"kobo" Discussed on Discovered Wordsmiths
"Actually for books, right? Yes, exactly. Yeah. I mean some of them aren't as long as the others not to spoil but you know, like there's deaths at different times, you know, but yeah, it was very interesting. I, you know, so that was just my, my pollster story where I kind of made a little bit of a fool of myself but I have a signed copy. Yeah, that's okay. I would ask you what your favorite book story is but we'll just say, it's probably the digital bookstore at kobo.com. Yes, it is. I mean, I love the digital bookstore. I do have a soft spot for like book stores in general and one of the ones that I've been really liking, if you can't get the book digital yet and because like so I'm from Ireland and sometimes books are released their months before they're available in Canada for shame traditional books. So what I've been doing is there's this book store called Kenny's. That's available online. It's an actual book store that's in Galway, in Ireland. And I had never discovered it before the pandemic. I can't even remember how I found it. I think I was trying to find Indie bookstores that would deliver world with it and they deliver worldwide for like, a Euro and they have all these books. And sometimes it's very hard to find like Irish specific books and if they come out first. So, what I've been doing is like months during my books there and then waiting before, I can order the the digital version to be available for my Kobo so yeah, Chinese. I just this dependent bookstore that's run by I think off of years old, they were just celebrating that so that would be kind of one of my my shoutouts, I think. Yeah. You know, I was thinking, if you're looking for new features to add to your digital device off, I would say that when I open a new story that if I get that smell of a book or if it's an old classic, like the old classic books smell, I would be all over that. That'd be great. Did you suck? Oh well actually, this is wonderful timing. You should go onto social because if you go onto Cabos, Facebook or Instagram on April 1st, we post office a perfume called Cobo and it was sort of an April Fool's like smells like old books. It's the essence of reading really wanted to entice you back in and then it was announced a few days ago that it is actually not April Fool's. We're doing a small run of this perfume which is really funny. I thought long as we've partnered with a perfumery to even, and yeah. So there's a contest running right now. So if you go and tag your friend, you might be able to get a limited edition batch of bulbs. That would be cool. I think I should look up the old scratch and sniff stickers and see if they got any for that old book, smell and put it on my device and you can scratch it every time. Yeah, I know. I'm really curious to smell this. I wonder like, I'd have to enter myself, but I don't know if that's allowed try and win this perfume because yeah, there's something very calming effect that smell right. Yeah, I don't know if my wife would appreciate here. I want you to smell like an old book. Maybe you just bricks it like when you're reading, you know, it's just into you put it on that. Wage your favorite. Yeah. Right, maybe if I do a live appearance some day in the future, you can spray it. Give the everybody that feeling. Exactly. Yeah, I know it's it's kind of those things that you didn't really realize that you missed until somebody's like we've made a perfect with that. You're like, yeah, I want that well-off actually with all the books. I do have it's fairly easy to get that smell. You know, we've got enough books between everybody here. So ke Tera. It's been great talking to you. I appreciate you taking some time letting us know more about Cobo and what it offers readers. I think this has been great before we go. Though, is there anything else with Kobo or your devices that you'd like. Let everyone know or mention? I mean, a lot of it is still kind of top-secret or what we're working on, but I would say, if you're interested in both devices and kind of, maybe we're we're expanding KO plus two next. I would say to follow our social so you can find us by searching COBO on like Instagram or Facebook, or Twitter and then you'll see dead We do have a device coming out in the very near future quite excited about. So I would keep an eye out for that and if you're interested in publishing your books to Cobo through Cobra read, what I would say, check us out to, if you have any questions, you can email the team at writing life at kobo.com. Wonderful. Thank you very much for taking the time. It's been great talking to you today. Thank you for having my life is great. Thank you for listening to discovered wordsmiths, come back next week and listen to another author. Discuss the road they've traveled and maybe sometime in the near future. It might be you.
