I found two great places to play:
1. Literature Map. You type in the name of an author, and the site shows you other authors whose work somehow connects. This is what happens if you type in me. Play with this and let me know if you come up with anything funny or weird. Also – can anyone figure out how this works?
2. Shelf Life, a reading blog written by Laura Ryan of the Syracuse Post Standard. This is my new favorite place to go for news about authors and books.
I am writing today. Life is good.
