On Thursday the New York Times had an article by Clea Simon entitled "With Friends Like These, Who Needs Book Agents": check it out if you'd like.
A Writer's lot can be a lonely one, since churning out pages usually means hours spent alone at a keyboard. It seems natural, then, that many contemporary authors are turning to the Internet for companioship and support and even taking over a Web site that was not originally intended as a writers' forum.
The site's owner was a former host of the discussion area of Salon.com. She started Readerville in June 2000.
Perhaps it will be helpful to some here.
