When I started writing my fantasy novel I had no clue about writing and the publishing industry. I have learned so many things the hard way that I want to be able to help other writers so maybe they won’t have to learn from the same mistakes I made. Here you will find a list of blogs, books, websites, etc that I have found helpful in my writer’s journey. Check back often as I will keep adding to the list.
