Three of my favorite websites during OctPoWriMo:
- Shadow Poetry - absolutely the best place to learn all about different types/forms of poetry. I found this website the first year I started OctPoWriMo and they were going to be closing down their website for good that September before OctPoWriMo. I emailed them and practically begged them not to. I told them they were a great resource for poets and we needed them. They decided to keep it as a static site instead of the blog and community they were before. I was so relieved.
- Rhymezone - Quick and easy to find that rhyming word you're having trouble with.
- Public Domain Pictures - I use this twofold - sometimes when I'm needing some inspiration I'll hop over there and look through the photos and when I don't have just the right photo of my own for my poetry, I find a lovely one from them. Just remember to give attribution and link back to them. Thank you.

Now for today's indie ebook, drum roll please...
This is an unusual one as it is a story and poetry but the reviews just rave about it. I can't wait to read it myself. Oh and if you didn't know, I'm posting whatever indie ebook takes my fancy, I haven't read them yet. There just isn't anyway I'd have time to read them all before I posted them. So I decided I wouldn't read any of them until after I post them. I just think we need to support our Indie poets as much as possible.
A lot of these books are also either free or I get them from Kindle Unlimited. If you get any of these books free, please make sure you write a review for them. Even if it is just, "I enjoyed the book." I know some people have a hard time writing reviews but reviews are the bread and butter to an indie author, especially poets.
Head over and LINK UP for OctPoWriMo now! You know you want to, it's going to be a journey you will never forget.
