This week’s links

Debut YA novelist Albert Borris has a way with words.

Or rather, had a way with words.

This past December, just months before the release of CRASH INTO ME (Simon Pulse), Albert suffered a stroke so powerful, his doctors told him he was lucky to be alive.

And alive he is, having made a full physical recovery, enough to roughhouse with his two young sons and work out at the gym. However, Albert is still working on recovering something else: his words.

Click here to read more. He sounds like an extraordinary guy with a very special story (the book and his own).

Also worth checking out are the 17 reasons book manuscripts are rejected and The Publishometer: How to tell whether a manuscript will be acquired. You’ll laugh, and then you’ll cry.

Since I’m trying to focus on my new novel, I haven’t made the time to embrace my new love of prompts. But I will. And when I do, I’ll definitely make use of Writers’ Digest new blog Promptly.

    Thanks for mentioning me (17 Reasons Manuscripts Are Rejected) — I hope the post helps you and your readers get published.

    And, I hadn’t been to Publishometer until now — so, thanks for that link, too!
