An all-inclusive writing book over four years in the making, filled with more than 750 pages of tips, tricks, and advice. And it's 100% free.

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. It contains over 300 essays broken down by the following topics:
  • Writing
  • Breaking In
  • Publishing
  • Promotion
  • Touring
  • Peers
  • Internet
  • Reviews
  • Newsletters
  • Motivation
That's more than 250k words worth of material, organized, indexed, and bookmarked for your reading convenience. To use Bookmarks in Adobe Reader, click the bookmark icon on the left side of the .pdf when you open the file. You can also click on the page number in the table of contents and be taken straight to that article.

Best of all, there are hyperlinks to the original blog entries, allowing you to read and add to the comments on hundreds of different topics.

Extra special thanks to Rob Siders for his help in putting this together. When you finish writing that novel, Rob, I demand to be your first reader...
