100 sites for fiction writers: #45 - David Gaughran: Let's Get Digital

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.

David Gaughran: Let's Get Digital

There are a lot of writers out there suddenly trying to self publish their own works for e-books. There are also a lot of blogs out there about the very same topic. Unfortunately, most of them are crap, the e-books and the blogs.

There are exceptions, however, one such being the blog David Gaughran: Let's Get Digital. As you might guess, David Gaughran is the author of the blog as well as an independent e-book author. And "Let's Get Digital" is not only the partial title of his blog, but also the title to one of his e-books.

At it's most basic, Gaughran's blog is a semi-personal one with a focus upon his own experiences and his journey as an indie author. But along the way he provides lots of information and motivation.

For instance, he talks about everything that can be of interest to writers concerning the Digital Revolution, from articles on Royalties to thoughts about Short Stories, and considerably more. Beginning writers definitely should be paying attention.

And Gaughran goes beyond mere speculation, often becoming detailed, such as explaining about e-book Formatting or providing his own advice about book Covers. He also comments about e-book Pricing and Blogging.

If you are interested, you can keep up with David Gaughran through his Newsletter.

This is an author worth watching, and his advice seems quite practical, so I suggest paying attention to him.
