Cocky-Blocked: How to Nuke Your Brand From Orbit
“Call me cocky for even weighing in on this issue (at your own peril). But, seriously, folks. It’s rare to run across something so epically wrong AND foolish and…ironically, cocky. As an author branding expert, I’d be remiss NOT to say something about Cockygate (though I seriously hate having to).”

Judith Briles on The Book Shepherd
How to NOT Sabotage Your Author, Writer and Publishing Career
“Not a week goes by that I don’t get a variety of “How do I do it?” questions that pertain to either writing, publishing or book marketing. Whew. None are one sentence responses.”

Nathan Bransford on Nathan Bransford
Everything writers need to know about pitching their book
“Like it or not, pitching your book is one of the most important things you’ll do as an author.”

Ruth Ann Nordin on Self-Published Authors Helping Other Authors
Writers Shouldn’t Have to Fear the Future
“This post is inspired by a very unfortunate situation that has developed recently in the indie author community.”
