The ever-intrepid Jeff VanderMeer has launched, the web portal for Booklife: Strategies and Survival Tips for the 21st-Century Writer. And here's a bit more about how you can get a Booklife too:

The world has changed, and with it the art and craft of writing. In addition to the difficulties of putting pen to paper, as an author you must also contend with a slew of "new media" outlets including blogs, social networks, mini-feeds, and podcasts. This has forever altered the relationship between writers and their readers, their publishers, and their work.

In an era when authors are expected to do more and more to promote their own work, Booklife steers you through the bewildering options: What should authors avoid doing on the Internet? How does the new paradigm affect authors, readers, and the fundamentals of book publication? What’s the difference between letting Internet tools use you and having a strategic plan? Most importantly, how do authors protect their creativity while still advancing their careers? Award-winning author, editor, and web-entrepreneur Jeff VanderMeer shares his 25 years of experience and shows you exactly why you need a Booklife right now.
