Keeping abreast of new developments is important, but so is gathering information now to use later, as is thinking about how how you dealt with challenges and what inspired you. Today, I’m giving you one of each.

This morning, Joanna Penn of The Creative Penn fame signposted a very informative interview with Robin Cutler of IngramSpark, the new integrated print and ebook manufacturing and distribution platform. This is more for those hands-on self publishers, but an interesting development.

What are your thoughts for the new week?
