Hi! What can I get you?

There’s so much to consider every time you sit down to write your book. Worldbuilding, character development, the plot itself–it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

Finishing your first draft is a fantastic achievement, and I want to help you get there.

You’ve written your book, you’re proud of it, and you can’t wait to share it with the world. Now what?

There’s so much info out there, it’s easy to get lost or feel like it’s more than you can handle. I want to help you ready your book for its big day so you’re as prepared as you can be.

Get a notebook and a tea, and read my self-publishing tips.

Have you ever been told that being an author is a lonely business? Well, that’s just not true. As authors, we have all kinds of help–editors, cover designers, you name it!

I want to help you self-publish your novel. Every professional I recommend I’ve worked with myself. You can also hire me to edit your book, guide you through the self-publishing trenches, or you can pick up my freebie guide to get you started.

Please note that Sarina’s self-publishing services are now closed.

On this page, I list my favourite resources and tools for writers.

That includes books, online courses, writing programs, and more. Every single product on this page makes my writing and blogging life easier in some way, often in more ways than one. No matter where you are in your writing career, you’ll find something useful.

I use everything on the list myself, so you can be sure that every product is a personal recommendation 🙂

About Sarina

Sarina Langer is an epic fantasy author. Her debut novel, Rise of the Sparrows, was released in late May 2016. Its conclusion, Blood of the Dragon, is set for release later this year.

She’s as obsessed with books and stationery now as she was as a child, when she drowned her box of colour pencils in water so they wouldn’t die and scribbled her first stories on corridor walls.

(‘A first sign of things to come’, according to her mother. ‘Normal toddler behaviour’, according to Sarina.)

In her free time, she reads whatever her tbr jar coughs up next, plays video games, and researches the darker side of humanity and the end of the universe.

She has a weakness for books on writing and pretty words. (Specificity, anyone? Or perhaps nebulous?)

Sarina lives with her partner and daughter (read: their cat) in the south of England.

When she’s not helping you achieve your own indie author dreams, she’s self-publishing her books on her author website.
