Joe Konrath (thriller author) has been running a truly excellent blog for many years now called A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing.
Take the time to visit and read back through the archives if you’re a writer, creative person or general words-in-an-interesting-row kind of person.
He’s a published author who backs up what he says with hard data (which is refreshing) and has a lot of well-thought out ideas around writing, publishing and the publishing business.
There are also FREE ebooks for download on his site! (Including that one over there).
Check out his Kindle publishing exploits also (he made $4200 in March 2010 from Kindle ebooks alone!).
Here are all his free ebooks and here is The Newbie’s Guide to Publishing for free download.
