Discovery Friday

     Today I was thinking about all the cool things I have discovered through my reading, blogging and writing  this week and thought I would share them with you. Maybe you will find something useful that you can use...

Cool books:
XVI  by Julia Karr  Totally enjoying this and will review it in the near future. Suffice it to say it is awesome! 

Hero by Mike Lupika  (I hope he has a sequel) MG  One of his best. A very fast ride!

Diary of a Bad Year by J.M. Coetzee A post modern divisive chapter structure that in the end delivers a coherent plot. Talk about writing outside of the box.

Cool Blogs:  
The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment by Matthew Rush His posts are meaty writing and his blog is loaded with useful links!
A Torch in the Tempest by Christi Goddard Snarky writing with real literary pizazz!
A Writer of Wrongs by Terry Towry Terry unabashedly shares his conference experience in NY. Go Terry!
Writing YA in the Midwest by Julia Karr  Follow the journey of XVI and her other writing projects. Congrats Julia!

  2. What a nice surprise! Thanks for Hero. I'll be back....

  3. Thanks for the suggesting the reads and for the links...hope you have a great weekend!

  4. I found you through JEFritz and came over to meet you. You have a very inviting blog, very cheerful, and informative!

    I see you call your blog So I'm Fifty. I guess I could call mine So I'm Seventy! After many decades of writing stories and poems am getting my first novel published SOON through a small press. It's never too late! So NEVER GIVE UP!
