This year marks eleven years in the writing and publishing industry and six years since I’ve been freelancing. I wouldn’t be able to do my work without some key resources, and while that list can fluctuate with the type of work on my docket, these resources have proved to be invaluable for me over the years. Keep in mind the bulk of my work is in the non-fiction realm, so some of these resources are geared toward that genre but most can be used for fiction work too!
