There are a lot of industry professionals with blogs, and being a blog stalker I’ve visited most of them. Some I check daily because they are so informative. Some are just addictive. 🙂
I’ve never gotten into the editor blogs, but I found a new one called the Evil Editor that puts a different spin on things. He spends a lot of time editing query letters. One of those I wish I’d found sooner.
The agent sites are always fun and there is quite a list of them–Deidre Knight, Kristin Nelson, Jennifer Jackson to name just a few.
I enjoy Miss Snark’s column. Very good repartee and she gives the skinny on the industry and business in an entertaining way.
Another site I regularly check out is The Career Doctor. Agent Irene Goodman gives solid advice in a straightforward manner. I’ve learned a lot from this woman but I’ll be the first to admit I have a lot more to learn.
So any of you have favorite industry sites you visit?

I didn’t know about Irene Goodman’s column until now, Jan. The only other one I can think of is Anna Genoese’s live journal blog. Don’t know the url offhand, but you can find the link on Miss Snark’s blog. And I assume everyone in the writing biz knows Miss Snark. *g*

Irene has a very informative column, Edie. I’ve visited AG’s blog before. She had quite a buzz going a while back concerning genre fiction and what was hot and what was tanking or close to it.
