June Roundup: Hot Tweetables at #WU


June has been a lively month of competition and corporate showdowns in the industry–the Hachette-Amazon debate drew responses from many of the big dogs in the industry, including J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, James Patterson, and Stephen Colbert. The rift has brought an influx of Hachette book-buying at Wal-Mart and indie bookstores who happily harbored those boycotting Amazon  (even when we don’t really know what’s going on behind the scenes). At any rate, while speculation swirled through the industry like a tornado, we writers kept doing what we love best–making music on the page. To assist you on your quest for truth, knowledge, and better craft, we bring you links galore.
















About Heather Webb

Heather grew up a military brat and naturally became obsessed with travel, culture, and languages. She put her degrees to good use teaching high school French for nearly a decade before turning to full time writing and freelance editing. Her debut historical, BECOMING JOSEPHINE, will release as lead title in January 2014 from Plume/Penguin. As an editor, Heather spends oodles of time helping writers find their voice and hone their skills--something she adores. She may often be found twittering helpful links, sharing writing advice and author interviews on her blog Between the Sheets, or teaching novel writing and publishing classes at a local college in her community. Another favorite haunt is the popular, award-winning site RomanceUniversity.org where she contributes to the Editor's Posts. When not writing, Heather flexes her foodie skills and chases her young children. You may even catch her gobbling the odd bonbon.

    Hmmm – I just realized that the two that caught my eye and forced a click-through on the first pass were How to Fall In Love With Writing Again, and Reclaiming the Joy of Writing. Telling? :-/

    Thanks for the roundup, Heather and Twitter Team! I love having your tweet stream flow into my fb newsfeed. Have a great weekend, Heather!

      Vaughn, I’ve been wrestling with some writer’s block these last few weeks myself so when I saw these articles I jumped on them. Sending you much rejuvenation and mojo, my friend!

    Hi Heather,
    Do you follow my agent, Alexandra Machinist, on Twitter?
    She often posts specific “wish list” items … books she’d love to rep. Just thought I’d share that in case you want to include any of her posts for your followers.
