  1. Hi Debby – one day I might need those tools … but not at the moment – but I like learning about them … cheers and have a peaceful and relaxed run in to Christmas and the festive break – Hilary


  2. Anne Allen’s item looks very helpful; bookmarked it for next year’s reference. Doris Heillman’s is scary–but the link to the top ten seemed better than the three in item. Brigid Gallagher’s article is one I’m not sure I’m ready for–marketing to publishers, libraries, booksellers or agents.


  3. Anne’s posts always have the most inspiring, wonderful practical posts. Thank you for sharing and may you have the most blessed of Christmas’s and a most productive New Year dear friend. I appreciated all your support this past year, ❀


  4. As always, Thank you for compiling and sharing these writer’s tips, Debby. I was mostly drawn to the last post, about getting your self-published book in Publishers Weekly. It looks like it’s worth the $149, based on Brigid’s experience! Have you ever done this, Debby?

    Happy weekend!


    1. No, I haven’t looked into it yet, but I have a list of explorations for the new year. And once I dive in, I’ll be sure to share my experience. πŸ™‚ x
