If you are a self-published author looking to expand your networks, then tap into writing sites.  After all, since you have published an e-book, chances are people will want to read it, and if you are writing on various sites there is more of a chance that people will read your writing and make the …
Most people tend to over-think a lot of things when they think about becoming a writer. I am part of a much older crowd and tend to look at life in a much more black and white way.  I know all about the shades of grey and, because many of my younger acquaintances think in …
I have, for the most part, enjoyed reading the writing of Terry Brooks. He is one of my favourite fantasy writers, and he is also one of the main reasons I became a writer.  Lately however, I’ve found myself going back to him and feeling a bit disenchanted by his newer works.  I still have …
