Busy week for me, but I wanted to share a link to author J.A. Konrath's newest child. You may have seen his blog, A Newbie's Guide to Publishing, listed in the latest Writer's Digest, 101 Best Websites, article. As a follower, I have to say that it is one of the most informative blogs going, especially with regards to electronic publishing, industry trends, and new author survival tips.
At any rate, Joe has compiled many (if not all) of his best tips and advice into a new Kindle/eBook, The Newbie's Guide To Publishing. The book is cheap ($2.99 and worth it), however, you can download a free PDF version from his site, here. I would encourage all of you to check it out, and to become a follower of his blog. Assuming you're not Joe Rowling, Stephen King, or Stephanie Meyer, his advice might be the thing to help you maintain a writing career once it's started, which is no garunteed thing.
Have a good week, and happy writing!
