Starting today, and continuing for a full seven days, the (normally $3.99) Kindle edition of How to be a Writer in the E-Age: A Self-Help Guide is on sale for only $0.99.
It was written as a collaboration with my old and good friend Anne R. Allen, a respected publishing industry blogger and successful author. Together we covered all the angles of a changing industry, filling in any gaps in the other's experience (for example, I've had an agent so long that I wasn't very familiar with the cutting edge modern submission process) and bouncing our often-humorous styles off each other to create what we feel is a pretty complete walk through our industry.
The book has gotten great reviews from both new and experienced writers. It's jam-packed with information, and just about everyone who's read it says they come out with something useful.
And at $0.99, how can you miss? (UK readers, I'm happy to say it's only 0.99 for you, too, you just need a different link. THIS ONE.) If you take me up on the offer and try it, please let me know what you think. And if you're not a writer, you can always pass the news along to someone who is.
Usually I say, "Happy reading!" Maybe in this case I should say, "Happy submitting!" If there is such a thing. Try the book. It might help.
