books

an interesting claim...

Reading through a conference brochure with some of the guests bios... including an agent who claims to have launched more first time authors than any other agent in the world. Whether it's true or not (and I admit to feeling dubious about the idea, considering the agency in question was only established five years before I started agenting myself), it somehow strikes me as a peculiar spin to put into a bio.

curious

A few days ago I was feeling vaguely cranky that someone had sent me a full manuscript when I had requested only a partial (at a conference). Someone asked me why this would be considered a problem. Since it's late at night and I've just finished reading slightly over 100 queries and I think it's bed-time or manuscript-time or something, I thought I'd see what reasons others might have to offer in response....
