Wednesday links: Shelving your novel and deciding where to self-publish

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. It’s Okay to Shelve Your Novel, from G.K. Sihat: Are you having trouble with your current novel, to the point where you’re considering setting it aside permanently–or at least for a significant amount of time? That’s okay. Most writers do. Excerpt: “I know writers that shelved five, six, seven manuscripts before finding one they believe is ready for the world. I also know writers that have taken manuscripts off their shelf and rewritten them years later, publishing them not long after.”
  2. How to decide where to publish your books when self-publishing, from Nathan Bransford: Deciding on the best place to self-publish your book takes a lot of thought. Here, Nathan Bransford provides some an overview to consider. Excerpt: “Here’s why it’s important to decide where you’re publishing as early as possible. The format(s) and distribution methods you choose influences several key steps in the self-publishing process.”
