Thanks for all the great links and agent info, Suzette. And congrats Carolyn on your cover.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for sharing Suzette!

In "On the Net" can you really get critiqued by Collen Lindsay twice? That would be awesome. As is her post about what not to do - or I guess that would be un-awesome, or whatever.

Congrats to Sarah, Amanda and Karen.

Today's guest blogger is Rachel Alpine!

I tried literary agents, and that did not work for me as a first time novelist, so I self published my new novel http://newnovelannouncement.blogspot.com/ I'm hoping I sell enough of my novel to get an agent the second time around for the sequel

Thanks, Stina! And LOL, Matthew. Thanks for catching my typo. ;) It would be nice to be twice critiqued by Colleen Lindsay, though, wouldn't it?

Elana Johnson said...

I tried to see comments about what Colleen Lindsay posted and I don't see the ability to comment. Anyone else notice? Am I missing it? What a screwy email!

Silke said...

Now there's a book I'm going to add to my collection!
Thanks for the headsup!
