Writing Tip Wednesday – Literary Devices Editing and Blurbs

Welcome to the last video in The Perfect Story Series. This time I’m gonna go through a few literary devices I use often and talk a little about editing and blurb writing.

I have […]

Taking Advice from Other Authors Marketing Tip Monday

Taking Advice from Other Authors Marketing Tip Monday

Here’s a problem I’ve come across in self-publishing. You don’t know what you don’t know. I sometimes browse writing forums. I lurk in places writers congregate. Some of these places I’ve been hanging out in for a while. Some of them are sorta new. And one thing that has bugged me since the very beginning is the way everyone touts themselves an expert. Well, I’m gonna have to object. There are very few people who actually know what they’re talking […]

So I’m gonna tip you this week, but it’s gonna be really quick because my book is due […]

That means Christmas is only six months away. ME: So? BRAIN: So? What are you planning? You know you need a plan or the whole month of December just goes to hell. ME: I had that plan four months ago, so chill. And I did. The […]
