The Publishing Pulse: Jan 31, 2014

Success Story

Congrats goes out to Sarah Ahiers for signing with an agent this week. 

Around the Internet

Agent Janet Reid talked about querying your self-published novel. She also had a brilliant post on book promotion via Twitter.

Nathan Bransford shared some tips on choosing an ebook cover.

Since last year, when it was discover that a self-published author had stolen paragraphs from the works of authors Tammara Webber and Jamie McGuire, it’s become a growing concern that some “authors” have been stealing the words of other authors and passing it off as their own. Agent Rachelle Gardner discussed what to do if you’re worried about this happening to you. She also discusses piracy.

Writer’s Digest had a post on the five differences between professional and amateur novelists.

Have a great weekend!

Stina Lindenblatt @StinaLL writes Young Adult and New Adult novels. In her spare time, she’s a photographer and can be found at her blog/website. She is represented by Marisa Corvisiero, and finds it weird talking about herself in third person. Her debut New Adult contemporary romance TELL ME WHEN (Carina Press, HQN) is now available.
