Resources for Writers
EDITING AND WRITING RESOURCES
From pace to dialogue, any great writer knows it's not just the story, it's how the story's told. Knowing your craft and considering the many details, while writing and while editing, will greatly improve your story, and your reader's connection to it. Here is a list of reference and craft books that I routinely consult and recommend. If you have a favorite you work with that's not on my list, please feel free to share it.
TIPS AND INSPIRATION FOR WRITERS
If you've completed your work, congratulations. If you haven't yet finished, don't get discouraged; get inspired. Here are some great resources to help you focus and bring your final project to fruition.
SELF-PUBLISHING AND E-BOOKS
The publishing scene is transforming as self-publishing has grown and e-book marketplaces thrive. Industry changes have many positive and many negative effects, but writers looking to self-publish will need to do more than they were expected to do in the past. Is self-publishing the right choice for you? If it is, how can you ensure your work is the highest quality possible so it will stand out in a digital marketplace?
