Additional Articles / Resources

Over the year, I have referred people to several articles and resources. Perhaps some will help you, too! 

Alexandra Franzen, a Portland-based writer, pondered this same question (traditional publisher vs. self) and offer some great food for thought.

The Write Practice is a blog I have contributed to and that helps writers of all levels keep at it. A great place to ask questions and get advice!

I'm also a fan of Jeff Goins who is encouragement personified for aspiring writers everywhere. Again, tons of tools and advice for getting published.

John Kremer is a longtime advocate for the independent author and has a jam-packed website of resources.

This is an excellent article explaining the various formats of children's books!
