Twitter Tuesday~Crickets Due To BEA

The agents and editors have been scarce with the tweets lately. I think it may be in part due to the excitement left over from BEA. But I did manage to catch a few for you! This first one is golden advice from agent Rachelle Gardner
@RachelleGardner Writing credentials and platform don't sell your novel, your WRITING does. Important truth in fiction! #pubtip 

Worried about the stigma of self-publishing holding you back from getting an agent? Agent Mandy Hubbard shines light on the subject:
@MandyHubbard epubbing pre-agent probably wont make a big impact either way, unless its a v. successful book.#askagent

Agent Deirdre Knight reminds us that Twitter isn't just for promotion:
@DeidreKnight Here's a #pubtipPls don't use Twitter just to endlessly self-promote without any genuine interaction. That's basically a #tweettip too 

If you write Sci-Fi/Fantasy then you don't want to miss this:

That should keep you busy while you're sipping your coffee. Be sure to come back tomorrow when I share the first stages of my journey to publication. If I missed any great tweets let me know!

  1. Heather, these are great tweets! You just continually amaze me of all that you do to support everyone. And, in turn it helps us too. That's what I love about the writing community... the support system.

  2. I love that you keep track of these for everyone! Rachelle Gardner always seems to have a lot of advice that's both positive and useful. It's nice, because some of the agents can seem a little negative on Twitter, or maybe it's just bc they're venting. Who knows.
