organisations will be invited to the Bookshow along with the Centre's nearly 4,000 members. In previous years, the Bookshow weekend has attracted hundreds of visitors and book-buyers. This year, it will, for the first time, be held in conjunction with the nine-day Rozelle Festival, and so will pull in many people from the local community as well as visitors to the municipality. The great majority of stall holders in past years have been delighted with the sales they have achieved over the weekend. The Bookshow will also present a talks program (in the Board Room adjacent to the Double Room) featuring people in the writing and publishing industries, including publishers, booksellers, agents, distributors, publicists, editors, manuscript assessors, artists and illustrators, self-published writers and others. If you want to participate... You can hire a table for the weekend and/or book a time for your book launch." Cheers, Irina Dunn.

Summer Literary Seminars, Nairobi, Kenya 

Summer Literary Seminars (St. Petersburg, Russia; Nairobi, Kenya), one of the most prominent and vibrant international literary venues in the world, is pleased to announce the opening of enrollment into SLS/Kenya-04. The only program of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa, it will be held December 15-29 in Westlands - one of Nairobi's most attractive neighborhoods. The teaching faculty will include: Jeffery Renard Allen (fiction), Wanda Coleman (poetry), Arthur Flowers (lecturer: contemporary African-American literature), Josip Novakovich (non-fiction), and Binyavanga Wainaina (lecturer: contemporary African literature), as well as a number of leading Kenyan writers. In addition to the genre seminars (workshops) and the lecture series, the academic part of the program will feature faculty and student readings and regular roundtable discussions and meetings with local writers, poets, playwrights, and artists. Kenya, at present, is arguably the most "literature-centric" nation in all of anglophone Africa. Awakened into a whole new cultural paradigm by the demise of a two-plus decade-long suffocating political regime, it is now home to a steadily burgeoning generation of genuinely talented young writers. Illustrative of this is, for instance, the fact that the last two winners of the annual Caine Prize (sometimes referred to as "the African Booker"), the continent's singularly most prestigious literary award, were young Kenyans (Binyavanga Wainaina and Yvonne Owuor) - as was one of this year's two finalists (Parselelo Kantai). It would not be an exaggeration to say that if one has a keen interest in closely acquainting oneself with the the current literary scene in all of English-speaking Africa, one's best bet would be to book a flight to Nairobi, having first enrolled in the SLS-Kenya program. For detailed information, please visit the SLS-Kenya website." Find a link to the Summer Literary Seminars under Festivals and Conferences at: http://www.artmedia.com.au/links1.htm

Poem by Mary Rudge

Where Was Your Pen In The War?

Where was your pen in the war?
Poking politicians, thrusting poems
for their eyes that showed they had always
been blind - shoving blade-straight to heart pain,
puncture   blood out   blood in,   probe
where screams matter?

In every situation requiring justice-unafraid
you would pierce   slash   slice
ink runs out like a river   unsheathed thought
current flow   crevices of  brain   vein to
finger-grasp   channel of sheer nerve
carved deep with a sharp tool - make us
think again, act, move, someone move on
who'd ever think they could act that way,
pristine visible   do it   make possible?

On the horizon where you live I expected
ink eruption   covering the sky,
explosion of words flurrying up and out,
for thousands of directions, multiplied
by the millions who copy   making points
hitting marks.  The air page-blank, I went
to find where you were, your pen
stronger than sword, sharper than dagger,
sure cutting as scythe - poke fun, rapier wit.

Sweetheart, where when 9/11 Babel twin
towers all tragic came down, was your pen?
Where was your pen in the war, baby Poet
I love.  With that pen magnified giant club,
each letter hard rock stroke at Goliath bone
head   knock sense into the right, the left, too,
cutting past dross, through ignorance
clear a way.  A desperation brings me
the ability of cells to become a rose,
caterpillar transform to butterfly,
society transcend to peace
surpasses other purposes.  The poets
silence, absence, the real aid to evil,
mark of a traitor to life, to the world.

How angry I am, arrived
at your door, to see the note "gone fishing"
I expected to carry off a box of passion,
reams of paper ammunition, we needed you,
right writing hand, what right have you,
you bastard while the world burns
to just be down by the river
watching the light on its beautiful forever flow.

"To Artmedia, I am very interested in your publication which was sent to me by a friend. I am the Poet Laureate of the city of Alameda, which is a small island in the San Francisco Bay ( 4 miles wide, 7 miles long ). Although I have traveled to 5 continents by invitation presenting my poetry at global events, sadly I have never been to Australia, but I have wonderful memories of members of the Australian Aborigine dance troupe I met in Hong Kong when they were performing and I was speaking at poetry congress and we were staying in the same hotel. Now a new business a few blocks from my house has opened to sell New Zealand meat pies and other foods so I can taste this flavor." for poetry always, Mary Rudge. mailto:MaryRudge@aol.com

"Alan, I'm here in the USA, and I perform with a group, 3 Guys from Albany (NY) ...we're determined to perform in all the Albanys in the U.S. - there are 18 - it's taken some years, but we've been to 10 so far, 8 to go ... and we also noticed that there's an Albany in W. Australia, so who knows, perhaps through a connection via your group we'll find a way to get there. I've been thinking maybe we can tie in with the Perth Festival....we're performance poets . My website  features audio readings, where you can hear poems read by the poets who wrote them - full length readings and more." Charlie Rossiter.

"Northeastern NY Artist Stephen Mead has recently had an ebook published entitled "We Are More Than Our Wounds ". This book is available through New Age Dimensions.Com. Like Mr. Mead's other e books, this ebook is a combination of poetry and vivid artwork. Stephen Mead's unique book of original art and poetry titled, We Are More Than Our Wounds, is an evocative study of the human predicament told through images and text. Its aim is not only to show the universality of struggle, but that pain and conflict can also be a bridge towards healing. Each image of the heart depicted in this book serves as a graphic reminder of both individual frailty and mortality. That the heart is a muscle is not shied away from. Endurance, however, is the blood feeding the strength of this heart's chambers. Regeneration beyond scar tissue here is not only possible, but serves as a miraculous metaphor for empathy. It is only by recognizing the existence of our wounds that the responsibility of recovering from them can occur. "We Are More Than Our Wounds" ultimately celebrates this act as a means to both internal and global peace." Stephen Mead.

"Hi, I am looking for work as a proofreader I recently traveled to Korea, and attended a large international arts festival, as well as spending some time sightseeing.  While I was there, I encountered a number of signs, publicity materials and other texts, which had been translated from Korean into English. I was shocked to see many grammatical and punctuation errors, as well as phrases or words which made the text illegible and meaningless. As a person whose mother tongue is English, I found it embarrassing and perplexing to be provided with materials which I couldn't understand. As a graduate from the Australian College of Journalism's Diploma of Professional Writing ( Editing & Proofreading ) in August of 2004, this experience only highlighted to me the ever-growing need to edit and proofread all texts produced.  As an experienced arts worker, an avid reader and writer, I am enthusiastically beginning a career in the editing and proofreading industry.  I have had many roles in the arts industry, including: columnist for Arts Hub, writer of short stories and poetry, various production and performance roles in theatre and am an avid reader and writer. I have written, edited and proofread texts such as scripts, advertisements, business cards, media releases, novels and formal letters.  I have 24 hour access to the Internet, and can work from home if and when required. If you would like to see some samples of my proofreading, please feel free to contact me." Sincerely, Naomi Guss  mailto:rrseams@yahoo.com
