Authors Behaving Badly: Susan Wise Bauer on authors who were caught posting anonymous positive reviews of their works and bashing their competitors’ books. Can we say bad, bad idea?
JA Konrath interviews Karen McQuestion, an entirely self-published Kindle author whose book was optioned for a movie. Interesting reading for those of us who do not have a backlist or an existing readership to help make the leap into self-publishing e-books.
On the School Library Journal Blog: The poll results for the top 100 children’s novels. I’ve read about half already (including nine of the top ten) and will probably read aloud a couple dozen more to the kids as they grow older. I was really pleased to see several childhood favorites, like The Little White Horse and The Witch of Blackbird Pond, on there. This list was obviously put together by Americans because I do not see a single Enid Blyton book on there. *grin*
And just for fun with the kids, two art projects using recycled items: paper weaving and a robot.
