Kidlit agent/author update

August 10, 2011

Still *baking* in this heatwave, and not a drop of rain in way too long. We’re setting all the wrong kinds of records in Central TX. I much prefer warm weather to cold, but I’m dreaming of a nice December day in the 50s or 60s at this point.

I’ve put together a few interviews/wishlists from kidlit agents and writerly advice from kidlit authors. Summer is almost over (a girl can dream), so, writer-parents, get ready to send those sweeties back to school and polish up your WIPs and queries!

Clickable links below:

Author/Agent Mandy Hubbard

Author/Agent Jill Corcoran

Agent Karen Grencik

Long list of great agent interviews at Mother.Write. (Repeat.)

and, as always, you can find excellent agent/agency info at Casey McCormick’s site, Literary Rambles

and here are a few author sites I’ve enjoyed visiting:

Author Audrey Vernick shares advice on fellow writer, Anna Staniszewski’s blog

Author Pam Calvert’s helpful (& humorous!) site

Author Lisa Schroeder’s blog, full of great stuff…check out Motivational Mondays

Author Vijaya Bodach’s page for writers

If you’re working on “getting yourself out there”, and feel overwhelmed by social media outlets, make a beeline for expert advice from Author (and fellow Texas gal), Kristin Lamb’s blog.

***If you have a post (or page) you’d like to share with other writers, feel free to leave a comment with the link! ***

I’ll leave you with this Wednesday’s picture of puppy perfection. All together now….Awwwww!

  1. Wow, Jessica. There’s so much here, I don’t know where to start. Thanks!

  2. Very welcome:) Thanks for stopping by!
