Books I Recommend:
If you are interested in reading, viewing, or owning any of my book recommendations and would like to help sponsor my work and research, you can view and purchase them at my Amazon Associates Store. There you will find all my recommendations: everything from the books I review on this site to my favorite works of literature (classic and contemporary) to the best available resources in self-publishing, marketing, and building an author platform. On a more personal level, I will also list some of my favorite graphic novels, movies, and other products, which you are more-than-welcome to check out and tease me about.
By simply clicking the above link, you will see all of my recommendations and you will be able to purchase them from Amazon directly from my store. By doing this, you will not pay a cent extra, but I will receive a small commission on the sale, which would be much appreciated.
Thank you and happy browsing!
