I'm blessed to have Wendy Lawton as my literary agent. She's a standout in the industry (Agent of the Year, 2007) - and is connected with one of the most respected agencies in the CBA (Books & Such Literary Agency).
For a long time the advice and counsel offered by the agents of Books & Such was a 'behind closed doors' affair. But all that has changed with the introduction of their new blog Between the Lines
Its more than a blog - it's a diamond mine for everyone who is connected to publishing. Take for example Wendy's blog about advances. Rich information that makes sense out of a topic every writer wants to know about - and hopes to understand.
If you are a writer, or interested in writing, I strongly recommend you subcribe to this blog - which will ensure you don't miss a post. It is simply the best informational blog about books you'll find online.
I bid you good writing.
