OLD POST ALERT! This is an older post and although you might find some useful tips, any technical or publishing information is likely to be out of date.

Author 2.0 encapsulates the spirit of empowerment to create, publish, sell and promote with the amazing online tools available today.
I have sporadically updated it but now I have rewritten 95% of it to create a 52 page ebook packed with useful information on writing, publishing and book marketing.
The Blueprint is entirely free so please download and use whatever part of it resonates with you.
It's based on articles on the blog as well as information from other blogs. I link to many of the sites I personally find useful and I recommend further resources, some free and some paid, if you want to continue your research further.
Since The Creative Penn is a business these days, there are links to my own courses and affiliate links to others, but all of it is based on what I have found useful myself. I still aim to save you time, money and heartache on the writer's journey, so I hope you find it useful.
