Not only does it aid immensely in researching for writing, but it also connects authors in invaluable ways. Here’s a nice list of Facebook groups specifically geared toward indie authors.

6. Study: Read Romance, Be Sensitive – Do the result of this study, that people who read romance tend to be more sensitive to emotions in others, surprise you? It doesn’t me, but then again, I’m probably biased.

7. Colin Firth Was Supposed to Be What? – Yes, and now to leave all of my fellow Pride & Prejudice fans with something to drool over, read this to find out how that lake scene was really supposed to go down.

Whatcha Think?
