Website Wonders

28 Jan

Website Wonders:

Every month, I share all of the websites I come across that I find helpful, humorous, or just awesome. Below, you’ll find all of January’s Website Wonders categorized into Writing and Authors as well as Reading. If you enjoy these websites, be sure to like my Facebook page because I share even more websites and photos like this there.


Writing and Authors:

8 Unstoppable Rules for Writing Killer Short Stories: A great little list.

Where to Find the Best Free Stock Photos: This was supplied to me by a fan, so I had to share!

Can I Mention Brand Name Products in My Fiction?: A fantastic and informative piece.

How Dreams, Goals and Habits Make You a Wildly Productive Writer: We could all be a little more productive. ;]

20 Quotes From The Greatest Love Letters Of The 20th Century: I am a sucker for love letters. I even own a paperback full of the greatest love lovers ever written, but surprisingly, none of these were in the text that I own, so I had to share these!



Before The Internet, Librarians Would ‘Answer Everything’ — And Still Do: I love librarians. I have always known how important they are, but it was further proved to me during my time at KU. Tami Albin saved my life.

 27 Places That Are A Book Lover’s Dream Come True: My dreams!

10 Stephen King Short Stories That Should Be Films: I will add this: as long as they directed it right.

American Libraries: This is a giant archive that you can research and read for free.

6 Beautiful Libraries You Need to Visit Right Now: Oh, the places you will go.

    Your comment about the Stephen King stories being made into movies is exactly right. Far too many of the stories that have been made into movies were total schlock.

    Semi-unrelated to the post, with the exception of the note about it being the last week to be able to pick up your work; forgive me if you’ve discussed it elsewhere and I’m just blind, but are you “locked in” to some sort of ownership or no-republish deal with your (unfortunately soon-to-be-ex) publisher? If not, you might want to look at CreateSpace or similar services. It’d give you a way to keep the books out there for the folks who want them, and continue to generate revenue and interest for finding them (or future projects) a new home.

    Again, apologies if it’s already come up elsewhere or if I’m sticking my nose somewhere it doesn’t belong. Just curious.
