Are authors people or the representative of their books? I enjoyed Ilona Andrews' post on reviews and treatment of authors.
Angela James has a great post over at Carina Press on what a revise and resubmit letter means.
Chuck Wendig gives the world 10 reasons your novel won't get published. Deb Nemeth shared the link on Twitter--do you think my editor's trying to tell us all something? Don't worry, Deb. I get it. I'll start emailing my manuscript submissions instead of tying them to goats. Call it writerly intuition, but I suspect your family's sick of goats eating their laundry.
Finally, Kylie Griffin has a thoughtful post on the Queensland (and really, it's even bigger than Queensland) floods here in Australia. My thoughts and prayers are with the people affected. I'm on the other side of the country, ironically, hoping for rain.
