Carolrhoda Books Blog

Information about their books, announcement of a new imprint, inside looks at publishing, book trailers, writing tidbits – it’s all here. Why more publishers don’t have blogs is a mystery. Such a great promotional tool. Carolrhoda uses its blog as an interesting and informative way to reach readers and potential authors.

Writer Unboxed

Writer Unboxed, filled with information “about the craft and business of genre fiction,” boasts a wealth of author interviews, essays, and guest posts about writing. Twelve authors contribute pieces, so a fresh perspective is a constant. Always something interesting to find here. Time flies as you jump from post to post, so allow yourself plenty of it when you visit.
