Here at Abyssinian Books we believe in empowered authors. We believe in helping you write the best stories you can imagine, and connecting you to the readers that will fall in love with your characters and your worlds.
What does that mean in practice? It depends.
Done For You: Do you want everything except actually writing your stories to be done for you? If so, you’ll want to consider submitting your work following our guidelines.
Do It Yourself: Do you want to do everything yourself? If so, you’ll want to explore our writing, marketing, and branding non-fiction. Below is a continually growing list of resources curated to fast-track your learning.
Scribophile: an online community where you can share excerpts of your writing for critique, ask questions, and help each other develop your craft. This is a great place to go if you’re experimenting with styles or techniques and you want to know if your experiment works or not.
