I just ran across another free book to download, but don’t have time to read it right now. Glancing through it, though, I’ve moved it to the top of my “to read soon” list. Mugging the Muse: Writing Fiction for Love and Money, by Holly Lisle, covers a variety of topics–ideas, characters, dialogue, writing groups, agents, editors, collaborating, and much more. I read the first few pages; it’s well-written, easy to understand, and interesting.
I wanted to keep reading, but am in the middle of finishing a book I’m supposed to review for Thomas Nelson, and I’ve already requested another one from them that has to have the review posted on April 27. It’s a special promo, with only 300 available for bloggers, so I am fortunate to get an advance copy, but that means I have to prioritize.
Holly Lisle also has some novels available as free downloads on the same site, including Fire in the Mist, and Sympathy for the Devil. There’s also a book of essays, fiction, and poetry about September 11, called Together We Stand. If anyone has a chance to read any of these, let me know if you recommend them.
Anyway, I thought some of you might be interested in reading Mugging the Muse, so here’s the link:
