Updates and helpful Author links!

I’ve been writing! Whee! Happy Jenn. In the last week or so, I’ve added about 15,000 words! *Squee*

So, it’s moving along again. I’ve decided to just let it be what it wants, and fix it up later. But I’ve been thinking, can there be such a thing as Relationship-Thriller? I mean there’s a love story there, but it’s not a romance. I’ve kept away from the romance style love scenes. No gushy dialogue. They don’t say I love you at the end of book one. But it’s got that boy meets girl, complications ensue romantic style sub-plot. Ah-well.

Anyway, I’m updating because I’ve found a few new helpful links for writers and thought I would share them.

http://www.duotrope.com/ This is kinda like Writer’s market, but it’s free. I’ve only skimmed it so far and don’t know how good it is. So far, it seems helpful.

http://www.writersmarket.co.uk Unlike the US one, this one is now free.

http://www.prweb.com This is a site for press releases. I got a free trial through my web hosts, but maybe they have other offers you can check out too.

http://www.bookswim.com/ A “Netflix” for books. I’m sure there are other ones, but this one will give you an Author’s Spotlight if you send them a copy.

http://www.facebook.com Yes, yes, I know…yet another social networking tool. I’m there too. However, it’s free and exposure is exposure right?

http://www.librarything.com/profile/jennafern I have one of these too. If I haven’t posted your book, please let me know and I’ll add it!

This last one is the newest on my list. http://www.squidoo.com/jennafern/ I’m not sure how it’ll pan out, time will tell. If you are an author and would like me to put your book on my lists please let me know. I’m more than happy to help you promote your work!

That’s all for now, back to writing.
