I am a huge proponent of paying it forward. Being kind and helping others along is a great way to live. Life is simply too short to be selfish.
Over the next few weeks, there will be a few changes and new things happening here at my blog. Changes that I think you will all enjoy.
1. My new page, Welcome New Authors, is going to be dedicated to newly published authors. Never before published authors. People who just want a chance to tell the world their story.
Most of the authors are friends of mine, nice people that I have met via twitter or Facebook. Chances are that they are afraid, like most authors are when they decide to publish for the first time. Many of them are like me, writing since childhood, needing to purge the voices in their heads, wanting simply to share what they've written with the rest of the world. Many of them will be independently published authors, like me. ;o)
These will be books I've not yet read.While I may have seen a snippet or two here and there, I'm not here to judge, recommend or review. Those aren't my goals with this new page. My goal is simply to help them get the word out that their new book is here. To give them a boost up so to speak. ;o)
This page will be up and running in the next few weeks.
2. I'll be developing another new page that will be dedicated to authors and books that I absolutely love. Many of you might already know that I don't write a review unless it is a book that I loved, couldn't put down, enjoyed, or touched me in some deep way. That is what that new page will be dedicated to. Those really good books that you just want to tell the entire world about!
3. In a few weeks I'll be starting a new page where READERS can post about books they have enjoyed. The rules will be simple: Be kind, and be honest. ;o) And please, no authors touting their own books. This is going to be dedicated to readers only. At some point in the future, I'll set up a place where authors can talk about their new books, but that is a ways down the road.
4. Another exciting thing I'll be adding is a newsletter. It will be filled with author interviews, book reviews, recommendations, maybe even a recipe or two! I might brag about my perfect grandchildren too, so be prepared! I have all sorts of things planned for it ;o)
Have a beautiful day and may you be blessed beyond your wildest dreams!
Paying it forward. There is no better way to live.
