WRAP UP FRIDAYS: Info recap... what every author should know


Hello world,

The last REV UP Wednesday interview with Rowena Cherry ended up being an information mine so big and winding that it was hard to keep up! So, today's blog is all about gathering the data that was kindly shared by Ms. Cherry and listing the links provided in a more convenient format. She had a lot to share, and although there is A WHOLE LOT MORE info on the original interview blog (including 80 plus comments and counting, consisting of more useful insights posted by the author), this list will keep you busy for a while. I think it's really great when someone takes the time to share all the information they've accumulated over time because research is so much work! When we're trying to find the key to a problem, to "unlock" the "secret" to something, it can take countless hours, days and even years. When someone shares their efforts without even being asked, they are saying that they want to make things easier for someone else, and they don't expect anything in return. Therefore, I wish to sincerely thank Rowena for being so generous and helpful.

I hope you get something out of these links as I'm sure I will!
