Recommended Resources for Writers and Editors

Why a Resources Page?

Here on this Resources page you will find only people, products, and services that I have used and recommend. I’d recommend these to my mother. In some cases, which I have clearly identified, I have arranged it so they are affiliates or partners with me, Robin Martin Editorial, and Two Songbirds Press. In these cases, at no additional cost to you, I will receive some small compensation for you linking to them from my site. I sure appreciate that you trust me with your projects and also trust me to suggest superior resources for you to reach your goals.

Sometimes we need to stop looking at text. Sometimes we need to de-stress. Sometimes we have a big unused monitor on one side of our desk. In these cases, I highly recommend you visit the California Academy of Sciences live animal webcams. You can watch penguins if you prefer them to fish.

Self-publishing Boot Camp Guide, 4th edition

Self-publishers have a tremendous number of resources out there now, but which ones are tested by objective real users, and which ones are thinly veiled ad campaigns for a specific expensive offshore publishing package?

Carla King is the real deal, a writer who, many years ago, embarked on her self-publishing journey. She’s tried everything and has been teaching aspiring self-publishers the lessons she learned the hard way.

Her latest edition of the Self-Publishing Boot Camp Guide is available here, and I recommend it to anyone thinking about going on this ride.

I recommend Duotrope to research lit mags and track your submissions.

Duotrope is a subscription-based service for writers and artists (only $5/mo) that offers an extensive, searchable database of current fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and visual art markets, a calendar of upcoming deadlines, a personal submission tracker, and useful statistics compiled from the millions of data points we’ve gathered on the publishers and agents they list.
