New Release! Romance and Mystery Authors on Writing: Tips on the Writing Process, Publishing and Marketing

I was invited a while back to guest post on J.Q. Rose's blog during a series she did on writing tips. With her guests' permission, Janet has turned those tips into a Kindle e-book to help budding writers. 

Several authors contributed information on various aspects of the writing and publishing process, and Janet took those posts and organized them into a book by topic. The book sells for 99c, and the proceeds are donated to libraries.

Fifteen romance and mystery authors share writing tips they have gleaned from their experiences as “on-the-job” writers. The tips are organized into the main topics of writing, publishing, and marketing. The novelists also reveal the “light bulb moments” in their writing journey, questions they are asked most often, and the best advice on writing they have received. By offering their expertise, the authors hope to smooth the sometimes rocky road for new writers toward a rewarding career in writing.

Best wishes to you for success in your writing career!
