It's Friday, and while that means Robert Smith of the Cure is in love, for you and me it means it's time for yet another installment of The Underpublished's Weekly News Round-Up!
I know, maybe you really have been following along with me here in this space from the get go. That's fine. Maybe you're too busy and over-scheduled, and are a workaholic, and so on and so forth. That's fine too. I understand, I really, really do. But let me just tell you that there are some real gems in this week's list of articles. Of particular interest is the last item, which contains lines from rejection letters sent to famous writers. You simply must check it out.
Ok, that's enough flapping from me for now. As usual, I hope you enjoy this week's catch of writing, book business, and book-related news and, please, keep writing, publishing, and reading.
