OK, I'm a slacker.
Since the week of prizes, I've spent all my time mailing out prizes.
I'm so sorry.
To make it up to you all, I have a surprise (bribe) so you forgive my Slackitude.
At midnight Sunday night (EST), I will draw a name and offer a free query critique.
As some of you know, a query critique is a marketing tool. How you market your book to agents or editors. So it's right up my alley.
A query needs to be gripping, summarize the story, and show voice. It must be one page.
Now, here are my favorite posts for the week:
Promoting others - Some work hard to promote the books of other authors because it's the right thing to do.
Book Promotion Tips from the Pros - Allison Winn Scotch has had two novels on the New York Times Bestseller's List
Kody Keplinger's ARC cover design for The Duff (yay Kody!)
Literary Twitter Census - GalleyCat has compiled a year-end census of the literaryTwittersphere.
The Blahgs of Blogging - The feeling you get when you lack the desire to keep on blogging.
10 Things I want to see in TweetDeck - While TweetDeck is a great tool that does so many things so well (the Love), it doesn’t do everything we want or need.
How to Market and Sell Your book - A unique business-oriented webinar for authors who have self-published books out, authors who have traditional published books out, and authors who have books coming out soon.
