Book: Internet Research For Fiction Writers by April Taylorcategories: Book, Reference, Authors, Novelists, Education, Internet Research
April Taylorabout this book: I decided I wanted to be a librarian - now called an 'information professional', when I was 12. I gave up working to write full time in my forties. In making contact with fellow authors I became aware that few really knew how to find information in the minefield that is the world wide web. Researching your novels can be fun or soul-destroying but there is the need to search effectively and be able to evaluate the veracity and worth of what you find.
There are many myths about the Internet. Everything is on it - wrong! Everything is true - even more wrong! Everything is free - (falls off chair laughing).
So I decided to try and help my fellow authors by writing this short guide. I've made it short because no writer wants to slog through 300 pages of explanation, they want to find out how to find what they want quickly and then get on with the writing. There are sections on where to search, how to search, how to evaluate what you've found, staying safe and within copyright, how to store your words so that, should a fire decimate your house, your work will still be safe in cyberspace and more.
I have a Masters degree in Information Studies and have worked in public, prison and research libraries.
