A modest author’s scrapbook of useful discoveries — Safari Friday searching the web for writers and readers
I came across Jerry Sims blog a few weeks ago. He describes himself as a relative novice in the world of digital publishing but he’s set himself a challenge for 2014 – to go back over the ground he has covered as a self-published writer and develop a deeper knowledge. His blog is an online scrapbook of what he has discovered.
So what’s he got that could be of interest to you?

Basically, it is a collection of links to other sites, but it is a useful smorgasbord of information from a writer who goes to a lot of trouble to make them available, but who doesn’t mention what he is writing about or how we can find his books. While I’m grateful there is no hard sell, I think he should be more serious about promotion. He is a self-published author – if he doesn’t tell us about his writing who will?
