Just a few quick links today.
There was another post here a couple of days ago, by the way. If you didn't see it, you can scroll down.
The most interesting comments I've seen this week were for a post called "Links on the portrayal of race and gender in the media" over at T.S. Bazelli's blog.
A bunch of Indie YA writers ("Indie"=independent, "YA"=young adult) have formed a blog together to share their thinking about writing and publishing and promoting young adult fiction. It's called "YA Indie" and Indie writers should check it out.
A couple of specific posts caught my attention:
- Why your Female Protagonist Doesn't Have to Kick-Butt to be Liked
- Pantsing like a Pro...
- Just added: Race in YA and The Hunger Games (which ties back to the first post above – I'll read any post which contains the phrase "I've seen a lot of racist crap in my seventeen years")
Oh, and I'll throw in a plug. My friend Alexis is a content editor for Grit City Publications, and they've just published three new titles, two of which she edited (one of them is the first episode of a serial – you know that's the one I bought first!). She blogged about it here.
