What is the #1 source of writing and business knowledge? Author conferences. And it’s not just their presentations.

We love love love the amazing content in the Inkers Con presentations but we often learn just as much from conversations with the fellow attendees.

Alessandra Torre shared "One of my favorite memories is chatting with Kyla Stone about craft books. She told me that she reads a craft book after every book she writes. It was a throwaway comment during a conversation about craft but her dedication and adherence to that practice stuck with me long after that discussion - and was something I carried with me and started to implement in my own career."

Each year at Inkers Con we have a specific track that is focused on craft. This year’s, we’ll provide six new craft classes - and we can’t WAIT to learn from these experts.

Our 2024 Inkers Con agenda includes:

⭐Tackling the Tropes of Your Genre by Dawn Alexander and Jessica Snyder
⭐Between Pantsing & Outlines: The Skeleton Draft by Steff Green
⭐Creating a Series Addiction by Kristen Oliphant
⭐The Secrets of Successful World Building by Giana Darling
⭐Creating Conflict With Your Characters by TM Holladay
⭐Dynamic Openings for the Win by Annabeth Albert

In the past I’ve warned authors against quitting their day job and writing full time. But maybe you’re raring to go and convinced that this is your time! And you know what? Maybe it is. Before you put in your two weeks, check out these 13 tips from full-time author RJ Blain. There is SO much wisdom in this post – and I urge every serious author, whether you’re ready to make the jump or not, to read through it carefully.

By RJ Blain

Being a full-time author is tough. When do you make the dive? Is making the dive the right choice for you? I love writing, but there’s nothing quite as stressful as spinning your wheels and going nowhere fast. There have been years where I failed to make a profit—or a living. I am one of the lucky ones: my husband works full time, and if my job fails to pay the bills, we can make it through.

Now that I’m on the right side of the ‘making it work’ line, there are a lot of things I wish I’d known before diving into being a full-time author. Here’s my list of tips I wish someone had told me when I’d switched from hobby writing to making a full-time living as an author. ...

What does it mean to be an “award-winning” author?

It depends. Similar to the “bestselling author” moniker, readers have grown unimpressed by this title, unless it comes from a highly reputable (and recognizable) source.

Authors are often frantic for some feedback on their books, and while some contests send back opinion letters of every entry, most do not. Research each competition that you enter carefully, especially if they are charging an entry fee. If you do win a smaller competition – rejoice! But don’t expect massive book sales or print deals as a result.

Often the exposure of smaller competitions is limited, and a win doesn’t necessarily translate into sales. There are a lot of fly-by-night book awards out there that will happily take your entry fee – so be careful where and how you spend your hard-earned money.

If you’re contemplating entering your book in a competition, here are some tips to help you navigate the process.

In a recent discussion with fellow authors, we got around to discussing editing tools, and what they use and love. It was an interesting discussion, and one that caused me to spend this weekend testing out the capabilities of Autocrit, Grammarly, and ProWriting Aid.

All three tools boast the ability to improve your writing – but which one is best?

I tested out all three, and here are my thoughts:

Love this! - Jen

Oh, sweet mysteries, I have missed you! I have been working on writing my own paranormal mystery and have devoted less time to reading than normal ... and I moved Heather Leighson - Writes and CZ Reeves books to the top of my reading list to support my fellow writing friends. I was going to read Loren Tuxford Author next, but I need a mystery first. Chose AR Torre as my mystery because 1) I love her books and 2) I met the other authors through Inkers Con
(if you love MM romance, check out Heather's The Truth of Loving You. If you like second chance romance, CZ's Forever Be My Always. Both were wonderful books!)
