Writers & Authors Resource Center

The Writers and Authors Resource Center now has over 25 pages of content.

And it’s growing. To help authors and fiction writers navigate the site, I put together a free overview booklet that explains what the Writers ARC is about and what is on the site along with links to that content.

The material on the site includes articles, books, guides, SWOT analyses, lectures, workshops, Udemy classes, Youtube videos and more.

Lectures & Workshops available

 

A new section of material is now available on Writers & Authors Resource Center.

The main page for this content is located here

Lectures consist of all the slides used in the lecture plus the speaking notes (or script, if you like). Together, they form a valuable tool about the subject of the lecture.

Workshops consisted of a series of text lectures.  Originally, the workshop was designed to emailed out one per day for one or two weeks. Now you get them all at once, or read them one per day.  It’s your choice how you want to use them.

Self-publishing and marketing tools

Here are a few tools to simplify your life.

Marketing a book while the book is still getting self-published makes for a complicated project. This is especially true if the author is self-publishing for the first time. My book How to Self-publish and Market a Book address this situation by integrating the publishing and marketing tasks into a single unified project. Despite all the directions in the book, I felt the project need additional ways to control and manage it. For this purpose I constructed a spreadsheet that offers a way to just that. You can find more information about this tool at http://hankquense.org/wp/writers-and-authors-resource-center/guides-and-checklists/

 

 

But spreadsheets aren’t for everyone. That fact led me to develop another tool that will appeal to some. It’s a Kanban style project board template. It has every publishing and marketing task stacked into two separate columns. When you start a task, you can drag it into a “In progress” column and then into a “Completed: column when the task is finished. Thus you have a visual indication of the project’s progress. Kanban boards such as this can’t be inserted into a WordPress website. Consequently. I had to develop the tool on the Notion.so website. To use the board, you’ll have to get a Notion account, but that is free. Once you have the account, you can duplicate my template and paste it into your own Notion workspace.  Here is a screen shot of the template:
