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

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

  • Could a raptor play the protagonist role?: Sue Coletta uses the complexity of this powerful predator to underscore how writers can take a character that seems villainous and make them the hero (Writers Helping Writers).

  • How to plan your self-published book: Writers who prefer not to fly by the seat of their pants will enjoy this guide from the Alliance of Independent Authors. (Pantsers, just be sure to check back — your turn is coming.)

  • How to summer up your romance novel: Of course, any book you read this time of year can be a beach read, but there's something especially perfect about setting your romance in summertime, and author Ali Brady shares her tips for this combination (Writer's Digest).

  • How to write for a general audience: Author, book coach and historian Christina Larocco provides tips on taking the research you've done on a topic and ensuring that it feels like a book, not an info dump of all the facts you've gathered (Jane Friedman).
