Tips, News & Other Interesting Info from Around the 'Net

Literary agent Nathan Bransford posted about publishing time on his blog.

Agent Janet Reid addressed query response times in response to Mr. Bransford's blog post and a visit to her profile on the QueryTracker main site.

Guide to Literary Agents had an excellent post on high-concept hooks in children's books.

On the e-book front, I ran across a couple of interesting articles. The first article is about how the e-reader competition is heating up and the other is about Sony launching a reader that has a similar feature to Kindle's whispernet.

Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend.
