There is now a "lite" version of the "How to Revise Your Novel" Workshop available for only $5. This is a complete revision programme; not a teaser. It was created by an author who was offered an opportunity to submit her novel to fit an unexpected open slot in a publisher's line-up... with the catch that the deadline for the completed manuscript was the following week. She did it: revised an entire novel in a week. She's put together everything she learnt about revising the hard way, with the good news that you can take as much time as you need to do your own revision. If you don't know where to start revising here is a handy guide to getting through the process.

How to Revise Your Novel Lite, 50 pages, PDF

(Note that the sign up site will push you twice to consider the full How to Revise Your Novel workshop. If you only want the $5 Lite course, just click "No thanks" each time and it will redirect you. You can always upgrade later if you want to.)

I've discovered an excellent alternative to Amazon.com for those of us who live outside the US and have to cop the massive shipping charges and lengthy waits for our purchases (at time of writing: $5 per shipment plus $5 per item from Amazon, and $12.50 per item for Marketplace purchases; up to 3 months delay in receipt of items between November and January, three to four weeks at other times of the year).

The Book Depository offers free shipping worldwide (beat that Amazon). I ordered some books last Thursday evening and they arrived on my doorstep on Tuesday afternoon. While their prices are a little higher than Amazon's (about a dollar on average), it certainly makes up for it if you are saving $10 to $12.50 on postage, and I have to say that the prices are far, far cheaper than books in Australia at the moment (I am a traitor, I know).
