Wonderworld Variety

So, I have found another reliable link for writers and authors.  This is a lovely place to submit your ebook publication for exposure!  It’s also a good place to find interesting new books that just might not be on the NY best sellers list, but might become one of your personal favorites!

WANA Commons–Beautiful Blog Images without the Worry.

One of the things I have noticed as I browsed through author groups on Facebook and on blogs, is a concern for using the right things on our blogs without getting into copyright issues.  As authors we understand why people what to get paid for their efforts, but there is also a great, big world of the SHARE button out there.  Here is a place recommended by Kristen Lamb on her site, WANA (We Are Not Alone).

I intend to be a contributor!

The Five Mistakes Killing Self-Published Authors

The Five Mistakes Killing Self-Published Authors.

As mentioned on my “What I Write” page, I have become another avid follower of Kristen Lamb.  I think that part of what an author’s blog should do is share the precious gems of tips and tools we find as we wander around on the web researching marketing avenues and writing techniques.   This lady is awesome.  In fact, I’m reading her Kindle book, “Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Writer.”  What a refreshing and empowering book!  I am finding cause to be less timid and to actually enjoy communicating with other authors and exploring ways of communicating.  You will find her blogs on this website on occasion, but be sure to visit her place yourself.  Who knows what treasurers you’ll find!

Welcome to the Reading Alcove ~ A Place on the Window Seat

This is the official blog of Victoria Adams, a published author.  It has been established as the contact point between the readers and the author and as a “window seat” where we can talk about the books and subjects that we find of interest.  The primary interests here are Caregiving Backstage (because I am one), Humanities for the Unbound Mind (because I love all related subjects), and Natural Science from the Observation Deck (because I am an amateur Natural Scientist whose heroes spend a lot of time thinking). It is the type of place where you can imagine grabbing a cup of tea, a comfy thing to sit or sprawl on and a warm place in the sun (or a quiet place to listen to the rain).  It is a place where we will explore the world of the word together.
