Dear Author has the wonderful Sharon Shinn's first sale story. Her Archangel is one of my favorite books - here's a link to her website, where you can read excerpts of her books.
Over on Word Wenches, Mary Jo Putney has up a great post celebrating the 20th anniversary since the publication of her first book - she talks about the changes she's seen, as well as what makes a writer hold on for the long haul.
The AAR Top 100 Romances Poll is open, and the first set of interim results have already been posted.
Are you in a book club? Nancy Martin has up an interesting post about book clubs over at The Lipstick Chronicles.
And if you like contests, check out these Fresh Fiction ones - links on the Knight Agency blog.
That's it for this week. Have a great weekend everyone!
