Author Toolbox Blog Hop: Article Listing

Although I will not be adding a piece this month to the Author Toolbox Blog Hop, I wanted to share the great content produced by my fellow hoppers. Blog hopping is a great way to connect and learn from other writers and bloggers and Raimey Gallant’s Author Toolbox has some amazing people involved. There are articles ranging in topics from craft, editing, marketing, and motivation written and shared each month. I am lucky to have found such a supportive community.

Be sure to check out Twitter every third Wednesday at #AuthorToolboxBlogHop to find other great articles each month. Or if you are interested in joining the hop find out the details at Author Toolbox Blog Hop Home.

    A compilation post of all the #AuthorToolboxBlogHop posts for the month? Hey, I think that counts as an awesome contribution to the hop! If you’ve read my post (Introducing Social Jukebox, linked above), you’ll know I’m adding all the posts to a Jukebox to promote forevermore. Now I can make sure I haven’t missed any.

    It’s one post to rule them all!
