Is it Friday already?

Not much work done on my novel last night/this morning – too much to do in the real world . . . But, hey it's Friday and that means Fridayitis, which has definitely set in for me, after the excitement about my first comment - I'll shut up about it now.

Bookseller has news regarding Borders UK and their new stock system. The new systems should increase title availability by allowing stores to replenish stock the next day rather than the several day lead, which is currently required.

It also means core stock availability of around 30,000 titles, which will lower the amount of returns to publishers

Mid-list authors will have to wait and see how this affects their sales. Why is this important? Take a look here.

You can read the Bookseller news item here in full.

Jessica, over at Bookends LLC has posted An Interesting Thought on "Rules" or rather the lack of them, and Nathan Bransford has an excellent post on the importance of plot.

That's it for this week!

Have a great weekend.
