"Blue Ash Publishing authors are truly getting the best of both worlds in self-publishing," said BookBaby President Steven Spatz. "In addition to the education resources of Writer's Digest, authors will get the advantages of worldwide eBook distribution through BookBaby's sales network, plus, inclusive access to a powerful suite of promotional tools through our BookPromo™  program, as well as have the opportunity to print physical copies of their books. It's a perfect marriage between two leading companies in the self-publishing space, and authors will reap the benefits."

For more than 90 years, the experts at Writer's Digest have been publishing books, magazines, competitions, conferences and distance education materials for writers who want to polish their skills and hone their craft.

BookBaby is the sister company to CD Baby, the world's largest online distributor of independent music, that's paid out over a quarter billion dollars to over 300,000 artists worldwide. The company applies these same services and powerful resources to the digital publishing world, to help independent authors and publishers accomplish their goals. BookBaby offers the largest eBook distribution network of retailers, including Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and more, in over 170 countries around the globe.

"This new venture powered by BookBaby is grounded in what Writer's Digest does best: educating writers," said Writer's Digest Publisher Phil Sexton. The Writer's Digest community, founded in December 1920, provides information and inspiration for professional and aspiring writers, both traditionally published and self-published. Blue Ash Publishing takes its name from the editorial home of Writer's Digest in Blue Ash, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. 

"Thanks to our creative collaboration with BookBaby, we are confident that Blue Ash Publishing can provide writers with the service and education that they need to succeed," said Sexton. 

What Blue Ash Publishing authors can expect: 

  • 100% Net Earnings on All Sales: Blue Ash Publishing takes no commission on any book sales. Authors keep 100% of their book's net earnings. Once retailers are paid their percentage, all remaining revenue goes back to the author. BookBaby offers the largest eBook distribution network, including Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and many other popular retailers in more than 170 countries around the globe.
  • Full Ownership: Unlike other programs, Blue Ash authors own their work, including all electronic files and cover art. Authors retain the rights to their work and maintain total creative control. Writers customize their publishing package, to fit their needs and their budget.
  • Exclusive Education Programs: Every package includes an educational element. Basic packages include a weekly newsletter written by publishing experts that provides tips for building a platform and selling books. Higher-value packages include: access to WritersMarket.com, a digital subscription to Writer's Digest magazine, a year-long subscription to Writer's Digest online tutorials, a live half hour consultation with a platform specialist, and more.
  • Promotional Tools: These educational programs, exclusive only to Blue Ash Publishing, are in addition to the benefits BookBaby builds into each package, including a suite of promotional tools that are designed to help authors get their books into the hands of readers.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
