BLOG BREAK Stealing Stories and Special Systems

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

Claire Fayers admits to stealing stories! But wait, it's OK, because they're myths and legends, as Claire explains in her post for An Awfully Big Blog Adventure.

If you're looking to self-publish, you might be interested in Ann Brady's blog post all about book covers, and how to make yours stand out.

Frustrated by the lack of feedback from agents, Pete Frederick has resorted to creating his own special system that they can use. Read more in his not-entirely-serious blog post Feedback from Agents In Literature (FAIL).

Toilet humour is front and centre in Clare Helen Welsh's colourful celebration of her new picture book Wee? It Wasn’t Me!

Finally, what got you through lockdown? Booze? Chocolate? Excessive quantities of cleaning products? For Tracy Darnton, it was her fabulous virtual book club, where writers enjoyed and dissected a range of children's books.

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.
