Earlier this week, the My Favorite Author blog picked my LJ as one of their favorite blogs, which tickles me to no end! They're also running a contest y'all might want to check out. And herewith, per the "rules" are some of my very favorite blogs, in no particular order because I take such things way too seriously and don't have the time to commit to a twelve step process of ranking.
Here are the rules:
1. Put the logo and rules on your blog.
2. Link the person who nominated you. (here)
3. List seven of your favourite blogs.
4. Tell them they’ve been nominated!
GALLEYCAT - If you want to know what's what in publishing, this is your first stop.
PUBRANTS: A VERY NICE LITERARY AGENT INDULGES IN POLITE RANTS ABOUT QUERIES, WRITERS, AND THE PUBLISHING INDUSTRY - Literary agent Kristin Nelson talks about the day to day biz. She tells it like it is...nicely, of course.
WHATEVER: TAUNTING THE TAUNTABLE SINCE 1998 - John Scalzi is a funny guy. He talks about publishing and shoots from the hip.
SMART BITCHES, TRASHY BOOKS - Takes one to know one, I guess, and I love irreverence.
JANET REID - Literary agent Janet Reid subscribes to the snarkier side of the force, and we love her for it.
THE GRAVEYARD SHIFT - A former detective, who runs a phenomenal blog with everything you might ever want to know about law enforcement. Seriously.
PUBLISHING TRENDS - The name just says it all.
I have a ton of other favorites, from my authors' blogs to those of other agents, but these are at the tippity top of my list. Enjoy!
