Robert Harris on Writing

I found an article written by author Robert Harris on writing fiction. Harris has penned several bestselling historical novels. I haven't read all his books, and the ones I did read I read in a weird order. My first contact with Harris' work was Archangel, which in turn led me to Enigma, and then, Fatherland. Fatherland … Continue reading Robert Harris on Writing

Stephen King’s Advice On Writing the First Draft

I found a lovely new writer's website the other day and it was by accident, as is always the case, because it featured an old article by Stephen King titled: “Everything You Need to Know About Writing Successfully – in Ten Minutes”. The article is a bit dated with some of the advice maybe not wholly … Continue reading Stephen King’s Advice On Writing the First Draft

Let’s Get Digital 2 Is Out!

‪Writers‬! The new updated edition of David Gaughran’s Let’s Get Digital is now available at Amazon. I’ve learned a lot from the first edition, and I’m sure a lot of other ‪authors‬ did too, so make sure you get this updated version with all the latest bits of information on how to launch your writing career.

“Let’s Get Digital covers everything from how the disruptive power of the internet has changed the publishing business forever to the opportunities this has created for writers. It gives you practical, hands-on advice, sharing the very latest best practices on editing, cover design, formatting, and pricing.”

Also:

“It gives you proven marketing strategies that won’t eat into your writing time and are actually effective at selling books. It also shares tips on platform building, blogging, and social networking, and explains which approaches are best for selling fiction versus non-fiction, and what writers should really focus on.”

There are plenty of other reasons, too, why you should get Let’s Get Digital. Go check it out, read what it is all about, read the reviews. It’s a good book to have as your partner when you venture into the publishing unknown.

I’m certainly updating my old copy.

How Can I Find My Writing Voice? By Writing For Your Twin

I received this article by Chip MacGregor in my email earlier today and it piqued my interest. In the past I've often wondered about my writing voice and I've concluded that it is something that happens naturally. I don't think it can be forced. I suppose one can pretend a voice by writing in a certain style, but … Continue reading How Can I Find My Writing Voice? By Writing For Your Twin
