S1E8 Writing and Publishing Tools EVERY Writer Needs

Because teens should know the truth about how to make a book!

Season 1, episode 8
1 hr 12 min / Published

Its TEN days left to Christmas!!

It never fails to amazing me, how many opinions are out there on writing and publishing. Get ten people in a room and you’ll likely walk away with 22 opinions.


What bugs me though, is people pushing products and platforms like there’s only one way to do things, and I don’t just mean every Tom, Dick, and Buford here, but people with real influence. People trying to get writers to buy ‘stuff’ (cause I don’t think there’s a better word for it).

So here I am, Jaime Buckley, old, irritating fiction writer that I am, to serve up my own opinion, mostly so I can sleep better at night, but also so you don’ have to stressor waste your money.

There’s no need.

I’d like to share the ‘truth’ (translation: my own 112.4% biased opinion) and then share what I personally use myself, and WHY.

Now, to be clear here, I’m not talking about the method of writing. That’s not in the scope of this article. I’m specifically talking about your process (worldbuilding) and what you do when you have the contents of a book.

This is about TOOLS.

So let me do the honor and simplify what you DO need to both write AND sell a book—because I’ll always assume you’ll want to make money.

The details will be in the show notes, with links to everything, so you can check out the resources for yourself. You can find them right here.
