Do you have an up-to-date author bio ready for any occasion? Here's how to write a one-line byline, a one paragraph bio, and a one-page bio that makes you sound professional and newsworthy, whether you're published or not. You never know when somebody will want to reprint an article, you'll win a story contest, or your blogpost will get picked up by another website. You don't want to have to dash off that bio at the last minute. Write it now!

NaNoWriMo can be an exciting, invigorating experience for some writers. But for others, it can be a disaster. If you're sailing along with NaNo, that's fantastic, but if you find you're feeling frustrated and depressed, step away. Your mental health may be at stake.

Pronoun is Closing. Not good news for Indie Authors. I'm so glad I never got around to using them. Sometimes procrastination pays off....

Everybody tells us authors MUST be on social media. But if you're on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus, and maybe a blog or two…when the heck do you write books? Social Media manager +Chris Syme tells you how. And she's got a GREAT deal on her marketing books…absolutely FREE!!

US bookstores are closing, but Canadians seem to think they can sell books here. Or maybe it's just that they want to make sure they have something to read when they're here on vacation?

Amazon helps book pirates while penalizing real publishers. From the New Publishing Standard: Amazon takes down a real book published by Pan-Macmillan and leaves up the pirated version.

This week Ruth Harris has some great tips for connecting with your reader's emotions by use of historical detail to trigger memory.
