cozy mystery workshop with Jane Hinchey

Thank you for attending the Crafting a Killer Cozy Mystery Workshop - on this page you'll find the resources I talked about in the workshop, plus some that I didn't but decided to throw them in here because you might find them useful 🙂 

I mentioned in the workshop the Creative Indie Facebook Group. It's free to join and it's where I share a lot of the day to day stuff of running an indie author business. Basically whenever I'm doing something I'll screen record it so you can learn how to do it too. Like how to manage and send out ARCs (I actually created a mini course on that). How to purchase ISBNs from Bowker and use IngramSpark for your paperbacks. That sort of thing. 

If you'd like to be kept in the loop for any other workshops I may host in the future then sign up for my email list. I don't send out newsletters, but I will use it to notify you of any future training courses (both in person and online).
