Friday Links

Happy Friday! This week I’ve got an assortment of links ranging from some bad business news to some venues to send your submissions. That’s the beauty of the publishing industry — never a dull moment. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week and are setting some time aside this weekend to work on your current writing project and maybe to curl up with a good book. I know the latter is certainly on my agenda.

So without further ado, I give you this week’s links. Enjoy!
