Every now and then I like to do a post that's a mix of news and other interesting items I want to share. Today is one of those days! Are you ready?
*Stephanie Thornton signed with agent Marlene Stringer of the Stringer Literary Agency. Congratulations, Stephanie!! You can read her happy news here!
*Publishers Weekly had an article about Barnes & Noble's recent announcement: B&N won't be stocking Amazon-published titles. Another PW article by Marc Schultz soon followed, saying, "This has all happened before."
*The Intern posted an eye-opening e-mail from an editorial assistant, cautioning unagented writers. It echoes a super informative post by Editorial Ass that I linked to a while back.
*Susan Fields pointed out a new site that's worth visiting. It's called Cupid's Literary Connection, and it's a blog "where an undercover cupid brings writers and agents together to form magical literary connections."
*The Intern had another post you won't want to miss, Dinner with Literary Agents. It's excellent, really.
*Looking for a blog that's filled with warmth, positivity, and creativity? Faith Pray's blog is one of the coziest corners of the Internet! Faith is a writer, an artist, and an amazing parent. I was lucky to get to meet her in person last year! She's a sweetheart! If you have not yet discovered her blog, go check it out!
How about you? Do you have anything you'd like to share? Tell me, tell me, tell me!
