Question trifecta!


1. Do you have any idea how often imprints have "committee meetings?" (Like when an editor says she is "taking a book to committee.") I'm wondering if its usually monthly, or what?


I don't know. I know when my books are "auditioning" so to speak, but I don't know the regularity of the meetings. I'll bet someone out there does though...feel free to chime in on the comments!

2. Generally, do agents and editors hate attorneys? Do they hate having attorneys as clients/writers?

no

3. Is Miss Snark a shortened form of Mistress of the Snark? It could be, you know.
but it's not. Just like Grandmother Snark is not a shortened form of Grand poobah mother of pearl Snark.

If you ever even have the option of 'poobah' you should take it.

It's not?
Another illusion shattered.

Re: Point 2:

Agents and editors don't hate attorneys any more than the rest of the world does. Hummph.

—an attorney who can't shop his current nonfiction project to four of the big five conglomerates due to live disputes involving those conglomerates, if only because said attorney actually gives a rat's [choose portion of anatomy] about the appearance of a conflict of interest
