Wednesday links: Putting your book to bed and types of agents

I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.

  1. When to Put the Baby (Your Book) to Bed, from Pub(lishing) Crawl: We’ve all given up, or at least thought of giving up, on a novel at some point. How do you know when you’re ready? Or maybe not ready, but that you should? Excerpt: “Think of every story you write as class you’ve taken on how to make your manuscript stronger. All manuscripts teach us something.”
  2. 4 Types of Literary Agents, from Books & Such Literary Management: Every agent has their own way of doing their job. Some of them have some traits in common, though. Here’s a look at four common types. Excerpt:4 “Recently I had a conversation with Dee, a potential new client, and our chat turned to four different approaches agents take to teaming up with authors. I explained to Dee some of those methods. I think they’re instructive in understanding how an agent can help to structure an author’s writing career.”
