For Writers - Bylines Writers' Desk Calendar

If you're as scatterbrained as I am and you're a writer, you may want to pick up the annual Bylines Writers' Desk Calendar Planner edited by Sylvia Forbes. I got mine in the mail today and I was jazzed to see all the dates on it and the little goodies especially for writers. Sylvia Forbes offers a great intro with some things I didn't know about (William Saroyan received 7,000 rejections before his first sale!) and some very inspiring words for writers. It's a tough biz out there and most of us spend time locked in our writer caves with only our thoughts and characters to interact it besides our families, so it's refreshing to hear inspiration from someone who is coming from the same place we are.

There's spaces for literary events around the year, conference pages, keeping track of writing deadlines, annual and monthly writing goals, submissions (Bylines itself is open to submissions as well) and some other inspirational words from authors who have submitted. I love this little writing book and it does indeed make a wonderful writing gift for the writers in your life.

The Bylines Writers' Desk Calendar is available in bookstores and online.

This calendar looks like something I badly need. Thanks for writing about it. I am also looking for a wall calendar with inspirational quotes (for writing) or something like that. That search is still going on.

My pleasure, Lori!

I'll keep an eye out for that wall calendar myself for ya and post it here if I do find it. Sounds like it'll be a great addition for the writer's treasure trove. :-)

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?
