‘Merica – Classic American Literature You Should Probably Read

I feel unAmerican to admit that I wasn't a HUGE fan of classic American literature. It's almost painful for me to read Steinbeck, and Hemingway with some of his titles underwhelmed, and don't get me started on Nathaniel Hawthorne. Unfortunately, during my high school experience, those were the titles that my teachers loved to force feed during American Lit classes. Sophomore year almost killed me by reading nothing but Steinbeck and Hawthorne, almost to the point of that I wanted to put all classic American lit in a box and hide it away, never to venture that way again. That is until my grandmother handed me Red Badge of Courage and the complete works of Walt Whitman. And I learned not to stereotype... here are my favorite classic American works, and the ones I think you should read.

The Itch – A Flash Fiction Short by Gillian Zane

The Itch by Gillian Zane

The itching began about a month ago. A terrible itch that burned and bothered the girl from sun up to sunset. At first, it was just a light itch, she scratched at it haphazardly, leaving bright red marks on her skin. People asked if she had an allergy, she was unaccustomed to allergies, so she shrugged and itched more.

How To Maximize Your Buy Links

As a blogger, Indie Author, or in my case, both, tracking and analytics is imperative to continued success. If something works, you want to know that it works and then you want to know what you did, so you can repeat it. No one is going to knock on your door and say "Hey, what you did there. It rocked. Do it again." But, if you see that people are clicking, things like links... a lightbulb can go off, and you'll realize that your efforts are paying off. If you can't tell what people are clicking, though...well you've lost before you even started.

James Franco Reads The Dead Zone and the Planets Align

The Dead Zone is a classic Stephen King, published in 1979, now available in audiobook and read by James Franco. The Dead Zone isn’t my favorite Stephen King, but that’s like comparing chocolate ice cream. With the narration by James Franco, they did a major push to get this one out there and “reread” by the masses. There is always a difference in reading and hearing it on audiobook, I think of audiobooks as performances – like a play of a book. And it’s even better when I’ve read the book, and now get to hear it on audiobook. Like an encore. This was an all-star encore!
