Move over, Georgia Nicolson. Say goodbye to Geek Girl. Meet Emma Nash. When 16-year-old Emma is ghosted by love of her life Leon Naylor, she does what any normal girl would do. She spends the entire summer lurking in her bedroom, avoiding all human contact (and the shower), surrounded by the collection of Chewits wrappers she saved from packs Leon gave her, back when he actually acknowledged her existence.... But seeing Leon suddenly ´in a relationship´ on Facebook with the perfect Anna spurs Emma into action, and she embarks on a mission to make positive changes to her life (or ´edits´, if you will), vowing to use the Internet for more than obsessively stalking Leon´s activities! Instead she will use it for good and noble causes like finding someone who will actually be nice to her and recording her findings for the rest of the world to see (i.e., BFF Steph and her mum) on her new Editing Emma blog. But Emma soon discovers her habit is harder to break than she first thought - turns out she´s not the only one editing herself online (thank you, Tinder, for finding her mum´s profile - age 35, really?) and that life through an Instagram filter isn´t always what it´s cracked up to be. But it could be worse: she could have outed her best friend, accidentally chatted up a 12-year-old boy and revealed to the world why Leon Naylor is worth no girl´s time or virginity.... Oh no, wait, that´s exactly what happened.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlie Sanderson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hcuk/003012/bk_hcuk_003012_sample.mp3.

How to Find Publishers and Agents and Get Published is about how to successfully write, pitch a book, write a query letter, promote a book, and build a platform. Many of these chapters started off as answers to questions from clients or prospective clients of Publishers Agents and Films (www.publishersagentsandfilms.com), a service that connects writers to publishers and agents. Then, I began thinking about all the steps involved, from writing a book to getting published. This is the first in a series of books directed to writers, primarily those new to pitching books and getting published, although previously published writers can benefit from some chapters, too. The book is divided into five parts: Writing Your Book: how to write your book, including increasing your creativity, looking to your personal experiences for ideas, expanding blogs or articles into books, and editing and polishing your book Pitching Your Book: how to determine whether to find a publisher or agent or self-publish, the pros and cons of working with a small or large publisher, and how to choose what publisher or agent to work with Sending Query Letters: how to write a good query letter to interest an agent, publisher, of producer in your book or script Promoting Your Book: how to build your platform and promote your book Problems with Publishers: how to deal with problem publishers who don´t pay you The chapters in this book are drawn from my over 30 years of experience in writing, pitching, promoting, and publishing books for myself and for clients; writing and sending out queries to pitch books and scripts for over 1000 clients; and working with dozens of publishers, agents, and film producers along the way. 1.

Do you want to increase the quality of your pictures and make them world-class? Are other Photoshop tutorials too complicated? Then read below. Photoshop is of great importance to engineers, bloggers, designers, artists and promotors in the digital world. Every item of value needs a quality picture to go with it. Everyone needs a piece of Photoshop. However, most of the current manuals on Photoshop are either a 600-page encyclopedia or poorly written blog posts that are impossible to replicate. This audiobook can be used for multiple Photoshop versions. In reality, the developers at Adobe cannot have their consumers constantly relearning software. Each version has implemented changes, but rarely is a tool taken out of the software in the same process. Even rarer still is a basic tool removed, which will be the types of tools we review here. Therefore, the version doesn´t really matter so long as the version is between CS5 and up. CS4 and below may be lacking some of the tools added into CS5. Additionally, even if you decide to use a free open-source software like Gimp later down the road, you can bring what you learn from this software over to that software. The symbols used to represent the tools may change between software, but you will find that many of the tools are the same. This is because the tools are based in art and art techniques, which rarely change over time, but do occasionally improve. This allows many artists to pick up different software and become acquainted with that software rather quickly. Here is a preview of what you´ll learn: History of Photoshop Basic layout Different file formats Initial setup for Photoshop 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Wright.

Life has taught Miska Tomlinson that there are no honorable men. Her womanizing brothers, her absentee father, and Mark, the married baseball player who claims to love her - all have proven undependable. But Miska has life under control. She runs her editing business from her luxury condo, stays fit with daily jogs along Chicago´s lakefront, and in her free time blogs anonymously about life as a kept woman. Enter new neighbor Dillan Foster. Between his unexpected friendship and her father´s sudden reappearance, Miska loses control of her orderly life. Her relationship with Mark deteriorates, and Miska can´t help comparing him to Dillan. His religious views are so foreign, yet the way he treats her is something she´s longed for. But Dillan discovers exactly who she is and what she has done. Too late she finds herself longing for a man who is determined to never look her way again. When her blog receives unexpected national press, Miska realizes her anonymity was an illusion. Caught in a scandal about to break across the nation, Miska wonders if the God Dillan talks about would bother with a woman like her - a woman who´s gone too far and done too much. 1.

A revelatory examination of how the wildfirelike spread of new forms of social interaction enabled by technology is changing the way humans form groups and exist within them, with profound long-term economic and social effects - for good and for ill. A handful of kite hobbyists scattered around the world find each other online and collaborate on the most radical improvement in kite design in decades. A midwestern professor of Middle Eastern history starts a blog after 9/11 that becomes essential reading for journalists covering the Iraq war. Activists use the Internet and e-mail to bring offensive comments made by Trent Lott and Don Imus to a wide public and hound them from their positions. A few people find that a world-class online encyclopedia created entirely by volunteers and open for editing by anyone, a wiki, is not an impractical idea. Jihadi groups trade inspiration and instruction and showcase terrorist atrocities to the world, entirely online. A wide group of unrelated people swarms to a Web site about the theft of a cell phone and ultimately goads the New York City police to take action, leading to the culprit´s arrest.With accelerating velocity, our age´s new technologies of social networking are evolving, and evolving us, into new groups doing new things in new ways, and old and new groups alike doing the old things better and more easily. You don´t have to have a MySpace page to know that the times they are a changin´. Hierarchical structures that exist to manage the work of groups are seeing their raisons d´tre swiftly eroded by the rising technological tide. Business models are being destroyed, transformed, born at dizzying speeds, and the larger social impact is profound. One of the culture´s wisest observers of the transformational power of the new forms of tech-enabled social interaction is Clay Shirky, and Here Comes Everybody is his marvelous reckoning with the ramifications of all this on what we do and who we are. ... 1.
