I've been catching up with the latest blogposts from my favourite indie authors today. Here are links to some of them …..

As usual there are interesting posts on Iridescent Publishing's (Travels in Elysium by William Azuski) website especially the quote from French-Canadian astrophysicist Hubert Reeves. http://www.iridescent-publishing.com/news.php

I've already got Accursed Women by Luciana Cavallaro in my WTBR folder and read one of the stories as a stand-alone a few weeks ago. (My review of Aphrodite's Curse is here.) Luciana Cavallaro is celebrating the anniversary of the publication of Accursed Women with a half-price sale through November and December which strikes me as a good offer. http://luccav.com/2014/10/31/where-did-the-year-go/

Michael Brookes' The Cult of Me Blog http://thecultofme.blogspot.co.uk/ is bursting with stories and reviews as usual and this brilliant Shout Out for Indie Bookworm. http://thecultofme.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/blog-shout-out-indie-bookworm-ebook.html 
Thanks very much Michael Brookes for the opportunity to appear on your blog.

Jonathan Hill has some more of his pithy reviews at http://www.100wordreviews.com/ and details of a GoodReads giveaway of his novel FAG. http://www.jhillwriter.com/blog/fag-a-paperback-giveaway The closing date is the end of November so still time to register an interest.

Lizzie Lamb, author of the hilarious Bootcamp Bride, has information about an author showcase at Waterstones in Kensington on November 13th. I would definitely be going along to that if I lived anywhere near London.

Kath Middleton, author of Ravenfold and Message in a Bottle, had a great story for Hallowe'en on her blog at http://www.kathmiddletonbooks.com/blog/a-haunting-for-halloween

It's been a while since I looked at Saskia Tepe's Surviving Brigitte's Secrets: A Holocaust Survivor. Her Daughter. Two Traumatic Journeys Blog and consequently have missed a fascinating story about a new source of inspiration to her: writer Irene Nemirovsky.

Family history mystery writer Wendy Percival (Blood-Tied and The Indelible Stain) has a great little story about one of her own family mysteries solved. http://familyhistorysecrets.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/the-lace-lady-mystery-solved.html

I enjoyed Apocalypse: Diary of a Survivor by Matt J Pike and think his website is amazing. There are several interesting up-dates on the blog. http://www.mattpike.co/wp2/  Matt is also the author of Kings of the World which I've got in my WTBR folder and it looks like he's making good progress with the sequel already.

Author Julia Hughes invited me to Words Unlimited for an interview which was a fantastic opportunity and I was delighted to answer her questions about my own family history book. http://www.wordspi.com/home/interview-with-cathy-murray-historian-book-blogger-avid-reader 

And finally,

Jenny Worstall, author of Make a Joyful Noise, has released a new novel this week. I'm just about to start reading The Funny Business of Life and am thrilled that she has agreed to an interview for Indie Bookworm. Watch this space!
