Linking Up

Trying to be better with using my computer/writing time better. Got up at 5 am the past two days and managed a few pages of work.

But, a few sites of note that recently came to my attention. Might be good for you too?!?!?

Don't know much about the black LGBT scene in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, but Lauderdale Boi is doing the most to keep people informed of what's happening in the area. Good site.

Writers. Found this GEM of a site: A Newbie's Guide to Publishing by JA Konrath, that's chock full of notes on what to do once/if you're published. Of course the advice is good, even if you're in the wrting phase, so that you know what comes post-writing, post-agent, all that jazz.

Of course... for writers, the most important thing is the writing. And Tayari Jones always has great motivation up on her site regarding the writing process and making sure your writing is as good as it can be.

Finally, there are many MANY independent bookstores that stock books... and many times they can meet or beat the prices of online or chain stores. So a quick shout out to a few faves I've heard from people across the country: Outwrite Books (Atlanta), Lamdba Rising (East Coast), Books Inc. (San Francisco), Hue-Man Books (NYC), Karibu Books (Maryland), Esowon Books (Los Angeles), Skylight Books (Los Angeles), Unabridged Books (Chicago), and A Different Light (northern and southern California).

What are some sites or bookstores you've checked out lately that we should all know about?
