Over the years, my fellow authors and aspiring writers have been curious about some of the resources I use to complete my projects. To share my process with you, I’m including links to posts I have written, resources I use, and a few freebies.
These are by no means the perfect way to do it. I frequently tell authors to use whatever works best for them. I’m always modifying my process and encourage you to as well.
Hope these help!
