Authors You May Not Know–Yet

The writing business is one of the most difficult to break into. (into which to break?) Excellent writing and story-telling are not sufficient to publicize your name and what you can do. I do my primary publicizing through my website:

and through various book retailers such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.

I also belong to a number of groups of aspiring writers, including one called Backlist Books. One of the ways we spread the word about ourselves is to exchange links to our blogs and/or websites. Below, I've placed a list of some of the backlist authors I like. There's a wide variety of genres, so take a look at them and see if there's anything to your taste. You'll be glad you did.

Doranna Durgin,

Marsha Canham,

Jacqueline Lichtenberg,

Jeffrey A. Carver,

Jill Metcalf,

Terry Odell,

Maryann Miller,

Patricia Rice,

Pati Nagle,

Lorraine Bartlett or Lorna Barrett,

Karen Ranney,

Sorry, I couldn't resist replacing the verb-preposition with a verb.
