Writers’ Roundup

Hey regulars! And a warm welcome to newbies who discovered this blog because of an interview I did over at Mira’s List earlier this week. Glad to have you.

Links from this week:

  • The Christian Science Monitor reviews a new book about the history of memoir (appropriately titled Memoir: A History). One interesting fact from the story: between 2004 and 2008, the genre’s sales have jumped 400 percent. Now that’s something for us memoir writers to be excited about!
  • Literary agent Nathan Bransford writes about comparing your book to other books in your query or proposal. (I’ve struggled with in my own proposal, so I appreciate his advice.)

Happy weekend!

  1. You know, I have “The Elements of Style” but have never read it. For shame!!! To write a history of the book IS a brilliant idea.

    Happy weekend to you!

  2. Thanks for all the links. I’ll be clicking over to some. Wanted to say “hi” before I did, though.
