Books by Some of Our Author-friends #goodreads

 Authors help authors-- that's the way it works amongst writers and bloggers. In that spirit, here's my second post in the series of books by indie-author friends (first post here): some are books I came across, others have been recommended for mention.

 I'm adding only one link, but you can click through to the author sites for more options and also more books they've written. I've added a bit about each book, so if you see what you like, go buy it!

If you're an author-friend, or a reader who loved a recent download, leave a comment with the link to the book.

So here it goes, in no particular order: 

Shannon GrissomMonkey Made of Sockies

Want to smile? Want to giggle? Are you ready to return to your childhood? All you have to do is pick up a copy of Monkey Made of Sockies.  As soon as you see the smile on the monkey’s face, you’ll gain a smile of your own.  Each turn of the page describes why Monkey Made of Sockies is the favored toy at Grammy’s house.  The vibrant illustrations and lyrical text make reading his book a truly enjoyable experience.

I love this idea and feel like it could be a regular feature here at the A-Z. Authors could send us their links and art, etc., someone would compile them, and then when we had enough for a post - bang - up she goes. Maybe Saturdays, once a month? That would give the authors a deadline, and I could fill one Saturday a month with a feature!

P.S Authors, speak up here. Team, feel free to email me OR speak up here.

This is a great idea, will have to check these out :)

Arlee Bird said...

I'm with Tina on her idea about making this a regular A to Z Blog feature. After all, this is partly what this site is all about--promoting each other.

Great job, Damyanti.

I think this is a great idea and very much appreciated.

Marta Szemik said...

That's a great idea. I haven't seen these books before and always love to learn about new writers :)


It's surprising how many bloggers have books already out or in the process. There seem to be more people writing these included.

I know Allan's. The others I haven't seen before.

Trisha said...
