I love Books
Guest Post
by: Sheldon Townsend

I love books.  Not just reading them and owning them, but I love books like I love liberty and justice.  The invention of the book was one of the mankind's greatest achievements and I think there can be a direct connection between the Gutenberg press and the freedoms we all enjoy.  Books did two things: they made memory permanent and information democratic.  You could find a book and learn.  You didn't have to find an old person whose memory might be faulty.  And it made knowledge democratic, not the sole domain of the cabal of the lucky few (call them the knowledge 1%) who could afford manuscripts.  Books became cheap and plentiful thanks to Gutenberg.  And people became knowledgeable.  It broke the back of feudalism and the Catholic Church's monopoly on God, both of which ended the dark ages and led to the Renaissance.  This led to the Enlightenment and finally to the liberties those of us in the West enjoy.  It is telling that one of the first thing tyrants want to control is books.  So I love books.  You could say I'm intoxicated by them.

Cover Reveal! Sleepers by Megg Jensen

Introducing the new artwork for Megg Jensen’s bestselling novel SLEEPERS
To celebrate the re-launch of SLEEPERS in January of 2012, Megg is giving it a new cover with artwork from the incredible PhatPuppy.

An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can’t calm the fires raging inside her.

The Year I Became an Author; Guest Post by Cameo Renae + GIVEAWAY

The Year I Became an Author

Well, I thought I’d do a random post on what I learned this year, as far as being an author.
First… I actually became an author. Whoo-hoo! J  

On April 30, 2011, In My Dreams was released. It’s my first novel and is a YA Supernatural Romance / Thriller / Mystery. I decided to Self-Publish, because it seemed like the perfect thing to do at the time. With the finished manuscript in my hands, I just needed to know what to do next… I knew ZERO! I was so clueless about the whole process, but then… I found They have their own publishing company, which is pretty awesome.

The Healing Art of Writing by Candy Little

The Healing Art of Writing

My writing journey is a bit unconventional from most writers. I never thought much about becoming a writer when I was young. I dabbled with some poetry in high school, but nothing serious. And, once when I had Saturday detention, I filled the two hours by writing a short, horror story about an ax murderer.  After graduation, I got married and started my family I didn’t have time for writing.
That is the prequel my story. The first chapter of my writing career started fourteen years ago when I was twenty-eight years old.
