Wednesday links: Agent interviews

Tags

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.

Who’s ready for an awesome April? The weather is warming up, the snow’s almost gone (or completely gone, if you live somewhere nicer than here), and summer is so close I can taste it.

There are a lot of books I haven’t recommended here yet, but that I eventually want to get to. One that holds a special place in my heart is Howl’s Moving Castle, by Diana Wynne Jones. That said, I’m not here today to recommend Howl’s Moving Castle; instead, I want to introduce you to another of Jones’ books.
