Literary Kittie has been searching for just the right website and lo, and behold, here’s one with a name that is very suitable. GALLEYCAT This site is the Word on the book publishing industry. It must be because I just read that somewhere. When I stopped by for a peek today, it had Jennifer Egan’s Pulitzer Prize win in fiction.
It has a story about Jon Krakauer outing Greg Mortenson and his books Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools. Here’s some excerpts from the Byliner website, you can download for free for a couple of days. Make up your own mind about Mortenson.
60 Minutes reports.
Very timely for my colleagues who just saw him speak at Texas Library Association. It makes you wonder why we read memoirs. Maybe we should just think of them as fiction.
GalleyCat has a New book section, which takes up life in Facebook.
They also have Galley Cat Reviews (my favorite part).
The site has lots and lots of book publishing news, which publishing house bought what new book from which “hot” new or successful author. News about booksellers, some depressing like the recent closings of Borders.
And for all the want-to-be writers out there, a blog of Writer Resources, with relevant information, not some stagnant bibliography.
So Literary Kittie says get on over to GalleyCat, support your feline bloggers.
