Bloggers with book deals...

Congratulations to Wife in the North who has just got a book deal! Her lyrical writing has been a keen pleasure I have hugely enjoyed over the last few months. There's now a posse of us bloggers with book deals with a secret forum - and over the last few months we have happily procrastinated by sending emails round, encouraged each other, shared whinges and victories and tips for writer's block and deadline hell. A few weeks ago we all went out to lunch and some of us carried on until the evening. I will blogroll my fellow writers shortly. But for now I'd just like to thank them for being good eggs. It's ace that the internet has unleashed so many new voices into the world and enabled us all to share the joy of writing, wherever we are, whoever we are, deal or no deal.

hi, first time i read you...
is one of your fellow bloggers with book deals 'struggling author'? . although her book deal is for an ace debut novel, rather than materials from her blog.
just curious if she is also part of the possee that meets as you mention.

I saw a little girl in McDonalds over the weekend, and she was so precious. She had light brunette hair, strands were coming out of her loosely-tied ponytail, and her laugh and smile were infectious. She ran up to a slightly older boy and said, "Come play with me." It was so cute and she eventually got the boy to play with her.

Well, I want to have a little contest called "Battle of the Bloggers." I wrote about it last week, and my readers were less-than-enthusiastic about the contest. I cannot be entered myself, but I want to host a competiton that, more than anything, will expose me and others to good blogs that we don't know about to date. Please visit my blog at to see the details. So if you want to nominate a blog for this competition, please do so. I don't really care who wins; I just want to know about quality blogs. Sorry if this looks like spam. I am just trying to spread the word.

Struggling Author is one, yes,its basically a group of writers who blog as well. Many of the group have already published at least one book, usually a novel.
