Dinosaurs, Monkeys and Authors, oh my!

Today I'd like to direct you to a few authorly places:

With the eBook revolution, are signed books going the way of the dinosaur?  No way! says Marcus Clearspring, author of Writing Investigated. He's got an interesting guest post over at Arlee Bird's place about   Electronic book signing.   If you check it out, please be sure to let me know if you think this is something worth trying. 

Here is an excellent post by The Fallen Monkey on the top three grammatical errors she sees in manuscripts, complete with a punctuation cheat sheet.  The article is concise, clear, and provides great examples. The Monkey is a  former high school English teacher, current manuscript editor, and all around cool chick.


At Thoroughly Smitten, you can read my take on one of the most famous couples in literature:  Fictional Felicity:  Rhett & Scarlett (by far the least authorly post of the four---be warned!)


Omnific Publishing has started an "Ask an Editor" feature!  Stop by and ask a question to be answered by a professional editor.

Electronic book signing? interesting....

I read about this on another blog, recently. I have to admit the thing that struck me most was how much it (currently) resembles a 'Jeopardy' contestant screen. :)

(I meant the electronic book signing. Not the monkey.)
