Indie Author Resources
When it comes to writing, publishing, and editing, it can be difficult to find resources that are trustworthy, and it can take hours to search around the web for something useful.
I'm here to make that easier for you! I have compiled a list of resources that I trust.
I will be updating these lists regularly, so please let me know if I should add anything or if there's a broken link.
