|J.K. Rowling knew a thing or two about good plots!|
This week The Passive Voice linked to a guest post on Laura Howard’s blog by author Anthea Lawson titled Is Traditional Publishing a Happily Ever After? She was a traditionally published author who is now going the indie route, and her post is quite insightful.
Meanwhile, the folks as Middle-Earth News did a great piece on the fact that Stephen Colbert is a ginormous Tolkien fan (who knew?). He even has a part in the upcoming film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Middle-Earth News also featured a new TV spot for the upcoming film, which you can view here.
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell has retaken #1 fantasy ranking on Amazon, while The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern remains #1 novel in historical fantasy.
Until next week, good tidings and good day!
