I have started a resources page. There are a number of online resources I have found interesting or useful that I wanted to share. They are a mix of literary sites, publishers, agent blogs, author blogs, and more. Wow – there is a lot of information about the industry out there.
So that is why I started a page for these links as opposed to putting them all in a single post. However, I will list a few of my favorite ones below.
Agent Blogs: Nathan Bransford. Recently redid his site and added forums. A *lot* of information can be found on his site relating to getting published and the industry in general. The new forums have sections for industry discussion, Query Letter assistance, and much more. Hands down the best publishing industry resource I have found.
Author Blogs: Patrick Rothfuss and Brandon Sanderson. If you have read any of their works, follow them on their blogs. I enjoy reading both. Patrick is the author of one of the best debut fantasy novels I have read in a long time. Name of the Wind is a book I highly recommend. (Still waiting for book two Pat! Though now working on my own I am inclined to give a bit more slack in the sequel area.) Brandon wrote the incredible Mistborn trilogy along with being selected to finish Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series.
There are *many* other sites I have found and subscribed to their news feeds. Such sites as Fantasy Book Critic, the NaNoWriMo blog, and Query Shark all have a different purpose but make for an informative (and often also enjoyable) read.
Check out the page and see if there are any you like. As it says on the page, feel free to send me any additional sites you think might add to this list. I am sure there are others I don’t yet know about!
