To start off, check out these guys.

Writing Excuses

They are a group of writers that cover the main areas of writing and most of the genres. If you have any desire to be a writer or to improve your style, check them out and listen to a few of their podcasts. They are all award winning in their fields and KNOW what they are talking about. I have listened through almost all of their seasons so far and have learned more than I could have dreamed. I knew one of the authors before hand, but I was introduced to their podcasts awhile later and loved it from the start. Please check them out when you have time and the great news is that you only need 15 minutes to listen per podcast. I usually listen to them on my commute to work and it makes the way much more enjoyable.

My next advise is to read/listen (available on audible.com) to this book by the one and only Steven King.

Steven King: On Writing

This is great for aspiring writers. It gives the do’s and don’ts on basic writing as well as some of a biography to show how much of a struggle this career choice can be. It also shows the rewards of staying true to what you love. This portrays the mountain climb of achieving goals in a very real and captivating manner. Personally, I have read some of his horror and his fantasy and I love his fantasy style. It is dark and leaves the reader guessing. This book is a great tool for any beginning author so be sure to check it out!

I will add more books as I find them, or let me know if you have any recommendations.
