YES, POPPIES. BECAUSE THEY'RE PRETTY, AND RED.
Here are some super smart writing experts whom I stalk on a regular basis. They can help you get ready.
SUPER AWESOME LITERARY AGENTS
Kristin Nelson seems like a very nice literary agent, and she shares her deets in her Pub Rants blog -
Jennifer Laughran doles out writing and publishing advice to we newbies with a side of straight-up reality (and humor).
The always super sharky literary agent Janet Reid shares great advice on how to write query letters.
Mary Kole writes about all things Young Adult and more. Her blog is a must read.
. . . there are so many more, coming soon.
WRITERS WHO ARE ALREADY THERE (or at least, really, really close).
The lovely romance author, Roni Loren, with terrific advice blog for writers.
Julie Anne Lindsay, who shares her comical Musings From the Slush Pile.
Writer Aimee Salter, fantasy writer and fellow coffee aficionado shares her writing tips in her blog.
Authoress Anon, as Miss Snark's First Victim, doles writerly advice and her "Secret Agent Postings" for terrific peer feedback.
Michele Shaw adds humor to her documented quest for the publishing grail, and for the perfect piece of candy.
