GoReadMe! – an idea on Crowd Reading
Susan M. Toy.
The marvelous Seumas Gallacher posted a status update to Facebook, a joke really, that had me laughing out loud here in my little trailer …
“…thinking of doing a GoFundMe thingy for a movie about my ‘To Be Read’ pile on my ebook Reader… calling it ‘Kindler’s List’… all contributions welcome… J”
Then an idea struck me – “What if,” I thought (those great little words that lead to the beginning of many great ideas, stories and novels). And I wrote a message to the kind sir himself, running past him first the kernel of…

I requested permission to reblog this post written by roughseasinthemed, because there was so much valuable information included that will be of interest to all authors (and readers). roughseas is one of the very best readers I know and everyone will learn from her list of “mistakes” she’s been compiling recently. Do be sure to read the comments section as well for further lively discussion. Excellent blog post! Thanks, roughseas!
Here it is, Folks! Kevin Brennan’s announcement of the release of his new novel, Fascination! Kevin is offering an interesting method of publishing and three levels to pay for your purchase. Please support this terrific writer who I have promoted numerous times on Reading Recommendations. I have read and highly recommend all the books Kevin has previously published, so I look forward to purchasing and reading his latest. Congratulations, Kevin! And best of luck with Fascination!
It’s Fascination’s birthday! Help me celebrate by buying a copy, won’t you?
Below are three PayPal buttons. You get to decide how much you want to pay for this book, so pick one and you’ll be taken to your PayPal account for confirmation.
If you’d like to pay more than $5.99 for the book, email me at kevinbrennan520(at)gmail(dot)com and tell me the price. I’ll then zip you a PayPal invoice that you can pay online, and I’ll send the pdf file as soon as the transaction is official. Don’t forget: if you pay more than $5.99, you’ll get your name into the Fascination Hall of Fame in future editions of the book.
By the way, you’ll see that this is tied to the PayPal account for my editorial service, Indie-Scribable, so don’t be confused by the paperwork.
Since I inscribe each copy of the book to the buyer…

Talking about #bookreviews. A collection of great posts on how to get them and how to keep reviewers happy.
These are all excellent ideas on ways writers can get their work reviewed, but first and foremost is … Write a great book! (And for those readers still unsure about actually reviewing the books they read, check out this link to a blog post I have reblogged on Reading Recommendations.)
Recently I’ve read some great posts about reviews: how to get them, how to avoid things that annoy reviewers, and even posts recommending free books on the subject. You might have read them all, but just in case you haven’t, I thought I’d post them here.
The first one that came to my attention was a post by Nicholas Rossi, where he mentioned a free book (this one ) that was still free when I wrote this post but do make sure that’s still the case, and also some updates on other interesting sounding books on similar topics. You can check Nicholas Rossi’s post here. Do follow his blog if you haven’t as he shares a wealth of knowledge and is a great writer.
That post resulted in a comment by Beetley…

And Ye shall receive!
Especially when it’s being asked of the wonderful Chris Graham, or as we all fondly know him,
The Story Reading Ape!
After I posted that last blog about reading well-written books, I asked Chris if he would be able to create several memes using (somewhat) pithy statements I made in the post. And, likity-split!, here they are:
And here’s some information from Chris about these memes:
