Reader’s Retreat Column on IndieReader.com
I’m a columnist!
I started writing a column on IndieReader.com this month. It’s called Reader’s Retreat, a literary spin-off of my Writer’s Retreat travel guides to the best cafes for writers, bloggers & students around the world.
I was offered the position after a press release for my Kickstarter campaign was submitted.
Note To Writers: Press releases are a great investment. I use Writer Tank for mine.
Here is the intro to my column from IndieReader.com
If there’s one thing both readers and writers have in common, it’s the appreciation for a quiet spot with comfortable seating and a kick-ass cup of coffee.
We’re not talking chain stores here. While we’d be the first to agree that the ubiquitous outposts of Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks do have some virtues, we have a hunch that the main reason people frequent them—to quote George Mallory of Mount Everest—is “because they’re there”.
IndieReader, the essential guide to self-pubbed books, is a resource for people who prefer reading material that is special and unique. We have a hunch that you might prefer your cafes the same way.
Every week I will post a new location. I’ve traveling for awhile now so there will be a few international faves. Be sure to check in every Friday on IndieReader.com.
