Default Re: Book Review: Newt and Salamanders: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual (Indiviglio)

Hi All,

Thanks very much for your notes.

I've thought about self-publishing but do not really have enough information. Also, as writing and consulting are my primary means of support, I need to be practical (I'm also locked into the revision via my original contract with the publisher!).

I've always tended towards the unstudied and under-appreciated, in creatures ranging from inverts to mammals (when working with mammals at the Bronx Zoo, I focused on bats, mustelids and rodents) and would write solely about such if able...but, unfortunately, I usually need to go with what publisher's want. I have a great deal of leeway on my blogs at www.thatpetplace.com and so can use that as an outlet for my interests at times.

Some time ago I wrote The Everything Aquarium Aquarium Book. The publisher, Adam's Media, let me include leeches, some amphibians, frog-mouthed catfishes, aquatic insects, spider crabs and other favorites, but that was highly unusual.

Perhaps I'll tap some of you for self-publishing advice in the future, if you don't mind.

Again, thanks for the warm reception,

Best, Frank Indiviglio
