Writer’s Guides

My writer’s guides provide tips and advice for both established and aspiring authors in a variety of genres, including books for children and young adults, time travel stories, historical fiction, and social media writing. In addition to the writer’s guides, Where Do Ideas Come From? provides suggestions for teachers for creating writing workshops and classroom projects.

The Children’s Writer’s Guide

“This is by far the best book I have picked up to help me kick start my writing!”

The Children’s Writer’s Guide 2

“The Children’s Writer’s Guide 2 by Simon Rose is a tremendously worthwhile read when you are a writer and want to keep improving.”

The Time Traveler’s Guide

“This is a unique book, overall, and I recommend it to writers and those interested in methods of time travel in general.”

The Working Writer’s Guide

“This is certainly a good resource for writer’s looking to advance their career.”

Where Do Ideas Come From?

“This is a great teacher’s resource, but it is also a useful guide for other authors of young people’s literature. The idea of creating a learning guide for young people’s books is truly inspired.”

The Social Media Writer’s Guide

“The internet can be a powerful promotional tool and, following Simon’s suggestions and guidelines, a professional copywriter can certainly improve his/her skills. A good resource.”

Exploring the Fantasy Realm

“This is not a writing guide, but more of an overview of the elements of fantasy writing. I would recommend it to those interested in learning more about writing in the fantasy genre, however, as it does provide information that is useful in the writing process.”

School & Library Visits for Authors & Illustrators

“Simon leads the writer through all the possibilities and options and ways to optimize each potential interaction with young readers, be it in a school, a library or virtually. A very useful guide.”
