Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving! My family’s celebrating Saturday, so I still have the holiday to look forward to. Until then, I’ll be busy reading these links:
- At Writer’s Digest, The 3 Self-Publishing Paths You Should Understand. Jane Friedman’s main point: It’s possible to self-publish for next to no money at all.
- How do you know when your manuscript is done? If you suspect the story has a problem, writer Chuck Sambuchino says, it probably does.
- How to Write a Great Novel — Authors tell all. I should have included this story from The Wall Street Journal in last week’s roundup, but I just discovered it yesterday. It’s such a quality read that I’m posting it late!
- Writer Lisa Romeo asks, Can your writing been “scene”?
- A podcast from The Creative Penn on blogging basics for writers.
- I’m totally behind on the e-book thing. So I was grateful for literary agent Nathan Bransford’s post on The Top 10 Myths About E-Books.
- Wondering how to format a manuscript? Here’s how Casey McCormick does it.
- Soon-to-be author Jody Hedlund shares how her publisher chose her book title.
See you back here Monday for an awesome Q&A on book promotion.
