To blurb or not to blurb
I got a lovely shout-out on Nathan Bransford’s blog for my presentation at Saturday’s Agent’s Day, and I wanted to follow up some of his comments about using blurbs in your query letter. Nathan describes four possible tiers of blurbs, with an actual personal referral from a client as Tier 1 down to praise from random children as Tier 4. He was very polite, however, in not sharing one of my biggest reasons for not caring too much for blurbs in your queries — sometimes, they make me feel dumb.
My devoted readers may have noted with dismay my lack of a post on Friday. Sorry about that! To make it up to you, please enjoy this special Sunday night, post-Oscars blog post!

I'm going to work on my blog, take a gander at my query (version 875.2), take care of my friend's house and drink lots of coffee and maybe make some Barbie clothes and procrastinate on my Christmas thank yous. Maybe I'll find time to read more of 'Water Cooler Diaries'. (An excellent read.)
I forgot to say Happy New Year everyone! I hope it's a great year for everyone.
