Friday's Findings

MENTAL STATUS: "Tired". Have not been sleeping well lately. Maybe too much caffeine?

As I was spending way too much time on the Internet and not enough time writing yesterday, I found some interesting things:

On The Writer Interrupted Blog, I saw a really neat free online program that helps you keep track of your submissions and writings and whatnot. It's called The Writer's Database. I haven't joined yet, but I'm VERY close. Check it out.

Literary agent Chip MacGregor has answered some good questions on the state of book publishing and the economy, which was insightful. (And I found out he also uses the SONY e-reader, like me)

Author Camy Tang was over at The Seekers Blog, talking about Setting Goals for 2009 and even sharing her own. Check it out.

And lastly, Author Debora Dennis is in a generous mood. Go to her blog and wish her a Happy Birthday and you could win a free copy of one of her e-books.

That's about it.

Have a great weekend!

Chip rejected my Mallory book - was so disappointed. He does have good stuff on his blog.

Thanks for the shout out about Debra - I'm thinking of submitting to Blade so want to check out her e-books.

Have a great weekend.

I spend so much time on the internet, I fear I may be turning into a cyborg.

I was over at query tracker this morning...what I think I see is that QT has the lists of agents... you can search for them. Does the WD do that? Anyhoo...

Great minds think alike! LOL

Oooh, I'm liking that Database. I may have to give it a shot. Can't hurt anything. Just be something else I can let slide and ignore *snort*
