Sure, Ken Hagdal. I'm working on something I want to start self-publishing a year from this fall, so I'm going to want to start gathering information while I keep working on the writing aspect.

Do you make any money this way?

Comment by Aaron P on February 11, 2014 at 12:29am

Do you post chapters of your work online?
It was suggested to me to set up a blog with chapters to, "generate a buzz."

This is what I'm going with my novels on Noveljoy. You get a good amount of feedback, learn what wortks, what doesn't, and, at least on that site, you are sole owner of your work.  It also provides classes and means to self-publish.  Guys here should check it out.

Question for those writing a book:

Do you post chapters of your work online?
It was suggested to me to set up a blog with chapters to, "generate a buzz."

So, is it a good idea?

What I'm writing is nonfiction but I've feel learning the rules has made it easier for me to break them. ;-)

@ Pedro

It depends on what kind of writing you're doing. Are you a fiction writer? Non-fiction? Poet? There's all kinds of great stuff out there depending on your genre and goals.

@Pedro

I would recommend Joseph Campbell's "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" for writers of fiction. It sets up the archetypes and hero journey types that have stood the test of time in writing.

I was given some good advice from a women in publishing.
"Memorize Strunk and Whites Elements of Style."

I carried it with me for weeks and will do so again.
What other books would you say are essential for writers?

My new book, IMMORTALITY (and other short stories), is now available. Please feel free to check out the website, and tell me what you think of my gooberish promotional video :)
