Ten-Minute Blog Break - 28th July

Logo by Melany Pietersen
I'm back, although you may not have noticed I was missing (given that K.M. Lockwood did such a great job with last week's Blog Break). I'm also a bit distracted, having rashly agreed to be on the panel for tonight's London Pulse event on trolling (see here for more details about that). Must. Try. To. Focus.

Not content with covering for me, K.M. Lockwood has also been working on her own blog, posting an informative interview with Suzie Wilde. Suzie is publishing her latest book via Unbound, a hybrid publisher/crowdfunding platform with an innovative approach to reader engagement.

I love graphic novels, and it's great to see so many people busy on their own. Over at Big Little Tales, Anne-Marie Perks shares her work-in-progress Wolf Girl.

The indefatigable Sarah McIntyre continues to push forward with her #PicturesMeanBusiness campaign, sharing some jaw-dropping stories of clueless writers on her blog. And fittingly (given their equal billing on book jackets), Sarah will be sharing the keynote podium with Philip Reeve at our excellent November Conference.

Addy Farmer's having a great chat with fellow Scoobie Pat Walsh on Notes from the Slushpile. Find out all about Pat's creative process and get some top writing tips into the bargain.

Finally, it seems that Sarah Towle is about to take a month-long lie-down after her Kickstarter campaign. But before she does, there's a blog post of thanks to all her collaborators and a reflection on How the Digital Ecosystem Promotes Generosity.


Nick Cross is an Undiscovered Voices winner and has recently received the SCBWI Magazine Merit Award, for his short story The Last Typewriter.

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
