Resources for authors

This is a masterlist I’ve been building for some years. It contains quick information and links about essential things: editing, marketing, getting reviews, etc. It was getting pretty long and I wanted to make it easier to use. So I thought hey, why not put it on my author blog? I can make it fancy and you can read it too.

I don’t include links about book covers because I do that myself. I’ve heard good things about Canva though. You can also go to sites like 99designs for cover design and cover art.

Disclaimer: a link does not mean an endorsement. This is just stuff I’ve found. If you think something should be added or removed, send me an email – geoff@glichy.com

Prices are in USD whenever possible. Links and prices are subject to change. Information is current as of March 2016.
