I write stuff for kids...and muse on writing, children's books, and the publishing industry in general

Stay Tuned...

Stay tuned, cause there's a busy few weeks to come on Rach Writes...

I'll be interviewing Caitie Flum, ex-agent intern and proofreader, for The Insider Scoop (and let me tell you, some or the dirt she dishes on the role of an agent intern and what literary agents are looking for is incredible stuff!).

I'm taking part in Elana Johnson's The Great Blogging Experiment, and will be posting a piece on "Writing Compelling Characters" on Friday, September 24.

The fantastic Jody Hedlund, author of The Preacher's Bride (due out in October 2010), will be answering some questions for The Insider Scoop.  She'll be giving a debut author's perspective on writing and getting published and I can't wait to hear her thoughts...

AND, in the spirit of my earlier post about a writer's public profile and building a platform, I'm going to kick off my inaugural Writers' Platform-Building Crusade, a way for aspiring writers and start-up industry bloggers to link together and start to build a network amongst themselves (following along with sites, commenting regularly, re-tweeting, linking between sites, etc etc).  I'd love to see you take part and will be posting more about this shortly!

Exciting stuff, and I can't wait to share it all with you!!!

All of this sounds good.

I'm also participating in Elana's blogging experiment. Can't wait to read your take on writing compelling characters (and the others who are participating as well).

I'm interested to see more about your writers' platform-building crusade. I'd love to take part.

Thanks so much guys. I started thinking about my piece on writing compelling characters last night, and have a pretty good idea what I'm going to say. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with in the Great Blogging Experiment!

The crusade sounds like a lot of fun, and I will probably join in on Elana's experiment as well.
