Last week I encountered an author who had delayed writing her book for an entire year.  “Writer’s block!” she exclaimed.  It is real, writer’s block does happen.  Because of it this author’s frustration had grown so much that she allowed the process of her book to come to a screeching halt.  Most of the writer’s I’ve heard from have experienced this phenomenon in one way or another, but it’s really up to the author how they will go about handling it.  One should never allow writer’s block to be an excuse for not writing.

The awesome ladies at Sparring Stepsisters Blog have started a very worthy anti-bullying campaign called Book Lovers Against Bullying. To participate is easy – you simply grab one of the templates below (there are two colors for each type – author, bookaholic, and blogger), and add your photo and name, using any simple program like Paint or an online tool like Pizap.com.

Once you’ve created your pledge postcard, they ask that you post the postcard to their Facebook Page wall, so they can count it towards their goal of pledges. If you add it to your own blog, webpage, or FB page I would ask that you include a link back to their page as a courtesy.

I’ve included links to all the postcard blanks below, as well as the link to their FB Page and their blog.

I added mine under blogger, and hope all my fellow writers, booknerds…

eBook Lovers Co-Op

Had a great day at work yesterday, and when I left work in the wee hours last night/this morn, I was in a good mood. I was tired, but I needed to go grab a money order for the rent, so I decided I would sit and read for a little bit while I wait for the mini-mart to open. After a while, I got tired of sitting there, so drove down the road to grab something to drink.

And that’s when my great day went to shit…

I came out to find my window gone, along with my purse and my work bag. Those rotten assholes who robbed me got everything – they even stole the change in my cupholder and my friggin hoodie. Who steals a goddamn hoodie? What’s worse, they got my wallet with all the money I’ve saved over the past 3 weeks towards rent and…

A few thoughts for authors.

eBook Lovers Co-Op

As any avid reader knows, picking your next read is often a crap shoot unless you know an author’s work, either from personal experience or the recommendation of a friend. Beyond that, you have no choice but to search among the veritable endless supply of books available, hoping you chose well and spent wisely. Because I hate finding out that what little my money I can afford to spend on books was wasted on one not to my tastes, I tend to be pretty picky about choosing what I’m going to read, and approach my hunt with a system of sorts.

For me, it begins with a cover that appeals to me, followed by a description that intrigues me. But, even with an appealing cover and an intriguing description, there is no guarantee it will be a good read, so I often find myself turning to the number of positive reviews…
