Aside from a few queries Renee and I are looking at more closely, we’ve answered all queries sent prior to March 10th. While I’m traveling to New York and Bologna, Renee will keep up the hard work of reading queries. If you sent a query prior to March 10th, and you don’t hear from us today (Monday the 18th), you can resend your query to the usual firstname.lastname@example.org address, and copy Renee at email@example.com. Thanks!
So I came across the following article in my Google Reader, from the Editors of the Children’s Book Insider (where a special Ask Daphne! column appears quarterly!). Anyway, the article asks “Do You Need a Literary Agent?” And it raises a number of good points, as well as making a few statements I disagree with, so I thought I’d go over a few of those.
