September 2020 Around the Web



Is it my imagination or are the months spinning faster? I can hardly keep up. I guess there’s nothing else to do but blame it on 2020. 🙂


INSPIRATION:

There’s a lot of common sense in Rebecca Waters’ “Surviving the Political Pandemic” post, especially the last tip.

Putting out an indie book when every chore rests on my shoulders is stressful. I found “Straining, Striving, Struggling…STOP.” on Becky Harling’s blog filled with words of much-needed wisdom for whatever is going on. It was especially of interest on a day when I’d been thinking those same thoughts.

Wow! I loved this story on “Our very last breath” on Lisa Buffaloe’s blog. What a chilling (seriously, no pun intended) and inspiring story!


READING:

For those who enjoy romantic suspense, check out the “Elizabeth Goddard interview with Susan Sleeman” on the Suspense Zone blog.

I’ve been hearing a lot about the dual-time novel, The Edge of Belonging. “Amanda Cox | 20 Questions: THE EDGE OF BELONGING” on the Fresh Fiction blog provides an interview with the author. I especially liked her choice of Pride and Prejudice movie versions.


WRITING:

How Are You, Writer, Really?” by Blythe Daniels on the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference blog struck a note with me. Are you, too, feeling a bit burned out these days?

How do you get your ideas? Maybe through “Unconscious Thought Theory for Authors“. An intriguing post on the My Book Cave blog.

One of the biggest decisions an indie author makes (after deciding to go indie) is whether or not they’ll put their books in Amazon’s KDP Select. There are advantages as well as drawbacks. “Amazon’s Importance to US Book Sales Keeps Increasing—for Better or Worse” on Jane Friedman’s blog breaks some of those down. What are your thoughts on Amazon exclusivity?

You know how every marketing guru says an author should do videos? Well, I had the pleasure of being video interviewed (my first!) by Terri Thompson for her vlog It’s About Writing. I really do need to work on keeping still. 🙂
