Seven Writing Links -- volume 101

For those of you participating in NaNo this year, congratulations for taking the plunge. Although I considered entering, I couldn't justify starting yet another story when I haven't finished the other two I'm working on right now. Still, I miss the excitement of NaNo.

Have a great NaNo weekend and enjoy the links.

Five Ways for Self-published Authors to Use Video to Promote Self-Published Books


  1. Surprised Amazon is making the move to retail stores.
    I could've used those sequel marketing tips...

  2. I read the article on Amazon's store. Wonder how it's going to do.

  3. Good links. I like the list for sequels.

  4. Thanks for the links! I see more and more people using video. I don't think I could do it, but maybe I could have my kid read a page from one of my stories!

  5. I was really surprised about Amazon building a physical store. Going to save the article about the sequels. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Love the list of links. Thanks. And who said you had to start a brand new novel. I know many an author that is completing something they started. No cheating on the word count though. :-)

    Maybe, next year.
