Don’t you love when your Google Reader is bursting with awesome information? So much good stuff out there this week, including several memoir-specific posts:
- What’s sell-through? Literary agent Jessica Faust explains why it matters how many of your books sell verses how many are shipped.
- The Creative Penn comes through again with 5 Reasons Writers Need to Embrace Technology. Those of you who’ve been ignoring the obvious — that people are online and those people could buy your book — you know who you are!
- Joyce Carol Oates, who has published more than 50 novels, is writing a memoir. This piece from the Wall Street Journal offers a glimpse into the author’s writing life.
- And your non-writing link for the week, intended to make you care that newspapers are dying! Via Romenesko, every journo’s fave site for media news: A new study shows most of our news still comes from print media.

Joyce Carol Oates is writing a memoir? Wow!
Fantastic links, as always. I think my favorite was the one about sell-through. I’ve heard the term but didn’t fully understand it. Thanks!
So far I’ve only read the Joyce Carol Oates report. If the other links are half as good, this is a great collection. Thank you very much for putting it together.
