Wednesday Writing Buzz

IN THE NEWS: Woman allegedly pranks her grandma 45 times in day. Read more HERE.


Yes, I KNOW it's supposed to be WIP Wednesday, but I live in a vacation hot spot and people seem to think because they're on vacation I must be, too. Of course, if that's true, I've been on "vacation" since June 19.
(But if you could see my house and empty refrigerator, you'd believe it)

Anyhew...before I go to the beach with my mom today, I thought I'd share some cool writing links with ya all.

Drum roll, please...

***Camy Tang (whose new book I will be reviewing in a few weeks) has an interview up on how she first started writing and how she became published with Steeple Hill. Check it out HERE.

***Do you write historicals?
This Friday, July 10th - Romance University is having a class: Chaos Theory of Writing: Author Victoria Gray guides us through the fascinating process of weaving historical facts into our fiction writing. Check it out HERE. (thanks, Chicki!)

***Calling all authors!
Discover which libraries carry your books HERE. Very cool.

***Need help making a Book Trailer?
Check out author Diana Holquist's handout HERE. (Not sure if you have to be a RWA member to view it)
If you've never seen my book trailer, check it out HERE. (It cost me $10 total and took me about 3 or 4 days to make)

***Should you hire a book doctor?
Steeple Hill author Brenda Coulter shares her opinion on that subject HERE.

*** Want a List of books every writer should refer to BEFORE contacting an agent or publisher?
Check out this article by Joƫlle Delbourgo HERE.

***Want some great Industry News and Opinions?
Check out STET--the Back Space blog HERE.

That should keep you busy. LOL!

Now I must do a better job with my sunscreen today.

Enjoy your day!

Hi- I came over from Glynis' blog because of her tag. I tagged her from myqualityday.blogspot.com

Your link about the libraries was interesting. I think there are a few missing from my link, but I suppose I might be misinformed about some places that supposedly have my book.

The idea of a trailer for a book is intriguing. I think I'll need to do that. Good stuff.
