I agree with your favorite choice, Jon. On the whiteboard in our home office, I have nearly that same list of 10 "culprits" and I tend to check each draft against the list to ensure that I'm doing my job.

Also liked Pam Crooks' eBook article. Although my novel has been on Kindle since day one, my publisher started expanding the distribution to the Nook and other devices via Smashwords earlier this week. I just had a new Smashwords profile created the other day (I'm so excited!).

Rachelle's list of things NOT to include in an agent query was entertaining. It's hard to believe such common sense rules are broken so often...which begs the question, How Common is Common Sense? :-)

Thanks, Jon! And thanks again for participating as an interviewee on my blog this week.

That list on the whiteboard sounds like a good idea, Phil :)

I'm finally getting to these and found Ray Rhamey's list very helpful; something to keep on the writing desk.

My goal is to read these all BEFORE next Friday. :)

Lol, best of luck :)

Love your Friday pics
Jon - I love your Friday pics and am a faithful follower. It's a grand and glorious thing you are doing for us writers. One suggestions, is it possible for you to have the links open in another window. That way, I don't have to keep going back with the chance that I slip up and lose your selections. Thanks and thanks again.

Re: Love your Friday pics
Hi Beverly, I don't think there's an 'open in new window' option for links here on LJ, which is a shame.

That said, if you right click on a link, a menu opens which includes an 'open in new tab' option.

Hope that helps :)
