Initial Post-Friday, August 14, 2009

This is scary--writing my first post for my new blog: I've had a blog on my Web site,, for a year, but I felt I wasn't reaching enough people. I also have pages on my Web site I named Rising Writers. The intent was to offer suggestions to those who want to write for publication but need encouragement. I've decided to combine my blog and the Rising Writers pages and expand my focus.
On this blog I plan to:
  • review little-known, self-published books that deserve readership
  • review books by well-known authors
  • recommend other blogs and Web sites
  • highlight writers who have written a noteworthy piece
  • offer suggestions to Rising Writers so they can accomplish goals they set for themselves
  • present information that others can discuss, meditate upon and contact me about

I want to post a blog every seven-to-ten days. If I feel inspired, it will be more often! Inspiration--what every writer hopes for without sweat equity!

I am open to ideas, suggestions and opinions.

Enough for now. I'll return soon.
