This is for Day 3 of the Author Blog Challenge.
are the writers you most admire? Who are your writing
This has always been a difficult question for me to answer. I don't read any particular writer exclusively and I don't find any one specific writer someone I want to aspire to become. I read all different genres of writing and all different styles and voices. There are so many wonderful writers out there that it is impossible to choose even just a few as influences on me or as specific writers that I admire.
I guess, lately, I am most impressed with my indie writing friends who are getting their stories out there, marketing them all by themselves and being successful. I read their novels and am impressed that they have managed to produce such fabulous writing without the aid of publishing houses or marketing money, and I am most impressed with the fact that they believe in themselves and their writing enough to find a way to put it out there for public consumption.
Come in and take a seat. There is plenty to read here (or there will be once I get past my procrastination problem), including excerpts from the novels I am working on, some of my children's stories, links to other helpful blogs and articles on writing, and tips to help writers along the path to getting published! Come in, take a seat and learn something new!

I love this post for a couple reasons: You're your own person and you're so supportive of other indie authors! Thanks for sharing, Becky!
Indie authors have a place in this world, and if I were the publishing houses, I would keep my eye open for indies to sign rather than running their methods down with a steamroller. I'm a designer so publishing a tangible book alongside an e-book is something I am helping a lot of indie authors do (and I do it for FREE). Because we all need a little help sometime. WRITE ON!
Honestly, all writers that wrote a book that I loved, I look up to.
