"Your Book Publishing Coach" Recommends ...
Resources to Help You Write, Publish, Promote and Sell Faster, Better,
and with Less Human Effort
|Note: All recommended resources have been reviewed thoroughly
by Diane, and pass muster for being a worthwhile investment of your time and/or money. Usually I
know the person delivering these resources personally. To be completely transparent, in some cases
I am an affiliate and I would receive a commission. However, I only become an afflilate for
products and services I truly believe in. This world is full of people who try to take advantage of
the many people who want to get published. I feel it is part of my mission to provide some guidance
on what is of true value and what is not.
