a: Self-publishing ~
b: cave diving


"Self-publishing is like cave diving: a lot of the time you're in the dark and the opportunities for making a wrong turn are many. Ellen shepherded me through proofreading, interior and exterior design, website, videos, printers, wholesalers, warehousing, distributors, registrations, internet, marketing, publicity and promotion, eBook, audio book, reviews, contests and more. In each and every case she knew the go-to people with the best reputations."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
