Because Joe Cocker doesn't have the shout out rate he deserves. Not in this decade, anyway.
I'm sure most of my excellent followers know that I serve as a moderator over at AgentQueryConnect. For those of you who aren't members, lurkers, or even aware of what I'm talking about, I definitely advise you to get your e-ass over there. AQ is solely responsible for my growth in the craft, success as a querier, and sense of self-worth as a writer. The community there is exactly that - a web of unparalleled support.
I used to mock the idea of having "friends" that you met online. Now I don't.
A group of like - minded friends and I have started a new blog - From the Write Angle - which offers multiple perspectives on all aspects of the craft, as well as industry coverage. We've got everything from an MG author to a corset maker, screenwriting to non-fiction, math teachers and lawyers whose combined brain power can fuel generators, and me, periodically making an ass of myself.
I just used the word "ass" twice in one post. Apologies to the censor.
