I’d like to share a post from The Publishing Coach who published this list of terrific blogs for authors. I visit these sites regularly and have RSS feeds to my Google home page. I always find great new resources and ideas from folks who’ve successfully built their author platform and connected with readers. Find the original post at: http://www.self-publishing-coach.com/top-ten-blogs-for-authors.html. I’ve also added one of my own favorites at the end of the list: #11: Jo Ann’s pick.
