Recognizing and Respecting Writer’s Burnout

author Jeffe Kennedy

“Recognizing and Respecting Writer’s Burnout” was written by Jeffe Kennedy, an award-winning, best-selling author who writes fantasy with romantic elements and contemporary romance. She has won the prestigious RITA® Award from RWA, been a Ucross Foundation Fellow, received the Wyoming Arts Council Fellowship for Poetry, and was awarded a Frank Nelson Doubleday Memorial Award. Check out her upcoming novel, the Orchid Throne, which is available for pre-order.

How to Co-Author a Book: Top 5 Methods to Share the Workload

Whether you’re a bestselling author with a large back list or a debut author, readers always want one thing from you: more books. That’s why many authors publish frequently with the so-called “rapid release” strategy. 

But rapid releases are really hard to do as a solo author, and they require a lot of preparation. As a solution, many authors have turned to collaboration.
