Twitter Tuesday~Editor & Agent Advice

It was another great week on Twitter for writers. I even had the opportunity to jump in on a few great, spontaneous chats with agents and editors. Here are some of the best links I found last week:

This is an excellent post by agent Nathan Bransford on banned books week. I'm very lucky that @jsubject re-tweeted it because I missed it!

I found another fabulous editor to follow. You can learn a lot by doing that, case in point:

If you are on Twitter you really should be following Chuck from Writer's Digest. Here is an example of why:

Here is an encouraging tip from one of the best agencies in the business:
@KnightAgency TKA Tip:Not every project is going to be the right fit. Don’t let a rejection stop you from fulfilling your quest for representation.

Tired of querying and getting nowhere? Then you must read this:

Agent Nathan Bransford does an excellent post every week about the news in publishing.

This is a really interesting post about what happens after you sell your book.
