Thank you so very much for Aunty Acid, Story Reading Ape! We all can use a laugh! It feels good and I’m sharing the smiles!
Erica Verrillo provides us with three agents who are accepting manuscripts at the moment. Thank you, Erica!
Here are three new agents seeking clients. New agents are a boon to writers. They are actively expanding their lists and will go the extra mile for their clients.
Megan Barnard wants adult fiction, thrillers, memoirs, fairy-tale retellings, women’s fiction, family sagas, and historical fiction.
Ashley Herring Blake is acquiring projects in Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult fiction.
Reeves Hamilton is seeking Science fiction – particularly hard Sci-Fi, space opera, climate dystopias, and alternative histories, with some other interest in dark fantasy and classic-style sword and sorcery.
Always check the agency website and agent bio before submitting.
Agents can switch agencies or close their lists, and submission requirements can change.
Lucy Mitchell provides us with a fantastic blog post about the question “How is your book coming along?” and the different answers. Please, go to her original post and publish your comments there! Thank you, Lucy!
I love this question – how’s your book coming along?
My reaction to this simple question can change daily, sometimes hourly.
Here are 10 different writer reactions to that question.
They are a mixture of some of the reactions I have overheard during my time as a writer and my own. I will let you work out which are mine 🤣
1. ‘Great thanks!’ Beaming smile and twinkling eyes. All is well in Writing Land.
2. Awkward silence on the writer’s part. There are no words to describe how that book is coming along.
Nicholas C. Rossis informs us in his latest blog post about the evolution of blogging and what and how it had developed since he joined the great group of bloggers, a long, long time ago! Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us, Nicholas!
I have been online since 1985. I was one of the first members of the BBS (Bulletin Board) scene in Greece back when we connected to a server using landline modems. I still remember my thrill when I finally got my hands on a 9600 bps modem and could download pictures as well as texts.
In 1995, I developed my first website. Even then, I had identified a need for regularly updated content. While some pages were meant to be static, there were news and events to share. Web developers usually met this need by introducing a News page and placing there any related items. As the new millennium approached, we started placing some of these on the home page, too.
Out of these News pages came blogging. Nowadays, 25 years after I developed my first website, most of my living comes through freelance writing for company blogs.
