#MondayBlogs: Why Writing is Better Than Sex

12 Jan

Intro:

Today is Monday, which brings us #MondayBlogs – a.k.a. guest writer day! Every Monday, a fellow blogger will be covering a topic revolving around reading and writing, and today’s topic is obviously rather humorous, but it’s also an infograph. If you want to be a guest blogger, check out the information below the infograph. Before that though, read this spicy piece, brought to you by Global English Editing.

Website Wonders: Shelfari

10 Jan

Thanks for all the wonderful support for “November Snow” being available on Kindle now. I really appreciate it.

Aside from that, I’ve was really busy during that time and constantly on a computer, so my vision got a little blurry, and I had to force myself to take a little vacation. So if you’ve attempted to contact me, I’m a little late at responding, but I will soon! My vision is now back, and so am I.

During my Kindle-time, however, Amazon introduced me to Shelfari.com, a website which encourages readers to share what they have read, what they are currently reading, and what they want to read. This social site creates virtual bookshelves, and you can review, discuss, and recommend books to friends, readers, and authors alike. Joins groups of readers with the same interests, connect with your favorite authors, and find more reading/writing tips within the publishing industry. Screen Shot 2013-01-09 at 6.03.27 PM

I really like this site, because you can also add BOOK EXTRAS, which include your favorite characters, descriptions, vocabulary, and quotes. I think that’s a great thing to have when reading a novel, especially in Fantasy and Sci-FI.

So check out the site here.

And follow me here, so we can see what we’re all reading and socialize about our passion for reading/writing more!

As an extra, here’s favorite quotes from “November Snow” Book Extras:

“These children are our future. We were children once. All of us were. Bad bloods are an evolution. They are a mutation, not a disease, and we will all have these special abilities one day. Are we going to kill all of our children then? Are we going to kill our future? Because that is what we are heading towards. A dead future” – Alex Henderson

“I truly loved her for the short period time that we had been together. I felt as if she was part of my destiny. To see that destiny leave was the most unexplainable feeling. It was also the worst.” -Daniel Wilson
