Some Important Websites for Fiction Writers.
To make this blog a little more helpful and comprehensive, I thought I should include some links to other sites that are really helpful for writers.
Here is Fiction Factor- A great free online magazine for writers. http://www.fictionfactor.com/
Here is an amazing blog about how authors can and should use social media for promotion. http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/about/
The site Brenda Hiatt’s Show Me the Money is the only one of its kind that I know of, that attempts to give information about income from romance writing. It is somewhat out of date though, so I would say the money is maybe slightly better than the site indicates, for some successful publishers.
I have heard that it is the median that is the more accurate representation of what you can expect. Her information is only as accurate as the information sent to her, so it’s up to authors to keep her informed of sales data.
Emily Veinglory talks about erotic romance publishers here. She attempts to give at least a vague indication of the money that might be made. Again she only has a very small sample. She can’t be expected to be that accurate, and she relies on authors to send her information regarding sales. So please send info on your novels to Emily Veinglory.
Writer Unboxed- Another great blog about the craft and business of fiction
Here is a good short explanation about who the Big Five (formally six) are. http://www.criticalpages.com/tag/the-big-six-publishers/
And a blog by David Gaughran about a sad, dark, underside to the publishing world. http://davidgaughran.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/the-author-exploitation-business/
November 11th-18th I was interviewed at http://fierceromance.blogspot.co.nz/ where I’m giving away a copy of the novella Waking the Witch.
