Dec. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- The Stories To Tell Books Blog has been chosen as a finalist for The Future of Ink’s Top Ten Self-Publishing Blogs Award.

The blog is written by editors Nancy and Biff Barnes of Stories To Tell Books, a Northern California editing and book design firm. The blog is a multifaceted resource for writers who want to get their books into print. It provides information on various aspects of the publishing world, and emphasizes instruction and inspiration for authors at every step of the process of creating a book, including writing, editing, book design and publishing.

“It’s an honor to be chosen as a finalist,” said Nancy Barnes, founder of Stories To Tell Books. “We appreciate The Future of Ink’s recognition of the value we provide to self-publishing authors.”

The Future of Ink is a website ( http://thefutureofink.com/top-ten-self-publishing-blogs-2... ) that describes itself as “THE authority site for online entrepreneurs who are looking for information about digital publishing.” Founders Denise Wakeman and Ellen Britt have assembled a field of celebrity judges, including Alltop.com founder Guy Kawasaki, Smashwords founder Mark Coker and Internet marketing veteran Jim Edwards.

Judges will select the Top 10 from among 29 finalists based on four criteria: Quality of Content, Frequency of Posts, Reader Involvement, and Blog Rankings, in that order.

The contest finalists reflect the dramatic changes in the world of publishing. The rise of Amazon has not only altered the world of book distribution, it has shaken up their creation. Bowker, the company which issues ISBNs in the U.S., reported that 43% of all books published in the U.S. in 2011 were self-published, continuing a trend which has produced a 287% growth in self-publishing since 2006. The American Publishers Association announced that 3.4 million ebooks were sold in 2011, an increase of 303.3% over the previous year.

“Amazon, the self-publishing revolution, and ebooks have changed the world,” said Biff Barnes. “Authors must approach the process of creating books as entrepreneurs, not just writers. The goal of our blog is to give them the tools and information they’ll need to do that successfully.”

Winners will be announced later this month.
