Great book blogs to visit

This week I'm saving my planned post for another time, in order to re-direct you to a couple of other book blogs well worth a visit.

A good place to start is the excellent Notes from the Slushpilefor the first instalment of their That'll be the Debut feature – an interview by Candy Gourlay with Edge authors Bryony Pearce, Katie Dale and I. The piece took the form of a conversation between the four of us, about our experiences of being debut authors. It was great fun to be involved and makes for an interesting read.

On The Edge blog itself, Katie Dale asks why so few teen books from other countries make it onto UK bookshelves and considers cultural reference points that are somehow Lost in Translation.

As part of Fluttering Butterflies Awesome Women series, Keren David talks about the women who inspired her life and her writing.

And yet another Edge author, Paula Rawsthorne is this week's debut author on the brilliant Tall Tales & Short Stories blog.

Then there are the fascinating Writing Room Revelations running on Nicky Schmidt's Absolute Vanilla, featuring Meg Rosoff, Nicola Morgan, Keren David, Jon Mayhew and Miriam Halahmy to name just a few.

Finally, it's always worth stopping off to see what Nick Cross has to say at Who Ate My Brain. This week Nick poses the question of re-readability.

Thanks and happy browsing …
