Elsewhere

I have to unplug for a couple of days to get some revisions finished and prepare for some bad weather on the way. So that your trip here was not entirely wasted, here are some links to some cool stuff elsewhere:

Old agent/New author Nathan Bransford has come up with a brilliant solution to every writing problem that has ever existed. Well, except that one when something keeps you from writing.

Author Karen Mahoney is very kindly hosting a giveaway on her blog for two copies of my novel After Midnight. Stop in, leave a comment to let her know what you're reading at the moment, and you'll have a chance to win one. She's also opened the giveaway to everyone on the planet, so anyone can join in.

Author Bill Peschel speculates on why we writers play so nice these days in his article Where Have All the Good Literary Feuds Gone? I know, but I'm not telling.

Author Kris Reisz runs a regular feature on his LJ called Cabinet of Curiosities, and the latest entry about the Codex Gigas, a 165lb. illuminated manuscript from the thirteenth century, is beyond neat.

Weather permitting, I will be back this weekend. See you then.

  1. Re: literary feuds. I think they are still around. At least one topic is guaranteed to stir up a hornet's nest these days--Self pub vs. traditional pub. Toss that in the ring and the nasty words fly.

    Be safe down there! Cross your fingers and hope the bad rainy weather swings over across TX to give us some relief from the Core of Heat wherein we dwell. Rainy days are perfect for picking up a new novel and I haven't had a good excuse now for months.
