Twitter Tuesday~Contests, Conferences, & More

I took time out of my crazy editing week to drop in on Twitter and find you these excellent tweets. This first one if from agent Irene Goodman, a contest for historical fiction that you have until July 1st to enter!

If you have self-published a book (I'm giving my self-pubbed friends the eye right now) then you need to enter this contest from Writer's Digest!

Agent Vickie Motter talks YA and MG topics from the Whidbey Conference! If you write either of those you won't want to miss her blog this week!

My friend Roni brings us a great link on reaching non-writer readers (a must to boost those book sales):

If you don't know who the Bookanistas are then you probably haven't been around my blogging circle enough. They are fabulous ladies who blog about the books they love. Bookanista Carolina let's us know about a great cause they're supporting:

If you're submitting then you need to know about the Literary Rambles blog in which fabuous agents are spotlighted all the time. Here is agent Sarah LaPolla's spotlight:

Hopefully more than a few of those were helpful to you in some way. If I missed any great tweets let me know in the comments!
