Launching Pad: Great Blog Finds

There are so many great blogs and great posts out there; how do you sift through them ALL? Well, here's a launching pad for you (just click on the titles):

Cut Thousands of Words: "There comes a time in every writer’s life when the need arises to shorten a manuscript. Ack! Not my precious words! Even if your word count is fine, most writers would benefit from tightening up their manuscripts before submission."

Guide to Goodreads for Authors: "You’ve finally done it!  Your book is done and ready for delivery to your millions of rabid fans.  Except those millions of rabid fans don’t know you exist."

How to Launch an Instant Best-Seller: "... launching a book is hard.  It’s hard to know what to spend your time on.  There’s a million and one different things you can do to launch a book, and I’ve found starting with a solid framework helps make it easier to come up with a solid plan of action."

How about you? Have you read a great blog post recently? Share it in the comments! :)
