Introducing a new regular feature - a link to seven interesting book and writing related articles each week.


During 2017 I’ll be posting The Sunday Seven every week giving links to the seven most interesting articles to do with writing, publishing and language that I’ve come across during the preceding seven days.
Let’s get the ball rolling at the start of 2017 with this selection:

An interesting look at self-publishing from Fortune. (However, some of the prices for editing packages that are mentioned seem rather steep… Check out freelance editors like me for a good deal.)

Crime really seems to pay as a popular literary genre in the UK, per a survey by Publishers Perspective. This article is actually from June of this year, but I only happened across it recently.
