I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned that I’m part of the SFNovelists community which was started by Tobias Buckell. Mostly because this hasn’t seemed like a big deal, but I have to say it’s a great group of very thoughtful people who are all currently-working novelists in the SF&F field. The blog is worth checking out and there are some really cool folks involved. I’m a terrible blogger so I don’t blog–about 2/3 of the members don’t–but there’s a lot of other cool stuff going on behind the scenes and the group is very helpful about sharing information and professional advice, supporting each other’s books, and generally behaving the way one always hopes a professional artistic community will. There are also good things on the blog all the time, like nifty interviews with members, book release info, and other useful things. I love my SFNovelists. Go visit: they’re good folks.
