For Budding Editors, Grammarians and Writers.

This may be off the subject just a tad but I thought I'd mention Darell House's CD for children because of its overall quality but expecially, for this audience of writers and lovers-of-English. His Speed -B-B-B-Bumps and Other Poems for Kids and Families (DBTB Productions) has a few poems in it that us word-loving types might want to memorize with our children. One might even put them music and sing them! One is "Write My Story Down" but there are others with subjects dear to the hearts of writers, too, and the others are all gentle and fun. So, if you know of a family or kidlets, this is a good one to pick up for them for the holidays. Find it at or on Amazon.

The New Book Review is blogged by Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers. It is a free service offered to those who want to encourage the reading of books they love. That includes authors who want to share their favorite reviews, reviewers who'd like to see their reviews get more exposure, and readers who want to shout out praise of books they've loved. Please see submission guidelines on the left of this page. Reviews and essays are indexed by author names, reviewer names, and review sites. Writers will find the index handy for gleaning the names of small publishers. Find other writer-related blogs at Sharing with Writers and The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor.
