One of the writers in my critique group has started a blog that is well worth checking out:
Heather writes contemporary western fiction, and her second novel, Mineral Spirits will be coming out later this year. Although not my typical genre, everything I’ve read from her has been top-notch. The characters and stories really grab your attention, making it unimportant exactly where the book would be in the bookstore.
She’s also started doing a series where her agent, Robert Brown, has agreed to answer questions from aspiring authors. Cool stuff, check it out.
UPDATE: As of fairly recently, Heather’s blog (which had moved anyway) has shut down. She accidentally deleted it, and a spammer hijacked the name. Stink! You can still check out her website, though, http://www.heathersharfeddin.com/
