Querying
Now that September is upon us, many of the agents who closed their office to queries during the summer are now accepting them again. But please double check before sending yours. Not all have opened their doors yet.
Agent Natalie Fischer explained the role of an agent. For the sake of your writing career, please keep this in mind when determining which agents to target.
Here are some simple steps to help you pitch anything to anyone

Around the Internet
Social media has become vital if you want to be a successful author. But it’s also great for helping you become a better writer.
Agent Rachelle Gardner blogged about how much to share online.
Author Nathan Bransford talked about the internet and your brand

Miscellaneous
Agent Mary Kole discussed overwriting and the two signs to watch out for.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Awesome links as always, Stina. I feel like half the stuff I find around the YA web comes from your posts. ;-)
