You get a link list today. Aren’t you excited?
Actually, you should be. I’ve complied some interesting and thought-provoking links for you, and I even included a fun video. Enjoy.
It seems Amazon is flexing its mighty muscle against independent publishers – again. They’ve decided to pull titles from their website after negotiations failed. Yikes! Does make you wonder if they would pull that stunt against any of the publishing world’s big six (that’s Hachette, Macmillan, Penguin Group, HarperCollins, Random House, and Simon & Schuster).
Chuck Sambuchino, the guy who does Writer’s Digest Guide to Literary Agents, seems to have a new feature. Well, it’s something I just noticed. New Agent Alerts! If you are in the game of looking for an agent, check ’em out.
And for those of you in the self-publishing frame of mind, here’s a hopefully soon to be success story that is already a success in my mind: the story behind That Bear Ate My Pants! A long post, but lots of interesting things to note if you plan to be the author that does it all.
Until later, outline the hell out of your stories before starting to write. Or not. Just do what works for you.
Oh, and here’s that video. It’s old, but I never tire of watching it.
