Writing Your Way: The Great American Novel Track by Julie Smith – FREE

Writing Your Way: The Great American Novel Track
Julie Smith
5 stars

WRITING YOUR WAY is all about finding your own best writing method, not a writing teacher’s idea of what’s right for you. It’s for the pre-published novelist who’s way past finding her inner writer and just wants some nuts-and-bolts advice that’ll help her through the plot knots and POV power struggles. Highlights include:

The definitive answer to the most popular question posed by pre-published
authors: How do I find an agent?
How to make that all-important first chapter sparkle. (The only one anybody reads if it doesn’t sparkle.)
Plotting without tears.
Laughs and giggles. The subject matter’s serious, but the touch is light.

JULIE SMITH is the author of two dozen novels and short story collections, and the winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel.

Giving The Bird: The Indie Author’s Guide to Twitter – FREE

Giving The Bird: The Indie Author’s Guide to Twitter
Benjamin Wallace
5 stars

Twitter is a powerful marketing tool for the indie author. Within its ranks are millions of readers looking for new authors and new books. But, simply broadcasting your link isn’t going to get you the attention you need.
This concise guide doesn’t focus on the nuts and bolts of Twitter. It will not tell you how to gain a kabillion followers. It will tell you what “they” don’t – what to tweet to build your brand as an author.
This guide is about how to sell yourself as a person and a brand, one tweet at a time, to an engaged group of followers.
So, why is the guide so short? Because, just like on Twitter, it doesn’t take a lot of words to communicate a powerful message.
