I feel like I’ve been reading queries and partials and fulls for days. Which I have. And will continue to do throughout the weekend in a bid to get all caught up by next week. But let’s just say it’s left me a little bit fried on everything else, shall we? (For instance, it took me three tries to spell “fried”.) All the cool nerds have been hanging out at Comic Con this week, and I’m feeling a bit jealous. I’ve been following Felicia Day on Twitter and reading all the updates from Entertainment Weekly about the Con, and I’m excited about a bunch of stuff coming up — I’ve already pre-ordered my DVD of Dollhouse and have marked my calendar for a couple of upcoming films. What about you? What aspects of nerd-vana have you excited this weekend?
I meant to share this last week, but here’s the next in Poets & Writers’ series on the people in publishing. This article is a Q&A with four young editors — again, I’d take umbrage at the term “young editors” — they are the heads of their imprints or divisions, with many years of experience below their belts. Still, they provide some interesting insight into publishing.
