1, 2, 3 Great Links

I'm amazed by the amount of information available online for authors and aspiring authors. This fact really hit home for me this week, so I'd like to share three of my favorite writing-related blog posts from the past few days:

1. Kristin Nelson at Pub Rants (my agency) shares concrete reasons why prologues don't usually work

2. Megan Rebekah posts very detailed and helpful insider info from the recent SCBWI conference she attended in New York

3. Jessica Faust of BookEnds, LLC reveals why the real mark of a professional writer can be found in her ability to revise

P.S. I've got jury duty at (gasp) 7:30 a.m. tomorrow, so if you don't hear from me for a week, that means I got a juicy case. Or a prolonged traffic violation.


  1. Wow, I feel blessed to be sandwiched between two great agents :)

    And I'm totally jealous that you get to go to jury duty. I've always wanted to go, but have never been summoned, and I'm sure when I do finally get my summons it will be at the worst possible time. Hopefully you get a fun case that gives you lots of ideas for a new book!

  2. Awesome blogs all three.

    I hope you enjoy jury duty! I had to do it a couple years ago, but my case was lame. But quick. :)

  3. I love new blogs!!! That is how I found yours!! Awesome blogs that you chose too!!!

    Yikes... jury duty... all I can say at this point!

  4. Thanks for the comments, Megan and Natalie :)

    Nice to meet you, Jen!

    Turns out I've been selected for a jury so I'll be back when it's over!
