Chad AllenErin first met Chad at Re:Write and since then we have both become huge fans of his blog.  Chad is an editorial director for Baker Books.  We are fans of his down-to-earth writing style and willingness to offer his experience as a means for helping others achieve their goals.  {His advice for improving my author bio was immensely helpful!}

DuoLitShannon and Toni are filled with knowledge and experience about self-publishing.  Covering topics from branding to technology and everything in between, we find that DuoLit is one of our “go to” resources.  Plus, their PDF resources are incredible!
