I came across a nice thread on Quora (here and here) about common mistakes in fiction. I am sharing here the ones that I agreed with. I found particularly interesting to see which mistakes different people mentioned, as many of them contradicted each other. This makes perfect sense to me: reading is a highly personal […]
Thanks to Nicholas C. Rossis for an excellent offering of author resources. Reblogged at GeezWriter.com by Stephen Geez.
In my last post, I wrote about some of Dave Chessson’s, aka Kindlepreneur’s, free author resources, including his Free Amazon Book Description Generator.
Today, I have more free author resources that can prove invaluable to your author promos, courtesy of my author friend, Effrosyni Moschoudi. She has compiled a list of free author resources that include two invaluable Word files:
- Dozens of websites and Facebook groups to submit your books for FREE! (Word file) and
- A FREE task list for your promo (Word file)
Even better, she keeps the lists regularly updated. These two were only updated last week, so you can rest assured they’re as up-to-date as humanly possible!
