Twitter Tuesday~Agent Search

First I have to welcome all my new followers. I'm blown away by the success of Carol's blog party and am touched by how many people are joining in. You peeps rock! I hope to keep my new followers well entertained and informed. Back to regularly scheduled programming :) It was a good week on Twitter for anyone who is looking for an agent! Don't worry if you missed it though, I've got you covered. This first one is a great workshop mentioned by agent Vickie Motter:
@Vickie_Motter Announcing a Monthly First Five Pages Workshop http://bit.ly/eJucfd

One of my new favorite bloggers tweeted this link to help YA Fantasy writers find the right agents:
@YAFantasyGuide Are you a YA Fantasy Writer? Do you know which Agencies will consider your Novel? Here's a Good Place to Start: http://tinyurl.com/22u9rfm

If you haven't heard the news about the new agent joining D4EO literary yet, check this out:
@WritersDigest New literary agent seeking young adult and middle grade books: Kristin Miller of D4EO: http://tinyurl.com/46br4ma  #writing #scbwi

The fabulous Shannon Messenger reminds us to mark our calendars for WriteOnCon 2011:
@SW_Messenger Did you see? @WriteOnCon announced the dates for our 2011 conference. MARK YOUR CALENDARS! http://bit.ly/hmP3CR

You don't want to miss this important link tweeted by agent Vickie Motter on book bloggers:
@Vickie_Motter This is why book bloggers are AMAZING. And why you should pay attention to them: http://www.urltwit.com//677

I hope you got in on this contest, it ended yesterday but I thought I'd include the link anyway:
@Vickie_Motter On @KristineAsselin 's blog: a contest! One of the prizes: me! Other prizes: first page critiques! http://krisasselin.blogspot.com/

Agent Natalie Fischer retweeted this advice from Nathan Bransford who gives us a few valuable query tips:
@Natalie_Fischer RT @NathanBransford Your enemies when writing a query: vagueness, braggadocio, "creative" formatting, logorrhea, comps to Twilight.

I hope at least a few of those were helpful to you. If I missed anything great on Twitter last week that you caught let me know or leave me a link.

  15. I try to check in with twitter once in a while and usually find one or two good links, but there's so much other stuff on twitter it's hard to sort through it. I love that you found so many links on one topic! And the topic of agents is one of my faves. Thanks! christy
