Writing and Publishing Information and Advice

The IndieReCon online conference I mention two posts ago was an inspiring and information-filled three days. I couldn't keep up with all the great advice and videos and I've still one or two to access today. Some are more relevant to different authors but all have nuggets of practical advice that I'm aiming to put into action at some point.

I've also mentioned Pinterest before and Jay Artale's video on this was excellent. I hadn't realised just how much it's taken off for authors and it's one of the fastest growing sites. I still love the visual aspect of it. You can read Jay's presentation here.

Another very useful session was with multi-million selling American authors Bella Andre and Barbara Freethy - I've heard them before but listened to their fascinating discussion about being two of the most successful self-published authors and their tips on moving forward.

Have a look at the whole programme if you're interested in any of the other sessions - they're going to remain accessible for a while yet.

Thanks for the link, Rosemary.

I wasn't up to taking part, so it's good to know it's still accessible. :-)

Thank you, Rosemary - I'm going to take a look.

Sounds like an amazing conference. I've not explored Pinterest, because I'm not sure there's room in my life for it; but maybe I should take a little peek.

You're welcome, Teresa!

It's great to know we can dip in and out, Carol!

Hope you find something of interest, Wendy!

It's a more relaxing form of procrastination, Julia!

I will definitely click on Jay's presentation after leaving this comment, Rosemary. I've often wondered how/what Pinterest is all about. The IndieReCon online conference sounds as if it was filled with exciting nuggets of information. How on earth did we access all this valuable information before computers? xx

Thanks, Rosemary, I had intended visiting the conference, but now I know it's still available, I'll go over and have a look!

Hi,
I managed to watch one whilst the conference was in full swing. it was really good and informative. Didn't realise you could go back and watch them after it was all over.

Thank you Rosemary.

I was privileged to take part in the third day at Foyles. Goodness me, that was intense and exhilarating!

I hope you forgive me posting a link, Rosemary, but this is my account of that day.
