The Publishing Pulse: November 4th, 2011

Success Stories:

Joyce Tremel
Congratulations to Amy Sue Nathan for the recent sale her novel. Amy entered a QT contest last year, which lead to her landing her agent Jason Yarn.
Here is the excerpt from Publishers Marketplace:

Amy Sue Nathan's THE GLASS WIVES, a portrait of the effects of divorce and death on the modern family unit where a woman is compelled to live with her ex-husband's widow (who originally broke up their marriage) and her baby in order to save the home she loves, all while dealing with the scandal which erupts in their suburban paradise, to Brenda Copeland at St. Martin's, by Jason Yarn at Paradigm.
Around the Internet
Jane Friedman pointed out that self-published authors have great power, but are they taking responsibility for it?
Harper Collins is set to buy Christian Publish Thomas Nelson.
Agent Natalie Lakosil provided tips to help you market your novel. Remember, don’t wait until the last second and think spamming will win you sales. It won’t.
Agent Janet Reid presented a big query no-no. She also answered the age old question: do fiction writers need a platform?

Have a great weekend everyone!
