*UPDATED* - #IWSG - The Pay It Forward Book List edition!

Alex J. Cavanaugh

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
 
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

 

Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG
 
My awesome co-hosts for the December 2 posting of the IWSG will be Sandra Hoover, Mark Koopmans, Doreen McGettigan, Megan Morgan, and Melodie Campbell!

Hello and welcome to the end of the year.

Approximately 2 years ago to the day, I started The Pay It Forward Book List on my blog during a post for the #IWSG.

There are over 50 entries on the original list, which you can find on a tab at the top of this page.

There are some AWESOME titles and authors on that list.

But, there must be NEW AWESOME titles and authors that we should start adding to the list!

Don't you agree?

If so, please post your favorite books and/or favorite authors in the comments so we can spread some love!

Feel free to send your fellow authors/bloggers/readers here to add to the list or to get some new ideas to add to their ever-growing TBR pile.

  2. Great idea! Somehow I've missed this for two years LOL. And now my feeble brain is drawing a total blank on who to add to the list. Will have to return once I've had more coffee.

  8. This is an awesome idea. I have two great indie authors whose work I read this year.

    - The Forgotten Web by Sara C. Snider

    - The Purple Morrow by Dyane Ford

    Sounds like this could be the makings of a yearly blog hop type of thing, no?

  9. Probably my favorite author is Ivan Doig. But I'm going to put in a plug for an indie book that isn't quite out yet (I got to read it in beta): The Perihelix, by Jemima Pett (another IWSG member!). I spot of science fiction, or maybe science fantasy, but a great read in any case, and coming soon!

  13. Here's a few I've read recently that I can eagerly recommend:

    *Nowhere to Hide by Tracey Lynn Tobin

    *This World Bites by Loni Townsend

    *Ravens in the Sky by Will Bly (he's not on IWSG, but he is an online indy writer, and the book's great).

    *Being Human by Patricia Lynne (I'm actually only half-way through but it's REALLY good)

  14. Tails of the Apocalypse by Chris Pourteau & others
    Seed Savers: Treasure by S Smith
    Death in a Dacron Sail by Noelle A Granger

  15. I didn't see Stephen Tremp on your list. I haven't read his newest book Salem's Daughters but I thoroughly enjoyed his Breakthrough series.

  22. I'm a little late on posting my Pay It Forward:
    Clara Kensie's RUN TO YOU, young adult suspense novel. She won a prestigious Romance Writers award, but her Harlequin Teen book is still a bit under the radar and it's fantastic! http://clarakensie.com/wordpress/books/
