Resources for authors, collected and written by an author.
I’ve found Airtable to be the perfect resource to organize all of the information I need to stay on top of stories and administrative tasks.
If you want to give it a try, I have created a couple of templates to help you get started.
The Writing Bible Template includes space to record all of the information about your books, characters, locations, and more! Everything is easily cross-referenced and you easily can drop in your cover images or pictures you want to keep handy for character or story inspiration.
The Digital Publishing Roadmap & Checklist serves 2 purposes. The first is for authors who might be considering publishing on a new platform for the first time. This spreadsheet includes everything you need to know about the process of uploading, modifying, or changing the price on any of the major ebook retailers. The second is to keep track of your formatting or uploading progress. With the formatting spreadsheet, you can keep track of the front and backmatter you want to include in each book, and all of the little details like fonts and spacing to ensure you have a cohesive look. There is also a checklist so you can keep track of where you’ve uploaded or updated each of your books.
