Who would play Sweet Caroline? - iDoLVine | The Proper Order of Things | Scoop.it
As a writer, you always dream of your book being made into a movie. I'm sure many writers have even tried to write out the script to their novels. If they haven't done that, they must have at least thought about who would play the main characters in their novel.

Unfortunately you have to live in the US to sell on Scribd. It would be a great platform I think.

On being your own publisher

On being your own publisher | The Proper Order of Things | Scoop.it
Jeremy Harmer's novel is now available on iBooks. He blogs about the role of the self-publisher and discusses the uncomfortable feeling of promoting one's own art: "But Tara is her own publisher – as I am for my own novel. So no one else is going to do the leg work except her – or me. But it feels awkward. "

I Wrote a Book. Now What? | The Proper Order of Things | Scoop.it

Telescopic text is a fun tool to play with when you have writer's block. As I will try to show with my simple sentence, "I wrote a book," it can also be a marketing tool for writers.

"In another post, I mentioned how much I was loving Tara Benwell’s book, and how I decided to buy a few extra copies to be able to “spread the wealth”. I finished The Proper Order of Things last month and really enjoyed it, both because it’s amazing to admire a friend’s work of art, but also because it was a beautifully-crafted story (…check out the link above for a full intro)."
