21 February 2014

Steamy Chapter 20, Hawaiian Escape Steamy Chapter 20, Hawaiian Escape

Well it’s been another hectic week. And here I am on the eve of going away for a week (mostly to write) and I find myself once again finishing my weekly Fiction Focus at flippin’ four am! Lol. I hope you like what I post each week – I mainly include links for more info and some fascinating facts.


Deb’s Steamy Chapter is finally available to download – see below for info if you missed the newsletter going out late on 21st!


Top bloggers for writers – who are some of the best?

As you’ll probably guess, I get a lot of my info about books and writing from other blogs and info I find on the internet. I’m happy to share as much as I can, but as you can imagine, there’s always far more than I can include here. Well, there just so happens to be a fab hit list of top ten bloggers for writers, on the writeToDone site from a while back . Soooo worth going to read them and sign up for a few – this is how we learn and keep on our toes right?

Then if you find something you think I’D like to read, you can leave me a comment below with the link! I’m going to sign up for Making a Living Writing, and Romance University, amongst others. What about you? Joanna Penn’s one of my faves and she’s on this particular list too. Any beginners can also look back at my archive (bottom left) to last summer where we featured quite a lot of info about where to begin if you’re thinking of self-publishing but you don’t know where to start. 


Controversy Continues over the recent Author Earnings Survey

If you’re a writer, did you read it? If you’re a self-publisher, you’re bound to be fascinated by a clever look at Amazon’s sales which created a storm in the world of authors last week. Click here for full report.  Well the debate rages on! Some statistics geeks (and I thought I was bad!) pontificating on about how Hugh Howey’s report made certain assumptions and shouldn’t have (well, he kind of made it clear that he had) and that more research must be done (er, he kind of said that it should be) and up against the nay-sayers and critics, here’s one of my favourite responses to them all, putting it all in context – Jaye also helps to make Hugh’s stats a bit clearer if you didn’t follow them very easily! Click here to read it.

If you’re one of my 70 or so regulars reading this RiWiSi blog weekly, do leave me a comment below and let me know what your opinion of it all is and whether you’re a fellow self-publisher like me!
