What is one of the places in most communities where people can go to find information, use computers, talk to other people, and most importantly, read books for free? Your public library is a wonderful and important resource.

I have loved libraries since I was a child; I remember going to the branch library in my town with my mother and siblings. I thought it was such a large and magical place. This library was actually a fairly small building, but the magic inside was enormous, and that was the magic of books and reading! That small, local branch library begin my life long love of libraries.

Some of the institutions are magnificent city libraries, and some are small, but they are all important. Whether in a metropolis like New York City or a tiny town of 500, these treasure troves of knowledge and books all serve the people who use them.

Indie Book Month — Promote Your Books

Standard

On Twitter, there is a movement called #IndieApril, so I thought it was a good idea to import to WordPress.  Independent writers are the growing force in publishing, so please take this opportunity to publicize and promote your work!

I want to offer an opportunity for all writers who follow this blog to share information on their books. It can be very difficult to generate publicity for our writing, so I thought this little effort might help. All books may be mentioned, and there is no restriction on genre. This encompasses fiction, poetry, plays, and non-fiction. If I have neglected to mention a genre, please consider it to be included.

To participate, simply give your name, your book, information about it, and where to purchase it in the comments section. Then please be willing to reblog and/or tweet this post. The more people that see it, the more publicity we can generate for everyone’s books.

Thank you for participating!

Keep on writing!

Writers–Keep Writing!

Standard

Writers, keep writing!

Please remember that writing is not inspired from some external source, and it does not come in one burst of activity.

While talent matters, what is far more important is the ability to be disciplined and to work every day, to put pen to paper, or sit in front of the keyboard and to create even when things are not going well.

Hard work, discipline, and commitment are the most important qualities that are needed for creating a written work.

Try to write every day, even if your goal is only a couple of hundred words.

Keep writing!

You can do this!

Here is a big thank you to readers!  Without readers, writers would be completely lost.

Reading is one of the most crucial and pleasurable of activities–not only does it inform us about the world and those who inhabit it, but also the reading of fiction and placing ourselves in the positions of characters creates empathy.
