Tips for Writers



I’ve collected some helpful articles for writers and authors over the last two weeks – something for everyone. From editing to blogging, to self-publishing and marketing – Enjoy!

Thanks to Nicholas Rossis for this excellent information on extra income for authors




How about a new social media platform I came across on Janice Wald’s blog – Mostlyblogging.com

Do you follow the Bookdesigner? If you’d like to learn about what makes a good book cover, Joel Friedlander, a.k.a. The Bookdesigner has an open invitation for authors to submit their new book cover to be critiqued by him. I’ve learned a lot from him on what elements a cover requires by reading critiques of the books entered, and I’ve entered all of my own over the years. I will add that I tied for nonfiction winning book of the month a few years ago with my book – Words We Carry, and happily settled for the Gold Star for a close second.

    1. You are most welcome Nicholas. And thanks for always scouting out the latest in Amazon for us! Yes, you should enter your books as you publish with Joel. I believe you can only enter most recent books as there is a cut off date. Go ahead an enter your Toaster book. πŸ™‚


  1. Thanks again for including a link to the most recent of my blogging tips posts, Debby. It’s very kind of you. I appreciate it very much.
    Have a lovely weekend, and don’t forget to put your clocks back (if you do that in your part of the world? Is it this weekend? They went back in the UK last weekend.)
    Hugs to you.


    1. My pleasure Hugh. I try to cultivate links that will benefit writers and bloggers and your blogging tips are most helpful! Thanks for the reminder, yes, we used to turn back clocks the same as you, but new law came in 2 years ago adding the extra week. I’ll look forward to the extra hour back LOL πŸ™‚ xoxo


  2. There you go again, always shining a light on my next step. I’m thinking ahead to book marketing and appreciate the tips. Today I contacted a librarian about sharing my book when it is published next year. I’m glad I live in a big city in that regard.

    Thanks, heaps! I will have to bookmark this post for future reference, FOR SURE!


    1. So glad I could be of help Marian. Marketing is a never-ending journey for us authors. I’m sure you will revert back to some of these helpful posts by some generous writers. πŸ™‚


  3. WOW Debby what a wonderful collection of links of valuable tips you have gathered all in one place.. I will be saving this page to my browser Debby for future references…
    One never knows when I will get my own act together… ❀

    Sending HUGS your way


  4. Thank you for the useful links, Debby! That book cover design critique sounds interesting! I had no idea this also exists, as I had only heard of first chapter critiques and such. Congrats in doing so well with one of your covers! Putting all the advice you read into action seems to do the trick for you! πŸ™‚
