New Additions to “Cool Sites for Writers and Readers” page, and “Online Fiction etc. to Read and Love” page

We haven’t updated the Cool Sites for Writers and Readers page – or, for that matter, the Online Fiction etc. to Read and Love page – all summer, so it’s time to catch up.

New in Online Fiction etc. to Read and Love:
Poetry – “Prepositions” by Elizabeth Savage, from Prime Number Magazine 11.2
(There’s so much great reading out there, and I had several pieces all listed out…. Then I deleted the list… oops)

New in Cool Sites for Writers and Readers:

Shelf Awareness – A site (and twice-weekly free newsletter on request) about books and the book industry, in two flavors: for readers, and for book trade professionals. Includes reviews of new releases in all categories, and articles on everything book-related. Founded by publishing industry veterans John Mutter and Jenn Risko.

McKenna’s Way – [Sorry, this site no longer exists] articles by McKenna Donovan and guests on various aspects of writing, from grammar and craft to motivation and finances.

  1. I had just signed up for Shelf Awareness emails the other day. Like I need more email to inundate my inbox. But so far it’s pretty interesting, sort of like the Goodreads newsletter, but more in-depth.

    • Me too – I’ve been snooping around Shelf Awareness off and on all day, and I can’t wait until the Book Balloon discussion starts. I’m not sure I have time to participate in much more, but it’ll be fun to try.
