FORGOTTEN – Neven Carr

bookpostmortem

ForgottenAn enjoyable read, the first in the exciting ‘Araneya Series’, involving a ruthless band of Italian-Australian ex-Vietnam Vets out to silence a child witness when it appears that her trauma-induced lost memory might be returning.

Young teacher, Claudia Cabriatti does not think it strange that all children have no memory of life in early childhood, but hers begin at age eight. Then a woman is shot and killed in the grounds of Claudia’s home; a strangely familiar face…

Then she senses that she is being followed, and when a second killing takes place, her world of family warmth and trust begins to fall apart when she realises that her beloved Papa is also not what he seems to be.

Why feedback is so important… #writing #amwriting #writerslife

I was recently reading On Writing by Stephen King. It’s one of those books you dip in and out of and even re-read. While I love his candid style, it is something else within this book that I want to reflect on.

The importance of nurturing young minds

I have always been a reader; my earliest memories are of sitting with my head buried in a book. People would buy me books, my mum in particular bought me a huge number as gifts. I would read my favorites over and over again. I was never much of a writer when young though, and it wasn’t until I left university that I started to dabble in writing myself.

Still tryingto help indie authors. #SupportIndieAuthors #BookwormsUnite

Riley Amos Westbook

Hey guys, I know it’s been awhile since I posted, a ton of life happening so fast right now. Anyways, even with the busy life, I’m still all about that indie life.

So when a friend wrote me, asking if I could place a post for her, and one that will help indie authors, I had to make time to post. Without further ado, I’ll let Christina take over from here.

Hello there! Are you a fan of free books? Do you subscribe to all the big name newsletters to fuel your reading habit? You do? Great! As an indie author who uses those services to spread the word, I can’t thank you enough.

Which is why I’ve created Bookworms Discover…

Read a book. Be Happy :) #Writing #amwriting #reading #books

G.L. Cromarty

I am going to confess something…I love reading as much as I love writing…and I love writing an awful lot.

So I thought I would share some excellent reasons / excuses to read a little more.

It makes us better writers.

When we read we consciously and subconsciously pick up all kinds of amazing tips whether it is impactful word placement, a descriptive style, or story flow, reading a good book will help it all.

Expands our vocabulary and intelligence.

When we read we expose ourselves to new words, new ideas, and new perspectives. Every time we read a book we have an opportunity to learn.

It fires up our imagination.

When we read we meet new characters and travel to amazing places that can fire up our imagination.

It reduces stress.

Reading is known as a flow activity. This means that when we read we let our worldly troubles go…
