Great Reads on Writing, Publishing and the New Media Landscape – (tweets)

I spend a lot of time on Twitter and this is my way of trying to capture what some of the best things I’ve tweeted recently.

In this round of top tweets, I have a bunch of links on the changing media landscape – from how book publishing hasn’t really changed for most authors, to great advice for people who want to build a widely-read blog by someone who’s done it. Enjoy!
