Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from us here at Literary Rambles. We hope you rang in the day safely and with optimism. Personally, I think 2012 is going to be a year of happenings. Maybe that means finishing the book you spent 2011 writing and revising, finally getting an agent or book deal, seeing your book hits shelves, or something unrelated to writing all together.

Whatever event you're moving toward, may this be your year!

Don't forget to come by for Natalie's interview with Marie Lu and giveaway of LEGEND on Jan 9th, followed by an interview with Caroline Rose and giveaway of MAY B on Jan 16th, and our 2000 Followers Thank You Giveaway January 18th.

Want to discuss dreams and resolutions? What's your hope for 2012?

  1. I want an agent for my adult novel and an agent for my picture book. I am going to be spending a lot of time on your site. I want all of us to have book contracts for our dream books. Happy 2012

  4. Happy New year, and thanks for this blog. I've added it as one of my go-tos in my agent searches, along with Preditors & Editors and the Absolute Write Water Cooler's Bewares, Recommendations & Background Checks. It's great that you've taken the time to put all this information together in one place. I'll say it's certainly made my life a whole lot simpler. :)


    As for 2012, I'm obviously hoping this will be the year I finally find the right agent for my YA novel. Especially if it's one that will handle my non-YA books, too. Don't have any of those finished, yet. But it would be nice to not have to go through this whole search process again when they're ready.

  8. Happy New Year from Scotland! This is an exciting year for me with my first tween novel, Summer of the Eagles, coming out in March. But I still have lots of other writing to finish and submit during 2012.

  9. Happy New Year! Now that my first novel Two Halves is out I'm very excited for 2012 and the things to come. I plan to release 4 more titles and hopefully be able to write full time by the end of the year!

  10. Happy New Year to you both! And thanks for your wonderful blog. I plan to start querying in a few months and your blog is a gold mine of info about agents. I've already started working my way through your spotlighted agents list and reading about them.
