Writers’ Roundup: April 8
April 9, 2011
End of the week — Time for links!
- I’ve raved before about Peter Gostelow’s blog; he’s cycling across Africa. This week had posted one of his best stories yet, about traveling on the Congo River.
- Nieman Lab brings us a Q&A with Isabel Wilkerson about how she nailed the story structure for her (fabulous yet long) book, The Warmth of Other Sons. I was dying to ask Isabel these questions myself after I read the book, so I was psyched to see this interview.
- YA writer Kate Hart makes her first appearance in the roundup with a flowchart on how to get published.
- At editor Alan Rinzler’s blog, advice for Amanda Hocking (self-published diva who landed a traditional book deal) from authors and agents
Enjoy your weekend!

I’m in the lobby of the Landmark Hotel in Bangkok (free wireless) and had to stop reading that last link because I was trying so hard not to laugh out loud that my face got all red and screwy and then tears started coming out and it looked, I’m sure, as if I had just received the worst news of my life via email. Thanks for that one.
Thanks for the mention! 🙂
