Have you ever been to a bookstore and rummaged through a bunch of books, reading the first paragraph or two until you found one you liked? Of course, we all have.  Well I'm hoping to cut down on your time by doing some of the legwork for you.

Since I began this blog I've offered a monthly writing contest to showcase talented new writers who wanted a new platform for their work to be seen.  I know of at least three literary agents and a couple of publishers who routinely check the results of the contest.  It's always rewarding to see people get noticed.

Now for the different part.  I'm going to attempt to highlight some lesser known or Indie authors work.  These will be writers who have either an e-book or print book for sale.  I will work with the authors to offer free books to some of our readers.  The details aren't finalized, but will be soon.

Stay tuned.  As a reader you should discover some talented new authors to follow.  As a writer you should find new eyes for your work.  I'll continue to post interviews and insights from the industries best and brightest, but I began this blog to help fellow writers get noticed and that commitment will not change.


  1. Gary- This is great news and I am extremely grateful for all that you have, and continue to do in support of writers.
