Written on the internet

Our weekly roundup of links we hope you’ll find interesting and useful.

  • We lead today with some of the best advice to writers we’ve seen in a long time. Warning: Rated NSFW for… well, you’ll see. (Muchas gracias, Karina.)
  • Our roundups include a lot of Nathan Bransford’s posts lately: in response to the curious person who emailed, no, he is not our agent or our cousin (smile). He is very good at sharing valuable information with writers. Here’s his take on how to write a novel.
  • Writer Marcus Sakey assures you that you can persuade 75% of agents to request your material.
  • Writer Audrey Beth Stein takes a look at publishing options.
  • Gina Frangello offers a very interesting and informative two-part post on independent publishing (Part 1 from an author’s perspective, and Part 2 from a publisher’s). Be sure to stay for the comment conversations.
  • Find out about new books — and share news of yours — at Galleycat‘s new Facebook tab. Details here.
    And here are two ways to entertain yourself this weekend:
  • Looking for that perfect mate? Here’s an internet dating site based on your taste in books.
  • Looking for that perfect subtitle? Here’s how you find it (and be sure to follow the link to subtitle-o-matic for more fun…)

We will be open to sample edits before the end of the year. Really. To those who have inquired, thanks for your patience.

Enjoy your weekend. Write something wonderful!

If you have a link of interest to writers that you’d like to see in a roundup, please email us or leave a comment.
