Links I love

What’s in store for your weekend? I’m looking forward to a combination of work and play these next few days. I hope YOU have something to look forward to.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • Flash sale happening now: get your Craftsy Premium Membership for only $0.99 for your first full year (normally $89.99). Of course there’s great home and craft content here, but they also have a surprising number of writing courses.

Don’t miss these posts:

Upcoming Events:

  • May 19: Summer Reading Guide Unboxing: This is the best book party on the interwebs! In a ninety-minute live session, I reveal every title in the Summer Reading Guide, and tell readers why I chose it. This members-only event is for our Modern Mrs Darcy Book Clubbers and What Should I Read Next patrons. Members get the guide just after the Unboxing—which means they get it four days early, with bonus content.
  • May 23: 2022 MMD Summer Reading Guide releases! Details here.

You can find more upcoming events here.

Have a great weekend!

    Loved the article about nonfiction trade publishers, totally spot on! Also note that many have very small marketing departments with many books to promote, so if
    your book gets published in a newspaper, magazine, on tv, or you are doing an interview or speaking at an event, LET THEM KNOW. They will promote on their social media sites as well.
    If you have a decent social media following you have a better chance for a bookstore wanting you there.

    I absolutely loved the tea story. Great story and great artwork. I’ve never heard of Longreads so I’ll be checking out more stories there!

    I love the article on finding your personal style. I’m going to go through my spring/summer clothes with those suggestions in mind. I’ve collected many pieces of clothing over the past few years that need to be given away. Thanks for the help and motivation!

    I loved this week’s episode of WSIRN with Abbigail Glen. Her interview prompted me to purchase a book from Shelves, as well as the blue sweatshirt. So fun!

    I loved the “Home is a Cup of Tea” post… So sweet, and the watercolor illustrations are charming.

    For me, this will be sad weekend. A lovely lady in my Sunday School class unexpectedly passed away on Thursday after a brief illness, and we are all reeling from this loss. It’s a bittersweet reminder to hug your loved ones, and cherish the moments you share with them now…

    I’m a doodler. I need to doodle while listening. In high school I used the thick edges of my Latin textbook (which I had to purchase) as my canvas. It’s one of my favorite pieces. I never know this has a name though. Mostly I just wrote my name on the edges of books like those that lived in communal spaces like my office, to make ownership easy to identify

    Brennan’s article on non-fiction publishing totally described my husband’s experience publishing a book with a small publisher. And on a serendipitous note – I have Brennan’s book, The Oyster War, sitting beside me. I picked it up a few weeks ago when we went on an oyster tour in Point Reyes. Can’t wait to read it.

    Thank you for these links Anne! You find the most enchanting things (referring especially to the tea story)! Thank you so much for taking the time to collect these little bits of joy for us to enjoy! 🙂
