This section of the website contains recommended books for authors, speakers, and more. Every day, someone asks me a question about which books they should read.
I’m going to list some of the best books in this part of the website. This page is the hub for this section of the site, and you can get to the other pages just by clicking the buttons (images) on this page. You can navigate back here by clicking the back button or by clicking the link at the bottom of each of the pages of books.
Note: The book links are connected to my Amazon affiliate account. All that means is this: if you click on a link on my site and order something from Amazon, then Amazon might share a few of its pennies with me, at no cost to you. If they do, I’m probably going to spend those pennies on books.
You do want me to have more books, right? Of course you do, because you’re a nice person, and you know that books are good things.

Recommended books on Self-Publishing
In the 1950s, traditional publishing was “the way to go.” It’s not the ’50s anymore, baby! For almost everyone, self-publishing is now the way to go. Find out what you need to know about self-publishing, including whether to DIY it all or to get some help from someone like me.
Books on creativity
Many people believe that creativity is a trait like eye color. It’s not. It’s a skill, and every skill can be strengthened.
Books on quotations
Of course there’s the old standby Bartlett’s, but there are some other, newer books available now.
I will add more books to this section of the site. If you have any favorites or other books to recommend, please email me the book title(s) and author(s) at Jennifer@harshmanservices.com and I will check them out. Thank you!
