I'm an inveterate cyber book-marker. You know, that blog I want to remember, the page which will make a great reference for a new story, information to re-use for something (not sure just what), websites to study, conferences to consider attending, how-to's for ebook publishing and covers, marketing tips...and on and on and on. Not to say I don't ever go back and check one out, but I confess I don't make as much use of them as I should.
So I'll share some with you. (I know you're out there 'cause I see the viewer stats for this blog!) There's a great crop of sites bookmarked under the label "Dictionaries". To wit:
Internet Slang and Dictionary Translator
Behind the Name: the Etymology and History of First Names
Just a Few Words That They Used
(Civil War Slang)
Twists, Slugs, and Roscoes: A Glossary of Hard-Boiled Slang
British Slang: 19th Century Lower Class and Underworld
Urban Dictionary: Biker Slang
And speaking of bikers, I'm still open for volunteers to read/review a beta copy of the first book in my new Penelope Pembroke Cozy Mystery Series: The Bogus Biker. Visit my website for the particulars. I still have a few decisions to make before the series goes "live".
Anyway, I hope somebody somewhere will find just the link you've been looking for!
