I’ve decided that now is the time to make more writing friends – join the community, see what’s out there. This includes following a lot of new people on Twitter. For those who aren’t familiar with Follow Friday, the concept is to recommend Twitter followers to one another. Sort of a meet-and-greet for people in your networks. I decided to join in on Friday, and discovered a lot of great sites. I figured my weekly link check would be an opportunity to introduce some of these sites.

#Novelines. Co-creator of #pubwrite, #booklook. Author of thriller ~In Memory of Greed~”.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg. I wanted to cover everyone, but there were just too many. If I missed you this week, I’ll try my best to catch up next week. I will be linking each of those on my links bar to the right very soon as well, though I am considering creating a standalone writer’s links page soon in place of the links.
