I caught a lot of great advice on Twitter last week that I've been dying to share with you! This first one is an even that occurred yesterday and I hope those of you looking for an agent had a chance to attend! It is the first WriteOnCon event of the year!

Agent Ginger Clark let's us know about following up after submission:
@Ginger_Clark Authors: just had an author email me to confirm I have her MS--and I never got it via email. It is OK to follow up some weeks after subbing.
Agent Vickie Motter gives us a bit of advice on what she doesn't want to see in a query:
@Vickie_Motter #queries If one more person makes a joke about how their vampires don't sparkle, I might throw my laptop.
Agent Jennifer Laughran reminds us that we're under the public eye when submitting:

For anyone who had the chance to participate in the WriteOnCon chat I mentioned in the first tweet I'd love to hear about how it went! Unfortunately, I had to work. :( But knowing the wonderful ladies behind WriteOnCon (such as Elana!) I know there will be many more chances to catch some fantastic events this year!