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Candles with Louis Hotchkiss
"Has been like the most hotly anticipated episode for a long time because we are very big. Candle aficionados and our an our listeners are as well i have to ask you. How did you become the candle man. well for me Well thank you for having me first of all i'm really excited about this also I think it was until you guys contacted me. I didn't realize that i was an expert at anything. And then i had to think about it for a while but i started making candles and Kind of By accident We had started a product line Added started to do pretty well and We decided to add some candles to its fragrance items to it and that started to do very well and i asked a friend to make them for me and The friend was met was at that time. He was a key manufacturer of candles for estee lauder And our line started to take off pretty well for him and one day he came to me and he said hey louis. I've got some bad news. I have a project. That's probably gonna take me seven months to complete. So i won't be able to pull your candles anymore and so i said oh. Wow you know. What am i going to do here. And i asked him. What am i going to do. His name was jose was a an originally from italy and he said well. Why don't you come down to my place every day for like the next month and we will make all these candles together. And i'll teach you everything i know. So every drive to his place. We'd make our candles. I'd make the st lauder candles and it turned out to be fantastic experience I realized that at lunch every day. It's okay it's time to take a break and we would go into his kitchen in the place and we make pasta. Have a glass of wine. Finish it up with an espresso and a piece of chocolate. And i thought well i could get into this making. I want to hang out with the catch career scratch. That's how i kind of got into it and then we started to. He taught me a certain technique Added some of our own Personality to that and it just kind of took off from there and never stopped making candles since we have not stop making candles since this year will probably make for half a million candles. Oh my god and this is both for your own line kobo and also for brands which we cannot name because they don't want people to know not that bad but you know you are like let's say i am. You know insert famous brand here. They're not making their like. If i'm a big brand and i don't even use one because i don't want to mislead people but they don't necessarily make their own candles. They go to an expert. Who makes the best candles in the world. you know. So they'll go to you and you'll make their candles. That is correct. That is okay. Got most of the main candle brand's in the world. Don't actually make their own candles. What that's i have to say. That is really confusing. And i realize you're not gonna like namedrop. But why won't some of these big catamarans make thrown kanter. That's super confusing to me. I get like a fashion brand. Might not because it's like wide away. They want to put millions of dollars until like making a candle. That's going to sit at their cashier point and be like oh we also have this scandal you know but why would a big fat candle brand not make their own candles. Probably because the but most of their efforts into marketing and manufacturing is a whole nother process which requires a lot of energy and a lot of attention and a lot of the brands have developed through marketing campaigns so they might manufacture other products. They've they've probably do They might have some body care that they include in their line and they don't necessarily have the expertise or the energy to create all of these different areas for themselves. Got god is it safe to say making a candles way. More complicated than like mixing up a body lotion There's definitely different elements. Because you've got heat involved you've got you've got All these different vessels than different times so for example for us. Each different vessel requires the different wick. So you've you've probably you've probably had some candles that That you don't burn all the way to the to the ends of the glass for example. Yeah oh we're gonna get to some of those questions area in the different size. You've got the different. You've got the height the width the materials. The fragrance you have all those elements in In lotions as well lotions can be complicated as well. Because you have preservatives systems That you're putting into lotions. Also so i wouldn't say that It's much more complicated but It takes a lot more time to manufacture. Candle
How To Self Publish Your Book Online With XinXii Publishing
"What's happening? I am just absolutely tickled to death that you take a little bit of time out today to spend a little bit of time with me to talk about one of my favorite things in self-publishing books. And you know how long we've been talking about it. They're going on sixteen weeks straight of discussing all the different Avenues it rest assured. We're not quite done but this is probably going to be one of the last month or this type of publishing they're going to talk about we're going to switch over into aggregate publishing and audiobook publishing more importantly in the coming weeks. So let's focus on this long last option. Now, this is not to say that I've exhausted every Avenue. I've just hit all the major Avenues some of the areas that people have asked me about the thing with self-publishing a book on off online is it can be overwhelming it can seem like oh my gosh, there's Amazon. There's Apple there's Barnes & Noble. There's Kobo. There's racket since rackets in scope. Oh, I said it twice just coughing. Twice is nice. There's smashwords. There's draft the Jewelers published. Oh my gosh. Well, I thought what better way to break it all down then just do an entire podcast series about this off. So in any event, we're going to be discussing an aggregate publisher an aggregate publisher works like this you upload your content to their platform and they feed it out to numerous Avenues on your behalf. Typically, typically an aggregate publisher takes a percentage of the net profits that come in from the different areas. Okay. Now too bad, there's other ones like published drive that charge a fee a subscription fee to do it since she's not so much like that, but I'm going to put a little bit of an asterisk next to this. So we're going to be talking about Shinji full disclosure song. I'm just curating information here. I've never used them. In fact today. I actually started breaking ground and started uploading an audiobook cuz I'm really curious. They have some Avenues. I don't see a page or through other areas like a CX or find a way voices or published drives. So I said, let's go and give this a shot. There's a little bit