Giving thanks for author resources

PenpaperIt’s that time of year, and I wanted to give thanks for the lists of author resources that are out there!

I wanted to mention a few of them that feature Edit for Indies. First and foremost, I was particularly impressed by a blog called “This College Dropout: Resources for Indie Writers.” There are 150 organizations on the list. They offer promotional services or cover design or editing or publishing assistance. You name it, it’s there. All I know is that it’s compiled by a guy called Charles Franklin, and he obviously spent a long time putting together this exhaustive list!

It would be remiss not to mention World Literary Cafe, which has a listing of editors in its Author Forums. I put my name and info up there when the list was quite small. It’s now rather large, and it’s a great place to browse through in search of the perfect editor for you.

Dan Poynter‘s ParaPublishing site offers a ton of resources for independent writers. I’m included in his list of editors and proofreaders.

Author JM Madden has compiled a huge list of cover artists and editors here. I’ve used three of the cover artists she mentions for my own books (Go On Write, Fantasia Frog, Book Graphics), so I know she’s on the money šŸ™‚

A sincere thanks goes out to these folks! And feel free to chip in in the comments if YOU have a particular listing you love to use.
