In my most recent e-newsletter, I discussed 3 books (free to all!) that I consider mandatory reading for every author. If you didn’t receive the newsletter, you can view it here.
The three books are:
- Mediactive by Dan Gillmor
- Book: A Futurist’s Manifesto by Hugh McGuire & Brian O’Leary
- The Cluetrain Manifesto
My newsletter explains the value of each one to both new and established writers. To never miss an issue of my e-newsletter, click here to suscribe.
