November Round Up!

November is, hands down, the busiest month of my life. It's been really quiet around Blurb is a Verb, but I finished my 50,000 NaNoWriMo words about a half an hour ago, so things are looking up. There are a few links I'd love to share with you:

I wrote an essay for Query Tracker that I feel good about: Knitting a Book is like Writing a Sweater. Incidentally, if any readers are at the Query stage of your publishing careers, I have nothing but good things to say about www.QueryTracker.net. The website is run well by excellent folks. It's one of the few web services for which I've ever paid to be a premium member. It was well worth the money.

I enjoyed this essay on HuffPo: Nine Things Every Publicist Does (Differently) That You Should Do, Too! It is a nice primer on the publicity process.

One more: a neat post on Galley Cat tracking the Goodreads success of an indie bestseller.

Now I'm off to edit a draft of a novel I finished in the spring. Because it's non-stop fun around here. Happy writing!