of an ambiguity about it though, and I'm going to discuss it here. Get too far ahead of myself. So Shen she's the name of the company. It's spelled x i n x i i and look it up. Yes. It is pronounced Shen. She actually found a video of someone saying it that actually is from the companies and she so european-based company and I always try to cross check to see if they're legit. If any aggregate Publishers good the alliance of Indian authors is one of the best organizations to cross-check any kind of services for self-publishers. You have something that's called the Watchdog service and on that Watch Dog service, they fully vet competition and they don't mince words if there's something a little bit of skew a little bit off. They're not going to recommend it. They'll probably put a caution rating or even avoid it altogether. With Shadow, it gets a recommended rating. Now that is like the top award, you know, there is excellent partner. But since she's not a partner, they're just recommending. So it's without that partner relationship that they have the recommendation. So that speaks volumes ahead of time. Keep in mind Ally the alliance of independent. Authors is run by any authors for any others. Isn't that somebody getting their you know Palms greased saying well, you know, if you give us good words, well, we'll go ahead and pay a little extra. Something doesn't work that way. So in any event, they distribute ebooks and audiobooks but no print books. And so if you're looking for another print-on-demand Avenue Shane, she's not it off. I try to do some digging to see if that was something I was coming any time soon, but I didn't find anything about it. Let's learn. With the books. They accept files. Oh my gosh, like I think thirty different file types. I will mention these ones real briefly here doc ePub PDF. Text PowerPoint. What? Yeah, they accept PowerPoint Excel. Yeah, they accept Excel spreadsheets what PostScript and so many more years. There's no minimum requirement or maximum threshold. Now, I'm going to have a little bit of an asterisk here because I saw they said there's no minimum requirement off. No, ma'am ran out of pages. Technically there is there is and and looks like it too far ahead ourselves here distribution goes out to Amazon the example Bookstore Barnes & Noble Google Kobo Scribd. They have 27 Avenues in total Plus. the shaanxi author page now Shinji author page is essentially a way that you can distribute through the senshi platform and because it's an aggregate publisher. You'll be going to the various Avenues. Let's say you're Distributing ebook over to Amazon. Everybody knows that if you have your book price between 299 and 99 at 70% through Amazon KDP. Well,
Using Tablo Publishing for your online book
"Hey there, this is Dale and I'm just tickled to death that you took a little bit of time out your day to spend a little bit of time with me to talk about our favorite things and self-publishing books. And you know, I don't say this enough, but I appreciate each and every single one of you that it's taking a little bit of time out your day. So with that being said we're episode 76 of this freaking podcast. I mean we've been going seventy six weeks straight. So that's freaking awesome. But without any further bloviating cuz we got a lot of ground to cover today when it comes to self publish books online. It can be so stinking overwhelming. There's so many options. We're not really sure which ones to go with what's the pertinent information that we need to dive into to get started, you know, is this going to be okay for you or is this going to be okay for me? Well, that's why I'm kind of demystifying this process and this is why we're working on a 15th straight episode has self publishing a book online. The solution when it comes to publishing to various platforms can be found through what's called aggregate publishing how to aggregate publish your works like this you upload your content to a given platform. That's an aggregate publisher. Then they send it out to various Avenues to say places like Amazon Apple Barnes & Noble Kobo Google Play books. So on and so forth rather than having to go to each and every single one of those Dash boards and uploading each one of them individually. You can just do it through one and I guess what your CPA is going to love you to the end of the year because you'll have 50 different w-9s to file with them and it's only just one that you can have to worry about. We're going to be talking about aggregate publisher today known as tab Volvo. I'd heard about Tableau a few years ago. When the MacMillan publishing company known as pronoun went out of business pronoun was an aggregate publisher and it was great. I really loved It actually brought me at a fair chunk of change and was distributing some of my stuff over to places like Google Play books when I couldn't do that. So I was looking for some solutions wage in Tableau was one of them but had a little bit of a hang up and you going to find out why a little bit of a hang up in just a second here. That's not to say that tableaus bat. Don't tune me out because that's actually pretty good news full disclosure. I'm just curating information here. So don't shoot the messenger have never used any of this stuff. So anything I say is an opinion when I say well that's good or that's bad. It's just from the outside looking in that I'm saying this I can say for sure I can say for certain that the alliance of em, an author's very reputable company that it's a non-profit organization run by Indie authors for Indie authors. They fully vet different services and part of those Services is off. Watchdog service and they have actually given Tableau in excellent rating and they're even an ally partner. So that speaks volumes to what they you have and what they bring to the table just to kind of summarize before we jump into things if you listen to my episode about published Drive Tableau functions much in the same way, but there's some deviations there's some differences than what they have with published drive. So before we jump in with all that, let's break down each one of the things they do what they do not do is they do not distribute audiobooks. Just going to get that off the table get that out the way they don't deal with audio books whatsoever. They distribute e-books and print books. Now. I'm going to save some of the stuff for last for instance. We're going to talk about royalties and how it's all paid out a little bit later because wage They're all the same royalties. So for ebook distribution and it appears for ebook and print book that they have 35 online bookstores and they also feed out to scores of other bookstores online. But part of those bookstores include Amazon Apple Books Barnes & Noble booktopia never heard of them before wage Scribd Microsoft. I thought that was pretty interesting. I had never seen anybody should be two Microsoft before overdrive and another one called readings and then they just say home and More in quotations. I tried to track down there and more to find out what these other 35 different platforms were but I couldn't find a job information literally couldn't find it anywhere. You're going to find out why there was some issues that I had

