Celebrating real authors

I rarely have time for anything these days, let alone twitter, but I happened to pop on in a rare moment and discover the joys of yet another plagiarist author. Now it didn’t affect me personally so I watched with bemusement mostly. I felt bad though because it’s damn hard to write well and even harder to try to make a living at it. These quickie authors who either plagiarize or write crap for a quick buck annoy me to no end. It’s an insult to honest, hard working, GOOD writers. Those are the ones worthy of attention.

So here are a few of the books (and authors) that I think deserve not only celebration but another shout out to new and old readers to give them some love.

    No kindle here. :-) I do have a Sony but I buy wherever and transfer them.

    I kept meaning to read about Bob the Book but I never seemed to get to it. I haven’t read all of those, but some and I can second your recommendations. I tried to follow that plagiarism post and …. oh my god. How can people keep all that straight? It’s insane.

  • Throwback..whatever day of the week it is | three am

    […] these recent posts (mine , Jen’s, and Tam’s) in mind, I decided I’d do a few throwback posts of my own. […]
