Browsing some of the industry blogs I enjoy yesterday turned up some gems. One is this fabulous post by agent/author Mandy Hubbard of D4EO Lit. Mandy covers a list of myths about getting published when you're a "nobody". According to her twitter poll, 90% of authors who answered found their agent with a cold query, no publishing creds and no connections.
Another was from agent Rachelle Gardner, on when and why an agent might call it quits on a project. From being out of options, to market concern, to just being plain wrong about the saleability of the project. It's definitely a post worth reading, whether you're agented or still looking.
Also, if you missed it yesterday, I was interviewed by Simon Hay--soul healer, medium, writer--at his blog! Come by and say hi, or just to giggle at my glamour shot from the mid 90's.
