Setting The Hook: Book Blurbing for the Reluctant Author

By By Carolan Ivey, “The Blurb Wizard”

My book blurbing career started one summer night over Hurricane cocktails in the French Quarter of New Orleans. But that’s a story for another day. Er, what I remember of it, anyway…

I’ve written a little bit of everything: hard news, short stories, technical documentation, how-to software guides, and advertising/marketing copy. What do all these disparate jobs have in common? The ability to distill complex ideas into appealing, accessible chunks of information.

Are authors good at writing blurbs for their books? In general, the answer is . . .

Fun With Old Friends

By M. L. Buchman

Okay, I have a real problem with old friends…they cost me an immense amount of time.
Maybe not as much as new friends.
But…sheesh!

Let me give you an example from yesterday.

There I was, happily working along, building a new collection of short stories. Actually, three of them but two aren’t out yet.

So, there I was looking over fifteen different stories . . .

Receiving Critiques

By Barbara Binns

Critiquing another writer’s work can be a thankless task. Too often, writers are seeking praise. Maybe a few spelling or grammar corrections, but not . . .

What Editors Wish Writers Knew

By Julie Cameron

When I meet with a new client, one of the first things I am asked about is the difference between a Content Editor and a Copy Editor. Writers who decide to self-publish are particularly confused about when, and if, they need to hire different editors at each phase of the publishing process.

In a nutshell, . . .

To Market! To Market!

By Marcia King-Gamble

Maybe you’re a new author venturing into this crazy world of publishing, or maybe you’re established, and the pitiful advances you’ve been receiving, have you throwing your hands in the air, and wailing. Perhaps, you’re thinking of breaking into this crazy writing world and wondering how you can get some exposure. No one knows who you are. You have no name. How can you sell books? . . .

Self-publishing success tips from Tara Ames

As an emerging indie author of contemporary military and sports romances, I have enjoyed quite a journey into the world of self-publishing. Since I published my first book The Risk Taker, book 1, Alpha Aviators series back in August 2017, I’ve published a total of five books and two novellas, with three short stories featured in two anthologies and one boxed set. During this time, two of my works received awards, and I became a USA Today Bestselling Author.

Breaking Away from the Crowd

By Courtney Pierce

Today I have the opportunity to expand beyond my regular post as a Genre-ista to guest blog about this crazy writing biz. As I tap away on the draft of my seventh book, Big Sky Talk, I’m pleased to say that the hefty word count in my literary backpack has earned me the “write” to impart some wisdom. It’s a tough business that I now take quite seriously. It didn’t start out that way when I wrote my first book, Stitches.

I dive into a book—my own or someone else’s—with a load of cargo that sticks and prickles in my skin like emotional Velcro. Experiences with love, loss, betrayal, divorce, and death give us fuel to connect with like-minded characters. That’s why I pump my protagonists full of emotions based on my own experiences. And I have an animal (usually a dog or cat) in the mix to . . .
