Twitter Tuesday~Agent Advice, Networking, & Supporting

The list of tweets for writers that I scrounged up this week is a bit thin since I've been spending most of my time writing, but I did manage to find a few really good ones. This first one is from me but it is about an excellent post that Chuck Sambuchino wrote. If you're a writer you need to read this before you do your holiday shopping:
@HeatherMcCorkle The Publishing Industry Needs Our Support: http://tinyurl.com/24spacc A great post via @ChuckSambuchino of @WritersDigest #writing

Literary agent Jennifer Laughran of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency let's us in on a little secret about when to submit:
@literaticat Do you want to know the secret, sure-fire time to submit so your query will definitely get noticed? http://tinyurl.com/32gv4s9

Are you curious about why Super agent Nathan Bransford left the publishing industry? Then you need to read this interview:

Author Myra McEntire gives us an excellent link from her literary agency on social networking for writers:
@MyraMcEntire Some genius from my lit agency, @jasonpinter at Waxman: "The 10 Commandments of Social Networking For Writers" http://ow.ly/3dHOI

Writer Julie Musil brought this link to my attention. It is an interview Chuck Sambuchino did with agent Michelle Brower on attending writer's conferences:

Julie brings us another fantastic link from Jane Friedman on query red flags to avoid:

If you are a friend or family member of a writer then you really need to read this post by author Elizabeth Craig. Writers, we should read it too and pass it on:
