Congratulations to Molly Zenk. You can read her success story here.

If any of you Tweet, social networking just got a little more permanent as the Library of Congress is building a Twitter archive.

Author Jody Hedlund lists 10 ways to avoid having mid-book doldrums.

Our own Stina Lindenblatt has an excellent article on what to watch out for when you query. This isn't about watching out for scams, but making sure you don't sign with the wrong agent.

Nathan Bransford takes a very unscientific poll on attitudes toward e-book pricing. It was interesting to see the change that one year had on people's opinions.

Agent Jessica Faust gives some good tips on email etiquette. And agent Jennifer Laughran gives us information on how she handles the slush pile triage.

Have a great week!
