Extras for Writers

RESOURCES

Fellow author and buddy Laura Resnick’s resource page for writers is fantastic. Instead of duplicating what she’s put together, I’m sharing it with you.

But if it’s a little too complete for you to start, here’s my streamlined approach – aimed at indie publishing, because that’s what I know now — with my recommended go-to resources:

AT THE BEGINNING…

Joanna Penn/The Creative Penn:
Start with her free Author 2.0 Blueprint. Then explore the archives of her podcast.

David Gaughran:
Start on his website

 

CRAFT CONSIDERATIONS…

My very favorite writing book is actually a script-fixing book – Making a Good Script Great, by Linda Seger.

Two authors who are also good teachers:

 

 AS YOU CONSIDER THE BIZ….

  • Writer Beware – there are lots of people trying to take advantage of authors, so be careful out there
  • Author Earnings – data, data, data

 

 WHEN YOU’RE BETTER ESTABLISHED…

  • Novelists, Inc. – for multipublished authors of popular fiction; membership requirements
  • BookBub – the marketers share insights and tips on their blog

NOTE: The links to books are Amazon affiliate links (if you click my link and buy, I’ll get a tiny payment.) These books are also available on iBooks, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and most other ebook retailers.
