Twitter Tuesday~Submissions, New Agents, & Contests

Wow what a week. I've been caught up in the whirlwind that is finishing a novel and preparing for editing. But of course I made time to drop in on Twitter and find a few good tweets for you peeps. This first one is an interview by Chuck Sambuchino of Writer's Digest featuring a new agent with Folio Literary:

  2. Another excellent Twitter Tuesday! I checked out Shelly's contest. That's incredible. Amazing yes! I might just pitch one of my new novels despite it's not adult paranormal. You never know. Maybe Suzie wants the next Janet Evonovich. :) Thanks Heather!
