Sites You’ve Got to Check Out

I just found this site about Antiques and their uses. Before you think, “Bah humbug, I hate antiques and what do they have to do with writing, anyway?” Remember, you may want to write something within an historical context someday. One of the fascinating articles they’ve got up discusses how folks used to cook with quicklime (cooking without a fire) before Chef Boyardee made self-heating cans.

This is an interesting contest with Sarah LaPolla of Curtis Brown. I fear the chance to enter has now closed (I’m not sure on that, so don’t quote me) but it’s still a learning opportunity.

For authors of color, this might be lucrative. Check out publisher Lee and Low’s New Voice Award contest.

And last but not least, many thanks to Fiction Groupie for the link to Jenn Stark’s article on branding tips and trends. Check it out and have a great weekend!

    It is addictive, isn't it? I AM evil incarnate. BWa ha ha ha! ;D Thanks for stopping by, Lisha!

    Hey, you too, Rachna! It's been good and strangely productive, since I slept in until noon today. Somehow I still managed to do research for the next book, so I feel good. ;D And no longer tired. LOL

    Hi Victoria, just wanted to pop over here in case you didn't see my response to your comment on my blog. I'm not sure B&N is carrying Return the Heart in their store, but it is available on their website. I hope you enjoy reading it! 🙂

    Thanks for the great links. I love looking at antiques and think we can learn a lot about what to write in our novels simply by examining the past–no matter which genre you write for.

    Also like the Lee and Low contest link. They are a great company with a great purpose.
