It’s day two of the Florida Writers Conference in Orlando and I have pages of notes and insights from this amazing community of writers.
In the spirit of sharing the wealth, here are four new websites I’ve learned about and can’t wait to explore:
Yasiv: Enter a book title and discover a network of related books based on different variables (genre, topic, etc). Helpful for identifying comps and readership circles.
Twin Word: Enter your keywords and find the other related keywords, including their ranking so you can select the most powerful relevant keywords for your content.
Temi: Advanced speech recognition software.
Kindlepreneur: In-depth info on marketing Kindle books
I’m converting my yard into a garden, one square-ish foot at a time. The goal: a yard full of edible perennials, Florida native plants, and hardy fruits and veggies that take minimal care from me.
I’m writing about it at YardenLove.com. If you find digging in the dirt relaxing and edible plants exciting, follow along on the blog or on Facebook .
I recently had the honor of working with Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital on a story about a remarkable patient. His rare genetic mutation inspired one of the JHACH doctors to launch an international investigation into potential treatment options and their outcomes.
You can find the full story here.
