[Linkage] I is for Industry

Note: My A-Z theme is linkage. Every day (at 7:00 a.m. EST), I'm going to list three helpful industry links per letter, and then I'll ask for suggestions in the comments—that way, we can pool our resources! :)

I is for Industry:
  • Kristen Lamb's Blog - This woman is brilliant, and the "voice" in her blog posts is second to none.
  • Shelf Awareness - I look forward to this e-newsletter every weekday.
  • GalleyCat - This site is touted as "The First Word in the Book Publishing Industry".

Where do you go for industry news?

Great links. I can't follow Kristen's blog. I unfollowed at one point because of something she did. But when I decided to give her a second chance, I signed up but nothing comes my way from her blog. Oh well.

You need to read my blog post next week about links and SEOs. I spent over two hours cleaning up a big mess last night because of links that went "bad" since I posted them. Yay for the social media workshop I'm taking. I didn't realize there was a problem until then.

I wasn't familiar with any of these resources - thanks for sharing!

Melissa said...

Great links! :)

I like Field Trip Friday's on YA Highway. They spotlight a few things going on that week with publishing and other related news. That and my daily Publisher's Marketplace email that I'm not sure is healthy for me to read, lol.

I stalk two already...now I will add the other!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I'm off to check them out. Why I didn't know about them is a mystery! Thanks, Carrie!

*adds all of these to the favorites folder*

You are awesome for sharing these links :) I think I learn about things from Blogger. I'm usually the last one to be in the know :P

Hi, Carrie,

How are you? Man I hate not having Wifi! I miss dropping by daily, but I will catch up every few days.

Hope all is well with you!

Thanks for the amazing links... they are so helpful...

I think I come here for Industry News, or at least for the links to sources. You've been great to connect us with all kinds of help.

I love Kristin Lamb's blog! Voice is especially tough to achieve in blog posts, but, you're right, she nails it!

Julie Luek said...

Great links this month-- thank you for sharing.

Clare said...

I don't follow nearly enough industry sites, so this is a great list for me. Thanks Carrie! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Stina! I'm curious about what caused you to unfollow her, but I won't pry. (I've unfollowed people for all kinds of reasons!)

Yikes! I'll have to check out that post next week. Thanks for the heads-up!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I've heard of Galley Cat.

Mark Means said...

I've been following Kristen for a while. She always has great advice.

Loving these links! :)

Carrie Butler said...

No problem, Trisha! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Melissa! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Oo, good call, Ilima! :)

I get the PM emails, too, but I rarely read them. Shh...

Carrie Butler said...

Hooray for safe stalking! :)

Carrie Butler said...

You're very welcome, Joylene! :)

Carrie Butler said...

I'm glad to help, Sam! Thanks for sticking it out with me thus far. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Me too! Padvertising was one of my favorite posts ever. LOL

E.J. Wesley said...

Galley Cat rocks! Kristen is the queen of Twitter, I think. (Seriously, she has a crown, pigs to rest her feet on, and everything--couldn't resist a little Alice reference. :)

Carrie Butler said...

No problem! :)

Carrie Butler said...

It's like having an assistant come brief you every morning. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Hey Michael!

Aside from battling wasps, I'm okay. How are you?

Eek! You're still without WiFi? How much longer will you be there?

You're very welcome! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Yes! We get a great sense of her personality. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Aww... thank you, Lee! I'm happy to help. :D

Nick Wilford said...

I'm not great at keeping on top of industry stuff, so these sound very helpful!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Julie. :) No problem!

Carrie Butler said...

I'm glad! :) You're very welcome.

Carrie Butler said...

They have some pretty informative articles. :)

Carrie Butler said...

She does! Thank you, Mark. :)

Carrie Butler said...

*Grins* Yes, something like that...

Carrie Butler said...

I'm glad! Thanks for stopping by, Nick. :)
