Publishing Pulse: 12/03/2010

Around the Internet

Agent Rachelle Gardner discusses royalty rates, and while all the figures are hypothetical, they give a good idea of what to expect.

Writing a novel? Nathan Bransford takes a leaf out of Dante's book and describes The Nine Circles of Writing Hell.

And agent Mary Kole gives her insights on what makes a novel fall into the Young Adult or Middle Grade category. 


And we're excited to announce that fellow QT blogger Jane Lebak's book THE BOYS UPSTAIRS is coming out with MuseItUp Publishing.

In The Boys Upstairs, Father Jay Farrell is a priest who's begun housing homeless kids in the unused rectory. When his estranged brother, a cop, brings him three more kids a few nights before Christmas, their struggle to provide for these children brings them to confront the long-buried emotions that have them apart.

To celebrate, QT readers can get 25% off theirs from today until December 10th.
