Jane Friedman offers "5 Steps to a Killer Book Talk." Now, we know what we have to do once we have a book to talk about.

And here's good link for about copyright myths: "'Busting' Some Popular Copyright Myths" by Susan Spann.

I don't know about the rest of you, but setting is one of my weakest points, so I really enjoyed Becca Puglisi's "4 Ways to Choose the Right Story Setting."

Chuck Sambuchino offers up "10 Tips on Landing an Agent at a Writers' Conference."

And just when you want to be proud of your accomplishments, Emily Ross warns about "The Seven Deadly Sins of Debuts."

You won't look at genre the same after reading "Ursula K. Le Guin talks to Michael Cunningham about genres, gender, and broadening ficiton."

Ruthanne Reid gives us "All About Commas."

Of course, you knew this already--"Can Reading Make You Smarter" by Ceridwen Dovey.

I dare you not to laugh: "What I've Learned About Heterosexual Female Desire From Decades of Reading" by Mallory Ortberg is the perfect place to end this link list. ;-)
