Sunday Places--Books and Odd

The last few Sunday posts have covered a wide range so I was going to cover books with this post but my good friend Kathy of Well Placed Words just blogged about books and her choices are fantastic. I'd add Writer tells all : insider secrets to getting your book published  by Robert Masello and Thanks, but this isn't for us : a (sort of) compassionate guide to why your writing is being rejected by Jessica Page Morrell.

Here's a link to a one line pitch contest with an agent at the Query Tracker blog: http://querytracker.blogspot.com/ thanks to Suzette Saxton of Shooting Stars. Thanks, Suzette.

Next, why I've been absent the past couple of weeks because of an unexpected event.

I hope the unexpected event is a good event!

You left us with a cliff hanger!

Sadly, Aubrie, it's not. That's why I "vanished" for a bit and am now returning.

Carol Kilgore said...

Glad you're back, Conda. And thanks for the link to the pitch contest. Sorry to read your unexpected event wasn't a good one.

Conda V. Douglas said...

Helen--oh my, I did, didn't I? Stay tuned...

Conda V. Douglas said...

Carol, yes, not good, but sometimes we learn the most from the not-good-not-fun events, don't we?

Enid Wilson said...

Intriguing...I'll stay tune.

Another useful post. Always interesting to come to your blog.

Interestingly - or not - the last time I came across a reason like "why I've been absent the past couple of weeks because of an unexpected event" it was from a fortune teller who was supposed to have been at our school fete!

Keep the posts coming!

Here's a stupendously great book, one of my all time favorites, How To Write Like A Pro, by Barry Tars. It's probably out of print. My copy is so ragged, torn an falling apart, I hold it together with Scotch Tape.

Happy trails.

Thanks forth links, Conda! :-)

Conda V. Douglas said...

Enid, thanks for checking back--coming soon.

Conda V. Douglas said...

Dave--thanks and thanks for the laugh!

Swu--I need to find a copy of How to Write like a Pro, it sounds fantastic.

You're welcome, Shannon.
