What’s New in Publishing Blogs this Week

June 6, 2008 at 7:10 am | Posted in Blogs, books, publishing, writing | 4 Comments

After poking around the blog-o-sphere this past week, here are just a few blog postings we wanted to share with you:

In the past we’ve talked about the importance of word choice and making every word count and Phil Gladwin posted an awesome example on the Screenwriting Goldmine in his post, THE BEST DIALOGUE I NEVER WROTE . . . We really hope you check it out. It is so effective, it will give you chills!

Check out this INTERVIEW WITH HARLEQUIN EDITOR JOHANNA RAISANEN for information about Harlequin, its history, and advice for writers. You can find it on the Much Cheaper Than Therapy blog.

Eileen Astels, a Christian Romance Writer, posted a SELF EDITING FOR FICTION WRITERS CHEAT SHEET. We thought it was worth sharing. Check it out HERE.

For anyone with a dream, Claire Cook guested at The Lipstick Chronicles this week with an interview, info on her new release, and some thoughts for dreamers. To take a look, Find Claire’s post HERE.

We found this great new blog called Time to Write, and this week Jurgen Wulff writes about WHY YOU SHOULD WRITE ABOUT WRITING. Perhaps the advice shared can help make the process less of a struggle each time out. Click HERE for more.

And although this post is not from this past week, it’s another new blog (well, new to us) that we felt we should share. The blog is: Richard Curtis on Publishing in the 21st Century. One post worth mentioning, TWO WORLDS OF LITERATURE is worth a click. HERE.

Good stuff! Anything else you’d like to share? Please post the nod in our comments section so we can take a look.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Hello Bria, Jessica and Meg. I only recently discovered your website, but just added it to my daily reads. You have a very nice resource for writers.

    I also keep a blog from a publisher’s perspective at http://ckwebb.com where I write a lot about the industry, the process, marketing, proposals and other topics that might be of interest to your readers.

    I hope you will stop by.

  2. Hi there:

    Just wanted to thank you for mentioning one of my latest posts here. I hope writers find my study notes helpful, I know writing them is helping the concepts sink in to this thick head of mine.

    Your blog is a wonderful resource to writers, I’ve added you to my favorites and will visit often. Thanks for sharing such great info!



  3. Here’s another one that got posted today: CJ Lyons guested at Title Magic and blogged about THE SECRETS TO A PERFECT PITCH. Check it out HERE.

  4. Thanks for that kind comment!

    If you liked that one, you could well love the latest post – it’s an in-depth audio interview with Bryan McDonald, who was a core writer on Deadwood for NYPD Blue’s David Milch, and there’s an awful lot of nitty gritty about how they created those fantastic characters – loads of insight and real experience – I’m possibly slightly overexcited about it to be honest…
