I finally did it. I signed up for Google Reader. Used to be I would click through the blogs in my blog roll one by one to see if the authors had posted anything new, but as time went on and the list got bigger, and I got busier, and then I fell behind in updating my list, and then I lost track of a few blogs I enjoyed, and then .... well the whole thing was becoming too much.
So In an effort to streamline I joined Google Reader and I smut say a few days in I'm loving it. So if you don't see my name in you stat tracker anymore do not think I've abandoned you, I'm jsut not using the links on my site any longer. Soon I'm going to take them all down and do a bit of reorganizing. As I repost the link to my favorite blogs I plan to highlight them in a series of posts and describe why I come back to read them day in and day out.

A bit of dialogue from Plundered Booty my WIP ...
"For the love of God , Hank. How many damn books do you need to know those islands are covered in palm trees and sand?"
And from today's blogpost over at the Bookends Literary Agency. Check it out it's a very informative post from the other side of the desk.
Of course, on the other hand, I’ve sent letters a number of times to writers who later became clients, and those who resubmitted and still got rejected. There are no guarantees in this business from either side of the desk.
In other news, I have decided upon my next project once Booty is finished. Details to come.
