Writing Resources That Rock

Publisher Rocket 

Publisher Rocket is designed by Dave Chesson. It’s the tool I use to find keywords that are highly searched for and also have a low competition score. Dave is the keyword expert. He’s also one of the most engaging entrepreneurs I know. I’ll always remember the time I asked him a question about Publisher Rocket via Facebook, and he responded in less than an hour, answering my question via video. Even better, Dave was at the airport at the time and said: “Jed, I’m shooting you this video because it will be the easiest way to answer your question.” He then gave me my own personal deep dive into Rocket.

Thanks, Dave. I’m a true fan! Here are several of Dave’s resources that I think are worth checking out:

  1. Publisher Rocket: This is the ultimate Amazon keyword and category research tool. It will also allow you to see how much other authors are making from their books. Rocket is an incredible resource for increasing your book’s rankings and selling more books!
  2. AMS Course: Dave’s Amazon Ads course is the best around. He gives away a ton of valuable information for FREE! There is one warning, however. Dave will try to sell you Publisher Rocket in this course. Fortunately, it is a soft sell. Dave actually shows you how to do everything without Publisher Rocket–then casually shows you how to save a few hours of your time by using his writing tool. If you run Amazon Ads for your book, this is a must-watch video!
  3. Book Description Generator: This fantastic–and completely free–writing resource will allow you to get your Amazon book description to look precisely the way you want it to look. It’s simple to use and incredibly helpful. Simply copy and paste your book description, and use the built-in features to add bold fonts, larger fonts, bullet points, etc. Then, generate your HTML code.
  4. Keywords Deep Dive: Finally, if you are looking to do a deep dive into Amazon keywords, this article offers some of the best insights, tips, tricks, and strategies around. Dave walks you through–step by step– precisely what you need to do to make the most of each of those seven keyword boxes on Amazon’s back end. It’s another incredibly valuable writing resource Dave offers for free!

Writing Books I love

Writers are readers! And we like to read about writing too. I’ll be honest, with six kiddos, I listen to more books than I read. Which is why I love Audible! The ability to adjust the speed allows me to get through plenty of books fast.

Here are some of my favorite writing resource books. Each one highly influenced me and will help you hone your craft! 

  1. On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft: Although I’ve never been a big fan of Stephen King’s fiction, this book is pure genius. I love the way he talks about writing in snapshots, as well as his overall passion for his craft.
    [Tweet ““Books are a uniquely portable magic. ― Stephen King”]
  2. You are a Writer: So Start Acting Like One: Jeff Goin’s book reinforced my belief that a writer’s primary job is to write. You are a Writer, kept me focused on my most important task during my early days of writing and blogging.
    [Tweet “You are a writer. You just need to write.” ― Jeff Goins”]
  3. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear: Elizabeth Gilbert does a fantastic job of inspiring creativity. This book makes me want to write and helps me believe that my writing makes a difference.
    [Tweet ““Be the weirdo who dares to enjoy.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert”]
  4. The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles: This is my go-to book whenever writing is difficult. Steven Pressfield helped me understand that when it comes to writing, hard is normal. He inspires me–and thousands of other writers–to keep pressing forward and to overcome resistance as only he can do! 
    [Tweet ““The most important thing about art is to work. Nothing else matters except sitting down every day and trying.” ― Steven Pressfield”]
