Here’s a little something to help writers get through hump day. For readers, it’s only three days until the weekend. Pick up a book on Saturday and relax.
Writing until it becomes as natural as breathing takes dedicated practice. Write often. Read copious books. Enjoy.
Literacy; reading ability, learning and knowledge. Literacy gives people the power to choose their destiny. Options are limited without it. When you can, encourage reading. Buy books, read to your children, read to new immigrants, write books and read diversely.
What better way to encourage literacy than buying someone a book for Christmas? If you want to buy for a reader who wants a good laugh and an easy read, I recommend Lynn Santer’s Just What the Doctor Ordered – Heart Warming Stories to Make Your Patient Smile (Vol. One). It’s a bit cheeky and for adults only. If this compilation of stories from all sorts of writers doesn’t tickle your funny bone, I don’t think you have one. I have contributed two chapters in the book. I’m sure all writers involved will agree that it was a fun project to write for. Get in quick to get your copy before Christmas. Click on the book link or here.
If you’re looking for an escape read, for that tropical summer holiday, then The Zanzibar Moon is your perfect pick. Targeted at the women’s contemporary fiction market, it’s a pleasant surprise for male readers, who will enjoy the action-packed African setting and the steamy sex scenes as well. Take yourself to a faraway exotic place with a true hero. You can buy The Zanzibar Moon through this website on the bookstore page or click on the book link. You can also use the contact page to request author signed copies. Again, get in quick if you want your copy by Christmas.
Love, Books and Reading,
