Twitter Tuesday~Agents, Conferences & Literary Advice

This was another busy week in which I didn't get to spend much time on my favorite social networks but I did glean a few really good links off Twitter for you. Here is a prime example from Agent Natalie Fischer about why aspiring authors should be on Twitter:
@Natalie_Fischer Twitterbugs, keep on twittering: agents are reading! http://bit.ly/725ig  #PUBTIP

It's easy to be impatient while sitting on the writer's side of the computer but check out this tweet about what it's like on the agent's side from agent Weronika Janczuk:
@WeronikaJanczuk Ever wonder why agents need a week to decide whether they want to offer rep? And why offering rep isn't so easy? http://bit.ly/9pWFMw

See a conference from the agent's point of view:

Excellent advice from Chuck Sambuchino of Writer's Digest:

What to do when the magic has gone out of your author/agent relationship:

I know I had to have missed a few good links so feel free to drop a few in the comments! On a side note, congratulations to Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia, it's release day for Beautiful Darkness, the sequel to Beautiful Creatures!

    And I'm SO excited about BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS. I picked my copy up today and I can't WAIT to read it. I read the prologue and I was sucked right back into Gaitlin, SC.

  13. Great links, Heather. I'm off to check them out. :D

    (PS the conference was good, though it was mostly for beginners. I got a good crit on my first 300 words. That's when they got tough--on me.) :D
