A ‘Booktuber’ is a Youtube channel that specializes in all things bookish, including bookshelf-themed videos, writing advice, NaNoWriMo vlogs, reviews, and more! Here, I’ve listed some incredibly useful channels, each great for their own reasons. (But, for this post, I’ve only included the Booktubers who give writing advice) In no particular order:
Kat O’Keeffe is a book lover extraordinaire, with quite a massive collection of Young Adult books. Here you’ll find motivational NaNoWriMo vlogs (a whole heap of them!) book reviews and talks, inspiration, writing advice and general entertainment.
2. Ellen Brock
Ellen is a freelance book editor, perfect for future self-published novelists, and is incredibly skilled in her field of work. Seriously, just watching one of her advice videos or reading a page on her site will instantly transform you into a better writer. I swear!
3. Mandi Lynn
Mandi Lynn is the self-published teen author of Essence and I am Mercy. Her channel is remarkable because she gives you an insider’s point of view into the world of self-publishing: from formatting your book for print, creating a book trailer and cover, to an entire summary of how much it cost her to publish!
4. Jenna Moreci
Jenna’s book, EVE: THE AWAKENING, is a great read all by itself. But it’s even better when paired with her original and relatable videos, splashed with humor galore.
Rose brings something a little different to the table: she’s a traditionally published author. He beautifully written re-telling of Beauty and the Beast, Roses, is published by SkyPony Press, a division of SkyHorse Press. Her channel has the normal videos of a Booktuber, but also vlogs and updates on her writing life. A great look at the world of traditional publishing!
Author’s Note: There are hundreds, and I mean HUNDREDS of other brilliant Booktubers/writing advice Youtubers out there! In no way do I mean these five people to be the only ones! If you have any other favorites, go ahead and mention them in a comment down below….
