Looking Back


A wonderful new author recently emailed me after reading Compulsively Writing Fiction, my free ebook on Smashwords, and asked me what I would recommend for a burgeoning author to read before embarking on the scary world of publishing. What would you recommend if this question were asked of you? It felt really good to go back over my research to give a good, comprehensive run-down of my recommendations. Here is my list:

Some books I liked were:

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/31138

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/37429

These are all free! But the ones below aren’t.

http://www.amazon.com/Reading-Like-Writer-Guide-People/dp/0060777052/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1332905663&sr=8-1 (I found this one in ebook form at my library website)

http://www.amazon.com/Reasons-Your-Never-Published-Might/dp/B0048BPDRW/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1332906116&sr=1-1 (this one too)

and these articles were good:
