On the fun side, today is the (unofficial, official) Agent Appreciation Day. QT members Lisa and Laura have compiled a list of participating agented authors and the agents who represent them.

Literary Agent Jenny Rappaport announced that she is closing her agency.

Agent Holly Root contributed an informative article on negotiating publishing contracts over at Romance University.

Chuck over at Guide to Literary Agents posted an article about writing a synopsis that might come in handy if you are at that stage of the process.

Nathan Bransford addressed the topic of pen names this week.

One of my favorite agents, Joanna Stampfel-Volpe, was interviewed on A View From The Top.

If you write YA, you should add Cynthia Leitich Smith's blog, Cynsations, to your must-read list. It has fabulous articles and interview as well as helpful links to resources for writers. Check it out.

Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend.
