I’ve been writing stories for over 20 years. I’ve been self-publishing for over ten. I’ve also been lecturing for more than ten years. Over time, I’ve created a wealth of material on these topics and I’ve often considered collecting in a library of some sort for writers and authors who were looking for advice.
I finally did it. I established a separate section on my website dedicated to all this material, most of it previously published but scattered all over the web and some of it new, created expressly for this new project.
The Writers and Authors Resource Center (WritersARC) is a unique collection of material on three topics: fiction writing, self-publishing and book marketing. The mind-map shows the organization of the website.
The Notion website has auxiliary pages for material that can’t be added to a WordPress site. Currently, it has a Kanban-style task list covering a self-publishing and book marketing project. More material will follow.
You can find the main page for this collection here: http://hankquense.org/wp/writers-and-authors-resource-center/
This webpage has links to all the other pages.
Currently, it has the following pages:
• Basic book marketing
• Fiction writing books
• Fiction writing articles
• Sampler: How to Self-publish and Market a Book
• Publishing and marketing articles
• Publishing and marketing books
• Udemy classes
• Guides & checklists
• Sampler: Creating Stories
• Project Plan: Self-publishing and Marketing a Book
You may want to bookmark the main page and come back because I plan to add a lot more material to the WritersARC. This planned material won’t be the usual, run-of-the-mill type of stuff. It will be different.
For vacations, Hank and Pat usually visit distant parts of the galaxy. Occasionally, they also time-travel.
Besides writing novels, Hank lectures on fiction writing, publishing and book marketing. He is most proud of his talk showing grammar school kids how to create a short story. He used these lectures to create an advanced ebook with embedded videos to coach the students on how to create characters, plots and settings. The target audience is 4th to 7th graders. The book’s title is Fiction Writing Workshop for Kids.
Thanks for what you’re doing, Hank. It’s a cold and lonely world for most writers, so having these resources is a huge help.
It’s a gamble. Will anyone use them? Will the stuff be useful? I don’t know, but I’m doing it anyway
