weekend and links

Monday, January 25, 2010

My husband, being the amazing guy that he is, took me out of town this weekend because he thought I needed to relax and he was right! One of the weirder things about working at home is that your house becomes your office. So, in a sense, you are always at work--if nothing else, you're always carrying around your story in your head. It was nice to just have it in my head this weekend and not everywhere I looked!

I also have to say Thank You! to you all for your super wonderful comments on my readergirlz videoblog--there's still time to watch and comment, so if you're interested in winning one my books (your choice!) head on over there. You should also check out the rest of what readergirlz has to offer: there's a recap of ALA, cover stories, and reader reviews--in short, fun!!

Here are today's links:

Author Kiersten White on the process of submitting a book to publishers -- As someone who has had books turned down (is there an author out there who hasn't??), let me say Kiersten really nails the worry that we (or at least she and I!) go through whenever a book goes out.

Something I'm going to try and keep in mind: The Writer's Weekend, or the importance of not working all the time.

Two guest blogs over at Nathan Bransford's blog: one about trying to get published (again) , which is depressing but worth reading, and writers and "but"

Editorial Anonymous on How To Complain About Your Publisher in Public--I think the answer to this one is pretty obvious, but in addition to answering that question, she also tackles some others that have been raised recently.

Elizabeth Bear on writing, deadlines, and needing money and healthcare--a problem all too many authors face

Hehe that is very cute :)
Ms. Scott I was wondering if you could possibly divulge a little more information about the new book you have that's coming out in September, Grace? It sounds extremely extremely interesting and is already at the top of my must-be-read list :D
