Valued Resources

For Readers and For Writers

KK's happy blonde logo
Every resource entry describes a site, service or organization that I value as either a reader or a writer – and sometimes both.

For writers, some of these resources help the process of getting words on the page, others help with marketing, still others inform the business side of this profession that is foreign territory to most writers. For readers, there are review sites and literacy advocacy sources near and dear to my heart.

It’s not an exhaustive list, but my hope is that an entry someone finds interesting will lead them to explore from there. For example, a visit to Writer Beware could lead one to other very good sites about publishing contracts, predatory scams, bogus award systems, etc.

Feel free to comment, suggest others, and upvote your favorites! – Karin

Romance Writers of America

I no longer recommend RWA as a resource. Please see the full post for details on how RWA censured and suspended a woman of color for calling out racism. And then they made it worse.

Lesbian Reading Room

Resources / /

The Lesbian Reading Room reviews short and long fiction for and about lesbians, with attention to works produced in the United Kingdom. That's right, lots of books with that elegant "u", a personal favourite of mine. Read more about it.

Lesbrary Book Blog

Resources / /

The Lesbrary lesbrarians post about the books they find intriguing in the broad spectrum of lesbian and bisexual stories. There's also a link round up and a blog roll to expand your resources.

Public Libraries Everywhere

Library cards are easy to get, free, and may be available to you even if you don't live there. There are many library resources, like digital historic photos, that don't even require a library card. Plus Batgirl. Read more about Batgirl.
