There was a time when an author only had his own imagination, his experience, and, if so blessed, a dictionary as resources. But the world has changed since those olden days.
Now be forewarned. When researching science there is a lot of information available. And it can get boring. So you will have to dig deep and persevere. You will learn more than you will ever need to put in your story, but you may need it to understand how best to use the information.
Take a look at our website at http://www.tr-indbkstore.com. On your computer you immediately see our logo, site title, menu, marquee (showing clickable pictures of our books), our site motto, and the beginning of additional content.
When writing a novel based in history always use resources that cover geography, climate, flora, fauna, manners, customs, and whatever else you can find.
These are the kind of tools I might use since I write on ancient history (especially Biblical history) and American History. The point is that there is a great deal of information at your fingertips for whatever subject you are interested in writing about.
The computer and Internet has revolutionized how and what we can research. Use it!
The simplicity is amazing! You actually do research while enjoying yourself. Instead of hours on the computer you see, feel, and smell the facts that may be just the nugget that fires up your imagination!
If you control most, if not all, aspects of writing, publishing, and marketing, you will also reap most of the profits.

I recently completed the video that tells about three different offers, actually a three-in-one offer, of which the mini-course is the ultimate gift. ItContinue reading “Should Writers Use Video?”
So why do I Market it for less than $10 a month? I do so because I realize that there are talented people out there waiting for the opportunity to write but they simply cannot afford to go to college or to participate in an expensive course. By keeping the price low I am able to give them their best opportunity now!
I only wish someone would have done this when I first started writing. Instead of trial and error, I would have learned the basics of writing, plus the basics of publishing and marketing.
