ePublish Unum - Education for Authors155,450Last weekend Evo and Jeff emceed and presented at an indie author conference in Phoenix. Nearly a hundred authors and authors-in-training gathered to learn tips and tricks on everything from social media promotion to legally protecting your work. In turn, we learned what people were focusing on, were worried about, and were excited over.  On the next epsiode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll look at what we learned from attending an indie author conference, and what it might imply for the state of the indie author world. _The Books & Beer Hangout_ is a weekly video chat on topic related to something in or around the world of digital publishing … with beer!

ePublish Unum - Education for Authors155,450The world of fiction and non-fiction books may not seem that different to readers, but there are good reasons few authors excel in both categories. But does that really need to be the case? Recently Jeff Moriarty made the switch from fiction to non-fiction author, and hit more than a few potholes along the way. If you've thought about checking out the grass on the other side of the fence, he has some survival tactics that could save you some of his headaches. On the next episode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll look at survival tips for fiction authors looking to enter the world of non-fiction.

Evo Terra1,487,587*Save the Date: No Pants Light Rail Ride 2014* Last year 350 people took to the Light Rail in Phoenix and took off their pants – and we’re doing it again! The 6th Annual No Pants Light Rail Ride is coming up on Sunday, January 12th at 1pm. This is part of the Global No Pants Subway Ride started by Improv Everywhere in 2002. What started as 7 people doing a prank on the New York subway has expanded into an international event involving tens of thousands of people in dozens of cities all over the world. The rules of the event are pretty simple – show up at the designated place and time with your light rail pass, take off your pants, get on the light rail, and act like nothing strange is going on. You have no idea why other people around you aren’t wearing pants. If you have trouble keeping a straight face, you may want to bring your earbuds and listen to your music. Warm or cold, rain or shine we’re doing this. As the date gets closer, we’ll bring you in the loop about where the starting points will be and where the group is meeting up. We had an awesome time last year riding the rail sans pants and meeting up at Angel’s Trumpet Ale House. Check out the photos and video from last year’s event to see for yourself.Phoenix No Pants Light Rail Ride 20142014-01-12 21:00:008  
ePublish Unum - Education for Authors155,450For many of us, indie or self-publishing follows the same flow as traditional publishing, but we're in charge. OK... but what if that's not the optimal way? What if we need to completely rethink the entire process? I'm not talking about cutting corners, but I am talking about a new concept called _lean publishing_? On the next episode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll cover this new process at a high level and give you our take on the process. Is it for you? Heck, is it for us?

ePublish Unum - Education for Authors155,450In a recent survey of would-be authors, it was found that most are unaware of the difference in royalty payments between indie publishing and a traditional deal. Almost all are under the illusion that traditional publishers will take care of marketing for them, and more than two-thirds are convinced they are unable to make a quality book without a traditional publisher. Of course, _you_ don't think that. You know the score. But knowing what others are wrong about can help you better position yourself and take advantage of the less-educated masses. On this episode of _The Books & Beer Hangout_, we'll dissect the survey a little more, have a good laugh, and hopefully point you in the right direction. _The Books & Beer Hangout_ is a weekly video chat on topic related to something in or around the world of digital publishing … with beer!

Evo Terra1,487,587*How to stop doing things | Show Up Sundays* If you've noticed, my Google+ profiles shows me working at _helping people figure out what not to do_. Sure, that's a little flippant, but it's also fairly accurate. I've done a lot of dumb things the hard and wrong way in my time. But I've a knack for noticing that -- quickly -- and making the necessary adjustments in my approach to work smarter, not harder.  And that's what I'll pontificate about on the next _Show Up Sundays_. ▶ *Got a question or show idea?* Ask it here: http://goo.gl/SWALwi ▶ *Want to attend?* Click the big YES button below ▶ *Can't watch live?* Subscribe to my YouTube channel: http://goo.gl/zj8gzV _About Show Up Sundays_ For me, Sunday is part work, part relaxation, and part planning for the week ahead. I start early -- or rather I should -- to get the jump on the day. Each week I'll choose a different theme, talk about that for a bit, and then answer questions.

I had it described to me once with the comment "You get away with so much shit just because you're Evo." True, but the secret therein lies in David's quote.

