Most people believe that writing is a solitary activity: you lock yourself in your office with your computer and your favorite form of caffeine and type away in silence, hoping that what is in your head effectively travels to your fingertips.
And that’s true. Sort of.
These days, writers are fortunate to have so much information readily available through the internet and social media. The problem with that is that it can be hard to sift through what’s truly valuable.
We want to help.
Through this Outskirts Press blog, Self-Publishing News, we like to consistently provide you with:
- Timely industry news, like this feature about the recent Mountains & Plains show
- Important writing and publishing advice, like this feature about copyediting
- Book contest deadlines and award-winning books
- Author interviews, like this one from Best Book of the Year author Andrew Ceroni
- Publishing polls, like this one to help author Adrian Matherne pick his cover
