Friends and Resources

~ 01 Butterfly, Monarch_05We’ve all got to have friends and resources we go to for inspiration and information, right? Well, here are a few of mine. Feel free to visit and check them out. You won’t be disappointed!

Silver Phoenix Entertainment:

This is one of my favorite places to go for craziness, great artwork, and a really fun time.  Hailing from Oak Park, Illinois and known for his outlandish antics Charles Monisant is a name that everyone should know- especially if they like old-school comics, graphic novels, and art.

C. Hope Clark:

C. Hope Clark is probably one of my favorite resources for writing, freelance information, and to top it all off, she’s a fantastic author.  Don’t believe me?  Check out her website and what she offers.  You’ll be singing her praises soon enough.

Wholistic Fit Living with Dr. Daisy Sutherland

If you’re looking for information, inspiration, and humor that you can use in your daily life, this is a great site.  Not to mention, they are brave enough to allow me to be a contributor….

Absolute Write:

One of the best resources for writers, both professional and aspiring.  They don’t pull any punches here, and the information they provide allows the reader to get a real pulse on what’s going on in the writing world.  If you want to make a living writing, this is one site that is a mandatory bookmark.

Preditors and Editors:

Considering trying for traditional publishing?  Before you do anything else, check out the resources at this site.  While not exhaustive, it provides some fantastic information on the various scams, con artists, and idiots that try to fleece the unsuspecting author.

Tiny Buddha

While not a writing resource, per se, this blog is a fantastic source of inspiration, life instruction, and learning to let life simply be.  I’ve visited here quite a few times when the rat race gets to be a bit too much.

Kobo

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge supporter of alternatives to Amazon. When it comes to e-books, one of my all time favorites is Kobo.com They’ve got millions of titles, their prices are extremely competitive, and literally every single time I’ve dealt with customer service I’ve come away happy. Both as an author and as a reader, they are my go-to ebook seller.

EvilEDesigns on Etsy

Looking for some cutting edge jewelry that is both classic and surreal?  If you are, please check out e eric vulgate’s unique designs at his Etsy store.  Not only are they very reasonable in their prices, but it’s yet another way to support a great independent artist!
