Blogs, Blogs, and more Blogs--Words of Wisdom from Around the Blogsphere

Ever since I started on this crazy journey, I have cruised the countless blogs associated with writing gleaning information in order to have a clearer vision of exactly what goes on in the publishing world.

I've decided to share some of my favorite links at least once a week.

Here are a few blogs I found intriguing this last week:

Starting with Lynn Viehl at Paperback Writer, here is a very interesting article on what not to do when you query an agent, editor or publisher.

The Creative Penn has a great blog about Simon & Schuster's push to have their authors blog and build social networks.

Alvina Ling, an editor with Little Brown Books for Young Readers, was a guest blogger at author Justine Larbalestier's blog, and wrote about her daily life as an editor. The post makes for fascinating reading.

Timothy Long has an interesting new article on how he was inspired to write The Zombie-Wilson Diaries at his blog.

Derek Goodman has started posting chapters to the sequel to his novel The Apocalypse Shift on his blog. You can also find short stories placed in the same world. I absolutely love the first chapter he posted this week.

At Genreality, Carrie Vaughn discusses the one ingredient in the publishing equation people do not like to discuss: luck.
