Writer Beware Blog on (Brief) Temporary Hiatus

Posted by Victoria Strauss for Writer Beware

I've got a book deadline coming up: July 31. This is a happy thing, in that my book has a home and my editor is waiting for it and in a month I'll be done! It's also a scary thing, because I work least well when I'm under pressure.

I'm putting the blog on hiatus for the next few weeks, in order to concentrate on the final push. If something really earth-shaking occurs, such as Amazon buying Random Penguin, I'll post about it, but other than that, you won't hear from me again until sometime in August.

I will still be answering email and continuing other Writer Beware activities, so please feel free to contact me: beware [at]

In the meantime, have a great summer, and thank you so much for your ongoing support.
