RESOURCES FOR WRITERS

I update this list from time to time.  Let me know if there is a dead link that needs to be banished.  I’m trying to keep an updated list of writing resources for not only my readers, but myself.

Please don’t email me asking to put another “how-to-website” link up here. I get several requests for them, and I can’t post everyone’s. There’s two on the list, but that’s it no more. Other suggestions are welcome.

I have to plug FTDB. People are raving about it: Finish The Damn Book

Also, if you’re an indie author, read this right now.

Places to get some publicity for your book

Groups You Should Join  – Email me with your group and why it should be included.

Inspirational Blogs – Read some of this before starting your journey in freelancing

A List of Guest Blogs That Pay – 50 Blogs that Pay Writers

For Help Building a Website or Blog – I put these up for a baseline, and will NOT be posting more how-to-website links, just these two.

Here’s some advice on submitting stories to literary mags: mandiehines.com

Submission Sourcing – The fastest way to find places for submission.

Job Boards – Hit and miss job postings, but worth a look for sure.

Freelancing Mills – You might have to search around a bit for decent paying gigs, but mostly worth a daily look.

  1. Just want to say thanks for sharing these resources. Will be useful once I start writing my own book or e-books or perhaps a novel. For now, I’ll just stick writing the materials for my own site which I’ve also built and there’s still a lot to do.
