Tom’s Blog

Well, hello! My name is Tom Holbrook and this is the first entry in my blog. I’m not a scientist trapped on Mars, I’m not a famous movie star, or even a famous author. I’m a bookstore owner and part time author. I’m also an editor and a lover of story.

Over the next few months I’ll be building this website, AuthorHelp, designed to link beginning author’s to resources that I trust, that provide good information.

Listen, the Indie Author space is filled with good people, but there is also a lot of fraud and graft. I’ve been helping new authors get their book into the world for the last 10 years, one author at a time, meeting them at their skill level. I get paid for that work.

So yes, I want you to make use of this site, and if you are interested, I want you to hire me. But there’s no obligation. The information here is free. There’s not even a forced email sign-up, though if you want to sign up from my newsletter, you can.

As to this blog, I have a few intentions. One is to talk about interesting changes and events in the Indie Publishing world. Another is to talk about specific editing and story issues I come across in my daily work, and that I find interesting. The third is to share book reviews. I read a alot, and when I finish a book I’ll talk about it here. If it was a writing craft book, I’ll let you know if I think it’s worth reading. If it’s a novel or other non-craft book, I’ll talk about how the author used their craft tools in the book, and what worked and what didn’t.

Sound good?
