I hope 2012 is treating you well. Personally, I'm feeling a little gobsmacked by its quick arrival but nonetheless eager to see what will come. There was a real optimistic energy in the comments of my New Year's post. Many of you are looking to gain representation this year, or to see your book published, and I'm thrilled (continually) that we have this community that allows us to journey together. I'll be keeping my eye on each of you for those milestones.
What I'd really like to discuss, however, is Tip Tuesday. It's been some weeks since I received new tips (not unexpected given the holidays) and am curious as to whether you'd like to see it continue. I'm happy to feature tips as long as I receive them, but I fear the series might sputter out this year. If it does (and even if it doesn't), I might be interested in starting a new series of some sort. Any ideas or suggestions? I've pulled back on blogging quite a bit, but I definitely want to keep a presence here at least once or twice a week. So let me know your thoughts!
In the meantime, if you have a writing or research tip you'd like to send in, please do e-mail me at agentspotlight(at)gmail(dot)com. And if you missed Natalie's interview with Marie Lu from yesterday, click here. It's fantastic and Natalie is giving away her copy of LEGEND, a book we both really enjoyed and recommend.
