Go Set a Publication Date - super cute piece by author Mardi Jo Link about the nightmare of having your release date up against a legendary book. http://www.

Some inspiration from Don Winslow ‏@donwinslow, whose book THE CARTEL is absolutely killing it, and being made into a movie with Ridley Scott directing: "Dear aspiring writers: It took me 19 books and several decades to have this terrific year with The Cartel. Keep writing. Never give up."

Some excellent, calming advice from Mind, Body, Green: 3 Zen Principles That Will Rock Your World (And Make You Happier!) 

Tools and Toys ( a blog you should be reading if you like elegant, cool things) has a great list of books that everyone should read. Some old faithfuls and some new ones, too, but all in all, a great list: Some of Our Favorite Reads

As an introvert, Everything I Am Afraid Might Happen If I Ask New Acquaintances to Get Coffee was both hysterical and hit very close to home for me. http://

A couple of links to things from the Tao this week:

7 Minutes With... my dear friend Kim Law 

And some major news on the Nicholas Drummond Brit in the FBI front - a TV deal! 7.28.15 - The Kind of News I Like To Share

Finally, as always, this week in publishing: News From the Book World
