Friday Recommends – Stuff For Writers and Readers, and More Shoes

Contest continues. For details, read the August 12, 2011 post by clicking here.

Even though he stopped following me on Twitter, thus breaking my sensitive artist’s heart, Joseph Robert Lewis remains one of my mostest favoritest writers. He’s also crazy-wise about making eBooks and generous with his wisdom about writing and publishing. I highly recommend bookmarking his Stuff For Writers page. I also highly recommend buying and reading everything he writes. You’ll thank me later.

Whether you’re a writer or a reader, you should be interested in these three sites: Simon Royle, another MOST excellent writer and generous soul, has put up a list of reviewers who focus on books by indie writers and publishers. A group of fine folks have collected and maintain The Book Blogger Directory, a listing of book bloggers. Whether you hope to have your book reviewed or want to see what’s worth reading before you bother to download a sample, here is a good place to start. If, like me, you’re cheap tight thrifty, Daily Cheap Reads is the site for you. All the books listed here are under $5.00, and some are free.

One of my favorite sites is If Style Could Kill. Eye candy for the feet!

Okay, Angels, have a good weekend. I’ll be back tomorrow with some kind of blather, then Sample Sunday, the ~drumroll~ Release day for FORCE OF HABIT! !! !

WRITING PROMPT: A character learns about a book that changes his or her life from an unexpected source.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
