Friday Five

Today: My five favorite writing/publishing blogs… my MUST READS!
One:  Editorial Ass – Information on everything from querying and contracts to trends and advances from an anonymous individual in publishing.

Editorial Ass: I work in publishing and I like to read things. Herewith: free association on books, nice things I ate, publishing, editing, and other nice things I ate.

 Two: Kidlit – Everything you need to know about writing, querying, and (hopefully!) publishing picture books, middle grades and YA novels.

A site for writers, readers and fans of children’s literature written by Mary Kole, associate agent at Andrea Brown Literary Agency!

Three: Nathan Bransford – If you’re an aspiring writer and you’re NOT reading Nathan Bransford’s blog, you’re missing out on a wealth of information presented in a fun and witty way.

I'm a literary agent with the San Francisco office of Curtis Brown Ltd.

Four: Kiersten White – Her debut novel’s coming out in a few months and she’s proof that perseverance pays off. Plus, she’s funny and candid and an average mom & wife who’s about to be published. There’s hope for all of us!

I'm a YA writer represented by the wonderful Michelle Wolfson of Wolfson Literary. My first novel, PARANORMALCY, will be published by HarperTeen in September, 2010, with two sequels to follow. Which makes me all sorts of happy.

Five: Rachelle Gardner – Honest advice for both aspiring and published writers. She posts info you don’t even realize you need until you’re reading it. Lots of great guest bloggers, too.
