Website Wonders

27 Jun

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 June’s Website Wonders categorized into Writing, Fiction, Illustrations, and Photography/Film.

If you enjoy these websites, be sure to follow me on Twitter because I share even more websites and photos like this there.

What are readers already saying about Bad Bloods?

“November Rain was thrilling and exciting and gets readers excited for more. It really focuses on the attributes of family, friends and loyalty, which was really refreshing to see in a dystopian novel. I will definitely be continuing on with this duology.” – Ronnie’s World Blog

    The “20 Amazing JRR Tolkien inspired tattoos” didn’t work for me. It just opened the picture of the cat shirt larger. 😯

    Hi Shannon. Of course, I enjoy your witty and informative blogs! I also liked part of one of the Links you provided on “51 Writers’ Tips”, but I found it one of those sites that makes you have to “dig” to find what you want, which feels frustrating to me. Feels kind of like a ‘trap’, like many marketing campaigns, to make you go deeper and deeper past lots of advertising and never quite seeing what you/I expected… But, to finish on an up-tick, I like the tip by James Patterson’s method is simple: “I’m always pretending that I’m sitting across from somebody. I’m telling them a story, and I don’t want them to get up until it’s finished.” Adios, amiga! val

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, Val, but I’m really sorry about the advertising you had on your end. I truly try to avoid websites like that, and I’m not seeing that on my browser (or I would’ve never shared it). Still, I’m glad you were able to enjoy a few quotes, and I’ll avoid that website in the future. Thank you for letting me know.
