Written on the internet
- Our weekly roundup of links we hope you’ll find interesting and useful:
- The water-cooler conversation in publishing this week is all about author Barry Eisler turning down a $500,000 advance in favor of self-publishing his books… in the same week that Amanda Hocking, self-publishing millionaire, sought and got a traditional book deal. Mike Shatzkin considers the ramifications of the Eisler news, and Kassia Krozser looks at why both choices can be right.
- Author Justine Musk has some great advice on how to get that novel written: get out of your own way (hat tip to Gwenda).
- Author Stephanie Ebbert talks about how to proceed after a critique (start with a long deep breath).
- Author Stacy Pershall had a long road to landing an agent and getting published. The moral of her story: don’t give up.
- And finally — authors are helping authors at Fiction Writers Co-op. Writers, think about how you can help each other. Together, we are stronger!
Enjoy your weekend. Write something wonderful!
