Publishing Pulse: 2/04/2011

Looking for an agent

Apparently, it’s querying season since all the links I found seemed to be oddly skewed in that direction.
Before you start querying, make sure you work on your synopsis. Agent Jessica Faust explains why.
Jessica also discusses what to do if an agent suggests revisions to your manuscript without offering to represent you first. This is quite common.
Agent Jill Corcoran explains the ins and outs of submitting queries and manuscripts in the digital age.
Some editors at publishing houses are still open to unagented submissions. Agent Kristin Nelson explains why you might want to avoid the temptation. 
If you have a feeling THE CALL is coming soon, you’ll want to check out this post by Rachelle Gardner (agent) on agency agreements.
In addition to this being querying season, it’s also conference season. So here are some tips on networking for the next conference you plan to attend.

Around the Internet

If you’re querying or about to start, and you include book reviews on your blog, you will want to read why being published changes everything. You’ll also want to read it if you’re already (or about to be) a published author.

New Agents

Lea Beresford of Denise Shannon Literary Agency is looking for literary fiction and a non fiction.
Jessie Cammack of JABberwocky Literary Agency is looking for fiction in the following genres: fantasy, literary, science fiction, and young adult.
There have been a number of updates this week to existing agents on the QT database. So please double check the agent’s info before sending out your query.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Stina Lindenblatt writes romantic suspense and young adults novels. In her spare time, she’s a photographer and blogging addict, and can be found hanging out on her blog, Seeing Creative.
