What I’ve Enjoyed Reading
- Allen’s (he seems to have no last name) post on whether authors should publish their work for free on blogs, and whether that will ever lead to making a profit. It’s a very good question, with no real answers, just hope.
- Congratulations to Lady Jabberwocky on her 500th blog post. Her blog is well worth reading for advice on the craft of writing, as well as her great writing prompts.
- Some of Alyssa Harmon’s short poetry on Instagram.
- A bit of true crime Stalking Claremont by Bret Christian, about investigation into the 1990s serial killings in Claremont, Western Australia. Claremont seems to have some particular attraction for serial killers, prior to the 1990s, Eric Edgar Cooke had sought victims there in the 1950s and 60s, and in the 1980s David and Catherine Birnie took victims there as well, before Bradley Edwards committed his crimes.
