Over the course of this blog, I have made available an assortment of resources for writers.  Unless you happen to stumble upon the posts mentioning them, you’ll never know about them, so I thought I’d put everything in one place.  If you do not have the current version of Microsoft Office, you can download a compatibility pack from Microsoft for free that will enable you to read them.

Scene Questionnaire: This is the detailed questionnaire I use for every scene to make sure it really has a place in my story.  I talk about it here.

The Story Blueprint: Not actually mine, but mostly my crit partner’s (I had input).  This is what turned this inveterate pantser into a plotter and what I fill out (to varying degrees) for every book.

Word Count Tracking: Tired of not being able to find a spreadsheet to track my annual word count (everything I found was NaNo specific), I finally decided to make my own.  I talk about it here.

Simplified Novel Notebook: Lynn Viehl offers up a fantastic Novel Notebook on her blog, but it wasn’t quite what I needed.  I adapted and simplified it more to my personal tastes.

Getting To Know You: Character Interviews: I compiled my series of posts about conducting character interviews into one handy, dandy downloadable file.

From-Pantser-to-Plotter: The Mac-Daddy Article of Pantsers vs. Plotters: My most popular series of posts, I wrote this originally for Lynn Viehl’s Left Behind and Loving It 2009.

Sales Tracking Template: For all you indies who need to track your sales and are spreadsheet-phobic, here’s an easily adaptable spreadsheet to make your tracking of sales easier.

A Tome About Promo for Indie Authors: My detailed take on how to promote yourself as an indie author on a shoestring budget.

Book Launch Planner: My obsessively detailed spreadsheet to track all aspects of a virtual book launch.

    Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your book, To Get Me To You. It was a free read on my Kindle Unlimited subscription. It’s the one luxury I afford myself these days and when I discover an Author that writes like you I’m so happy that I can and do. I entered into the town of Wishful like a residential and became engrossed in their story of survival. I look forward to reading the rest of their stories in your forth coming books. Thank you…

  9. Read your downloads with interest and appreciation. Certainly a lot more that goes on behind the writing and indie publishing than most readers realize. I read your work via a freebie that I “bought” on Amazon. But I actually became aware of it via daily email. Since you don’t mention them in your downloads, I assume that they may be a relatively more recent development. I purchase all my freebies via this newsletter and it occasionally does lead to purchases of other books in the series. So what you say about free books does work.
    I would be curious to know if you have any feel for how many men read your books. I know I catch flack from my wife periodically. lol
