FORE!

Just wanted to give everybody a heads-up. First, if you haven’t registered for WriteOnCon, YOU MUST REGISTER THIS INSTANT. Some lovely ladies around the blogosphere have put together an online writers’ conference featuring critiques, contests, and workshops with a whole slew of agents and editors. And the best part is, it’s free. WriteOnCon kicks off August 10 and continues through August 12, so don’t miss it!

Second, in honor of the recent release of Lee Nichols’s DECEPTION, awesome agent Kathleen Ortiz of Lowenstein Associates is hosting an awesome contest on her blog. The prize? Oh, just a TRIPLE PARTIAL CRITIQUE FROM THREE AWESOME AGENTS. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on the official contest post telling her who you would contact if you could communicate with ghosts and why. (You can also tweet about it, if you’re into that whole Twitter thing…) You can enter as many times as you want, but the contest closes tomorrow, so don’t delay.

Third, tomorrow’s interview features Taylor Martindale of Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency, and the reason I’m telling you this a day in advance is that Ms. Martindale’s agreed to FIELD YOUR QUESTIONS IN THE COMMENTS OF TOMORROW’S POST. It’s a one-day-only event, but as long as you leave your question in the comments sometime tomorrow, you should get a bona fide answer from a bona fide agent.
WELL, I THINK THAT ABOUT COVERS--I mean, I think that about covers it. Unless you have anything to add...

Krista, you must be a golfer. ;) Thanks for the alert!

Yep, Kris, I'm a golfer (if two visits to the driving range count). A very bad one. Hence the need for shouting "Fore!" a lot:)
