blogs I IoveAs all writers do, I read a lot. So I thought it might be an insight for readers of my blog to know who I read and why. Perhaps another day I’ll post a list of the books and authors I read, but today I’ll give you a taste of the blogs I read regularly, if not daily. So here we go with an insight into my daily reading.

Have We Had Help: I have to place my good mate Jack Eason at the head of my list. Not only do we both share a southern hemisphere upbringing, but we also share a love for science fiction. Not only this, but our love for this genre was born from similar reading when we were young, well younger. Erich von Däniken gave us both something to think about, but I’m one up on Jack. I’ve briefly met Erik!

Debbi Mack is not on not only one of my favourite authors, but one of my favourite bloggers. I don’t know how she finds the time to write and keep a brilliant blog going. My Life On The Midlist just has to be one of the most readable blogs going. Do yourself a favour and add her blog to your reading list.

When it comes to book bloggers and reviewers, my ‘go to’ is Charlie Courtland. There is no better book reviewer in my mind and Bitsy Bling Books is my absolute favourite when I want to find a new book to read.

When I feel like some great poetry, my first stop is Moondustwriter’s Blog. Well, I know her as Leslie Moon, and she is one of my oldest social media friends. Make your day and days and read the beautiful words she creates.

Mary Tabor just has to be one of my ‘Ad Fabs’ With a blog called Sex After Sixty, how could you not be at least a little interested. Mary is a wonderful lady, with a brilliant outlook on the world. Do yourself a favour and add her blog to your reading list immediately.

Then there is Mary Crocco, who wears two hats, as well as having become a great friend. As a writer, her blog Pleasure Prompts is a must for me. Then there is Mary the astute book reviewer. Do yourself a favour and subscribe to her Book Reviewer blog, simply titled, Book Reviewer!

Stella Deleuze has been on my Twitter stream for a long time. Her blog Words By Stella are not simply from a writer’s perspective, but from an editor’s point of view as well. Just beware that Stella takes no prisoners. Her turn of phrase is delightfully sharp.

I’m sure many of you know Claude Bouchard but may not be reading his blog Ramble On. He is of course a Twitter giant, but take a look at his blog as he really has some great insight into the world of self publishing and writing.

Sirragirl is an editor who has a great blog and gives excellent advice to writers. Do yourself a favour and add her to your RSS feed.

If you’re an indie author or just want to keep up to date on developments in reading, publishing and reviews, Good E-Reader is the place to go. Just don’t get lost and spend hours on this site like I do!

Of course there are hundreds of blogs worthy of mention here, but this was an insight into my reading. Hopefully you’ll enjoy discovering someone new to read from my list.

    I’m first, I’m first! Er, to comment that is! :-)

    I feel honoured to be on this list. Very! And I know Sierra girl and Jack, as well as Claude. All superb people. I know I popped by a few other blogs, but I will have to check them out again. Damn you! There goes my evening writing.

    By the way: you’re not bad a blogger either. x

    Thanks for the mention mate, even though I hate you for meeting Erich von Däniken LOL :)

      Ha Jack!! Did I tell you I met Erik at a newsagent on a lazy Sunday morning in his home village of Beatenberg? lol :) *rubbing salt*
