Dedications & Bios -- Yikes!


For anyone who has ever agonized over a book dedication -- either in the reading or writing of it, read this article. I now plan never to dedicate a book again. I had no idea how many people might be offended by being left out.

And if that didn't give you a case of literary anxiety, consider the craft of writing your literary bio, as this helpful website has. I didn't even know you could put that much into your bio. Now I'm worried. I've been using the same boring string of literary credits for years now. Who knew I was supposed to have a personality in my bio. Think of yourself as a brand, as this About article suggests. Yikes!
