The publishing experts we follow have plenty of craft and business advice to offer.

Here are the ones that we thought were can't-miss for our authors:

  • Your story is amazing. But does it actually make sense?: Author/writing coach Susan DeFreitas suggests that authors identify what their characters' goals are and analyze whether their actions support those goals, as a way to ensure their stories make logical sense (Writer Unboxed).

  • What is literary fiction?: Writer's Digest editor Michael Woodson describes literary fiction as more of a style than a genre and lists off some of its characteristics ... and its appeal (Writer's Digest).

  • How to make the most of your critique group: Author Annie Rains discusses what she loves about having a writing critique group and what, in her opinion, makes for a successful one (Writer's Digest).

  • Picking a point of view for your story: Editor Tiffany Yates Martin runs through the basics of various points of view in fiction and suggests an exercise to help you decide which one works best for you (Jane Friedman).

  • Prolific writing, diversification, and using emerging technologies: Joanna Penn interviews fellow author Joseph Nassise about his creative and business processes (The Creative Penn).
