Friday Links

Happy Friday, everyone! I am quite ready for the weekend, even though in my case it will be somewhat truncated as I’m heading off to the Santa Barbara Writers Conference on Sunday for a couple of days of chatting with writers about their work. It’s going to be an especially poignant conference this year, as Ray Bradbury was a frequent participant and supporter of the event. Still, I am looking forward to it. If you’re attending, please do say hello. I’ll be at the Agent Panel on Monday at 4 pm and then at the Wine & Cheese event that follows.

But today is Friday, which means links for the weekend. I hope you enjoy them and that the weekend is filled with fun and books and maybe a bit of writing. All those little bits add up, after all.
