Blogs worth following (part 1 of 3)

In book news!, writing on March 26, 2011 at 3:12 am

Last night’s “Books and Blogging” panel was fantastic! I was impressed by all three of my co-panelists, but this post is about one: Beth Dougherty.

Elizabeth Dougherty, author of The Blind Pig: a novel has gone through the process of self-publishing a book, and had a lot to say about both the stigma (real, but undeserved) of self-publishing as well as the trials of writing.  (And she introduced me to the benefits of the “Buy it now” button on a website.)

I recommend her writing blog at Contribute a Verse.

The book is  a mystery set in the not-so-far-off future, and it’s about food. What could be better?  Check out her  book trailer for The Blind Pig.
