Wednesday links: Author safety and writing a second novel

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.

  1. Author Safety, from Books & Such Literary Management: To be honest, something I haven’t thought much about is the potential for privacy issues once I’m published. This post gives me–and likely others–some things to consider. Excerpt: “You might also end up with a group of people who dislike you or your book. Most of the time these people limit themselves to negative reviews or pointed emails, but a person might try something more personal.”
  2. 5 Things All Writers Should Know When Writing a Second Novel, from Writer’s Digest: Writing your second novel may seem as straight-forward as writing your first, but it could actually be quite different. Excerpt: “What I’ve discovered is that the process of writing what’s next is different, whether you’re continuing a series or starting with a clean canvas. It’s an experience that requires learning to adapt and grow—in our processes and on the page.”
