Since it was the week of Christmas I didn't make it onto Twitter much at all. But I did manage to catch a few great tweets for you. This one is from a literary intern on how many queries she read versus how many she passed on to the agent she reads for (AA stands for awesome agent. How cool is that?!):
@AC_Johnson89 Before I go, for those of you wondering: out of the 140 queries I read yesterday I sent 7 on to AA. 1 of which wasn't even a query.
Writers Digest and Chuck Sambuchino bring to our attention a new agent looking for YA. You don't want to miss this one. I've been Twitter & blogging friends with Vickie for a while and she rocks:
@WritersDigest New agent seeking YA as well as adult fiction: Vickie Motter of Andrea Hurst Associates http://tinyurl.com/3xvhb54
New agent extraordinaire let's us know what she wants to see in a query:
@Vickie_Motter My blog today: I answer the credentials question. What should you include in your query? http://tinyurl.com/265z6r7
Do you write science fiction or fantasy for adults? If so you don't want to miss this. It's an open call for submissions from Angry Robot Books, a sci-fi/fantasy imprint that doesn't normally open it's doors. Brought to us by my friend Em:

Jane Friedman of Writer's Digest gives us a late holiday gift with this link to her post of fantastic links for writers:

With the holidays over I will hopefully be much better about bringing you more links! I have to warn you though, I've been hearing crickets on Twitter lately because most of the publishing world takes the week between Christmas and New Year's off.