Evo Terra1,487,587*Re-state your assumptions.* Assumptions are rather like dust-bunnies. They build up and take on a quasi-sentient nature if you let them. That's not a good thing, because the assumptions you relied on ten years ago can't be all that relevant to you today. Things change. You change. The world changes. And so too should your assumptions. On this _Show Up Sundays_, we'll talk about the systematic dismantling of assumptions and the benefits that will bring.  _About Show Up Sundays_ For me, Sunday is part work, part relaxation, and part planning for the week ahead.

Evo Terra1,487,587*On Honesty* You were taught to be an honest person. So ... why aren't you better at it? Are you afraid of hurting someone's feelings? Probably. And in some cases, it's OK to lie your ass off. But that's the exception to the rule. On this _Show Up Sunday_, I'll talk about the damage good-natured people do when they fail to be completely -- though not necessarily painfully -- honest with those who ask their opinion. _About Show Up Sundays_ For me, Sunday is part work, part  relaxation, and part planning for the week ahead. I start early -- or rather I should -- to get the jump on the day.  Care to join me? Each week I'll choose a different theme, talk about that for a bit, and then answer your questions.

ePublish Unum - Education for Authors155,450Welcome to the Books & Beer Hangout! This is a weekly video chat on topic related to something in or around the world of digital publishing … and we drink beer! It isn't enough to publish one book and let it sit around gathering dust.

Kevin Lanni0*Seating is limited* Go to the official page to RSVP! From the official site: Carl Sagan once said that there are four large bodies other than the Sun in our solar system, and the rest are debris. But these debris, small as they are, are themselves vast worlds with secrets waiting to be discovered. In the last decade, NASA has sent an unprecedented number of missions into space to explore the mysteries of these debris – specifically Mars, our Moon, and asteroids. The Planetary Society is proud to invite you to an evening with scientists working on the Mars Curiosity and Opportunity missions, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Mars Odyssey, and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. This is a casual event and suitable for the entire family. Grab a snack and a drink and learn about the latest scientific results and stunning images returned from our missions of exploration. Questions and discussion are encouraged. A representative of the Planetary Society, Casey Dreier, will also be in attendance with the Society's own touchable Mars meteorite. The event is located on the third piece of debris from the sun, at Spokes on Southern, an alehouse in Tempe, AZ. Parking is free. We will start gathering around 7pm. There will be free chips, salsa, guacamole and happy-hour prices on drinks and food throughout the duration of the event. Speakers start around 7:30pm. *The event is free and open to all* so bring a friend and get a unique perspective on NASA's exploration of the solar system. *Guests* Dr. Jim Bell (ASU) Jim is an active planetary scientist and has been heavily involved in many NASA robotic space exploration missions, including Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR), the Mars Exploration Rovers, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, and the MSL Curiosity rover mission. He is also the author of multiple books, his most recent being "The Space Book: From the Beginning to the End of Time, 250 Milestones in the History of Space and Astronomy," and is available to sign any you bring. He is also the President of the Planetary Society. Dr. Briony Horgan (ASU) Briony's research uses satellites to help determine the habitability of ancient surface environments on Mars. She is an active science team member on the Mars Odyssey mission. Dr. Melissa Rice (Caltech) Melissa is a scientist studying geology on the Martian surface and is an active science team member on the Mars Curiosity and Opportunity missions.

Scott Lewis378,075With all of the silly apocalypse myths being muttered all over the place, a few friends and I decided to hang out, maybe have a beer and talk about just how silly all of this hokum is. This will inevitably lead into a discussion about what 12/21/12 really is: The Winter Solstice. What is the Winter Solstice? It's the reason for the season!  Join +Ian O'Neill, +Tony Darnell, +Nicole Gugliucci and myself as we have some fun, debunk some nonsense, spin some science and cause a general ruckus in an HOA. We might even get some surprise guests pop in from time to time. I have no real time-line for this hangout, but have set it at 2 hours just because I arbitrarily decided it was going to be two hours long. It might not be that long, it might be longer. Depends on how the conversation goes.  If you're watching and want to ask some questions or make witty comments, please feel free to do so.

ePublish Unum - Education for Authors155,450_This week's topic:_ *No More Boring Book Videos: YouTube Strategies for Authors YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, and over 4 _billion_ hours of video are viewed each month. This has lured many authors to try their hand at making videos, with everything from outright commercials to cinematic trailers. Unfortunately, many of the videos are just not very good, and don't show much result for the author. So is there a successful approach to video for authors, or is it a medium they should avoid? On this week's show, we'll interview +Caleb J. Ross about how he is killing it as a "booktuber", and how he has sucessfully adopted video as a promotion tool for himself and his work.

