Publishing Pulse 10/15/10


Agent Judged Contest on the QueryTracker Blog!

Our next contest will be on October 27th and will be for writers of children's projects only, including middle grade and young adult fiction as well as work for younger readers down to picture books. Agent Joan Paquette from the Erin Murphy Literary Agency has agreed to be our next judge. This is a great opportunity to get your work in front of Ms. Paquette because she does not accept queries outside of referrals or personal contact (conferences). Details on the contest can be found 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.

QueryTracker Member Receives 8 Offers of Representation!

Congrats to Michael Winchell who recently signed with Brenda Bowen of Sanford J. Greenburger and Associates. You can read his success story here and read about his road to publication on his personal blog.

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

I found the following articles interesting and relevant for QueryTracker members:


Since NaNoWriMo is right around the corner, I found Margaret Brownley's article, Questions to Ask When Starting a Novel, to be timely over on the Novel Journey Blog.

Adventures In Children's Publishing focused on opening sentences.

Chuck over at Guide to Literary Agents Blog posted another installment of Successful Queries featuring Literary Agent Jim McCarthy.
