Twitterific Writing Links

by Elizabeth S. Craig, @elizabethscraig

Twitterific writing links are fed into the Writer’s Knowledge Base search engineBlog (developed by writer and software engineer Mike Fleming) which has over 30,000 free articles on writing related topics. It’s the search engine for writers.

My blog readers are being offered a special discount on author and editor CS Lakin’s Targeting Genre for Big Sales course, now open for enrollment. It launches March 1, and if you register before March 15, you’ll get $100 off the regular course price of $397 by clicking here or by entering TARGET22 as your code.  This looks to be a good course for writers who are looking to optimize keywords, product description, etc. on their Amazon book page for reader discoverability.
