Howdy. I hope everyone is having a decent Tuesday, it’s chaos as usual here in the Benefiel household. I have a few useful links to share with indie readers and writers alike today.
I’m doing the I Heart Indie Books reading challenge on Goodreads and Michelle from Indie Paranormal Book Review is the mediator. (Is that the right word? I’m drawing a blank. She runs the dang thing. Ha!) Anyway, she’s posted some sites where people can find indie reads more easily, and she posted a new one last night. Indie Ebook Hall of Fame is brand new and super easy to submit to. The only criteria are that the book is indie, available in several e-book formats (basically, is it on Smashwords?), and it needs to have received a minimum of three positive reviews from indie or indie friendly book bloggers. I sent in my submission last night. (Just to illustrate how awesome and der I am, I hopped all over the internet grabbing all the links and such for Glimpse before realizing that I have everything-including the reviews! compiled in one place on my website. No wonder it gets no hits, I can’t even remember to hit it.)
Today I’m writing from Melody’s POV in Glow and it is definitely the hardest so far. I mean, I’ve got Zellie down and Ben is Claire + lots of inappropriate sexual comments, so that’s not too hard for me either. 🙂 The last time I really wrote from Melody’s POV, she was 13 and popular and not a Lookout. Yeah, a lot’s changed! She’s 15 in Glow, the same age Zellie was at the beginning of Glimpse, but I think we can all agree that Zellie and Melody are not similar in very many ways.
I suppose I’ll just keep writin’ on it and Melody will turn up. 🙂
Have a great rest of the day! See you tomorrow for ROW80 check-in #5.
