Pay it Forward!

WORD FOR THIS POST:
Denizen: (noun) 1. an inhabitant; resident  2. a person who regularly frequents a place

Before we get to today's exciting business, click on the new page above TWO HALVES for a small teaser.



Big Day Today! Let's PAY IT FORWARD everyone! For Details, click on the side button.

I'm very excited and have been thinking about the three blogs to post. There are so many to choose from. Today I will share with you the more popular ones out there that I enjoy. Next Friday, we'll switch to newer bloggers, but also very interesting and informative. I'll alternate each Friday between those that have been out there for a while, and newbies (less than a year old).

So, in no particular order:

1. JA Konrath: Joe Konrath is a great writer with multitude of experience in both the traditional and indie publishing. If you ever get a chance to read his short story pointing out the common mistakes of short story writers, you will pee your pants. It's available on his website under the FREE Newbies Guide to Publishing. Joe has been extremely generous throughout his career to help others with his knowledge. Very honest about his publishing experiences.

2. Pub Rants: Agent Kristin is a literary agent who shares her knowledge of the Publishing World. Her blog includes inside scoop on query letters, how to pitch queries, agency contracts and what all writers seeing representation should know. Very smart and informative.

3.Amanda Hocking: An indie author whose hard work and determination can be heard all over the internet. Way to go girl! The rate at which Amanda writes her novels blows my mind.

That's it! Those are my three for this Friday. I'm curious to see what you think about them and how many of you chose the same ones. I can safely say I am a denizen of these blogs and hope you find them as helpful as I have.

Happy Hopping!

The majority of the Blogfesters are writers and some brilliant ones too.

Tthanx for visiting and commenting on my blog.

I don't claim to be a writer at all - just a blogger dripping in sarcasm.

Great choices. I love them all. It is nice to meet you. I just tried to click on the "follow me" to become a follower of your blog and it said, "cannot handle your request please try back later" I have never seen this. Maybe there is too much activity with the PIF and Creepy query girl Friday bloffee. Anyway, I will try back in few minutes
