ADS News

Happy Friday – we made it! It’s been a crazy week.  Today, I would like to catch you up to speed on what is happening behind the ADS scenes:

  • We are working on a new website with Rosebrook Classical, and it is coming along nicely!
  • I received a Getty Images unauthorized use notice letter.  I sent them an email explaining the image came from an RSS Feed I had on the site.  I have yet to hear back from them.  More soon.
  • I presented for the Boulder County Arts Alliance, and it was so well received, I made a recorded webinar for the Top 20 Tips for Increasing Everything portion. It’s only $5.
    Here is my YouTube invitation: http://youtu.be/VY9lrSZQj3w

The How of Audience Development for the Arts: Learn the Basics, Create Your Plan

Good news everyone!

My eBook, The How of Audience Development for the Arts: Learn the Basics, Create Your Plan, is now published and available!

I have learned a great deal from this process:

  • Friends and family can be extremely helpful when writing a book.  I had people helping with editing and acting as sounding boards to bounce material off of them.
  • The eBook process, albeit free (or close to free), is not free from hassle.  The next time I will breathe a little bit more and allow a great deal more time for the conversion process.
  • ePub/eBook readers are not perfect either.  I have a file that looks fairly good in my main reader (Adobe Digital Editions), but it will look different in the other readers.  I have to let this go for now until the industry is a little more standardized.
  • An eBook can be a good exercise for a perfectionist like me.  I am learning that I will need to let go of all the little snafus that have happened due to the format being far from perfect.
  • I have wonderful friends and family that are already forwarding the link to my eBook.

I want to thank you for your support.  I will be returning to my regularly scheduled 1-2 blogs per week starting this week.

Cheers to happy and loyal audiences,
