For writers, I give you this quote from Kristine Kathryn Rusch:
“Ultimately, though, it’s not about money. It’s about creativity and control. If you want to be creative, original, and surprising as a writer, then publish indie. If you want to forge your own path to bestsellerdom, publish indie. Indie allows for creativity and control.” – See more at: http://kriswrites.com/2013/08/14/the-business-rusch-the-biggest-news-of-the-summer/#sthash.PoVQyQS1.dpuf
Also for writers of short fiction, poetry, and more…

For Readers, and Devotees of Oz, I give you:
All the Oz books, the original 14 titles written by L. Frank Baum, free online. One of the characters in my science fiction story Plant Life was inspired by the Vegetable Princess in Baum’s stories, and I spent many delighted hours dwelling in Oz with Dorothy, Betsy, Ozma, and many more unforgettable characters…
And for general amusement and because the Internet demands a kitteh picture every so often:
Ok, that’s not a today discovery, it’s several years old, but I miss my cats, and besides, the idea of a kitten on coffee is making me giggle.
