Bits and pieces

Howdy.  I hope everyone is having a decent Tuesday, it’s chaos as usual here in the Benefiel household.  I have a few useful links to share with indie readers and writers alike today.

I’m doing the I Heart Indie Books reading challenge on Goodreads and Michelle from Indie Paranormal Book Review is the mediator. (Is that the right word?  I’m drawing a blank.  She runs the dang thing. Ha!)  Anyway, she’s posted some sites where people can find indie reads more easily, and she posted a new one last night.  Indie Ebook Hall of Fame is brand new and super easy to submit to.  The only criteria are that the book is indie, available in several e-book formats (basically, is it on Smashwords?), and it needs to have received a minimum of three positive reviews from indie or indie friendly book bloggers.   I sent in my submission last night.  (Just to illustrate how awesome and der I am, I hopped all over the internet grabbing all the links and such for Glimpse before realizing that I have everything-including the reviews! compiled in one place on my website. No wonder it gets no hits, I can’t even remember to hit it.)

Also, the Indie Book Collective launched the Blog Tour De Force this week and J.L Bryan is only a few days into his Haunted E-book Tour.  Lots of chances with both blog tours to win books and kindles!

Today I’m writing from Melody’s POV in Glow and it is definitely the hardest so far.  I mean, I’ve got Zellie down and Ben is Claire + lots of inappropriate sexual comments, so that’s not too hard for me either. 🙂  The last time I really wrote from Melody’s POV, she was 13 and popular and not a Lookout.  Yeah, a lot’s changed!  She’s 15 in Glow, the same age Zellie was at the beginning of Glimpse, but I think we can all agree that Zellie and Melody are not similar in very many ways.

I suppose I’ll just keep writin’ on it and Melody will turn up. 🙂

Have a great rest of the day!  See you tomorrow for ROW80 check-in #5.

  1. Thanks for the links, Stacey! Ever since my friend Lauralynn Elliott started indie publishing her books I’ve found so many new and wonderful authors to read. I have your first book on my to be read list and looking forward to it!
