About Hilari Bell

Hilari Bell has been called the poster child for persistence. The first novel she sold was the fifth she'd written, and when it sold she was working on novel fourteen. She now has seventeen conventionally published novels with two more under contract, and is now branching into epublishing her backlist novels and her writing tips.

She likes board games and "decadent" camping. (In a pop-up trailer with a space heater, a stove--even a toaster!) She says camping is the only time she gets to do enough reading...though when it comes to reading, there's really no such thing as enough.

She's also a member of the best writing critique group in the universe. (Her opinion, anyway.) And you can find their webpage at

Review by: Maranda Russell on Sep. 11, 2011 :
Some really great tips from a fellow author. Self-publishing can be a great thing or it can be a disaster. But this author is definitely right about one thing, self-publishing shouldn't be an excuse to cultivate lazy or mediocre writing skills. Too many authors think if you self-publish it means that your audience won't recognize all of the errors you neglect to edit out...believe me, they will notice!
