This was a great week in the world of publishing blogging, and I’m sure I caught but a few of the highlights.
Over at the indispensable Writer Beware blog, Victoria Strauss has a really fantastic and did I mention indispensable post on things small press writers should look for as they’re handling agreements and weighing offers. Know what you sign, people!! Be careful!
Moonrat also has a really interesting post on authors who are syndicating their novels online, and some of the things writers should consider when doing so. Know what you e-publish, people!! Be careful!
Meanwhile, in an article that would make Sean Lindsay weep, the New York Times has discovered that there are a crapload of people writing books out there. 400,000 books published last year, up from 300,000 in 2006! All of them fantastic!!! In the minds of the authors who wrote them!!! Exclamation points!!!!
And finally, reader Caitlin Podiak may just have written the most compelling essay on The Hills you will ever have the pleasure of reading. I won’t spoil it for you, but do yourself a favor and see which Shakespearean character Spencer most (and eerily) resembles.
Have a great weekend!
