  1. Thanks as ever, Elizabeth, for these great links. I see so many related to the ‘business’ side of writing; I think that’s a Sign. Authors need to remember that if you’re going to sell books, you do have to think of it all in business terms.

  2. Hi Elizabeth,

    Thank you for including me in this great list.
    Many authors, myself included, are still having to learn about social media and as Margot says, the business side of things. The links here are really useful and many show what to avoid doing, which will save people A LOT of time and effort!

    All the best,


    1. Mark–I’m with you…always learning. That’s mostly because the business and the social media and publishing itself is always changing (sigh!) Thanks so much for the kind words and for coming by.
