Our favorite resources for writers ready to level up their craft

To support you on your journey, we compiled our favorite resources for you. There are gems here for everyone, whether you’re a seasoned author or just beginning.

Books for Writers
In our Bookshop storefront, we compiled a list of our personal favorite books on the writing craft and business of being an author. We know they’ll help you because they helped us—in finding better work-life balance, gaining confidence as artists, and brushing up on our grammar.
Below are our top five selections. Check out the full list at the bottom to see more options. Bookshop.org is an online bookseller dedicated to supporting independent bookstores. A portion of each purchase supports us here at Conquer Books as well (Read more about this dynamic addition to the book industry here).
