Sometimes I discover a website or blog that's so full of information I recommend it to writer friends over and over.
One of those, of course, is The Blood-Red Pencil.
Another is Joe Konrath's A Newbie's Guide to Publishing. In addition to the blog's regular posts, brimming with information to help the beginning writer get published, Joe now has his material organized in The Newbie's Guide to Publishing, available as a free PDF download or as an e-book from Kindle.
From information on how to format for Kindle, to guest posts on promotion, Joe's blog is a must-read.
