Share Your Shelf with Isabel Sterling

Each month we ask our featured authors to share their favorite bookish items. Here's a few of Isabel's:

1. “Writing “Helpers” – they may slow down the process more than they aid it, but I couldn’t imagine writing a novel without my two cats (Oliver and December) and my Beagle-mix, Lily by my side.

2. Scrivener. I write and revise all my novels in Scrivener. I’m not the most tech-savvy person, but I find it invaluable for staying organized while I write. Seeing each scene as its own separate file helps keep me from getting overwhelmed.

3. Notebook. Even though I jot down story notes in my phone while I’m away from home, I always have a dedicated notebook for each story idea. I can’t do anything too fancy (I’m always too nervous to fill a pretty journal!), so I go with the simple lined notebooks from Staples.

Share Your Shelf with Amber Smith

Each month we ask our featured authors to share their favorite bookish items. Here's a few of Amber's:

1. This is not technically a bookish thing, but when I’m writing I am surrounded by my animals (my partner and I have two dogs and three cats (all rescues), and so they are a big part of my bookish life. Here is our mischievous one-eyed kitty, Lou, camping out on my laptop.

2. I receive great writerly presents from my friends, and this t-shirt (above) is one of my favorites.

3. I am big on taking writing advice from authors who’ve been there, and these are some of the best books about writing that I’ve found (along with my plethora of composition notebooks – my favorite thing to write in).

Share Your Shelf with Swati Teerdhala

Each month we ask our featured authors to share their favorite bookish items. Here's a few of Swati's:

Cozy socks -
Who doesn’t like warm feet? Socks definitely add to my coziness factor which is a huge part of what gets me out of bed in the morning to write.

My year planner -
This is the best year planner out there. Being able to see my entire year at one time, and having it be dry erase, really allows me to dream big and plan for my entire year instead of just the next few weeks.

Candles -
One of my favorite candle brands recently has been Paddywax. They have all sorts of delicious scents and they’re packaged so prettily (while also being soy candles)!
