I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.

Summer’s coming! Well, theoretically. The weather here doesn’t quite agree, and we still need to make it through spring, but we’ll get there.

In the meantime, let’s pretend it’s summer by getting lost in some summer-focused books. One S’more Summer, by Beth Merlin, doesn’t come out until the end of May, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add it to your list now. I happily added it to mine–and I’m also happy to be helping reveal the cover today. So if you’re ready, click on through and check it out.

That struggle was why I wanted to attend the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild’s Giving Your Characters Character workshop in early March. A big chunk of my V&L revision needs relate back to character development, and I thought this workshop could help make the revisions a bit easier.

I’m happy to say that I learned quite a bit at the workshop. Click on through to get a quick run-down.

I don’t know about you, but I definitely have an interest in the New Adult genre. I’ve really enjoyed the books I’ve read so far that fall into that category, and I’m always adding more to my “to-read” list.

Moments of Beauty, by J.B. Heller, will definitely make it onto that list. The summary did a pretty great job of catching my interest, but the cover? Guys, I love this cover. And I’m quite happy to be helping to reveal it today.

If you’re ready, click on through to take a look. Then read to the bottom of the post, where you’ll find a special giveaway hosted by the author.
