If You Like LTWF…

27 Feb

Hey guys!

We just wanted to thank everyone for all of the compliments we’ve received lately. Our purpose in creating and maintaining this blog is to provide a resource for writers in the early stages of the publishing process, and we try to be as interactive and helpful as possible.

Now that we have some new readers, we thought now would be a good time to point out some features of LTWF that you might not know about or be utilizing:

Header Links

Contributor’s Page: Pictures and Biographical information about our current Contributors, all in one place.

QOTW: Got a question for us? Ask it here! Every Friday we do a Question of the Week based on questions asked to us here. We mostly go in order unless something is really pressing.

Contact: Are you a FictionPress author now on the path to publication? Interested in becoming a LTWF Contributor? Email us!

Side Links

Blogs: A lot of us talk about writing and our personal publishing journeys outside of LTWF, in our writer blogs. If you just can’t get enough of LTWF, you might want to take a look at these awesome blogs:

Mandy Hubbard has recently become a literary agent, but she’s also a published author! Her blog (at livejournal) talks about her books, both past and upcoming, and gives you insight into the life of a literary agent. She’s got tips on querying, formatting, and writing as a whole. PLUS, her archives tell an honest and inspiring tale of her struggle to publication, despite repeated rejection. Mandy never gave up, and boy did she get the success she was so adamant on pursuing. Mandy’s blog is great for anyone who wants to learn more about the publishing industry, or who is querying or plans to be querying anytime soon.

Sarah J. Maas is signed with a literary agency, and we expect her to announce a publishing contract any day now! Her blog is upbeat and interactive as she talks about her current projects and her insane travel trips (she was recently in Cairo, Egypt, and even more recently at one of the most haunted hotels in America, where she swears she interacted with a ghost!)

Savannah J. Foley is also signed with a literary agency. She blogs about her personal writing projects and life from a writer’s perspective, mixing zen-like outlooks with personal stories about life, love, and writing. She also owns her own freelance writing company, and occasionally blogs about the interesting facets of those contract projects. Savannah updates every time she receives word from her agent, keeping readers abreast of what it’s like to receive complimentary rejection letters from publishers (friends-locked, of course).

Sometimes it seems like Rachel Simon knows every single young writer out there! Her blog is peppered with fascinating interviews by published and nearly-published writers. She’s recently featured Alexandra Bracken, Lindsay Leavitt, Tenner Rachel Hawkins, and Jennifer R. Hubbard. Rachel is hard at work on revising her first novel while simultaneously working on her second (and third! and fourth!), and she often discusses the pains of the editing process while life –and school– does its best to get in the way.

June Hur is hard at work finding a literary agent, and shares every step of the process! She also hosts polls, contests, reviews, reader appreciation day, and posts hilarious excerpts of her younger work, most recently a fan fiction for Pride and Prejudice.

Biljana Likic is LTWF’s second newest contributor, but she’s already made a name for herself internally as the group’s go-to for excellent critique advice! ‘Billy’ posts social commentary from the fresh and snarky perspective of a Canadian theatre major.

Fictionpress Accounts

We put them all in one easy place for you! Visit our old (and sometimes current) accounts and see if you used to know us back in the day!

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

    Article writing is also a fun, if you be familiar with after
    that you can write or else it is complex to write.

    The new way to find somebody nowadays is through reverse phone search.
    The police are investigating the threats, as both have been delivered in
    a similar style and possibly by the same culprit.
    The reverse phone lookup directories provide free as well as
    paid options to trace back phone numbers.

    Greetings, I do think your web site might be having web browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however,
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, great site!

    Great article! This is the type of info that should
    be shared around the web. Shame on the seek engines for now not positioning

    with my site . Thank you =)

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a
    excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari.
    Excellent Blog!

    There is certainly a great deal to learn about this issue.
    I like all the points you made.

    There are some points with regards to the book which are
    wrong. You can find actually a few readers who’ve pointed out in The Tao of Badass review several stuff that the book need to somehow develop. One of which is that not all the factors in this book are suitable to all girls particularly for those women who keep their selves in their shells. As a matter of fact, they have stated that it just works best for ladies who are open-minded who are always on the prowl.Keep in mind that The Tao of Badass isn’t a magical book that you could acquire a sudden love and great sex quickly.
    After reading all of its content, you would have to place them to the test.
    Don’t forget that if you want to attain the finest love and also sex life practice and correct moves are needed.
