And a very wet Bank Holiday at that! Though it’s been a fairly productive weekend for me – I finally finished adding all my 2013 reads to Goodreads (yes, only eight months late – I think I just had a blogging slump during the middle of the year).
Some links I’ve been meaning to post for a while:
- I liked Rachel Aaron‘s post about the cost of producing a professional quality book – and also think the cost of her cover was money well-spent!
- Keeping on the self-publishing theme, Courtney Milan did an interesting post on cover fonts. I love that self-pubbed books are looking so professional nowadays (and sometimes vice versa) – I used to be able to identify a self-pubbed book by its cover a couple of years back, but it’s fairly impossible to do so now, I think.
- CS Pacat did a fascinating post (and I say this as a non-writer) on how she uses exposition to add suspense. It’s one of those techniques I don’t really notice as a reader, but makes so much sense when someone explains it. And I can obviously vouch for the technique working in CAPTIVE PRINCE.
- And finally, want to read more about LonCon3? Here’s a rather comprehensive roundup of various LonCon3 blog posts.
