Gasp! I’ve been spelling roundup incorrectly for five weeks — with a hyphen — and none of you told me?! You know I’m finicky about grammar! (Had to dig out the trusty AP Stylebook.) I feel like I’ve had spinach stuck in my teeth for 40 days.
A handful of helpful links I came across this week:
- On the Author Tech Tips blog, 6 Things Readers Expect From Your Author Website. Exclusive content!
- Literary agent Rachelle Gardner offers a convincing argument about the importance of author platform.
- At Social Media 101, an important blogging lesson: How to format your posts so people will read them. I admit, when a blogger doesn’t follow this advice, I sometimes don’t visit that site again.
- An oldie, but a goodie: A list of Twitter chats put together by author Meryl Evans. A few that apply to writers: #writechat, #litchat, #platformchat and #journchat.
- 10 ways Twitter can help writers, by MiG Writers, a group of authors who write for young adults.
- Literary agent Janet Reid explains — in her oh-so-witty way — why she uses form rejection letters.
Have a great weekend!
