Santa's List for a Better Writing Career?


Midwest Review’s Top Books for Writers
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In an article in his newsletter, Jim Cox, founding guru of the Midwest Review, included his suggested titles for writers and I'm flattered (and glad) to be one of them.  At this season I think of it as his gift list for writers. Just think! A holiday gift that could lead to a better writing career in 2015.
Cox said, "There are a lot of excellent how to instruction manuals and guides available to the novice publisher and the newly self-published author on what has been termed 'guerilla marketing' strategies offering a wealth of tips, tricks, techniques, and strategies for those of limited financial means. You will find them reviewed and listed at:
