Wanna Hear What Agents (And A Few Editors) Have To Say?

February is Agent Month over at Magical Musings. Megan McKeever, Assistant Editor from Pocket Books, and Keyren Gerlach from Harlequin Books blogged a few weeks back. Click on their names to read their post. Here's the Magical Musings Agent schedule for February: 9 February: Kevan Lyon of the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency 14 Febraury: Tamar Rydzinski of the Laura Dail Literary Agency 16 Febraury: Jennifer Jackson of the Donald Maass Literary Agency 18 February: Pam Strickler of Pam Strickler Author Management 21 February: Jennifer Schober of Spencerhill Literary Agency 23 February: Laura Bradford of Bradford Literary Agency 27 Febraury: Holly Root of Waxman Literary Agency Very Impressive, MM! Over at Plot Monkeys, Waxman Literary Agent Holly Root tells you how to make your query stand out in the slush pile. Nathan Bransford, of Curtis Brown, LTD, announces the finalists for his First Page Contest. Jessica Faust of Bookends does Pitch Critique 23 on the Bookends blog (she still hasn't got to mine). :) Alicia and Theresa are talking about dialogue tags over at edittorrent. Reading Agent and Editor (and Author) blogs are a good way to learn and keep up on what's going on in the industry. Here are some of my favorites. The Knight Agency Bookends Lit Agent X Guide to Literary Agents The Rejecter Agent in the Middle Writer Beware! Dystel & Goderich Literary Management Et in arcaedia, ego Janet Reid, Literary Agent Lit Soup Lyons Literary Miss Snark (although Miss Snark no longer blogs, you can still look through the archives) Anyone have any others to add?

Hey Carol! Thanks for the Magical Musings mention. We love when editor/agent time rolls around.

Carol, thanks for mentioning Magical. One of my favorite agent blogs is Kristin Nelson's Pub Rants.

Thanks for the MM plug, we're really excited about this upcoming month. Reading agent and editor blogs is one of my favorite pasttimes too. In fact I enjoy browing through them so much I have to limit myself to just a few a day, otherwise I won't have any time for the writing. lol

You're welcome, Theresa! And thanks for visiting.

Believe me, I know what you mean about limiting your daily blogs. I had to cut back, as I was spending ALL my time just reading blogs! LOL Very addicting. :)
