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:

  • Using life experiences to craft an authentic spy novel: CIA veteran and author Brittany Butler is back with more spy-novel advice, this time on channeling your own encounters into vivid fiction (Writer's Digest).

  • How to sell your book at the correct price: Penny Sansevieri and Amy Cornell spend an episode of their podcast on how to strike the balance between making your book accessible and making it profitable for you (Author Marketing Experts). 

  • 5 reasons to write your "taboo" stories: Writer, book coach, and editor Katie Bannon shares five ways in which "taboo" experiences can make your memoir that much more compelling (Jane Friedman).

  • Using social occasions to elevate your story: Author John J. Kelley invites his fellow writers to think about how a big event can offer plot and character development opportunities in fiction (Writer Unboxed).

  • Publishers prepare for showdown with Microsoft, Google over AI: Sources familiar with a publishing trade group have told reporters that executives are researching just how much their content has been used to "train" big-tech's AI tools and what payments — or consequences — they might seek (The Wall Street Journal, via The Passive Voice).
