Attention Authorial Debutantes

For all you first-time authors out there, I just came upon a very cool find. The Debutante Ball is a group blog for debut authors (looks like almost exclusively women). They offer "takes on weekly bookish and not-so-bookish topics" and invite readers to "watch our collective sanity crumble as our debuts approach." Man, I know the feeling.

Thought I'd share some links from their blogroll, as they list a number of other group blogs about books that GWP readers may find of interest:
And speaking of group blogs, I just heard a new term to describe them: "grog." I don't think I like. Sounds too much like "frog", or a drink you swig at an Irish bar, no? I think I'll stick with "group blog" when referring to the future incarnation of GWP. Unless anyone else has a suggestion? I'm open!

Thanks for the links.

I don't like "grog" either. How about "bloop"? Hmm. This group blog thing doesn't lend to blending well, does it?

Thanks for all the good links! Deb Ball is a great site; I was happy to be a guest blogger there recently:http://foodthought.org/2008/07/mama-phd-on-debutante-ball.html
