The New QueryTracker Newsletter

QT started a new monthly email newsletter and the first issue came out August 1st. The newsletter contains agent information, articles of interest to authors seeking representation, and highlights ways to use QT in your agent search. If you haven't subscribed already, it's free at http://QueryTracker.net/index.php.

Recent QueryTracker Success Stories

Congratulations to our members who signed with agents this week. All the QT success stories can be checked out here.

New Agents Added to the QueryTracker Database

Several new agents and publishers have been added to or updated on the QT Database recently. Check out the box labeled "New and Updated Listings" on the front page of the main QueryTracker.Net site and view their profiles for website links and genres they represent.

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

WriteOnCon, an online conference for kidlit authors, wrapped up this week. Amazing information can be found in the live chat archives on the WriteOnCon website. You'll find discussions with agents and authors on everything from craft to how to handle a book signing.

Literary agent Nathan Bransford had a great article on writing maladies. My favorite is the "Old Spice Guy Effect (excessive rug pulling)".

I enjoyed Eric's brief, to-the-point post on dialogue tags over at Pimp My Novel.

Jessica Faust at BookEnds Literary addressed Individualizing the Query.

And just for grins, check out SlushPile Hell.

Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend.
