Weekly Links: 6 Aug 2014

Hey, here are some links that I found really worth reading this week. Hope you find them as interesting as I did.

I know I probably want see my new book covers here but it is a great place to go for cover art inspiration. 

3 TED talks that uncover the secrets of storytelling - really worth reading and watching!

Discoverability - nothing new here but definately worth reading anything by Hugh Howey - thanks Zee.

A business plan for writers - again thanks Zee.

Are our kids getting worse at creative writing - 6 sci-fi and fantast books to share with the App generation.

July earnings reports for self-publishers and publishers alike - again from Hugh Howey

A very interesting and humourous Slashdot interview with Neil Stephenson.

When I started researching YA two years ago these weren't cliches so much back then - can definately agree that they are now.

What I'm reading this week: Fairy Tale retellings

The third of the UnEnchanted series, of which the first is free:

'Cress' by Melissa Meyers - again the third in the series of the Lunar Chronicles:

'Snow White Sorrow' by - A darker retelling of Snow White, I'm not sure about this one, but I'm giving it a go - will let you know how it goes next week.

And of course the tried and true, fairy tale compilations by Hans Christian Anderson and the Grimm's Household Tales.

Have a great week being a self-publisher - I know I am!

Over and out,
