Publetariat is in the process of adding resource lists to all applicable departments. These lists of links to free resources will appear at the top of the list of articles within each department, so that when you click on ‘Design’, for example, the first item listed will be the Design Resources List. Resource lists are now posted in the Think and Write departments.
The Think resources list features blogs and sites offering insightful opinion pieces on broad-ranging topics that all fall under the umbrella of self-publishing. For example, in his blog, Mick Rooney offers reviews of self-publishing service providers, and PMI Books’ The Populist Publisher analyzes just about every issue you can think of related to self-publishing.
The Write resources list highlights sites with helpful tools you can use when dealing with issues related to craft. For example, Get Into It can help you work through writer’s block, the Internet Public Library offers a list of basic plot outlines, and Rick Walton maintains an extensive collection of brainstorming ideas and lists for authors of books, stories and poems for children (i.e., lists of common proverbs, first lines of kids’ songs, summaries of popular fairy tales, etc.) .
Additional resource lists are planned for the Design, Publish, Sell and Imprint departments, and will be announced when they’re ready. Check back from time to time because new links will be added periodically.
Feel free to use the Contact Us form to recommend relevant links. Recommended links should primarily offer information, opinion, instruction or downloadable resources of interest to indie authors and small imprints. Links to sites that only offer goods or services for a fee will not be added.
