Looking for a book or three to read this Memorial Day weekend? Well, the AETHER CZAR has an excellent selection of exciting books which are FREE or just .99 cents.
First I’ll start with the obvious: for some reason, writers are one of the few professions out there with a specific and distinct word for their inability to do their jobs. And a word that actually doesn’t explain anything. Correct me if I’m wrong, but you don’t see painters talking about painter’s block, or weight-lifters … Continue reading Writers Wednesdays
Mark Dawson's Writing A Page Turner is currently available for FREE on amazon. This short (41 page) book is filled with some really good advice backed up with examples of how to apply its lessons.

If this new Adam Lane Smith series is anything like his previous, GIDEON IRA: Knight of the Blood Cross post-apocalyptic quartet, then it will rock hard enough to make the rubble bounce!
David Gaughran is one of the more instructive indie-publishing gurus out there. I recently read his STRANGERS TO SUPERFANS and found it to be as practical a guidebook as it was inspiring a read. I will definitely check out the other three books in the series. As an example of how in-depth David Gaughran covers … Continue reading Writers Wednesdays
It was some six months ago that reports first started circulating on the dubious accuracy of the tests used to determine whether one had contracted the Chinese virus. They were dismissed as the concoctions of conspiracy theorists. Well, now it seems that either the tin foil hats have found their way to THE NEW YORK … Continue reading Phoney Tests for the Fake Pandemic
