Twitter Tuesday~Agent & Editor Advice

Twitter was hopping with great advice and tweets for writers this week. I could hardly keep up with it all! Check out what an editor of Kensington books had to say about receiving an offer from a publisher:
@meganrecords Don't be coy if you have an offer. Don't simply inquire about status at other pubs, TELL THEM YOU HAVE AN OFFER. (cont) #pubtip
@meganrecords Will try to get to it quickly if you tell us. Otherwise, you'll wait your turn like everyone else. And don't lie to get faster read. #pubtip

Agent Mandy Hubbard was kind enough to let us know what trends she has been seeing in her inbox:
@MandyHubbard Today's trends: Dystopias, Angels, Dream worlds or living in dreams/meeting boy of your dreams IN a dream. #queries

Chuck Sambuchino from Writer's Digest shares some very encouraging words:
@ChuckSambuchino Wrote a guest column for @RachelleGardner today: You Can Write for Love AND Money http://bit.ly/b1ipSt

This is a different genre from last month's contest so be sure to check it out if you write YA. You could win a critique from an agent who just might like your work enough to consider representing you:

This post is a must read if you have questions about contracts, copyright, or legal issues, which most of us do! I definitely learned a thing or two.

The fabulous new agent Weronika Janczuk sheds light on questions in the literary world with her new blog feature *Ask Weronika*. If you're not following this lady, you should be!