Using Nature and Animals to Manage Anxiety
"Richard. It's great to have you. A lot has been talked about the connection between mental health and nature mental health and animals. And I kind of want to start off in this place. I'm a big fan of social media loved or hated. It's probably here to stay and one of the things that I often see on social. Media's this meam that says the best antidepressant is a walk in nature and I know that you don't feel that nature replaces medical science. But you do feel that a walk in nature has real real support and real help for people who are suffering from depression. Can you talk about that for a moment? And that's new. When I wrote last child in the Woods College in two thousand five. This was ignored the impact of the natural world on human wellbeing on on health on cognitive functioning all of that pitted been in basically ignored and I could find maybe sixty studies because many of them were about the growing disconnect between children and they're for adults to and nature and some of the some of those studies dealt with the benefits and some of those studies with mental health and physical health. That is a drop in the bucket. Compared to how much money is spent researching just about everything else and it struck me that something. So large as the impact of the natural world experience on human health and wellbeing have been ignored. How could that be and as I looked into it? I was working with some neuro scientists. Them they were studying brain architecture development and young children and they were looking at all kinds of things and how that affected brain architecture development everything from parent child attachment to add daycare too dangerous neighborhoods in all of that and those things they were. Aim literally shapes the brain. You Early Childhood and I asked them on. Have you ever thought about how the natural world helped shape the brain young children experiences actual contact with the natural world? And they look at you with a blank face and they said what's nature and I understand that that science has difficult time defining nature. But you know I said to the neuroscientist. This isn't rocket science or and it isn't brain surgery. Come up with a hypothesis and tested hundred. Twenty trees pray or whatever. They still had trouble so I decided that was one of the reasons why this was so under. Studied is the blind spot in science about nature the rest of nature which we are part the second reason. Where does the research money come from? What till can you manufacturer? What thing can you commercialize out of that? Now there are some things I mean parks and outdoor hiking organizations things like that. There are some but for the most part people don't think about cert- certainly funders. Don't think about this as something that they can get something out of by funding. That's changing today. If you go to the chill nature network which you mentioned your introduction. We have a research library here that we built and it is for anybody in the world is free. And there are now probably. It's just tipped over one thousand studies. We have abstracts for him links to the original studies when they're available so it's gone from about sixty two over a thousand in about fourteen years after not existing before. I think that it's interesting. That one of the things you said and this really plays to the pessimist in me is. We don't want to tell people to go for walks because there's no funding for it and you can't make money it you know. We can't prescribe one. Walk a day or hug your dog every day that that's not something that you can fill at the pharmacy and this is kind of cancer. Balanced against the medication is important. Look at the advances that we've made with cancer by coming up with better treatments etc but I would even argue that taking somebody who is suffering from cancer and completely isolating them taking away their friends their support systems their animals and even a window would put them in more of a bad way than they already are. And I think that's what you're saying and you've talked about in your work. How animal assisted therapy is becoming one of the biggest healthcare trends and I don't think that's a bad thing but you also talk about the controversy surrounding it and then you back it up with science. Can you talk about animal? Assisted therapy for a moment. Because I I just find it absolutely fascinating. That people wouldn't respond to this favorably but I also understand that this is our culture. Everything is good and everything is bad seemingly at the same time I think it's more nuance than that. I think that most people understand that their dog helps them. You know most people get get it at this level and in terms of organized animals therapy whether it's dogs or or wine therapy with horses or going outside and connecting with wild animals. No matter what that is people necessarily understand that it's the science is coming now and the science is really interesting though that some of it is controversial but nobody. His watched a kid with disabilities in an equine therapy. A Horse therapy course assisted therapy. Setting cannot be not moved. It's very moving to watch this. One person who works in this field told me that her mother was bringing her child who is autistic to animal assisted therapy sessions which involved horses and he would ride horses with a helmet and somebody would lead the horse and he was. I think about nine years old and he had not talked ever and one day when they didn't go when they were supposed to to the horse. Therapy Her son walked into the living room and said there were horse. First Time she had heard him say a word so there are moving stories like that I talk about a woman another woman who is on the autism spectrum and she tells quite a moving story about not only how her service whose name is Cobo has her but how she has learned to help Cobo using some of the same techniques to Kobo. Us to help her so often. What is occurring is a kind of mutual. Azam is not one way. I don't want it to be seen as just what we get out of our relationship with other animals my promote something in the book called the reciprocity principle which basically holds it for every bit a healing that they give us hamels whether they are domestic or wild animals. Give us we need to give back to them. The same we need to protect them as they protect us.

