Over on LJ, author Cat Valente is going through some hard times, and is offering a novel literary experiment to make ends meet. Basically, she’ll post her latest chapters of her latest work for people to read and pay for as she goes along. I can’t donate at the moment because I’m kind of struggling myself, but I’m spreading the word. I loved Valente’s The Orphan’s Tales stuff, so I suspect anyone who can participate will get something beautiful for their money.
Speaking of something beautiful, have recently discovered Goodreads. Where have you been all my life?? I like it, though it feels a bit redundant with Library Thing. Anyway, I’m on both, so feel free to friend me at either.
ETA, because I am a moron — also, the Clarion West Write-a-Thon is happening right now. My buddy K. Tempest Bradford has met her goal of $1500, which is le cool, but other participating writers could use the encouragement, and CW could use the cash. So sign up!
