An updated list of Frequently Asked Questions is in the works, along with some new material to help you become a smarter publisher. I’ll be adding those to the site regularly, so visit soon, visit often. In the meantime, here are some things to get you started.

Read my interview with James Scott Bell, one of my favorite writers and writing teachers. Jim is living the good life as a full-time writer and writing instructor. He writes both fiction and nonfiction, and is a staunch advocate of the hybrid publishing model — a blend of traditional and self-publishing. Jim also happens to be a heck of a nice guy. I urge you to follow him on Twitter (@jamesscottbell), and if you’re interested in self-publishing, snag his book Self-Publishing Attack! The 5 Absolutely Unbreakable Laws for Creating Steady Income Publishing Your Own Books.

In addition to my direct client work, I have the privilege of working with author consultant Dan Blank of WeGrowMedia. Dan helps writers and other creative professionals share their stories and connect with their audience. He has worked with hundreds of people through online courses, consulting, and workshops. He’s a regular speaker at the Writer’s Digest and Romance Writers of America annual conferences, among others. And he’s worked with many large organizations such as Random House, Hachette Book Group, Sesame Workshop, Workman Publishing, J. Walter Thompson, Abrams Books, Writers House, The Kenyon Review, Writer’s Digest, Library Journal, and many others.
We’re doing lots of cool things at WeGrowMedia, and have been hard at work creating new courses and offerings for authors and creative professionals. Two of our core — and very popular — courses are Launch Your Email Newsletter, and Find & Engage, which is a 4-week course on finding an audience for your work. Our next session of Find & Engage begins October 19. I’ll be sending out updates on courses, so be sure to add your name to my mailing list (bottom of the page) if you’re interested in what we’re doing at WeGrowMedia. (You can also sign up for the WeGrowMedia newsletter!)
