Writing and Self-Publishing Resources

Quick note: I’m starting to get a lot of requests to add resources to this page. At this time I am not going to do so because this is just a page of resources I know well and have found personally helpful. I am unwilling to add resources to this page that I haven’t had the opportunity to vet thoroughly and at this time I don’t have time to do that for unknown-to-me resources.

If you’re thinking about getting into writing or self-publishing, there are a lot of resources out there to help you get started.

Here’s a reading list with my favorite books on writing and writing craft as well as links to my own books on writing and self-publishing: A Reading List for Writers

AMS Ads for Authors and Excel for Self-Publishers are also available as video courses. I will note here that as of January 2019 the AMS book and course are outdated because Amazon has updated their interface, but the basic discussion about how AMS work is still relevant.

Also, some Masterclasses that I really enjoyed (available at masterclass.com):

Neil Gaiman

Will Wright

Dan Brown

Margaret Atwood

Shonda Rhimes

Aaron Sorkin

A few blogs that I really like:

Patricia C. Wrede (an author who posts every Wednesday about writing craft)

Kristine Kathryn Rusch (an author who usually has a business blog post every Thursday)
