Twitter Tuesday~Book Giveaways, Industry Advice, And WriteOnCon

Get your clicking finger ready because I've got a great list for you today! This first one is from Jane Friedman of Writer's Digest on questions about writing and publishing:
@JaneFriedman My latest Q&A on writing & publishing with @ShariLopatin: http://wp.me/pVVIy-bX

If you've ever wondered (or hopefully are getting close) what to ask when you get the Agent's Call for representation, agent Vickie Motter lays it out nicely for you here:
@Vickie_Motter The Call and questions you should ask the offering agent. Also, share your own Call story: http://www.urltwit.com//8tc6

If you're getting ready to pitch or query don't miss this one. Agent Natalie Fischer gives us a great review of her workshop on writing the perfect hook:
@ Natalie_Fischer As promised, a review of my workshop: how to write the perfect hook: http://bit.ly/lFNOX2  #ppwc11 #amwriting #askagent

Agent Weronika Janczuk brings us this tweet that clarifies doc vs. docx and why it's important:
@WeronikaJanczuk From lit agent Mary Kole: ".doc is not .docx" - › Why? Because Microsoft upgraded Word and wanted everyone... http://tumblr.com/xlp2dwfw0y

Because I love Elana so much and YOU I wanted to give you this chance to get in on winning her debut novel:

Agent Sara Megibow helps us with writer's platform:
@SaraMegibow Wow - awesome blog post "why your platform is growing slowly" at Savvy Authors: http://tinyurl.com/3tl9ae4

Agent Kate McKean brings home the reality about marketing:
@kate_mckean Everyday I get a query that says "I tried to self-publish this, but I didn't have time to market it, so I want a traditional publisher now."
@kate_mckean Either way, traditional or self-publishing, you need to have time to help market your work.

Editor extraordinaire Molly O'Neill brings us this Tweet about the upcoming WritOnCon even this May (I'll be there and hope you will too!):
@molly_oneill Super excited for this (FREE!) #WriteOnCon event w/ @JoSVolpe & @michellelit! RT @ElanaJ TRIFECTA OF AWESOME, May 16: http://bit.ly/lQBM3g
