In my last installment of this series, I talked about how much I've benefitted from KM Weiland's blog: Helping Writers become Authors. Today, I'm going to highlight Kristen Lamb's blog.
Lamb is the author of Rise of the Machines and Downcast but is also well-known for her seminars and articles on the writing business. She covers a wide range of topic from branding, to social media, to writing contracts.
One of the key features for her blog articles is her humor. She's hilarious! Lamb loves to crack jokes using pop culture and her experience in competitive martial arts (she's a high-level blackbelt in Brazilian Ju-Jitsu).
Another thing I like about Lamb is how much she focuses on genre fiction. Genre fiction is stuff like fantasy, sci-fi, horror, romance, mysteries, etc. Basically, anything that's outside the normal human experience. That's very useful for someone like me who's writing a fantasy series.
So if you're interested in learning more about writing and also the business side of creating fiction, I highly recommend Lamb's blog. It's entertaining and informative at the same time.
