For those of you in the rest of the (cold and snowy) U.S. -- it's going to be 90 and windy today in parts of L.A. But the crazy part... it's "cold" at night and we need our heaters on.
Some more original blogging soon. In the meantime, some of the hot links and blogs I'm checking out lately.
Tayari Jones is in Africa again, doing some writing and outreach work.
Kim Lawson Roby got a book optioned for series by Lifetime. That's hot.
Writers who respect their audience. That's hot. Tom Casiello, soap scribe, summarizes some of As The World Turns' 1980s "long story" written by soap legend Douglas Marland.
And the same rules (appreciation for audience) apply to novels too, according to J.A. Konrath's entry, Hail Caesar.
White Readers Meet Black Writers blog shares the list of NAACP Image Award nominees in literature.