Fraser Cain988,331Join us every Sunday night for another @100902337165997768522, where we stream the view from several telescopes into a live Google+ Hangout on Air. We'll stream whatever's in the sky right now. We'll answer questions, take requests, and generally geek out about astronomy. What's on the agenda this week?  - The @101461771579697778955 is perfect so we'll probably have several views of it - The planets are too low on the horizon, so no luck there - somebody might be able to get @106397393735580644683, though. - The summer constellations are fading, and now the fall constellations are coming up. We should be able to see both, including the Eagle Nebula, Swan Nebula, Great Globular Cluster in Hercules, Ring Nebula, the Andromeda Galaxy, and more. - If we're lucky, we'll also get a view from the other side of the planet, showcasing a live view of the @116479286515493152582 and its current sunspots. (the image for this week's Event is the Eagle Nebula, captured by @107852824321756704184, and a good example of the kind of stuff we'll see) You don't need any special technology to enjoy our star parties. Just join this event, and then you'll get a notification when we go live. Then you'll be able to ask us questions, request objects, and generally learn about astronomy and astrophotography as a hobby.

Got Android? Get Podcast.

In theory, Android users now have a native podcasting app, as Google has just updated Google Play (at least for North American users) with a bunch of podcasts. Thanks to the awesomeness of +Ruth Carter, our show is listed. I can't check if over here in Thailand, but hopefully some (or even better: ALL) of you Android users will give it a shot and let me know how it works for you.

Who says birdwatching in Australia has to be boring?

When my editor at TravelSmith suggested I write a piece on birding in Australia, I was hesitant. I mean: I'm not a birder. But I was spending two months on the island/in the country/on the continent, and I'd already seen quite a few oddly colorful (and horridly noisy) winged creatures.

So I took the assignment, gave it a subtle (not) humorous twist, and am now sitting a little stunned at the fact that she published it. Huh. Score one for people with a sense of humor.

Sorry-not-sorry in advance if this offends any Aussies. Or birders. Or birds, I guess.

When is a podcast not a podcast?

There are lots of ways I can look at this piece. On one hand, it could be an early sign of a resurgence in press interest for the podcasted audiobook world I've lived in for more than a decade.

Or it might re-invigorate the pay-to-listen space, as they use the corner crack dealer's model of "the first hit is free". That's a model that hasn't worked out all that well in the podcasting space, but...

Or maybe it causes other businesses to think about distributing content where audio or video plays a supporting role now that everyone has a mobile device in their pocket.

And finally, which is the most likely, is that nothing will happen. But hey, one can dream, right?

Beauty in the Blight or Learning to Love Sheffield, England

Sheffield probably isn't high on your list of places to visit. And I wouldn't wish a trip there in late winter on anyone. But the city's charms quickly grow on you. Or they did me, at least.

Check out my latest piece for TravelSmith below!

I'm pretty stoked about this week's episode of our podcast. Not only is our buddy and fellow travel writer +Alex Berger the guest, but I moved our show from the Travel category to the Comedy category. We're clearly still in the latter, but dammit... I work pretty hard to make it funny. Why they hell not see if it's got legs to that iTunes audience.

(Right. As if anyone searches iTunes for anything less than the top 10 list. But hey, a guy's gotta have dreams, right? Or maybe just delusions of grandeur.)

Photos & Beer from Bangkok

As I dabble more with Snapchat, I'm finding it a fun storytelling medium. Today I planned on making a story out of simply photos. But then I ordered beer from Wishbeer. So you get a little mix of items today.

I'd be tempted to think the headline below was the result of someone spending too much time with Headline Analyzer or some other tool, but it's too long for that.

Unless there's a secret base floating at a Lagrange point somewhere we're all unaware of, we're in no way ready to deal with an incoming space rock.

(Note: I've full confidence we will be at some point. Just not today. Hopefully in my lifetime. And even more hopefully before the next one does zero in on us.)

