In other news:
Tyler was kind enough to give me the fabulous idea of spotlighting the agents that will be doing breakout sessions at the SCBWI Summer Conference in LA this August. So look forward to spotlights on Daniel Lazar (Writer's House), Steven Malk (Writer's House), Jen Rofe (Andrea Brown), Marietta Zacker (Nancy Gallt Lit), Sarah Davies (Greenhouse Lit), Jamie Weiss (Andrea Brown), Kelly Sonnack (Andrea Brown), and Stephen Fraser (Jennifer De Chiara Lit) in the upcoming weeks (not necessarily in that order).
Sherry Dale Rogers over at her blog, Excuse me, does this blog make my butt look big? (or Splatt Way of Life), is holding a contest. It's a simple contest that won't tax your brain (well, it might if you've been writing or revising for a few hours) and you can win a $50 Amazon gift card. Woot!
I'd also like to point your attention to Rhonda Stapleton's blog, Just Your Average Crazy Writer. She put up Chapter One of her upcoming debut novel Stupid Cupid. Yay! Rhonda is also having a contest for a $10 bookstore gift card. All you have to do is tell her romantic or not-so-romantic stories. Isn't that fun?
ETA: Rhonda has also been doing a fabulous blog tour of 2009 debut authors on her blog - make sure to check out those posts, too!
QueryTracker still has its 2nd Anniversary Celebration going on.
Check out the The Worst Review Ever blog to remind yourself how subjective this business can be. You might even gain some perspective on your own (or future) reviews.
Catch up on all the fabulous posts that have been going up on Agent Rachelle Gardner's blog (each word is a seperate link, BTW).
And so much more that I'm probably forgetting.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
