Now that I’m returning to the link soup model (see my previous post about writer links for the whole sordid confession) I might as well go ahead and pump out some links to literary agent stuff I have found interesting recently.
In keeping with the new style — and until you tell me it makes you bat-crazy — these links will use the bullet method to avoid that ugly dotted underline hyperlink marker.
And here are the links!
Janet Reid asks ♦ whether you really want her to smack you around about your query letter subject line, and spells out ♦ the 7 wonderful things about her job. (None of which are smacking writers around for their subject lines.)
Jessica at BookEnds responds to ♦ a question about how to get your book to reviewers, ♦ the perennial accusation from writers that agents only want books that make money, ♦ having a client’s novel dedicated to her, and ♦ a question about when silence = rejection.
At Dystel & Goderich, ♦ Jane explains the importance of timing, ♦ Jim announces a first-line contest, ♦ Chasya discusses the subjectivity of censorship, while ♦ Miriam has a little fun imagining the Tweets of famous authors.
And finally, ♦ Nathan Bransford discusses the science of buzz: what makes something popular, even viral?
