Public Libraries: How Authors Can Increase Both Discoverability and Earnings – Written By Jane Friedman

Jane Friedman provides us with an excellent informative article about public libraries. Thank you so much, Jane.


When you see headlines discussing the staying power of print and the decline of ebooks, it’s important to remember those headlines are describing only sales of traditionally published books. Such headlines aren’t factoring in other market trends, such as digital subscription services, self-publishing, and—perhaps the most overlooked sector—library lending.

In 2017, OverDrive (the largest digital content catalog supplying libraries and schools) recorded 225 million ebook and audiobook checkouts around the world. To put that in context, consider that—during the same year—US traditional publishers reported 162 million ebooks sold.

What’s The Best Free Passive Voice Checker? – Written By Derek Haines

Derek Haines provides us with a list of the best free passive voice checkers online. Thank you very much, Derek.


Are you looking for a reliable passive voice checker?

That’s an excellent idea. You should always avoid using the passive voice in writing as much as you can.

But sometimes it isn’t easy to spot when you are doing a quick proofread of your text.

A much easier, and more accurate way to locate a passive sentence or passive construction is to use an online checker.

There are many free online tools you can use to help you. The bonus is that many of them will help you find other grammar errors and spelling mistakes as well.

Get the Most out of your Social links with Linktree – By Ari Meghlen

Ari Meghlen introduces us to ‘LinkTree’, a fabulous site where we can store our links and just share the LinkTree URL instead of constantly listing all our links everywhere. But let her explain:


I don’t know about you, but the number of places I can be found on the Internet seems to be growing.

While I don’t do much on all my social media platforms, it can be good to have a presence.

Thankfully, my blog allows me to automatically post on some of them, keeping them active enough but without me putting in more effort (no one has time for all that!)

But this means I have a ton of links to share. That’s where LinkTree comes in.

Trying to Make Your Story “Unique”? Beware of These Common Pitfalls – Written By Justin Attas

On the ‘Jane Friedman’ blog, Justin Attas wrote a guest post about three common pitfalls and how to avoid them. I find this an energetic, educational and interesting blog post which I thought I needed to share.


Today’s guest post is by novelist Justin Attas (@justinattas).


Writers always seek to produce a unique story, hoping readers will choose their book from the increasing pool of what’s available. But this can lead to creating a character or story that is “different” sheerly for the sake of, well, being different.

I’ve found three dangerous pitfalls for writers struggling to stand out:

  • “Strong” female characters
  • enemies-to-lovers storylines
  • Leading characters who are damaging, not damaged

Luckily for anyone struggling with one of these tempting story blackholes, there are ways out of all three.
