Tidbits from the Internet

Here are a couple of sites that I’ve found useful recently:

Red Room. Like Goodreads this site acts as a place where authors and readers can interact and chat about books. Unlike Goodreads, this site has a more self-conscious literary feel to it, with plenty of black-and-white photos of famous authors. I’ve put my novels up on it, and am currently trying it on for size. To take a peek, go to http://redroom.com/

Critique Circle. As someone who has never taken an MFA course (but might do so in the future), it is currently hard work getting anyone to read my MSS. Enter Critique Circle. You can sign up for free, and I believe they give you 2 points to get started. To get your MSS critiqued, you need 3 points, and you earn points by critiquing others’ work. I have now had 3 MSS critiqued, and I must say I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of the critiques. To join, just go to: http://www.critiquecircle.com/newmembersinfo.asp

Have a great week!
