Link Roundup, Y’all

Lots of good advice for writers floating about the internet:

Sally Apokedak: Don’t Cheat The Reader (by leaving out emotional scenes)

Terence Blacker: How to know you’re really an author

Dean Wesley Smith: Devaluing your work by pricing it too low

Mary Robinette Kowal: How to be a professional when you really want to fangirl upon meeting someone you admire

Steve Weddle: The only loyalty required between publisher and writer is that laid out in a contract

If you only read one of these, I highly recommend Link #3, the Dean Wesley Smith piece on devaluing your work by pricing it too low. This should be required reading for anyone considering self-publishing anything, even those love letters to your pet alligator or collection of naughty haiku.
