Why Was Savvy Writers Set Up?
Savvy Writers was set up by author Tracy Buchanan to address the lack of resources and support available specifically for published authors. The fact is, the roller coaster ride doesn't end when your books go out into the world. Even if you have a publisher and an agent, it can often feel like you're left fending for yourself when your publishing dream becomes a reality.
Before this website was launched, it all started out at a Facebook group–the Savvy Writers' Snug. Now she's taking it a step further with Savvy Writers, an information hub where authors can get all they need in one place.
Who's Tracy Buchanan?
The founder of Savvy Writers
Tracy is a bestselling novelist of women's fiction and psychological suspense, who's had books published around the world with publishers ranging from HarperCollins and Random House to Bookouture and Amazon Publishing. Her new crime series was bought at auction by Bonnier Books and will hit shelves in July 2024.
Even though she's onto her eleventh book now, with some bestselling books under her belt, it's not been plain sailing. From one month to the next, she can never quite predict what literary challenge is going to be thrown at her. So she needs Savvy Writers just as much as any other published author out there!
