New Agents Added to the QueryTracker Database
Tips, News & Other Interesting Info from Around the 'Net
Literary agent Nathan Bransford had a fantastic article for both published and unpublished authors about When Dreams Become Expectations. I see examples of this all the time and completely agree with this hard bit of advice. There's nothing wrong with dreaming, but reality checks are equally important in this business in order to be happy, regardless of success level.
UK literary agent Andrew Lownie made me laugh with this fun post on how not to open a submission called, Addressing Me.
The Chronicle of Higher Education posted an article recently that I think translates to fiction as well as academic writing called 10 Tips on How to Write Less Badly.
For those out there pushing or getting ready to push a product, I recommend taking a good look at Unslimy Marketing over at The Three Micahs.
