I am considering combining the weekly lit agent round-up with the “miscellaneous” publishing pros.
Between the blogs that inexplicably dry up — or consist mainly of their own link lists, Happy Release Day posts, or “everyone can be a writer, don’t give up!” cheerleading — the lit agent offerings have been growing thin. Maybe it’s because of this god-awful heat! What’s the summer version of hibernation?
On to the lit agent links!
♦ At BookEnds, Jessica shares her thoughts on e-books.
♦ The Rejectionist is very ticked off (warning: profanity in ALL CAPS) about book covers that obscure or change the characters’ race.
And, the AGENT LINK OF THE WEEK award goes to Miriam at Dystel & Goderich for saying what so few publishing industry professionals (writers, agents, editors, publishers, etc.) seem willing to say: some people are just bad at writing and should not be trying to get published.
