It’s a given in my family that for Christmas, you always get some books. This year my wife bought me two really awesome books that will help me on my author journey, so I thought I’d share.
The first is called We Are Not Alone by Kristen Lamb. It’s a social media guide geared for writers whether you pub trad or self or have nothing. I’m a quarter of the way through and I love it. It’s written conversational so you feel like the author is sitting right next you teaching you how to harness social media. The cool thing is I found out about it in exactly the way it teaches you to market yourself.
My author friend Susan Bischoff recommended it and since I like her, I checked it out. Then I went to Kristen’s blog, which is full of good information and I started to like her. It made me want to support her by getting her book. This is what she shows you how to do.
The other book I got is called Vampires: In Their Own Words. It’s an anthology about real vampires and their experiences. I had an idea for a future vampire story and this book looked like it would give me a different angle on them. So far I’ve only read part of the intro, but it’s very interesting.
Anybody else get something cool to read?
