My copy of The Author, the Society of Authors magazine, arrived yesterday. And then the phone rang about the Historical Novels Society 2008 UK conference (watch this space) which is all shaping up to be exciting. But surely not enough excitment for one evening. I settled down back with The Author and, a mere two articles in, it occured to me that this magazine really is worth the subscription to the Society of Authors in itself*. Consider the fact you get free membership of the ACLS and free contract advice, oh and all the training and parties, merely as a bonus.
UK Authors – if you are not a member of the Society of Authors, you are missing out.
* And the latest issue of The Author contained some web 2.0 with an article by Kate Williams on her experience as an author on MySpace.
