First an announcement: Stories for Sendai, the charity anthology for the Japanese earthquake, will be on sale until Dec.15. I’m still reading it and hope to review it by then, but I have a busy book-fair week and not much time to read. So hop now to buy your copy before it goes out of print/publish.
Also, Michelle’s books are at 99cents for the month of December if you want to check them out (I recommend Cinders, but I’m biased! ;-)).
Now, to links. A semi-serious post on how to write book jackets for indie authors. Apparently not everything written here is ludicrous, so have a careful look at it – and hey, it’s B&N! 😉
Kris Rusch on how to evaluate a trad pub company.
David Gaughran on how a bestselling self-published novel inexplicably disappears from Amazon UK. And I’m still struggling with the whole thing. Yikes.
Literary Lab on research! You know, that thing you’re supposed to do to write better… something I discovered only lately when I decided to write historical novels? 😉 Yeah, I’m still struggling with that!
Blood Red Pencil on Kindle and Smashwords quirks. Yeah, we all deal with the MeatGrinder and whatever KDP calls its system…
On agents and editors: Passive Guy, Dean Wesley Smith (on agents) and how we should demand some respect from editors (again Dean Wesley Smith) and hope for a writer-friendly trad publishing (Kris Rusch).
A guest post at Joe Konrath about e-book prices and the adventure of an indie.
Finally Writers Beware destroys some myths on finding agents and publishers.
Hopping off to my book fair… Have a great day! 🙂
