What I’m Reading This Morning 7/4

I’m taking a bit of a break from any serious blogging today so here are a few links and thoughts about some posts I’m reading. Also, be aware of some fundraisers that are ongoing that I like. And don’t forget my own IndieGoGo fundraiser starts on 7/7 – more on that below and on the News page. I plan to write some blogs about editing and marketing over the next few days as well so follow my blog and keep coming back.

Someone posted a good link for words describing voices from MacMillan Dictionarny. These are useful to remember.

Dorothy Cora Moore discusses a plotting method used by Michael Crichton on Writers Helping Writers (Angela Ackerman). I think this is a great method and should be part of development when using Scrivener’s index cards. Maybe I’ll write about this topic soon.

Here are some helpful tips for planning a marketing campaign. I’ll need these soon myself so this is a keeper. It’s from StandOutBooks.com and written by Alexander Hemus whom I just followed on Twitter.

Allison Schiff writes on Publisher’s Weekly about Copyright for authors. This is great as I see lots of confusion from many people on this subject.

Updated with more links:

Ever wonder what the hashtags mean in FB? Thanks for the post Anurag Mishra!

Zoe Saadia shares another article based on research for her historical fiction regarding new world people groups and their cultures.

That’s all I have for now. Remember to check these fundraising campaigns I like.

Don’t forget, my crowdfunding campaign for The Bow of Destiny begins on IndieGoGo on 7/7. Like me on Facebook and view/share the posted campaign event. Follow me on Twitter (@ph_Solomon) to receive news and help spread the word by using #BowofDestiny when referencing my IndieGoGo updates. I plan to schedule several social media parties with possible gift-card prizes – dates to be announced. Preview the project video here or here.

Crowdfunding Campaigns I Like

Here are some campaigns I like besides my own:

Awakening on Kickstarter by Ciara E. Dimond – JUST 2 DAYS LEFT

Emerald Kipp & the Riddle of the Timekeeper by Claribel Ortega – 28 days left

The Blade Heir by Daniel Adorno – LAST DAY!!!

Planetary Energy Transmitter – this is in the vision of Nicola Tesla’s idea back in 1901 – 21 days left.

There are many great ideas and books that can be supported so take a look around at what’s out there and at least tweet or share them over social media if you can’t support them otherwise so the public is aware of them.

If you have some campaigns you would like to share then please leave comments below or Tweet them to me.

Crowdfunding Time!

I’ve been posting a number of updates on my News page regarding my upcoming IndieGoGo campaign. The project is almost ready to launch. As I posted this morning the video is live on YouTube and I’ve linked it to IndieGoGo. I’ve also been working on the rest of the information and rewards levels.

Here’s a few of the pictures I’m using from iStockPhoto in the video:
