Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge 1/12/2014

Posted 12 January, 2014 by Amanda / 4 Comments

Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and I shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else we’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books we plan on reading in the coming week.

On a Book Bender Recap

Meanwhile, in Amanda’s World

Ahoy! Despite the craziness of Bout of Books, I did manage to…

…write about ways you can self-edit your novel effectively on The Path of Least Revision
…give a “lesson” in being positive (hint: less bitching, more doing)
…create a Facebook event for my self-publishing webinar
…review A Kiss for Midwinter by Courtney Milan on FBNLT
…suffer through The Ceremony by Jaqueline D Cirque with Kelly for GLA

Around the Book Blogging Community

Ashley (Nose Graze) tells you why giveaways won’t give you more followers. I think it goes back to the readers versus followers debate. Giveaways might increase your numbers or stats, but they don’t increase your dedicated readership.

Amelia (The Authoress) talks about the abundance of irrelevant physical descriptions. Though I’m a fan of eye color descriptions (with restraint), I have to agree that a lot of description about physical appearance is unnecessary. When I edit for people, I often take out repeated mentions of physical appearance—too much and you insult the reader’s intelligence.

Auntie MJ (Maureen Johnson) tells us not to let what others post online affect you.

Bloggiesta will be here January 25th and 26th! Don’t miss it. I’ll be there, sharing my opinions and secrets about branding.
