Each week, I like to take an evening to read articles about the craft of writing and those that I think are the cream of the crop, I link to here on Mondays.  This time around, I was in more of a marketing mood and there are several good links about ways to market yourself as an author in addition to the general writing ones.  I hope you like them!

Welcome back to another Monday of No Wasted Ink writer’s links.  I have a nice assortment of articles for you this week.  One that explains writer’s associations and how they benefit authors, how to research, and a book review on Wonderbook.  If you write fantasy, this book is a powerful resource and I highly recommend adding it to your reference bookshelf.
