Twitterific links are fed into the Writer’s Knowledge Base search engine (developed by writer and software engineer Mike Fleming) which has over 23,000 free articles on writing related topics. It’s the search engine for writers.

Friend and fellow mystery writer Margot Kinberg has compiled a crime fiction anthology: In a Word–Murder.  The ebook retails for $2.99 and proceeds from its sales benefit Princess Alice Hospice, in memory of Maxine Clarke, a supporter of and good friend to the crime writing community.  One of my stories is in the collection, too…my first attempt at short fiction. :)

I’m also included in a newly-launched resource for self-publishing authors:

Wordpreneur Peeps: 107 Successful Indie Publishers. Eldon Sarte from the Wordpreneur blog has collected advice from 107 self-published authors and compiled them in this attractively-priced  November release (currently at $.99).  His blog is also a helpful resource for independent authors.

Have a great week!

  1. Elizabeth – Thanks for mentioning the anthology. And thanks even more for your hard work and participation. Folks, she’s got a great story!

    Now onto Writing 101 and those great links… :-)

  2. Congratulations on that book! I will download it this morning. You certainly know your stuff.
    And really appreciate the Writer’s Knowledge Database. I used it Friday to write tomorrow’s post for the IWSG site. (Because when it comes to offering writing tips, I really need help!)

  3. As Thanksgiving approaches, I want you to know how thankful I am for all you do for writers. Amazing list, as always.
