Emotional Beats Launch

I’ve shared several helpful posts by bestselling author Nicholas C. Rossis, and not without reason. Not only is he an excellent author of both speculative (sci-fi) fiction and children’s books, but he’s also always been magnanimous in sharing what he’s learned about writing and self-publishing with other authors on his website. His latest book, Emotional Beats: How to Easily Convert your Writing into Palpable Feelings, is another generous endeavour to provide advice for his fellow authors. Not being an author myself, I bought the Kindle edition; however, for serious authors, the paperback edition may be useful for flipping back and forth to useful advice. Read a sample on his site about portraying anger, or check out the preview on Amazon.com.

First site guide | From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksContinuing my paying-it-forward series of posts, I present to you today another one of my new friends, Duke Vukadinovic.

You may or may not be aware that in my day job, I’m a web developer whose company, Istomedia, has developed over 450 websites and blogs since 1995. This, however, is an expense that many authors would rather not make. And yet, they still need to have an online presence. So, what are they to do?

Duke has come up with a great resource, the First Site Guide. Freelancers – and writers in general – will find there all they need to build their first website on their own, along with helpful tips, how-tos, and loads of free advice.

Take it, Duke!
