Before I start with links reflecting this week’s theme, I thought I would share a few tidbits with you that I’ve picked up during the week about three fabulous ladies.
I’m going to kick off the links with Lisa Mannetti and Kathryn Magendie, because both have new releases coming soon. I thought you might like to see their book trailers and jacket art.
Coming on March 10, 2010 is a gruesome collaboration between fiendish Bram Stoker winning author Lisa Mannetti and artist Glenn Chadbourne whose work you will find familiar, because he has illustrated several of Stephen King’s novels. 51 Fiendish Ways to Leave Your Lover is the kind of book that will leave you chuckling, then looking over your shoulder to make sure no one knows what you’re laughing about. Just a head’s up for horror fans: if you pre-order your copy from Horror Mall, you will get a copy of 51 Fiendish Ways to Leave Your Lover signed by both Lisa Mannetti and Glenn Chadbourne. What? Can’t wait? Watch the book trailer created by none other than the talented Lisa Mannetti herself:
If horror is not your speed and you’re looking for something that makes your heart soar, visit author Kathryn Magendie and the spirits of her women-kin in this poetic book trailer for her upcoming novel, Secret Graces.
Like Lisa, Kathryn put her book trailer for Secret Graces together herself. Kathryn wrote about her experience and tells you how you can do a book trailer for your novel at her post Secret Graces Trailer: You Can Do One, Too! She also gives a couple of good sites where you can download images and music for not a lot of bucks.
Ah, but you knew about Lisa Mannetti and Kathryn Magendie! Who, you might ask, is the third lady?
It takes a lot of courage to start a blog; trust me, I know. I was really excited when I found that my new OWW friend, Terri Trimble, has started her own blog at LiveJournal, Terri Trimble Re-imaging the Middle Ages. Terri’s blog is a wealth of information for fantasy writers, because Terri has done all your research for you. Would you like to know what people ate in a medieval society? Check out Hot Pottage on the Fire and her other informative posts about medieval society.
So now we’re at courage in our writing, and I have been successful in finding a few links for you.
Author Holly Lisle tells you how to take one more step than you think you can when she talks about everyday courage and the writer.
Where’s a great place to connect with other writers? Well it’s at the Writer’s Chatroom, of course. Moderated every Wednesday evening by Audrey Shaffer, the Writer’s Chatroom is open from 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. EST so you can drop in or out as your schedule allows.
