I get asked a lot about the writing process. What I think people are actually asking is about how I did it—published or wrote the books. I say this because, back when I was trying to find a way as an author, I was searching for a mentor, connections inside the writing world. I had those same questions. Thus, I don’t mind answering, as I can now be the person I once sought.
Links and Resources is an information page pertaining to my process on the writing journey. These are the sites that I frequent while working on or promoting a new work. An author must make use of all possible resources available to promote a work and enhance their skills. The tools and resources can be as simple as your favorite ‘Baby Names‘ site from which to give your character’s name more meaning, or pages on common cultural symbols where you can find just the right object to add depth to a story line. However, it’s not always convenient to dig up these items. Who has the time?
The items included on the resources tab were collected over years of my career. I believe in helping new writers as they make this same journey. The wisdom of working with agents and editors, and coming to the decision to be an independent artist is something that needs to be passed down. Indie publishing is the future in our high tech and connected society. Traditional routes still exist, but have become impossible to accomplish, let alone navigate without arbitrary tenures.
It is my hope this information will set the would be author on the right path to fulfilling their career goals, regardless of the path they choose.
I get emails all the time from institutions begging to be included in my list. If I haven’t used the site, it doesn’t make the cut without affirmations from close colleagues. It’s just too important not to waste your time. False leads are one of the biggest trajectory killers an individual faces in pursuing their goals.
Now that you’ve browsed the page, save it in your bookmarks. Don’t forget to subscribe, because I’ll include tips on what you should be doing in regards to your writing. Missing out on those insights could hold you back.