I've a hypothesis that the tenor of G+ has changed significantly, rewarding behavior us early adopters actually tried to discourage. I'll go into more detail later. But now I'm running on little sleep and having a hard time making the brain come up with the words the finger needs to type. I should go back to bed. Or just post more on the experiment. Yeah, I'll do that.

Partial eclipse coming to Bangkok!

Man, I must be slipping. I usually know of these things weeks if not months in advance. And here's another one I almost missed.

My fellow SE Asian friends will get a great view, with those in Malaysia and Indonesia seeing full totality. Lucky!

Snapchat as my Thailand travelogue.

Though I'm a proud early adopter, sometimes it takes me a little time to figure out how I'd use a social media tool. Case in point: I'm now using Snapchat as my daily "log" of my life in Bangkok. If you want to see what it's like over here in Thailand (or wherever I happen to be) with content that can't be more than 24-hours old, add away!

A clear lack of good judgement and oversight aside, I'm more than a little surprised, humbled, and pleased to see us (somehow, unbelievably) listed in the #2 spot on TapInfluence's Top 10 Travel Bloggers to Inspire Your Next Adventure list for Feb 22, 2016.

Woot!

#2 Most Inspirational Travel Bloggers are...us?

Yes, we like them apple just fine. Thanks, +TapInfluence Team!

Evo and Sheila are two of the newest bloggers on our list, having started their blog in January 2015. Last year, both decided to give up “normal” jobs and lives and adopted a “digital nomad lifestyle” so they could travel the world. They are off to a great start!___A clear lack of good judgement and oversight aside, I'm more than a little surprised, humbled, and pleased to see us (somehow, unbelievably) listed in the #2 spot on TapInfluence's Top 10 Travel Bloggers to Inspire Your Next Adventure list for Feb 22, 2016.

Who says birdwatching in Australia has to be boring?

When my editor at TravelSmith suggested I write a piece on birding in Australia, I was hesitant. I mean: I'm not a birder. But I was spending two months on the island/in the country/on the continent, and I'd already seen quite a few oddly colorful (and horridly noisy) winged creatures.

So I took the assignment, gave it a subtle (not) humorous twist, and am now sitting a little stunned at the fact that she published it. Huh. Score one for people with a sense of humor.

Sorry-not-sorry in advance if this offends any Aussies. Or birders. Or birds, I guess.

I often struggle to explain why I fell in love with Bangkok and decided to make it my home for a year. But such is the thing with love: It's always hard to explain.

So rather than try, I wrote my new city a love letter.

Please read past the headline!

Because yes, obviously and clearly, the work influencers do is valuable and worthy of tangible remuneration. However, that's not the gist of the article.

This isn't one you can skim and assume you've got it. Read it slowly. And then read it again for good measure. And it's not one I can boil down to a witty one-liner or adequately summarize in a few sentences.

Just over a year ago, we started our around-the-world tour with three weeks in the Brittany area of France. And now TravelSmith has published our story about our stay there, a little over a year later.

It was fun to relive the experience by writing about it for our partner. And even though I certainly don't miss the cold, rainy weather, I rather miss the place. It's not Paris, but a visit to the Brittany area is something you'll not soon forget.

Panic at Monkey Island, Thailand

These monkeys go bananas for bananas on Monkey Island, just off Na Jomtien, which is just 2 hours bus/cab ride down from Bangkok, Thailand.

Special thanks to Ocean Marina Yacht Club, Pattaya for inviting us and a few of our traveling friends up for the last few days. We had a blast, but I think a trip to Monkey Island takes the cake. Or perhaps... the banana.

(Fair warning: This video features monkeys in their natural habitat eating a very unnatural diet. I've no idea how "responsible" it is (probably not very), and there's no way they can support a population of that size without humans showing up several times a day with boats full of food-bearing tourists, so they're probably screwed when the zombie apocalypse happens. Having said that, my money is on these guys as the replacement species after we're gone.... more »

I have been accused of being quick to whip out the #banhammer on the communities where I moderate. This is a fair criticism. I cannot abide useless people, and have no patience for trolling behavior. I accept it happens, take swift action in the tiny, insignificant corners of the internet where I have the power, and ignore it when I'm frequenting areas where I don't have the control.

Here's a fascinating report from reddit's r/science/ group that sheds light on why I'm such an asshole.
