Call for new linkity links!
What's missing from my blogroll?

As you may have noticed, I haven't been adding much or updating my various link collections over on the sidebar. And I'm sure that some of them have moved or gone defunct. More importantly, I'm sure I'm missing some great sites that should have a link here.

So here's a public call for links: What's missing? What should be added? Have you noticed any broken links? Leave suggestions in the comments field below.

Criteria for adding: has to be related to books in general, publishing related (including publisher blogs), SF/F (or any sub-genre thereof), YA books, queer books, good author blogs, awesome web-comics and/or ridiculous things that will make me laugh. (Because I need more reasons to procrastinate.) Also any blogs on indie music or NYC that you think I'll like.

Heck, YOU read this blog. You know what I'm interested in.

Hit me, kids!

I'm surprised you don't have the YA YA YAs on there! They're fellow YA book bloggers and fabulous ones at that:

Not a blog but a great resource site:

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I have a character-building blog where I talk about how to write characters. It's fairly new.

Rebecca said...

Oooh. I somewhat humbly thing active-voice.net might be of interest. We review kids/YA fantasy and scifi books with an emphasis on a feminist perspective.

KD said...

Go Fug Yourself has moved; your link goes to a site no longer updated.

Webcomic I love--No Need For Bushido. http://www.noneedforbushido.com/

Awesome writing tool/toy: Panlexicon. http://panlexicon.com/

Mock the foolish people: The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks. http://quotation-marks.blogspot.com/

Joe Sherry said...

Feel awkward doing self promotion, but in the Skiffy Book Stuff Category, my blog is a skiffy book / story review site along the lines of some of the other ones you have listed.

Oh, FantasyBookSpot is now simply BookSpotCentral

pseudosu said...

This is just funny, not writing related, but cakewrecks.blogspot.com is usually good for a laugh.

pseudosu said...

Also a writery hang out of sorts--
dennistriestohelp.ning.com
"Dennis Cass wants you to be more awesome"

K.C. Shaw said...

Holy cow! I'd never really noticed how many links you've got on your blog! As if I didn't already have enough daily clicks of my own. :)

I don't see Jim C. Hines's blog on your list. http://jimhines.livejournal.com/ He writes fantasy for DAW and has a great blog, updated just about every weekday. It seems to be the kind of blog, and writer, that you'd appreciate, I dunno.

And I don't know if you'd be interested, but I like AnthologyBuilder.com http://www.anthologybuilder.com/welcome.php, a site where you can choose stories (all reprints from paying markets) to build a custom anthology. I think it's a cool use of POD technology.

I see my friend, the fab Ms Diver listed... There's Dave Freer: davefreer.livejournal.com author of a dozen plus novels.
James Enge jamesenge.livejournal.com published in Blackgate, Flashing Swords and due out from Pyr in the spring.

C.E. Murphy: mizkit.livejournal.com
myself: Onyxhawke.livejournal.com

Author Michael Z Williamson: mzmadmike.livejournal.com


and i may have missed it but i didn't see a link to Writers Beware or P&E

veschwab said...

An incredibly awesome way to procrastinate :-)

Can't recommend Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast enough.

It's a co-authored blog. Jules and Eisha, the tag-team, are or have been YA/children's librarians (E recently got a job in a rare books/manuscripts collection at Cornell, though). Much (not all) of the blog's content thus revolves around YA/kidlit -- which normally I'd say I couldn't allot time to. But they do a stupendous job: they're enthusiastic, genuinely nice people, VERY good writers, and have impeccable taste in writers and illustrators, for adults as well as kids.

Only thing is: you may have to force yourself NOT to spend much time there!

JES said...

...and, having run off at the mouth, NOW I look to see if 7 Imp is already on your blogroll.

Er, it is.

Sheepish ":)" there!

debra said...

Here's one I recently found - conversations with DAW book authors.

Jeff said...

Querytracker.net
Duotrope.com
Ralan.com

Then of course there's my own wonderful blog where I blog about writing stuff http://jeffcrook.blogspot.com
and my blog where I've begun posting some of my previously published short fiction http://jeffcrookfiction.blogspot.com.

Margaret Yang said...

I'd like to second k.c. shaw's vote for Jim Hines. I visit his LJ every day. He is thoughtful, as in "full of thought."

Also, Reflection's Edge is a free monthly webzine with really good short fiction. If you like Ideomancer, you'd like Reflection's Edge.

Scott said...

No great links to suggest, just a question: I would like to put a link to your blog on my blog, but don't want to do so without permission. Sorry, it's one of those pesky things ingrained into me by my parents - always ask before you do something. Would it be alright to put a link on my blog to your blog? Thanks.

Ryan Field said...

Jonathan Lyons' agent blog, http://lyonsliterary.blogspot.com/,
would be a nice addition. (I don't think you have it...sorry if I'm wrong.)

It's quiet and reserved, but always smart.

Adrienne said...

I feel a bit awkward but because you asked: I write a blog about being a published author (MG/YA) where I try to give advice as best I can about the industry and writing in general. I offer Mr. Nathan Bransford as a fan (what was that sound? Ah, a name dropping . . .) and yeah . . . please check it out, if you like it I would be very flattered to be linked from your site. If you don't, I swear I won't be offended, lol:

Lynn Viehl's paperback writer blog

ianrandalstrock said...

I'm pleased to see SFScope already on your list, so I'll offer up my two personal blogs, just in case you might find them amusingly worth linking to:

ianrandalstrock.livejournal.com is my personal me-talking-about-everything blog

uspresidents.livejournal.com is my brand new, what-the-other-one-started-out-to-be blog that talks about the presidents and presidency of the US and is a stand-alone support mechanism for my forthcoming book.

Heather said...

My pal Kimber An just launched a blog focusing on Young Adult Science Fiction. I think she's got something there.

And if you cared to add The Galaxy Express (for those who love science fiction romance) to your blogroll, I would be honored.

Kimber An said...

Thanks, Heather! And, yes, the Galaxy Express is definitely worthy linking. It's the place to go to learn about, share the love of, and find the best books in Science Fiction Romance.

how about "I can has cheezburger"? the LOLcat website.

Deaf Brown Trash Punk said...

oh... since everyone else is promoting their blog, *cough* anybody is welcomed to read my crap. just click on my name and you'll see two blogs. that's all...

Vieva said...

Something that's interesting, at any rate - the web fiction guide!

beth said...

I'd like to pimp my blog: bethrevis.blogspot.com

It's about writing and character development and plot and genre and all that good stuff.

dennis said...

Well... I could recommend my blog, http://www.madnessabides.com/ , but it is still in its infancy, so instead I’ll just recommend an author for people try out for an entertaining pulpy sci-fi post-apocalypse story - Jeff Carlson’s Plague and Plague War - check more on him out here http://www.jverse.com/ .

I just discovered a site called Wordle that lets you make word art out by pulling keywords from any text (or a blog feed).

I pasted my synopsis for The Edge of Memory into the creator and made some pretty cool-looking wordcloud art for my blog.

Scott said...

Here's my latest blog that chronicles the writing process - draft by draft, good days & bad days, query letter, etc., from start to finish. Basically, it's a writing journal that anyone can read - my perspective, my process, and links to help writers.
