3 Blogs Every Self Publisher Needs To Read
|June 20, 2012||Posted by admin under Uncategorized|
I spend a lot of time writing, writing books, writing blog posts and writing promotional pieces for my books or blog. It really is an endless cycle, one that is easy to get caught up in and swept of the ledge like going over Niagara Falls. Sometimes you need to just quit writing and read for a while. There are a few blogs that evolve around self publishing or writing that I enjoy reading from time to time.
Believe it or not, reading can make writing easier. I read fiction, non fiction, biographies and blogs. Anything really. You will be surprised on what can spark ideas that you can use later as part of your writing.
Without going on and on here is a list of blogs I like to read:
1) A Newbie’s Guide To Publishing by JA Konrath – If you have been around the self publishing world long enough you can’t help be see this blog mentioned over and over. There is a reason for this there is a ton of information that covers just about everything about writing and publishing from someone who spends a ton of time doing just that.
2) E Pub Manifesto – This blog is rarely updated these days but many of the older posts are classics, you can follow the journey from relative self publishing newbie to someone who was able to quit their corporate job and focus on writing full time. With this transition there is a lot of information shared that can be tremendously helpful for those people just getting started today.
3) Tracey Writes Books – This is a monthly updated blog by Tracey Edwards. Tracey was a best selling traditional published author who has jumped ship to self publishing. Tracey is a modestly successful self publisher whose collections of books and income continues to grow month after month and it is exciting she is taking us along from the ride.
