SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column is a place at Shannon Muir’s author website open to interviews and guest posts from other authors. One thing Shannon firmly believes in for readers not only to learn about new books available, but about those who craft the tales behind them. As its name implies, SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column features writers from all genres of fiction who want their potential audience to get to know them, and their works, better – and occasionally may offer features from Shannon herself that support readers to discover words.
Own Your Own Tale ran as a limited blog series during May through July of 2017, exploring the concept of journal writing. It operated under the premise of journal writers telling stories their way with their words, and consisted of short commentaries to provoke thinking about ways to use words to tell one’s personal stories. However, given how deeply personal such writing can get – sometimes including text one might not want to share – this area quickly became challenging to explore.
National news headlines during that time frame, combined with Shannon Muir’s own concerns of not wanting to be seen as a substitute for professional counseling (which sometimes can also use journal writing exercises for therapy), the column ended after only a few entries. At this time, there are no plans for it to return.
All columns are now available on this website and you are encouraged to explore them to see if you may find any of them helpful.
