The Agent, The Author, and The Social Media Expert

1.  Literary Agent, David Van Diest, guest posts at The Write Conversation. He addresses 5 misperceptions about writing a book proposal.

If you're anything like me, this task ranks right up there with the synopsis. I'd rather write an entire book than either of these, "please publish my book," pieces. This post might give you a bit of relief.

2.  Multi-published, award-winning author, Cathy Gohlke, talks about Planning for Courage in her latest blog post.

3.  If you're reading this, you're on Social Media. Edie Melson, at The Write Conversation, talks about Eight Social Media Posts You Should NEVER Share.

Writers:  What is the one task you dread on the publishing journey and why?

Readers:  What type of information do you avoid sharing on the Internet?

Hi Susan, thanks for your Friday nuggets :) I tried once or twice to write a book proposal, but I never hear anything back, which is sad, because it involves a lot of work. I am selling most of my books in Europe now (where they do not even know what an agent is) through personal contacts and that is fine with me :)
One day (because of a post like yours today) I might try again...
Happy weekend my blogging friend.
