Friday Finds for Writers

Image description: wooden box filled with treasures/trinkets.


Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.

  • Over on GrubStreet’s blog, this (self-admittedly non-exhaustive) list of “Books that Made You Brave” makes me want to spend some time contemplating which book(s) I’d add, if asked.
  • “Social media can be a useful part of an author’s platform, helping them connect with readers, fellow writers, and the publishing community. But deciding what content to post next can be a struggle. So how do successful authors use social media to engage with their fans? And what can authors post on social media besides links to their own books?” Helpful ideas from Diana Urban over on BookBub.
  • Additional advice: “How to Write Better Titles: 7 Effective Title Tips for Books, Articles, and Conference Sessions,” via Robert Lee Brewer.
  • Lisa Romeo has come up with a lovely way to celebrate the father she writes about in her book Starting with Goodbye: A Daughter’s Memoir of Love After Loss. Details in this post. (Hint: If you don’t already have a copy of the book, Lisa is offering a copy as part of this endeavor.)
  • And you’ll encounter another intriguing set of Jewish-lit links over on my other blog today.
  • Have a good weekend, everyone.

    1. So, I’m asking: what books made you brave?

    2. Robert Seethaler’s The Tobacconist. This book covers the time period in Austria before WWII. I think the book has many parallels to today’s political situation, and it reminds me to be brave and speak out about what’s going on in the world.