How to get free audio and e-books from the library

Just go to wicks dot com. That's w. i. x. dot com. And create your professional website today. E books are one of the great joys of being digital. There's so many to choose from, but they can be expensive. Our friend Mark Saltzman who is a USA today columnist end the host of the syndicated radio show and podcast tech it out is with us, but Mark's gonna tell us about how to get e books for free or no little to no cost. Yeah. Sharon are free whether it's e books or audio books, and there's one of two ways to do it. One is to use overdrive which is an app or built into many e-readers like Kobo whereby you just type in your library card inside of the overdrive area of the Kobo e book reader or the app, and you can rent books for free you. It's a borrow books. I should say from your local library just as you would do in person, but you don't have to drive to the library and nor do you have to return it on time or face any overdue charges. But the process is the same. You reserve a book and then digitally you can read it on your Facebook reader. Or on a nap on a tablet or a smartphone or a laptop, and then when it is it, would it does expire. It just stops working unless you renew it. That's one way is to use overdrive Jefferson from the same company. Overdrive is a standalone app called Libby l. i. double b. y. and that's their way to borrow books for free from your local library or audio books. And this would need you just download the free app to your favorite IOS or Android device or windows. You log in again with your library card, and then you allow the app or your device rather to find your local libraries and you just punch in your library card once and then you can borrow books and audiobooks for free, and that also works with kindles. If you do have supported kindle, you can click a button inside Libyan. Have that book pushed that e book pushed to the supported kindle either way you're talking about borrowing books for free so you don't have to pay for them. They do include New York Times bestsellers, and other newer titles, not just the classics. And then when they do expire, you don't have to go. Anywhere pay any overdue fees, it's it's great. What what is the average length of typically sent? Seven? Fourteen days depending on the library depending on the book and often you can renew it before it expires. In other cases, somebody else has requested it. So it's as if it was a physical copy because the library pays for certain number of them, you would probably, you know, for the tech savvy listeners are probably scratching their head thinking, it's just zeros and ones. Why can't you just make an unlimited? Well, that's how they prevent piracy. There is some DRM digital rights management embedded here so that you can't just duplicate these books in freely shared them with the internet or audio book. So they it is a reservation system, but you just don't have to physically go to the library anymore. How is the selection? Because there's there's tons of of of e books, audio books that you can get on Amazon. Now, from authors, you never heard of or stuff this in the public domain. How current is the selection? Yeah, it's decent if there is a, as I mentioned a lot of the. Bestseller lists that you would read in USA today or the New York Times, many of those same books are available and to a lesser extent. Many of those same audio books are available for all the the current bestsellers. If you're willing to read something from year or two ago or a decade ago, but still big names like James, Patterson, Stephen King, or what have you, then you're still gonna find a decent selection. So it's look. It's not like you're walking into a Barnes and noble or a orders or or shopping on Amazon, where you have a huge, huge selection. If you're willing to trade a bit of selection for the convenience of being able to borrow a book without having to physically go to a library, you will not be disappointed. All right. So go to overdrive download the app and then key in your local library. Put in your card in your good. That's basically it either overdrive or the Libby app. And if you do have one of the Cobos that support overdrive built in, then you don't need the app at all. If you wanna read it on your Kobo reader for kindle, it also works with Libby. Already. Mark Saltzman is a USA day columnist. He is the host of the syndicated radio show tech it out, which is also available at a podcast.
