Freeing the voices in my head

Urgent! Read this, please!

There.  Now that I have your attention, I’ll launch into a shameless plug for a book I just read.  When I’m done extolling the virtues of said book, it would be awesome if you would go order it from the author.  You can find her right here on WordPress (and FaceBook).

We’re bloggers, which means we love to write AND read.  I will often stay up all night reading, but I went even further this time.  I read this book at the bar during karaoke in the semi-darkness, I read it while walking the dogs (and walking into a tree), I read until I finished because it is one of those books you just can’t put down.

Within the first pages, I was engaged, enthralled, eager to learn more.  The descriptive power, the word-play, and the characters pulled me in and I gladly submitted.  I didn’t just read this book – I entered the author’s world and lived there.  As any avid reader knows, that is the best kind of book, of Writing – to leave the (supposedly) Real World behind and submerge into a writer’s creation…That, my friends, is the Art of Writing.

Go now, seek out Melissa Crandall and her book, The Weathercock.  Support this author and her excellent word-crafting!  Enjoy!  😀

  1. I’m intrigued! Thanks for the head’s up. I will look for the book now.

    • Thanks, Susan. Melissa has the info in one of her WordPress blogs. I truly believe in supporting other writers, but don’t often recommend books. The Weathercock just grabbed me, though, and I had to give it a shout-out! Do enjoy it! 🙂

    • Hi, Johnsen! I’m not sure what “reblogging” means, exactly, so I’d better go look at your blog! hee… Thank you for supporting other writers! 🙂

  2. Great post. I enjoyed reading your blog today.

    • Thank you for coming in! Now I’m curious and will go look at your site! I haven’t published anything myself in years, and am working on changing that.

      I’m thrilled for my friend and wanted to do something (even this small recommendation) to support her. I’m hoping she sells many more of her fabulous book! 🙂
