What’s New in Publishing Blogs This Week

Those of you who have been with us for a while at the Purple Hearts know that Friday is usually Meg’s day to post . . . and if you tuned in last week you’ll know that Meg is taking a breather.  Bria and I are amping up our business-side-to-our-writing-selves and will look to use the Friday blog spot to share those links with you that we have found helpful in the various writing- and publishing-related blogs over the course of each week.

For our first week’s re-cap, we decided to share:

From the Book Ends, LLC blog, author Angie Fox shares the “Three Things I Had To Do In Order to Sell.” Check out Angie’s insight HERE.

Nathan Bransford, literary agent from Curtis Brown LTD, has a great publishing and book-related blog. One post this week caught our eye, namely the one in which he discusses just “How Long Does It Take To Sell a Novel?” To read Nathan’s post, click HERE.  

We loved this next entry from Pro Blogger because although the tips listed are tips for bloggers, the advice resonates pretty loudly for writers as well. To read, the “8 Lessons Bloggers Can Learn From Sony,” click HERE.

Bella Stander posts great advice on her blog when it comes to author promotion and publicity. This week, she shares the results from an author publicity survey she recently conducted with authors actively ‘out there’ making things happen for their books. To read some of those authors’ responses, click HERE.

And, yes, we admit to being biased, but one of our favorite blog posts from the week happened right here at the Purple Hearts when Mary Buckham and Dianna Love stopped by to offer advice, encouragement, and support for writers trying to “Break Into Fiction – What It Takes to Get Published Today“. To read their excellent post, click HERE.

And don’t forget, at the end of the day today (Friday), we’ll be drawing the names of two lucky winners for Mary and Dianna’s generous giveaway.

One winner will receive a set of 5 BREAK INTO FICTION™ templates from the highly successful Break Into Fiction™ Template Teaching Series (www.BreakIntoFiction.com).

The second is a critique of your query or cover letter to get you one step closer to a dynamite proposal package.

We hope you find these posts as helpful as we did.

Enjoy, then go write!
