If Darwin and Hemingway were to meet over beers, this is the Group they'd settle on. PatronQuo.com Presents: A Knock-down, ego-crushing battle for survival among the literary-minded - and you're invited to join in the fray.
Pigeon Post by Arthur Ransome (but I have way more than one)
I'm a writer. I've written 10 novels published in both Canada and the USA by traditional publishers and translated by many foreign publishers into more than a dozen languages.
But I'm a person first; a reader second; and my life as a writer does not mean that I am nothing but a bunch of books stuck together with head, legs and arms added. I would ask you please to read my first blog post (Once Upon A Time: it's in August) on http:welwynsworld.blogspot.com
so that you can see I'm not here just to promote myself. I would like to join your group very much, but I don't want to have people view every post I make with suspicion, looking for the self-promotion. I am very bad at self-promotion, actually. Lisa (of bookworms) has suggested this. I'm new on Goodreads but I do have an author profile. Thank you.
Welwyn, thanks for the comment. BookBlogs is just a place for book bloggers to network with other writers and literary bloggers. Stay with it. The members here are great, and the site is particularly open-ended for those who want to use it to aggressively network.
