It’s the end of another somewhat successful week. And even better, it looks like fall is coming and the weather is getting to be a bit more to my liking. You know? Ugly and rainy. Anyhow, here are five links for you to read as you start your weekend.
1. Since I’ve done a couple of posts about marketing lately, here are 20 Questions to Ask Yourself About Your Target Audience by Ryan Lanz.
2. Have some holes in your story? Don’t we all. Here is a post by David Stafford on WritersHelpingWriters.com with some advice on Hunting Down Story Holes Using a Novel Journal.
3. I’ve never written a series, and sometimes wonder if I would even know where to begin. Maybe with this: How to Write a Science Fiction Novel Series: 6 Tips by K. Eason in a guest post at Writer’s Digest.
4. Here’s an article that’s a couple of years old, but still very relevant today, as Dean Wesley Smith takes a look at Publishing Reversion Clauses.
5. Finally, let’s end with an Interview With a Gatekeeper, as Kerri Arsenault at lithub sits down for a long chat with Nan Talese, arbiter of her own imprint at Knopf Doubleday.
That’ll do it for this week. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing. I should probably head back to my YA fantasy and get that word count up enough to start the query process, but damn it, there’s also a YA slasher novel that has been brewing in my head for a while now and really needs to come out, so I might work on that a bit.
Either way, I hope ya’ll have a great, safe, and productive weekend!
