Favorite Websites For Authors

This is the first post of a rolling blog tour on the topic of Favorite Mystery Movies. To read previous blog tours, check out Red Herrings, What is Your Method of Plotting?, Writer’s Conferences, and When Did You Know You Were A #Storyteller? Please take the time to visit the  next blog on today’s topic: KT Wagner’s http://www.northernlightsgothic.com. We hope you will take the time to read a few of the other roll topics, and also return Friday for a roll on Sub-Genres of Mysteries.

And now, on to my article on Favorite Websites for Authors. 

There are some really good websites out there for writers. One of my favorites is http://www.savvyauthors.com. This is a big site. There are thousands of articles, classes, and this year, even an online conference. You can join for free and get access to tons of info, or you can pay a $35.00 annual fee and get even more. And the people who run this site are very patient and generous.

Another fav is http://www.editordevil.com, which is a blog by Christine Fairchild, one of the primo teachers on the subject of writing.  Her articles are clear and concise, and she has a great sense of humor. I’ve taken a few of Christine’s classes and she is amazing.

And then there is http://www.shewrites.com. I love this site. Again, lots of articles, but what I love most about it are the forums, live chats and groups where women writers of like mind can talk about whatever problem they are facing, usually dealing with writing issues, but not always. And if the topic is one you aren’t interested in, you can move on to something else.

Here are a few more I tend to cruise around:

http://thecritiquecorner-writethatnovel.blogspot.com                                                                                                                             http://bookendslitagency.blogspot.com/                                                                                                                                                      http://www.plotwhisperer.blogspot.com/                                                                                                                                                    http://www.goodreads.com/                                                                                                                                                                               http://www.sandraparshall.com/write.html

I hope you get the oppotunity to visit these sites and enjoy the learning experiences, social activities, and even make some friends in the biz. And below, you’ll find the other members of the Rolling Mystery Blog Tour Ink who are on this roll. Please take time out to visit them.

  2. I love your cozy idea, Ryder. And I love reading humorous mysteries. It’s a great way to unwind. Writing them is even more fun. Get it a try.

    I enthusiastically echo the Savvy Authors recommendation! Tomorrow I start a one year novel workshop with Devon Ellington. Yeah!


  4. These sites sound great, I’ll definitely check them out, thanks!
