BLOG BREAK Rules for Business

Nick Cross presents his fortnightly selection of must-read blogs.

With its setting in a bunker, Tracy Darnton's new book The Rules has become unexpectedly appropriate for our times. But could she launch the book in style in a world of social distancing? Read her informative post to find out.

Alex English has a new book out too - the first in her Sky Pirates series. Here she is being interviewed about it for Zoe Cookson's Madge Eekal Reviews.

And here's an illustrator also with a book out - John Shelley has just provided the illustrations for The Boy in the Jam Jar, written by Joyce Dunbar. John blogs about the importance of the book's theme and also shares some more of his marvellous one inch illustrations.

Time to get thinking about income streams now with Natascha Biebow, who is deploying multiple pie charts to help her plan how to Write Picture Books as a Business.

Finally, you know that feeling you get when you change one small detail in a novel and the whole plot suddenly unravels? Here's Lu Hersey blogging about how she grapples with rewriting after her agent gives feedback.

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.
