Erica Verrillo presents Hugh Howey’s Self-Publishing Success Story – Luck, Timing, and Writing for the Right Reasons posted at Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity, saying, “What is unusual about Hugh Howey is that he remained a self-published author on Amazon’s Kindle platform – even after he landed a major book deal with Simon and Schuster. He also turned down offers from agents – until one of them dangled Hollywood before him. Why did Howey retain his electronic rights? It turns out he had some very good reasons.”

Social Media

Chrys Fey presents Words to Cut Out of Your Writing posted at Write With Fey, saying, “In my recent post, How To Edit a Book, the second step says to “Cut it Out!” and refers to clichés and passive voice, but there are words you should cut out of your manuscript too.”
